WWE's John Cena and Nikki Bella split up

John Cena and Nikki Bella

After six years together, WWE mainstay and budding Hollywood star John Cena and fiancee Nikki Bella have parted ways, announced exclusively to US Weekly on Sunday.

In a joint statement to the magazine, they said, "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.”

The two made headlines at 2017's WrestleMania 33 when, following a mixed tag match, Cena proposed to Bella (real name Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace) in the ring. The two have also been a staple of the E! reality TV show Total Bellas with sister, Brie, wife of Daniel Bryan.

The 34-year-old Bella is no longer a full-time member of the WWE roster while the 40-year-old Cena is essentially part-time as he balances a growing commitment to several Hollywood projects like his movie Blockers that was released last week.
