WHY Ford Is Suing Superstar John Cena
By Catherine Armecin
JOHN Cena sold his new Ford GT car, but the company was not happy with his move.
Ford is taking legal actions by suing the “American Grit” star for violating their contract by selling his new $500k 2017 Ford GT. According to the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Michigan, Cena was “selected from thousands of applicants for the opportunity to purchase the Ford GT,” TMZ reported.
The “Total Bellas” star signed a deal where he agreed to hold onto the car for at least two years before he can unload it. The company claims that as soon as the professional wrestler received the vehicle, he immediately sold it for a big profit.
“Mr. Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized 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 also stated that Cena sold the car along with his other properties to pay bills. However, he might not enjoy the money he made from it as Ford is demanding that he hand them the overall profit from the sale. They also ask that the celebrity pay them for damages.
Cena is engaged to Nikki Bella and the couple is already prepping for their upcoming wedding. In November, Cena revealed that they have “already covered a lot of ground.”
In one episode of “Total Bellas,” Bella revealed that she already set a date and picked a wedding dress. “I’m kind of bad [at planning], but I have a date and I found a dress. Everything in between I don’t have, but I’m working on the save the dates right now,” she said.
Bella added that she is hoping that their series will be renewed for another season, so her big day will be aired. “We’re hoping for Season 3 of Total Bellas,” the bride-to-be said.
Cena popped the big question to Bella in front of thousands of fans at WrestleMania after they defeated their epic foes, The Miz and Maryse in April. “I have been waiting so long to ask you this. Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, will you marry me?” Cena asked Bella. She was speechless for a few seconds before she nodded and gave Cena a kiss.
