WWE legend John Cena and his girlfriend Nikki Bella have ended their relationship after six years of being together. They have also called off their engagement.
TMZ was the first to report the news. The former couple made a statement for their fans.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple said. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
Cena, who was defeated by The Undertaker in less than three minutes at WrestleMania 34, proposed to Bella, 34-years-old, at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Fla. last April.
On Sunday, prior to the news breaking, Cena tweeted out a message from Walt Whitman. He said the tweet was for “those individuals feeling down.”
“Keep your faith always toward the sunshine — and shadows will fall behind you.”
Last month, according to Us Weekly, he hinted that there may have been trouble in their relationship.
“It takes being able to mesh two lives,” Cena said to the magazine. “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.”
