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.

What happened to NEVER GIVE UP? What every happened to RISE ABOVE THE HATE?
Now it will be easier to make Cena turn heal. It is a fact that he has given up. It is a fact that he could rise above the hate. If it were all true he would not be getting divorced.

"Rock saw Cena, makin' out with Eve. Rubbin' on her legs, tuggin' on that weave." Rocky must have really known and tried to tell us during his concert on Raw. Looks like he had the last laugh.

aww peeps read between the lines, he obviously didn't have to marry her. but he did. "irretrievably broken!!! SHE CHEATED or got her tubes tied!, GUARANTEED!. thats why she's lawyering up. im more than sure he took care of her and would still give her something but she wants to be greedy. I love my husband with all of my heart. and marriage is about puuting up with the bad and enjoying the good. now lets see what she gonna do. deliver pizza!!!(no offense to anyone) but I think you got the point!! LINDA WHO, dont see much anymore unless she with a bottle of booze or her kids friends. FOR REAL GUYS WHAT A JOKE? Last time I checked Hulk Hogan is still doing very well for himself and his family. and everything THE HULKSTER said about her was obviously the truth. time tells the tales of it all. this was fun , let me know what you guys think

Nobody made her sign that prenup. She should get what it says she gets according to the rules of the do***ent. I wish people would stop getting married and then getting divorced soon after. There is no staying power in these relationships.

on John Cena divorce,
its very sad to hear. however, to all the Cena detracters,and to Miss Huberdeau--------the fact that john chose to make you his mrs. after all the years you 2 were together knowing this man could have found a woman any where in the world,
and his loyalty creedo, why would you blow your ride honey? I am a WWE fan and a Cena fan, who is old enough to be his mom (by the way). Since she(Liz) stood by him all these years knowing FULL WELL what she was getting into,shows that
her choosing to show her love for this man by hiring a blood-sucking attorney,will most certainly get John to change his mind(NOT).What it does show is that by getting that ring on her finger,she saw big ticket gold in her eyes!!! Honey, if you love John and want him to stay...........rethink your money grubbing strategy. 3 years is a short time of marriage after so many years of the 2 of you getting to know each other.....WHAT THE HELL DID YOU TURN INTO??? it doesnt take a rocket scientist to see that because John filed it was Liz who did the DECEIVING.....get that through your head people.......SHE clearly led him down the garden path....if MONEY wasnt her hearts desire,she could have declined the proposal,not our Lizzy....she signed a prenup on her way to becoming the ugly stepsister.Liz,John isnt happy,let him go without taking his shorts-wish him well and show some dignity!!! I am sure he is a generous man this i have seen, he wont leave YOU without shorts........seriously.
