The weird story of Hulk Hogan and Bubba The Love Sponge‘s friendship has come to a bit of a conclusion today, as TMZ reports that the two have settled out of court over the lawsuit Hogan filed against Bubba. In it, Hogan held his friend responsible for releasing the sex tape starring Hogan and Bubba’s ex-wife, Heather Clem.
Prior to filing the suit, Hogan told VH1 that he didn’t believe Bubba had anything to do with the public release of the tape, but days later he changed his tune and submitted a claim against him. Bubba then implicated Hogan, saying Hulk was actually the one who may have released the tape. Now, as a result of the settlement, Bubba has released a statement saying “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…[I am] committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape.”
Hogan still has a $100 million suit pending against Gawker Media for releasing the tape, and seeks additional damages from Heather Clem.
