Hulk Hogan Still Struggling With Self-confidence After Sex Tape Leak


Hulk Hogan

The fighter-turned-film and TV star recently won his privacy battle against Gawker Media bosses after editors published a sex tape he appeared in without his permission. The intimate footage featured Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, making love to a friend's wife at their home in Florida back in 2007.

The athlete insisted he had no idea he was being recorded at the time and last week (ends18Mar16), a Florida jury awarded him $115 million (£81.2 million) in damages. He scored another $25 million (£17.7 million) in punitive damages on Monday (21Mar16).
