Bubba played the apology after coming back from a commercial break ... and the audio was sped up and hard to listen to ... just like a legal notice at the end of a car commercial.

Hulk Hogan
has settled his lawsuit against his ex-BFF, Bubba the Love Sponge, over the sex tape scandal ... but he is pressing on with his lawsuits against Bubba's ex-wife and Gawker Media.

Financial terms of the settlement were not released, but clearly a public mea culpa from Bubba, real name Todd Alan Clem, was part of the deal.

Bubba released an apology letter today ... saying he now believes Hulk had no idea he was being recorded and that Hulk did not play a part in releasing the tape.

Bubba continues ... "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 video’s release in any way."

Bubba closed the letter by saying he is "committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape."

Hulk is continuing forward with his $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for publishing the tape. He is also seeking damages from Bubba's ex-wife ... the sex tape co-star, Heather Clem.

so Hulk just wants to screw her over again? she doesn't have anything, isn't famous, and I seriously doubt that she was the one installing/running the video system as that doesn't really seem like a gal thing (but does seem like a guy thing ie: bubba).

This only makes me believe HulK Hogan had everything to do with the sex tape. Its ovious Bubba knew about the tape from day one.
Now all of a sudden Hulk settles his case with Bubba and Bubba supposly admits that Hulk knew nothing about it.
Do these 2 really think Americans are that dam stupid.
What a bunch of LOSERS..

They "settled" this in the Planning stages. Now they sue the fools dumb enough to release it and split the proceeds as Neither of them is relevant enough to EARN an income.

If Hulk would just shut up, nobody would have known about this tape.. Nobody wants to see this old guy in a sex tape--Hulk has become completely pathetic and desperate for attention.

I do not buy this whole mess, this looks like they plotted to get attention/press for themselves.
All while gaining funds and sticking it to the exes.

TMZ previously reported that Hulk contacted the FBI over this matter. I don't believe it. Other than the Hulk's publicist telling you that he contacted the FBI, what proof does TMZ have?
