If you’re a fan of E!’s “Total Divas” and the spinoff “Total Bellas,” you’re probably a huge fan of Nikki Bella, a WWE star. On the show, fans got an inside look at Bella’s relationship with professional wrestler, John Cena. After six years together and an engagement, the two have officially called it quits.
The surprising news came in the form of an Instagram post on Bella’s Instagram page which 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.”
John Cena posted a completely different message on his Instagram page…
It’s unclear why the couple decided to split up, but fans on Twitter are definitely feeling the pain.
If John Cena and Nikki Bella can’t make it…is there hope for the world?

How are we supposed to live in a world where John Cena and Nikki Bella aren’t together?

The Undertaker unretired. John Cena and Nikki Bella have broken up. Was WrestleMania 33 a lie? Have Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho actually been friends this entire time!?

If the celebrity universe thought I could handle more than Channing & Jenna splitting, Tristan cheating on Khloe, & now John Cena & Nikki Bella splitting they are W R O N G

I am legitimately shocked by the John Cena/Nikki Bella breakup. Just saw them a month ago and they looked SO happy together.

Can't believe John Cena and Nikki Bella are breakingnup. In my day, a mid-ring proposal during Wrestlemania meant forever.

If John Cena and Nikki Bella can't make it then love is cancelled. All existing marriages should be annulled.

April 15th is such a tragic day in history. Lincoln was assassinated, Titanic sunk, and John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up. Damn.
