The Ford Motor Company recently filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court against WWE superstar John Cena regarding Cena’s violation of a contract with Ford due to the sale of a $500,000 custom Ford GT car, according to a report from WXYZ in Detroit, who note that Cena had signed to retain the car for at least two years, as an ambassador of the brand, but sold it, in order to take care of other expenses.

Ford released the following statement on the matter stating, “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.”

Meanwhile, Cena who is overseas on promotional duties for the upcoming Ferdinand movie, learned of the violation and issued the following statement, “I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with Ford to make it right. My sincerest apologies.”
