    Hulk Hogan apparently isn't the only one feeling wronged.

    The 59-year-old wrestling legend may have filed a civil lawsuit on Monday against radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge and his ex-wife, Heather Clem (now Heather Cole), in connection with the release of a sex tape starring Hulk and the former Mrs. Love Sponge.

    But now, a lawyer for Bubba (real name: Todd Clem) tells E! News exclusively that his client is "a victim" in this scandal.

    Bubba the Love Sponge blasts Hulk Hogan as "ultimate, lying showman"

    "I don't understand how you can sue a victim and I don't understand how you can sue your best friend," the attorney says. "I'm hopeful we never get served and can work together to find out [what happened with the tape]. I am convinced Bubba had nothing to do with it. And I don't believe Heather had anything to do with it. So let's find that party who has caused harm to everyone. That is our objective, our hope."

    The lawyer noted that Bubba has not been served with the lawsuit.

    "The reality is that these guys shouldn't be fighting each other. They should be fighting the person who stole it, released it and those who broadcast it," he added. "I don't know what his objective is in suing Bubba. We will respond if and when we are served."

    Bubba's attorney says the incident is "very unfortunate," pointing out that Bubba and Hulk have been good friends for a long time. In fact, Hulk not only served as best man at Bubba's wedding, but is godfather to his son.

    Hulk filed an additional $100 million civil lawsuit against Gawker Media, which posted excerpts of the tape on its website.

    2010 was a big year for sex tape scandals
