PEOPLE.COM is reporting that Nikki Bella is heartbroken and devastated by her split from John Cena which happened just weeks before they were supposed to get married. A wedding date was never officially announced to the public.
A source close to the duo told PEOPLE that Cena was getting “cold feet” as the wedding date got closer. “She never gave him an ultimatum. He talked a really good game about having changed, about having his priorities straight, about knowing what’s important, and that it was her. But as the day got closer, it was like he just went back to who he’s always been — which is someone who puts himself first, always,” the source said.
Cena always said that he never wanted to get married again or even have kids before he made a u-turn and eventually proposed to Nikki. “And for the longest time he said he didn’t think he had room in his life for a spouse or kids. It seems like in the end that was still the truth,” the same source added. “This was supposed to be the happiest time of her life. He ruined it and blew everything up.”
On Twitter, Cena wrote that hardship, loss, and humility are extremely difficult waters to navigate. “But perseverance thru them builds a strength to withstand anything life throws your way,” he continued.
