Hogan acknowledged on various TV talk shows recently that he had sex with Heather Clem while he was married to Linda Hogan. The Hogans have also divorced.
Hogan, his ex-wife and the couple's son and daughter have appeared on the reality show "Hogan Knows Best."
Stephen Diaco, a lawyer for Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, said Hogan was the best man at the Clemses' wedding and he is also a godfather to their child.
"My hope is that these two can preserve their friendship," said Diaco. "I can't comment on the suit. This has caused harm to Bubba and he didn't release it, he didn't condone the release of it. He wants to find out who did that and he wants that person to be held accountable."
It is illegal in Florida to record someone without their permission, but Hogan waited too long to file criminal charges.
