Nikki Bella and John Cena announce they are separating as a couple after six years

Nikki Bella and John Cena

Nikki Bella announced on her official Instagram page on Sunday evening that she was officially splitting up with John Cena following a very public six year relationship.

This comes just a year after Cena proposed to Nikki inside the ring at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando in front of an estimated attendance of over 75,000 wrestling fans.

The relationship between the two was made even more public with the “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas” reality shows that have aired on the E! Network the last few years.

Cena has yet to comment online about the split, while Nikki issued this statement:

“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.”
