Ford has filed a lawsuit against the WWE superstar John Cena in the District Court in Michigan after he sold his custom-made model Ford GT sports car, violating the contract.
As per the lawsuit, Cena had signed a contract with the company to maintain the ownership of the car for two years, but instead, he flipped the car for significant profit soon after receiving the car.

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, amba s sador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale.
The lawsuit also claims Cena responded after the company informed him of violating the contract, where he (Cena) said,
I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with Ford to make it right. My sincerest apologies.
John Cena is not the only celebrity to have this car this year. Beside him, Justin Verlander and Joey Logano also own the whip.
