Multiple-time WWE and World Heavyweight Champion John Cena is divorcing his wife of three years – and high-school sweetheart – Kim, reportedly blindsiding her by filing the paperwork. Kim, who will be represented by Linda Bollea (Hogan)’s “70%” attorney, has gone on record saying their marriage had some issues but that she did not know it was headed down that road. She had signed a pre-nup; she turned down a pre-divorce financial settlement proposed by Cena.
