Hulk Hogan has settled with one-third of the parties he blames for a sensational sex tape that introduced the world to his third python.
Former Hulk best buddy and kinda-famous DJ Bubba the Love Sponge has squared with the pro wrestling legend over the raunchy tape of Hulk banging Bubba’s then-wife Heather Clem.
But Hulk is still flexing legal muscle against Clem and Gawker, the website that received the leaked tape, edited it for length (and presumably content) and displayed if for the world to, um, enjoy.
Bubba issued this apology:
Re: Public Apology to Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) and Retraction of Statements
After further investigation, I am now convinced that Hulk Hogan was unaware of the presence of the recording device in my bedroom. I am convinced he had no knowledge that he was being taped. Additionally, I am certain that he had no role in the release of the video. It is my belief that Terry is not involved, and has not ever been involved, in trying to release the video, or exploit it, or otherwise gain from the video’s release in any way. Regrettably, when Hulk filed the lawsuit against me, I instinctively went on the offensive. The things that I said about him and his children were not true. I was wrong and I am deeply sorry for my reaction, and for the additional pain that it caused Hulk and his children on top of the pain that they already were feeling from having learned that Terry was taped without his knowledge, and the public release of the video.
I am committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape and holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
Hulk’s terms with Bubba are unknown. Hulk is seeking a whopping $100 million from Gawker.
