American multinational automaker company Ford has sued professional-wrestler-turned-actor and rapper John Cena over a breach of contract.
According to the lawsuit filed in the US District Court in Michigan, Cena was “selected from thousands of applicants for the opportunity to purchase the Ford GT,” reports TMZ.
The WWE superstar had signed a deal where he agreed to hold onto the car for at least two years before he can unload his new $500,000 2017 Ford GT.
However, immediately after receiving the car, the “American Grit” star sold it to another party for a big profit.
“Mr Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorised resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale,” the statement read.
The lawsuit further stated that Cena sold the car along with his other properties to pay bills and Ford has demanded the overall profit from the sale along with an extra amount for the damage the company has faced following his action.
The lawsuit comes at a time when Cena is preparing to tie the knot with another professional wrestler, actor, and model Nikki Bella.
