Tampa Radio: Bubba Sells House At Discount

Radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge (born Todd Alan Clem) has finally sold his home in St. Petersburg, FL, for $1.39 million, according to

The property first popped up on the market in 2017 for $1.8 million. The price dropped to $1.5 million in 2018, and even hit the auction block for $900,000. Earlier this year it came back on the market at $1.39 million, and looks to have sold for the discounted amount.

There’s some sordid history that comes with the house. Clem secretly taped his wife at the time, Heather, having an intimate encounter with wrestling legend Hulk Hogan in the residence. An edited version of the video appeared on the website Gawker, which led to a lawsuit and the eventual demise of the gossip site.

Clem is back in the news cycle again, this time for offensive comments made on his show years ago by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Last year, Clem agreed to settle a ratings tampering scandal and pay an undisclosed amount to Nielsen, which asked for $1 million in damages.

The gated community by the lake offers scenic water views. The 6,367-square-foot home has four bedrooms and five baths. The living and dining rooms overlook a lanai and pool.

Clem's ongoing legal and financial issues will probably diminish any returns he realizes from the sale of his home.

In addition to the Nielsen ratings lawsuit, he reportedly owes “$47,000 in past due property taxes, and owed close to $200,000 to the IRS as of August 2018.”
