Heather married Todd Alan Clem popularly known as Bubba the Love Sponge in January 2007. The two got married at the First Baptist Church located in St. Petersburg, Florida, with Hulk Hogan as the best man. 

Heather and Clem appeared to live together happily as husband and wife until March 2011 when they separated. Their divorce papers confirming legal separation was released on September 15, 2011. Heather and Clem’s separation appeared to be amicable, and they had no child from their marriage.

The Truth About The Heather-Hogan Sex Tape

Heather Clem

We did not know much of Heather until 2012 when a sex tape involving her and Terry Bollea popularly known as Hulk Hogan was released. The footage was leaked by a New York-based media company known as Gawker. Hogan and Heather’s ex had been best friends way before she came along. Before the tape was released, it was reported earlier that year that Heather Clem had sex with her husband’s best man and that Bubba the Love Sponge filmed it.

The news grabbed a lot of attention, and some reports claimed Heather was not aware that Clem was filming her affair with Hogan. She also claimed that while they were still dating, Bubba had suggested she add Hogan to her list of sex partners, which she did. After the infamous video was released, it corroborated the claim that her husband was aware of the affair as he was heard asking the two to “do their thing”. Even more fascinating was what Bubba Clem was heard telling his then-wife towards the end of the video. In his words, “if we ever need to retire, here is our ticket.”

The incident, unfortunately, put a dent on years of friendship, and the aggrieved Hulk Hogan sued the couple for an invasion of privacy. The suit was later settled, followed by a public apology from Bubba Clem, but we imagine things will never remain the same between the old friends.

Testifying in court after Hogan sued the owner of Gawker, Nick Denton, for violating his right to privacy, Heather revealed she had met with Hogan four times in her bedroom, Bubba’s studio, and at Hogan’s residence. She also met him at a Tennessee hotel, and each of their meetings was at Bubba’s request. After weathering the scandal and her subsequent divorce, Heather Clem now goes by the last name “Cole”.

To the best of our knowledge, she now enjoys her single life as a mother to her daughter Julia. She spends her time working out, eating, or hanging out with friends. She also writes quotes when she is bored. Her daughter Julia is the fruit of one of her previous relationships before she started dating Bubba the Love Sponge in 2006.
