Hulk Hogan Awarded $115 Million in Gawker Sex Tape Lawsuit


Hulk Hogan was just awarded $115 million in his lawsuit against Gawker for publishing his sex tape online.

via TMZ:

Hogan had only sued for $100 million … but the jury decided it wasn’t enough and bumped it up to $115 million. 

The breakdown — $55 million for economic injuries and $60 million for emotional distress. He could get even more with punitive damages. 

Hogan had argued that he had no idea he was being recorded when he had sex with his friend’s wife at their home in Florida back in 2007. 

Gawker published 1 minute and 50 seconds of the video without Hulk’s permission. Hogan claimed it was the ultimate invasion of his privacy. 

Representatives for Gawker say the company plans to appeal the judgement.
