With reports circulating that a sex tape of Hulk Hogan is being shopped around, the attorney for the famed wrestler has issued a stern warning to anyone who's considering distributing it.
David Houston tells E! News that Hogan "neither approved of the filming nor the release of the same," and that: "It is clearly an outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust if it is genuine. We will take all necessary steps to enforce both civil and criminal liability."
Existence of the tape became known Wednesday when Vivid Entertainment CEO Steve Hirsch told TMZ.com it had been shopped to him.
Houston and Hogan also apparently know who the as-yet unidentified woman in the video is.
"We are two shades short of referring her to the state attorney in Florida," Houston said. "This is a felony in Florida."
Hogan told TMZ he believed the tape must have been made when his drinking and partying got out of hand in the wake of his divorce in 2007. Hogan, who's real name is Terry Bollea, has since remarried.
