Hulk Hogan, according to documents filed in Pinellas County, Florida, on Thursday reached a settlement with Cox (LOL) Radio and personalities Mancow and Matt “Spice Boy” Lloyd (from the Bubba the Love Sponge Show).
Bubba and Hulk were best friends and had a prearranged deal where Hulk would bang Bubbas wife Heather. Bubba then secretly recorded the session and then his employee, Spice Boy stole the tape from Bubbas collection and held it for ransom. Hulk could also be overheard using racial slurs on the tape which is why he was so adamant that it not be released.
Hulk originally won a lawsuit over Gawker media for $140M for releasing the tape, but Gawker filed for bankruptcy and he only received $30M. This lawsuit came as Hulk sought to receive $15 million in additional damages from Spice Boy, Nicole Carrega (Spice Boys Wife) and Keith Davidson (Spices Lawyer), according to the Tampa Bay Times, because they were accused of conspiring to leak and sell the footage to TMZ and thedirty.com.
