After six years as a couple, John Cena and Nikki Bella have ended their engagement weeks before their destination wedding. Their wedding was scheduled for May 5 in Mexico.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple said in a statement posted by Bella. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
Cena, 40, proposed to Bella, 34, publically a year ago on stage at Wrestlemania 33. The two have been dating since 2012 after Cena divorced his ex-wife, Elizabeth Huberdeau, of three years.
Last month, Cena admitted to "Us Weekly" that relationships take a lot of work.
“Relationships are hard. Don’t ever think that love is easy. Love is beautiful, but we’ve had to come to the realization after being together for five years that love is not easy,” Cena said. “We work every day on us. We have our problems just like everybody else. Some of our problems are very public, some of them aren’t. But we work every day on us. Anytime I get upset, I always just realize that I can’t live without her and I love her and that’s why I cave in on a lot of stuff.”
Cena continued: “It takes being able to mesh two lives. 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. I think, for now at least, that is certainly what’s making this work.”
