Hulk Hogan has settled at least one of the three lawsuits he's pursuing since Gawker released a small portion of his secretly-recorded sex tape.
Even though Bubba the Love Sponge was fully aware that a camera was recording his buddy's bang sesh with his wife, Heather Clem, he has settled his dispute with the wrestler.
The DJ had previously said he suspected that Hulk "could have had something to do with the leak of it," but has now said otherwise on his radio show and explained:
"I am now convinced that Hulk Hogan was unaware of the presence of the recording device in my bedroom. I am convinced [Hulk Hogan] had no knowledge that he was being taped…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."
Does this mean they can start wearing their matching friendship necklaces (above) again? LOLz!
Although the two parties have kissed and made up outside the court of law, Mz. Clem and Gawker haven't been excused from the Hulkamania.
