Leave it to Howard Stern to try to solve Bubba the Love Sponge’s legal problems surrounding the sex tape starring his former best friend, Hulk Hogan, and Bubba’s now-ex-wife, Heather Clem (pictured above left with Bubba in 2009).
“I’m getting you out of this lawsuit,” Stern tells Bubba on his SiriusXM show Wednesday (Oct. 17).
“That would be awesome,” Clem says.
Hogan filed state and federal lawsuits on Monday stating he was unaware he was being recorded while having sex with Clem — with Bubba’s blessing — and that the release of the video has caused damage upward of $100 million.
“I will get Hogan and Bubba together,” Stern says. “I think what Bubba is saying is making a lot of sense. I think if Hogan could hear it and I can translate a little bit and calm everyone down, I think we could see through this … I think I can get Hulk Hogan to take you out of this lawsuit.”
Hogan’s lawyer, David Houston, tells the New York Daily News on Wednesday that the case is proceeding.
“This is not the Bubba Show, it’s litigation. Thanks to Bubba for making our case against him better,” Houston says. “We look forward to seeing him in court. At that time it will not be a runaway rant. His time is coming.”
