The following is from TMZ.com:
Hulk Hogan just dropped his $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for leaking his sex tape online … TMZ has learned.
As we reported, Hulk sued the website last October for posting a minute-long clip of him doing the dirty with the wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge … a tape that was recorded more than 6 years ago.
It’s unclear why Hulk dropped the case — but according to the court docs, Hulk voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit “without prejudice” … meaning he can refile if he wishes. As of now, the case is closed.
Hulk also sued Bubba the Love Sponge for unspecified damages — accusing him of leaking the footage to the media — but that lawsuit was settled, and Bubba apologized on the air.
