Mystery Of Who Leaked Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Grows, Even Gawker Doesn’t Know

By Radar Staff

The mystery of who released the Hulk Hogan sex tape has just grown deeper – even Gawker, the site that broadcast a small portion of the tape doesn’t know the identity of the person who leaked it, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Hogan filed a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker, and also sued his sex partner on the tape, Heather Clem, and her then-husband, DJ Bubba the Love Sponge.

Radar has learned exclusively that the person behind the release of the tape used an intermediary to get it to Gawker, keeping his or her identity secret from the web site.

“Even Gawker doesn’t know who’s really behind this,” a source familiar with the situation told Radar.

In Gawker’s first post about the tape, the site described receiving it from an anonymous source who wanted no payment or credit.

But that source, Radar has learned, is merely a front for the person really distributing it, and that person has still managed to keep his or her identity hidden.

As Radar reported earlier, sources close to the situation say it was a disgruntled ex-employee of Bubba’s but no one has been able to produce a name.

Meanwhile Gawker is not surrendering to Hulk in their legal battle, and plans to slam the former champ into a turnbuckle when the ref isn’t looking.  (Translation for non-pro wrestling fans: they’re going to oppose any attempt by Hulk’s team for an injunction to take the tape down.)

While Gawker is committed to the legal battle, the tape was shopped to other media outlets in recent years, giving Hulk’s lawyers more potential avenues to find who is behind it.
