PEOPLE is featuring an exclusive interview with Nikki Bella where she confirms her relationship with John Cena is now officially over.
“After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding. After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways. I had a beautiful and loving 6-year relationship with a wonderful man. I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me.”
Cena made a very public proposal to Nikki at WrestleMania 33 last year in Orlando.
The couple reportedly tried to work on the relationship the last few months, but ultimately made a decision recently to officially call things off going forward.
During the season finale of “Total Bellas”, Nikki made it clear she was done.
“It just sucks. I wish it could be different and I think that’s why I’ve had almost six years of working on us and fighting and just taking in a lot. I just feel like I’ve hit the point that I’m just so exhausted and done.”
