After staying together for six years, WWE stars John Cena and Nikki Bella have parted ways.
The power couple, who got engaged last year in April in the middle of the wrestling ring and in front of thousands of fans at the Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando, Florida, announced about their split in a social media statement via a post on Instagram on Sunday.
The statement posted by Bella on her Instagram handle read, “After much contemplation and 6 years of being together Nikki Bella and John Cena announced today their decision to separate as a couple. While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
Cena addressed their split later in the day by sharing a meme from “The Simpsons” which read “WORST DAY EVER!”
Cena had opened up about the struggles the couple was facing to ET at the ‘Kids’ Choice Awards’ which was held in March, where he said that the two were in a different place after a rough patch.
Notably, both Cena as well as Nikki Bella have spent an increasing time away from the ring. Bella had made a brief cameo in January at the WWE’s Royal Rumble and also in one of the untelevised match teaming with Cena in March but has not been a part of the storyline since the time she and Cena got engaged last year. Moreover, due to a neck injury, she has spent long gaps away from the ring in the recent years.
On the other hand, Cena’s movie career has been amazing in the recent time. He has received good reviews for his performance in “Trainwrecked” in the year 2015, besides he also starred in “Daddy’s Home” in the 2015 and “Daddy’s Home 2” in the year 2017.
