WWE Star John Cena

Files for Divorce

5/10/2012 12:06 PM PDT UPDATED: 5/10/2012 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0510_john_cena_Liz_HuberdeauWWE star John Cena has filed for divorce.

Cena filed the docs in Florida, claiming his marriage to Liz Huberdeau is "irretrievably broken." John and Liz were high school sweethearts but only married three years ago.  They have no children.

Now here's the kicker -- Liz has already hired high-powered Miami attorney Raymond Rafool, the same attorney who repped Linda Hogan during her divorce ... and took Hulk to the cleaners.

But it won't be easy -- according to the docs, Liz signed a crippling pre-nup in 2009.

Liz' lawyer has already released a statement, claiming, "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."

The attorney adds, "Sadly, divorce is not the way Liz thought her perfect love story would end."

12:12 PM -- Liz' attorney tells us, 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.

FYI -- It's not uncommon in celeb divorces to bring up pre-divorce settlement agreements because they help simplify otherwise messy splits.

I believe Cena will choose David Otunga as his legal representative, ladies and gentlemen.

O_o    

what happened, cena? foresight got knocked out of ya? why on earth, at this juncture in your life, would you think about starting over w a stranger? do you honestly think that your problems will magically disappear just because you move on to a new piece of a$$? news for ya - the problems will magically get worse because now you're dealing with someone who doesn't know you nearly as well...and won't tolerate half of the b.s. that this poor woman has had to endure. what a half wit. another one who should not be allowed to sign a marriage contract.
