    Hulk Hogan is trying to take down Gawker one more time.

    After his $140 million legal victory against the gossip website, the famous pro wrestler has filed a second lawsuit over his surreptitiously recorded sex tapes — hitting the site with a new claim for allegedly leaking sealed court documents to the National Enquirer that quoted him making racists remarks.

    In a 2007 encounter with his best friend’s wife, Hogan unleashed an ugly tirade about his daughter Brooke’s black boyfriend.

    “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f–k some n—-r, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n—-r worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F—ing n—-r,” Hogan said, according to a transcript of the recording.

    WWE immediately fired Hogan, scrubbing his name from its website and Hall of Fame.

    His “income was cut off, his legacy in entertainment was severely damaged (if not completely destroyed), and his global brand was forever tarnished,” the new Florida suit says.

    Hogan says Gawker slipped the transcript, which was filed under seal in the then-pending suit between the two parties over a second sex tape with the same woman, Heather Clem. At the time, Clem was married to Hogan’s best friend, radio shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.

    The National Enquirer published the story, which “Gawker had been threatening to release publicly for months,” in July, according to the suit.

    Just as the Enquirer posted the damaging transcript online, Gawker CEO Nick Denton wrote a piece on his blog predicting that Hogan’s “real secret” would soon be revealed, the suit says.

    Minutes later, Gawker editor A.J. Daulerio tweeted to Hogan “XOXOXO” with a link to the Enquirer posting that included the confidential transcript, according to court papers.

    Hogan immediately admitted that he had made the offensive remarks and apologized.

    In the new suit, Hogan is also going after a group of Florida residents, including another radio DJ named Mike “Cowhead” Calta, for sending at least one of his secretly recorded sex tapes to Gawker.

    Law enforcement officials declined to pursue criminal charges against Calta and others involved in the alleged leak.

    Gawker is appealing the $140 million jury verdict over the first sex tape and has denied that it leaked the sealed transcript to the Enquirer.

    The new suit is for unspecified money damages.

    Gawker Media responded in a statement Monday, “This is getting ridiculous. Hulk Hogan is a litigious celebrity abusing the court system to control his public image and media coverage.”

    “As we’ve said before and are happy to say again: Gawker did not leak the information,” the statement said. “It’s time for Hulk Hogan to take responsibility for his own words, because the only person who got Hulk Hogan fired from the WWE is Hulk Hogan.”

    What about Donald Sterling and his illegally taped conversations? Hopefully this sends a message to the media that illegally recorded conversations or videos are off limits.

    Those conversations were not illegally taped.

    Hogan fucking Bubba's wife was also not illegally taped.

    Not sure how they're going to prove their case, but I hope the Hulkster gets to double dip into Gawker's slimy, shitty, pockets.

    No need. All the people he named in the suit are going to fall all over themselves to settle, after what he got from Gawker, and that money will pay for pursuing the hold outs.

    My expectations for this video were much higher, henceforth, I did not enjoy it.

    To offset my bad feelings from watching your video, I will post the following pic to try and compensate:

    They should make him give that money to the boy's family.

    Unless Sterling knew he was being taped, those conversations were taped and distributed illegally. I can't believe he'd have any reason to knowingly be taped with his mistress.

    This would essentially be the "big leg drop" to Gawker if he won.
