A lawyer for wrestler Hulk Hogan has vowed to take "all necessary steps" to prevent an unauthorized sex tape from hitting the porn market.
Grainy video footage of the explicit encounter, featuring Hogan and a mystery brunette, has reportedly been sold to bosses at adult film company Vivid Entertainment without the grappler's knowledge.
David Houston, a legal representative for Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, insists the tryst was "secretly filmed" and he has blasted the tape as an "outrageous invasion of privacy."
A statement issued by Houston to TMZ.com reads: "Terry Bollea is appalled at the unauthorized release of a secretly filmed video. (Hogan) neither approved of the filming nor the release of the same. It is clearly an outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust if it is genuine."
"We will take all necessary steps to enforce both civil and criminal liability."
It is not known when the encounter was filmed.
