That was quick, wasn’t it? It seems that Hulk Hogan, the Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling star has settled one of his two lawsuits stemming from the release of his sex tape. Upon it’s release, rumors flew that Hulk Hogan had a part in the scandal, but Bubba the Love Sponge Clem confirmed today that Hogan was caught unaware with the footage.
Bubba the Love Sponge Clem released a statement today via his radio show, and will re-read the statement again on Tuesday, saying that “I am now convinced that Hulk Hogan was unaware of the presence of the recording device in my bedroom,” Clem said. “I am convinced [Hulk Hogan] had no knowledge that he was being taped…It is my belief that Hulk 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.” While we were pretty positive he didn’t leak his own sex tape, one can never be too sure! There were rumors of MORE sex tapes that could’ve been released-we’re glad they weren’t!
The Hulk, who’s real name is Terry Bollea, had his attorney release a statement as well today, saying, “Mr. Bollea is pleased that Mr. Clem finally stated the truth and apologized for his false statements.” A media spokesperson for the Hogan crew said that the terms of the settlement were confidential. Too bad, because we’re all really curious as to what took place behind the scenes!
His other lawsuit, a $100 million dollar claim against the website responsible for the leak, Gawker Media, is still in the works, and the video still remains on their site, even after the Hulk tried unsuccessfully to get a restraining order against Gawker Media for immediate removal of the one minute and 40 second video.
A hearing is scheduled on Nov 8th regarding Hogan’s request for an injunction.
