Linda Hogan was sickened by Hulk Hogan's sex tape.
The 53-year-old former reality TV star - who split from the retired wrestler in 2007 after 24 years of marriage - admits she wasn't shocked that her ex-husband cheated on her with her friend Heather Clem but was disgusted that she only found out about it from the leaked recording.
She told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "I knew something was going on behind my back, I just didn't know it was so close to home. I was at her wedding! That tape was sickening. Watching them do that behind my back turned my stomach."
The mother-of-two - who shares daughter Brooke, 24, and son Nick, 22, with her 59-year-old ex - says the affair which happened shortly before their split clarified a lot of issues in their marriage.
She said: "He couldn't even look me in the eye sometimes during our relationship, and I bet he thought I was too busy to notice his lies."
Hulk recently claimed he will never talk to his best friend Bubba the Love Sponge again over the leaked tape.
Bubba - real name Todd Alan Clem - released an apology letter earlier this week in which he revoked his previous statement that Hulk leaked the tape for publicity and was aware he was being filmed,
Meanwhile, Hulk recently lost his bid for a temporary restraining order against the website Gawker - which is currently showing a one minute and 40 second snippet of his intimate encounter with Heather - but a hearing on his request for an injunction will take place on November 8.
He has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the website but Gawker has countered the case should be dismissed because they were not involved in recording the poor quality footage.
