The WWE Superstar John Cena has settled his dispute with Ford over the sale of an unsaleable $450,000 supercar last year. 

John got into a violation of contract after he sold his Ford GT supercar just a month after he purchased it. According to the company policy, the owner cannot sell the cars for at least 24 months

However, John sold the car in October 2017, just a month after he bought it violating the company policy. For that, Ford sued Cena in November seeking damages of $75,000

Ford also wanted to buy back the car for the original price. But, with that, they also wanted all profits Cena made during the sale of the car.

Initially, Cena claimed that he was unaware of the fact that the car couldn't be sold that early. 

On Tuesday, June 19, the actor has settled the case outside of the courtroom by agreeing to pay Ford an undisclosed amount which will later go to the charity. 

Cena, for his mistakes, apologized to Ford and stated in an interview that he will encourage other owners to respect the contract. 

Furthermore, he added,

I am pleased we could resolve this matter outside of court and that a worthy charity will benefit from one of the most iconic cars in the world.

Cena has been currently trying to get back with his beau Nikki Bella while for Ford, the legal battle is still ongoing with the dealer that sold Cena's car.
