Awesome Kong Files Lawsuit Against Bubba The Love SpongeÂ®, Bubba Responds
www.wrestlinginc.com – Kia Stevens, a.k.a Awesome Kong, has filed a lawsuit against Todd Clem, aka Bubba the Love SpongeÂ®, and AT&T. According to a report on Courthouse News Service, Kong claims that Bubba called her at 5 a.m. on Feb. 10 from a blocked number. She alleges that he threatened to come to her house and “sucker punch her until she stopped breathing”, and then said, “You’ll be dead like all those other n—-s in Haiti you fat black b—h … F–k Haiti!”
Kong noted that she didn’t respond, at which point the caller who identified himself as Bubba the Love SpongeÂ® stated, “‘What d’ya think about that, Monkey Kong? … What? Those big fat Jimmy Walker lips ain’t talking s–t now, huh?’”
Kong says she recognized the caller’s voice to be Bubba’s, however stated that AT&T refused to identity the caller. She is suing AT&T, demanding that they release records that would identity the caller.
Kong had attacked the radio show host at last month’s iMPACT! taping in Orlando. Kong was upset due to a “F— Hati” [sic] tweet Bubba posted on his Twitter earlier that weekend. She has been taking part in fundraising efforts for the relief fund for Haiti, which was rocked by an earthquake last month.
Bubba refuted the allegations this morning with the following statement:
“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 Wrestling. The allegations in this petition are one hundred percent false. To be clear; everything contained in this petition is not true. Ms. Stevens attributing outrageous racist statements and physical threats to me is disgusting.
“We can prove without any doubt the allegations made in this petition are false. First Ms. Stevens claims that she was called on the air, at 5:08 AM on February 10th, we are not even on the air until 6 AM Eastern time. We have phone records and eyewitnesses that account for my every movement that day from 4:50 AM 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.”
