Bubba ‘Apologizes’ To Hulk Hogan

Was It A PR Stunt?

A New York publicist has released a statement saying wrestling star Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea has reached a settlement with onetime friend and Tampa Bay shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem centered on footage made public from a videotape made of Hogan having sex with Clem's then-wife.

According to Eric Deggans at, as part of the settlement, Clem played a statement on his show for WHPT-FM (102.5 the Bone) Monday morning apologizing for insulting Hogan and his children, saying "after further investigation" he concluded the wrestler was unaware he was being videotaped in 2006 while having sex with his now-ex-wife, Heather Cole. The terms of the settlement were not made public.

The quick resolution on this lawsuit -- according to the release, Hogan will continue his legal action against Cole and the owner of the website which first published video clips from the footage, -- will likely leave critics accusing the men of colluding on a gigantic publicity stunt.
