    Wrestler Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against former spouse Linda Bollea, claiming she lied and defamed him in her new autobiography.

    According to the St. Petersburg Times, the lawsuit alleges that Linda wrote Wrestling the Hulk—My Life Against the Ropes in an effort to revive her career.

    In the book, Linda accuses Hogan (real name Terry Bollea), of abusing her during their marriage, which ended in 2009. She also claims that her ex had homosexual encounters as well.

    The 18-page lawsuit states that such allegations are not only false but have "harmed the reputation of Mr. Bollea, exposed him to distrust, hatred, contempt and ridicule."

    Hogan is demanding a jury trial and a halt to his ex-wife's comments, which have also been broadcast and published while Linda has been out promoting the book.

    News of the suit comes just a couple of weeks after it was revealed that Linda received a little more than 70 percent of the couple's liquid assets as part of their divorce settlement.
