Earlier this month, the wrestling legend announced that he was suing Bubba and Clem for secretly recording Hogan’s sexual encounter, and also filing a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker (which posted the leaked footage).
Hogan has now, however, settled with Bubba and Clem, reports TMZ.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but Bubba has released a letter apologizing for having suggested that Hogan played a part in the tape’s recording and distribution.
“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,” wrote Bubba.
He added that he is “committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape.”
There’s been no indication that Hogan plans to drop his suits against Clem or Gawker.
