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."

update_bar
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.

Women who are foolish enough to sign pre-nups and believe in fairy tale weddings and Prince Charming deserve to end up with nothing for their stupidity. When he says I will love you forever find out how long the moron's attention span is...xx

I have always liked John Sena and I hate to hear this about his marriage. It seems like all the stars lately are getting a divorce "even if they been married for years". I hope that this has nothing to do with either one having affair but it seems like it always end up to be that reason. I sure hope not.

Im finding it hard to believe she was blindsided! There is always plenty of signs this is coming even w/o a pre-divorce financial settlement. Obviously this is sad and I hope wwe doesnt turn it into a storyline for both their sakes. Details should be private.

Just another "Punk" who made it big, just ask the Rock, he did the same thing to his wife. I hope the women "Bleed" them BOTH for ALL their worth.

Très désolée pour Liz et John. J'espère que le scénario de la wwe avec Eve, il faut bien dire qu'il l'embrassait.......avec conviction, et il y avait la télévision.

Some one ask about a womans rights. She has the rights to an education and job just like him. How many bumps did she take in the ring over the years? No children she has a good degree and now with less travel time time to work. When you are married to a high profile person 365 day a year and he or she might be home 330 the odds don't add up in marriage favor. I sure he and she are both hurting thought some of you would never admitt to a weakness like that. I hope things at least stay on the up and up with no Hogan slander thrown in the mix.
