John was “selected from thousands of applicants for the opportunity to purchase the Ford GT.”, according to the lawsuit filed against him at the U.S. District Court in Michigan.
While purchasing the car, the Leader Of Cenation signed an agreement in which he agreed to hold on to it for at least 2 years.
However, Ford says that soon after receiving the car, the Former Champion flipped it to a third party for a big profit.
The company further claims that The WWE Star told them that he sold the car along with some other properties to ‘pay bills’.
They are now demanding for him to hand over all the profit made from the sale along with other damages. Here is a statement from their representative:
“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.”
So far John Cena has not made any public comments on the matter but we’ll keep you posted if anything comes up.
