One small sex-tape victory for Hulk Hogan: The wrestling legend has settled his lawsuit against former friend, Tampa shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge.
Financial terms of the settlement were not known, but Bubba (born Todd Clem) issued an apology for all to see, TMZ reports. It says, in part: 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 videos release in any way.
Hogan is continuing with his $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for publishing the randy clip and seeking damages from Bubbas ex, Heather Clem, who was Hogans, um, partner in crime.

Lucky magazine is taking some heat over its November issue. Britney Spears is the cover girl and looks a little too prim. Seems The X Factor judge was photoshopped like crazy, appearing too sleek, with too-coiffed hair (it may be a wig) with too-white teeth. Magazine eds were forced to apologize, tweeting: Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and were sorry to have let some of you down.
