Nikki Bella and John Cena are officially done.
The two WWE Superstars started dating in 2012 and even had their relationship featured on Total Divas for its first couple of seasons. Cena actually proposed to Nikki at last year’s WrestleMania in Orlando, which many took as a sign that the two were destined to be. Unfortunately for Cena and Bella, the two couldn’t get past the differences in their lives and called it quits in a statement obtained by US Weekly
“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.
The news comes after Cena posted a photo on his Instagram of a broken glass heart Sunday Morning. The last time the couple was seen together was on April 8th, which was the night that Cena lost to The Undertaker in under three minutes. Interestingly enough Cena did an interview last month with U.S Weeky, where he hinted that the relationship was going south. Of course The Cneation leader didn’t come right out and say it, but it was very evident by his words that something was wrong.
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.”
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.”
