Hulk Hogan doesn’t want or need Howard Stern to act as peacemaker in his ongoing sex-tape litigation with former best friend Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.
Hogans lawyer declined an invitation from Stern to have the wrestling star and Bubba together on his popular SiriusXM radio show so Stern could talk Hogan into dropping his invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against the Tampa shock jock and his ex-wife Heather Clem.
“Absolutely not. It’s not going to happen,” Hogan’s lawyer David Houston said. “I appreciate Howard Stern’s offer. I know it has entertainment value, but this isn’t entertainment. We’re dealing with some drastic consequences in my client’s life.”
Houston added that a settlement with the Clems might be possible in the future, but that Bubba and his legal team failed to provide satisfactory answers about the tape’s origins and security leading up to their legal filing Monday.
“We appreciate Howard Sterns’ recommendation and insight, and certainly resolution is never anything to be avoided if a settlement is possible. However, under the current situation, we have a client who has been damaged, and as such, we have to pursue our legal remedies until we arrive at a point where we truly understand the actions of all players,” Houston said.
“Once that happens, the idea of resolution is never off the table,” he said.
