Is Heather Clem Still Married To Bubba Love Sponge & Did She Have Affair With Hulk Hogan

Heather Clem is a controversial hottie who rose to the spotlight for being an obedient wife to her husband in one of the most ironic ways.

Not only is she popularly known as the former wife to Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, a radio host and close friend of former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, Heather is more famous for being the playmate who had an adulterous romp with Hogan in a 2012 sex video.


Heather Clem was born Heather Dawn Cole on July 1, 1974, in West Virginia, USA. No information is available about her parents, early life, and education but we do know she graduated from the University of Arizona.

Heather Clem’s Affair With Hulk Hogan

Heather was relatively Bubba’s unknown ex-wife until a scandalous sex tape involving her and Terry Bollea popularly known as Hulk Hogan was leaked online in 2012 by Gawker, a New York-based media company.

The escapade took place around 2006 when Heather was still dating Bubba and Hogan was married to his then-wife, Linda. Interestingly, the illicit affair was actually Bubba’s idea and while Hulk Hogan’s marriage was in crisis, his best friend Bubba, offered up Heather to cheer up his buddy after his marriage started crumbling and Hogan consented to it. At the time the sex tape was shot, Hogan blamed his then-wife Linda her for his infidelity, alleging that she drove him to cheat because she was emotionally and verbally abusive to him.

On the other hand, Heather claims she and Bubba were in an open relationship where he didn’t mind her having other sexual partners and enjoyed making video recordings of her romps. So after being compelled by her then spouse, Heather and Hulk Hogan had sex in a bedroom at Bubba’s home, although she claims she and the former WWE heavyweight champ were unaware they were being filmed by Bubba.

Several weeks later after Heather realized that Bubba had surreptitiously recorded the explicit footage, she became upset demanding the video be destroyed. She believed he had done so until the tape appeared on Gawker in October 2012, with all concerned parties claiming they had no idea who leaked the video to the media company.

Consequently, Hulk Hogan sued Gawker for sharing the short clip which quickly went viral. He argued that the publicized video represented an invasion of his privacy, inflicted mental harassment and damaged his personal life. The former WWE heavyweight champion received $140 million in damages from Gawker in 2016. He also sought damages from Bubba the Love Sponge and his estranged wife Heather Clem for filming him in the sex act which he said was recorded without his permission.

When Gawker leaked the video clip online, Heather said she just wanted the whole thing to fade away but felt more embarrassed when Hogan started talking to the press and went to court. She, however, testified for his case against Gawker Media and later publicly apologised to Hogan. Bubba and Hogan reportedly settled the lawsuit following the sex tape leak for $5,000.

But the short clip was just one of the other multiple times Heather had made out with Hogan at her then-husband’s behest. The duo had sex on four separate occasions in her bedroom, at his home, in Clem’s studio, and once at a Tennessee hotel.

Multiple sources later claimed Heather Clem had such illicit affairs with many other men at her husband’s request while she was still married which were also recorded by him. Some of the additional sex tapes were shot in Bubba’s bedroom with an overhead surveillance-type camera with the different men aware that they were being filmed.

Heather Cole was the second wife of Bubba the Love Sponge Clem who was born Todd Alan Clem but officially changed his name in 1999 to the nickname given to him by a fellow DJ.

Heather and Clem got divorced оn September 15, 2011, and the union did not produce any children.

However, Heather has a daughter Julia Champ from her previous marriage. It is speculated that the sex tape scandal took a heavy toll on their marriage and ultimately led to their divorce. Heather describes Clem who is known for controversies as both funny and loving, but also manipulative, selfish, intimidating, and hurtful. Heather is currently working as a wellness instructor at AdvoCare and lives in Tampa, Florida.
