Hulk Hogan Settles Lawsuit Over Sex Tape
CLEARWATER (AP) — Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan entered into a legal settlement with a disc jockey over a sex tape involving Hogan and the DJ’s wife.
A statement by Hogan’s publicist on Monday morning says the terms of the settlement are confidential.
In a lawsuit filed Oct. 15, Hogan said he had consensual sex with his best friend’s wife, Heather Clem, six years ago in the Clems’ home, but he didn’t know he was being videotaped.
On Monday, Bubba the Love Sponge Clem apologized to Hogan, whose real name is Bollea. Clem also said that he’s convinced Hogan was unaware he was being filmed.
A lawsuit is still pending against the gossip website Gawker, which put excerpts of the video on its site.
