Hulk Hogan has filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Linda Hogan. This is due to his portrayal in her auto-biography "Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes," which was released last summer.

In the book, Hogan is portrayed as a manipulative man who threatened to kill Brooke's VH-1 series if he wasn't a regular cast member, someone who cheated on Linda and was physically and mentally abusive. She also alleges that he has had a homosexual relationship with Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake.
