WWE star John Cena has decided to file for divorce from his high school sweetheart of 3 years, wife Liz Huberdeau.
It is said that Cena isn’t going down without a fight in lieu of his wife hiring Miami power attorney Raymond Rafool who was also the man in the driver seat during Linda Bollea’s divorce from Hulk Hogan.
It’s expected that the divorce will get nasty, and probably over money considering just how much Cena is worth, which is a reportedly $18 million. It is known that Cena has a prenuptial agreement as well. A source close to the couple says that the divorce will “dwarf the Hogan divorce in nastiness.” According to the source, Cena claimed that their marriage is “irretrievably broken” and the wrestling champion is said to be considering taking some serious time off.
In a statement to The Miami Herald, Rafool spoke on behalf of Ceena’s wife Liz saying, “Although it is indeed unfortunate that John Cena decided to divorce his high school sweetheart Liz Cena; particularly, after they have come so far in their lives and in his career together, Liz will and really has no choice but to pursue all of her rights and entitlements.”
Rafool told TMZ that “Cena blindsided her with the divorce filing. They had been having issues– and Cena even approached her recently with a pre-divorce financial settlement agreement — but Liz refused to sign it, convinced the relationship would still work out.”
In 2009 while Cena was promoting his film 12 Rounds he announced the engagement to his then girlfriend Elizabeth Huberdeau, and the couple were later married on July 11, 2009.
