Hulk Hogan ranted against ex-wife Linda Hogan on tape

Hulk Hogan raged he didn't want his ex-wife Linda Hogan to be allowed to ever see him again even if he was dying, leaked transcripts from his sex tape have revealed.

The 61-year-old wrestler has been at the centre of a race row the last few days following the release of transcripts from the audio of the unauthorised recording which claim he used the 'N-word' while discussing his daughter Brooke's apparent boyfriend.

Now, according to a report by RadarOnline.com, Hogan is alleged to have launched into a tirade against his former spouse Linda, telling Bubba 'The Love Sponge' Clem - whose wife Heather Clem Hogan has sex with in the footage - to keep her away from him on his deathbed and hatching a plan to withhold money from her when they legally split.

The website claims Hogan is heard saying to his former friend: "Dude, the only thing I will ever ask of you ... I don't know how you will pull this off ... is, if I am ever on my death bed, you cannot let Linda come and visit me."

Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - then starts speaking about his $4.25 million Las Vegas residence and contemplates asking SoBe Entertainment mogul Cecile Barker, whom he refers to as a "black billionaire guy" elsewhere on the audio, to buy it off him to stop Linda getting her hands on the real estate.

He allegedly said: "If I get divorced, Linda will make me sell it. F**k it. Cecile will buy it and give it back to me after the divorce."

Hogan - who was fired by WWE following the initial reports of him using a racial slur - also rants against Linda for getting too friendly with a "half-gay" guy who they met while filming an episode of their reality TV show 'Hogan Knows Best', dismissing him with a derogatory homosexual slang word.

The grappling legend allegedly can be heard to say: "VH1 wanted me to do a big thing and go back to the house I grew up in. So we knock on the door and a big fag lives there now! This half-gay (guy) was enamoured with Linda."

Hogan's tirade against his ex-wife Linda - with whom he has two adult children, Nick and Brooke - is consistent with the time frame the sex tape is believed to have been made as his marriage fell apart in 2007 leading to Linda filing for divorce in November 2007.

Hogan has previously admitted he fell into a deep depression at the time as he was hit with divorce papers and he had to deal with the fallout from his son Nick being charged with dangerous driving due to car crash he had which left his best friend John Graziano with serious life changing injuries. Nick was eventually jailed for the offence.

Hogan has a $100 million lawsuit pending against Gawker - the website that originally leaked the sex tape in 2012 - for invasion of privacy.

The case will go to court later this year.
