After six years together, John Cena and Nikki Bella have called it quits, the couple revealed exclusively to our news source few days recently.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple tells Us in a statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
Cena, 40, proposed to Bella, 34, one year ago at Wrestlemania 33. The two have been dating since 2012. The pair were last were spotted in public together at Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday, April 8.
On Saturday, April 14, the Blockers star posted an Instagram photo of a quote from Walt Whitman that read, “We were together. I forget the rest.”
Last month, Cena spoke with Us Weekly about their relationship, admitting that it takes a lot of work.
“Relationships are hard. Don’t ever think that love is easy. Love is beautiful, but we’ve had to come to the realization after being together for five years that love is not easy,” Cena said. “We work every day on us. We have our problems just like everybody else. Some of our problems are very public, some of them aren’t. But we work every day on us. Anytime I get upset, I always just realize that I can’t live without her and I love her and that’s why I cave in on a lot of stuff.”
Hardship, loss, and humility are extremely difficult waters to navigate, but perseverance thru them builds a strength to withstand anything life throws your way.

He continued: “It takes being able to mesh two lives. I would never ever want Nicole to be in a position where she says, ‘I’m holding you back from doing this because I feel it’s wrong for us.’ And I would never say that to her. That’s why she’s super busy and sometimes we don’t see each other for months at a time, but when we do see each other, it’s our time together. I think, for now at least, that is certainly what’s making this work.”
Here’s some reasons why John Cena and Nikki Bella split:
“She never gave him an ultimatum. He talked a really good game about having changed, about having his priorities straight, about knowing what’s important, and that it was her. But as the day got closer, it was like he just went back to who he’s always been — which is someone who puts himself first, always,” the insider says. “He’s an incredibly dedicated, driven, ambitious guy. And for the longest time he said he didn’t think he had room in his life for a spouse or kids. It seems like in the end that was still the truth.”

The source continues, “But in that case, he never should’ve proposed, let alone in front of millions of people. Now she’s heartbroken.”
Nikki Bella is “devastated,” the source says, adding, “This was supposed to be the happiest time of her life. He ruined it and blew everything up.”
While that is still ringing and Cena has made several shocking notes lately as regards their wedding vis-à-vis Nikki having kids, worthy to note is that there are parts of Nikki that is just unfolding into the eye of the general public which could be the main reason why Cena has been reluctant on pulling the trigger of marriage with her all this while.
The longest reigning WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella has been ups and downs relationships issues just as most Superstars and she recently noted that she was formally married; yes she is a divorcee.
Nikki Bella has been married once before, yes, Nikki Bella is a divorcee at least according to Total Divas, the E! reality show starring WWE personalities. As per the report on that particular episode of the show, Nikki Bella revealed to her family that she married her high school sweetheart in Las Vegas at the age of 20 but kept the wedding a secret from everyone. She also kept their divorce a secret; the two were divorced three years after the wedding took place.
Of course, the marriage wasn’t quite as romantic as it sounds; Nikki related that the marriage was a disaster, so they eventually had it annulled.
“Even when I started to walk down the aisle, I knew, ‘This was a huge mistake, how can I get out of this,’ but I couldn’t,” Nikki Bella said on Total Divas. “I tried to forget about it…”Nikki later said
