TNA News: Awesome Kong, Bubba the Love Sponge Lawsuits, Future

After the incident involving Bubba the Love Sponge and Awesome Kong had apparently died down, it appears things have been escalated substantially this week.

Kia Stevens (Awesome Kong) filed a lawsuit against Todd Clem (Bubba the Love Sponge) in Hillsborough County Court, claiming she was threatened by Clem over the phone.

According to Dave Meltzer, Stevens claimed she received a phone call at 5:08 a.m. on 2/10 from a blocked number, recognized the voice as Clem, who she alleged threatened to “sucker punch her until she stopped breathing” and said “You’ll be dead like all those other n****** in Haiti you fat black bitch.” Stevens said she called AT&T, who refused to identify the number. She said the caller identified himself as Bubba the Love Sponge and threatened to come to her house. She said he also said, “What d’ya think about that, Monkey Kong? What? Those big fat Jimmy Walker lips ain’t talking shit now, huh?

Bubba responded:
This morning I was made aware of allegations made in a petition for full bill of discovery by Ms. Kia Stevens, a professional wrestler with Total Nonstop Action Wrestlng. The allegations in this petition are 100% false. To be clear, everything contained in this petition is not true. Ms. Stevens attributing outrageous racist staements and physical threats to me is disgusting.

We can prove without any doubt the allegations made in this petition are flase. First, Ms. Stevens claims that she was called on the air at 5:08 a.m. on 2/10. We are not even on the air until 6 a.m. Eastern time. We have phone records and eye witnesses that account for my every movement that day from 4:50 a.m. forward. No call was made to Ms. Stevens at all

We will be pursuing all legal remedies available to us in the State of Florida to fight these deliberately malicious allegations.
