Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan has settled a lawsuit with a disc jockey over a sex tape involving Hogan and the DJ’s wife. A statement by Hogan’s publicist Monday says the terms of the settlement are confidential. Hogan said in a lawsuit earlier this month that 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. The disc jockey, Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, apologized to Hogan on Monday. Clem also said that he’s convinced Hogan was unaware he was being filmed.
