But the site's founder, Nick Denton, believes the sex tape scandal is far from over. On Friday, after a jury granted the former wrestler $115 million — $15 million more than he asked for — the British journalist released a statement about his legal loss.
On Monday, the wrestler testified in his lawsuit against Gawker Media, who posted a secretly-recorded sex tape from 2007 of him and Heather Clem, AKA the ex-wife of his former friend Bubba the Love Sponge.
The 62-year-old revealed under oath that he was in a really bad place at the time the filthy flick was filmed, admitting he had "bottomed out" and "just gave in and let my guard down."
The reality star admitted he was discouraged about his failing marriage with Linda Hogan, saying:
"A lot of things were happening at the same time. I was trying unsuccessfully to get my wife back. She told me verbally over and over, 'You're too old, you're too slow, you don't turn me on. I want to find somebody younger.'"
He also explained the shock jock was the guy he had turned to during those tough times, and said that the 49-year-old had actually been encouraging him to sleep with his then-wife, testifying that he said things like:
The on-air personality got particularly passionate regarding the tweets where Ye calls his ex a "stripper," and decided to bring up wife Kim Kardashian West's own x-rated past, saying:
"The idea that he's going after Wiz like this is crazy. The idea that you're talking about Amber being a stripper — you're not saying anything that she hasn't admitted herself. As a matter of fact, Kanye, you're the one who gave this stripper her come-up and, by the way, we recall meeting your wife on her back."
"It's over between Rico and I. This is where I part ways and all bets are off … I can't for the life of me understand why Rico would video himself f*cking 'raw dog' ONE of his MANY extraneous whores that 'trick' on him for his money."
AND SHE INCLUDED THE SEX TAPE TO PROVE IT.
The Happily Divorced star (ha) reportedly went on to call out 20 of the women by name, who she referred to as "extraneous Kim Kardashian wanna be's." She also shared her plans to get tested for STDs since discovering the ongoing infidelity.
Ironically enough… Arnold appeared on the Wendy Williams show last year where she talked about the secret to her marriage with Rico, and her very strong opinion against sex tapes. Watch (below)!
A rep for Hines said in a statement:
"This is a private and deeply personal matter between my wife and me, and I do not want to comment any further at this time."
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
