CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing his ex-wife, claiming she lied and defamed him in her new book.

The 18-page lawsuit claims Linda Bollea wrote "Wrestling the Hulk – My Life Against the Ropes" to help revive her career. She wrote that her husband abused her during their marriage and had homosexual encounters.

Terry Bollea says the claims have harmed his reputation. He's demanding a jury trial and a halt to his ex-wife's comments. He says she has also made claims during promotional interviews on national television.

Linda Bollea received more than 70 percent of the couple's assets in their recent divorce settlement.
