John Cena and Nikki Bella split after six years, end engagement

John Cena and Nikki Bella have announced their break-up following a six-year relationship, prompting the cancellation of their upcoming wedding.

The WWE superstars got engaged last year at WrestleMania 33, passionately kissing in the middle of the ring in front of an audience of millions.

"After much contemplation and six years of being together, Nikki Bella and John Cena announced today their decision to separate as a couple," a representative for the pair told media.

Cena and Bella also released their own joint statement to media, confirming the sad news and asking for privacy.

"While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another," they said.

"We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives. "

The pair's relationship was catalogued in reality TV shows Total Divas and Total Bellas.

Cena was spotted with Bella at WrestleMania 34 earlier this month, where he was defeated by The Undertaker.
