Just hours after John Cena and Nikki Bella announced their split, he took to Instagram to share a sad message about how he’s feeling in the aftermath of the breakup. See it here.
John Cena always shares memes, quotes and photos on Instagram with no explanation, but he didn’t need a caption for us to know what he was referring to with this post from Sunday night, April 15. The WWE star shared a meme from The Simpsons that read “Worst Day Ever” in capital letters, and it went up on his page shortly after he and his fiancee, Nikki Bella, confirmed to Us Weekly that they’d be ending their relationship after six years together. “While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for each other,” they said. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
The split announcement came as quite a shock, as Nikki and John just attended the WWE Hall of Fame Induction together on April 6, and were photographed kissing on the red carpet. She also supported him at the premiere of his movie, Blockers, earlier this month. However, there were some suspicions back in March, when Nikki didn’t show up to the Kids’ Choice Awards, which John was hosting for the second year in a row. The shocking split comes just over a year after John famously proposed to Nikki at WrestleMania on April 2, 2017.
After years of insisting that he would never get married again (John’s first marriage to Elizabeth Huberdeau ended in divorce in 2012), John got down on one knee at the WWE’s biggest event of the year and presented Nikki with a gigantic diamond ring. Their destination wedding was reportedly set for May 5, according to People.
Nikki has yet to comment on the breakup herself, although she did post the couple’s statement to Instagram with the caption, “We love you all.” Is love officially dead?!
