Police Report Reveals New Details of Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Leak

November 20, 2015 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

– A police report uploaded to Bubba the Love Sponge’s website gives new details on the Hulk Hogan set tape leak. The report reveals, among other things, why the DVDs containing the incident were at Bubba Clem’s offices, where (as previously reported) an employee named Matt “Spiceboy” Loyd stole them.

According to the report, Clem decided to take the DVDs from his home and bring them to the office because he was in the middle of a rather ugly divorce with his wife Heather at the time. He wanted to prevent Heather from taking the tapes for use against him and moved them to an office in his studio. The tapes were again moved to a new studio that he was moving into in December of 2011, being placed in an office storage area that was established as for his personal use.

Clem discovered the DVDs were missing when he went to go check for them after it leaked in 2012. In May of 2014 he received pictures on Twitter showing the case of one of the other DVDs; he believed that Loyd had stolen them so he could use them to discredit Clem and possibly get him fired as the two were at odds at that time.

Tampa police were able to track down the email and computer used, locating Loyd eventually. He admitted he created the Twitter account in question but said he forged Clem’s handwriting identifying the DVD in order to screw with him. Investigators eventually learned that the FBI obtained three Hogan-related DVDs that were in Loyd’s possession.

The report corroborates the previous report that Loyd used a California intermediary to leak the material to TMZ and claims he also gave the tape to Gawker in an attempt to raise interest in sale of the material to a porn distributor. The police report says that on at least two of the three DVDs, Hogan shows no indication of being aware that he was being filmed.

For whatever reason, the DA declined to pursue theft and extortion charges against Loyd and others who were involved.
