16-time World Champion, John Cena broke-up with his ex-fiancé and longest reigning individual WWE Divas Champion, Nikki Bella, ending their 6 years long relationship in the middle of April this year and according to multiple reports, the former pair reunited in June and started making headlines as usual.
However, even after reconciling with Cena, Nikki appears to be still having doubts about their relationship.
In a sneak peek at Sunday’s episode of Total Bellas, Bella admits that she and Cena have drifted apart during the wedding planning process.
While drinking tea with her friends during her Paris bachelorette party, Nikki says Cena’s only request for their wedding is that she “shows up.”
“Every little part of this wedding, it’s like, it’s going back,” she says.
With The Champ traveling for his upcoming films and remaining hands-off in the wedding planning, Bella feels like she’s “growing apart” from her fiancé.
“I feel like I’m continuing to grow more apart from John, and I should be growing closer to him,” Bella says in a confessional although she isn’t quite ready to confess to her family and friends regarding how she is feeling.
“I don’t want to ruin anyone’s weekend and they’re all here for me, so even though I’m feeling all these emotions, I just think I want to keep this to myself for a bit longer,” Nikki says. “As long as I can, at least.”
Even after PEOPLE and other media sources confirmed that the pro-wrestling couple is back together, Nikki continued to claim that she and Cena are “just friends”.
“I’ll admit my relationship, it has been in a super emotional rollercoaster ride, and I think it’s hard for people to understand because we film and things get show months after,” she said. “I feel like I have to say what’s the update on John and I, but right now, we are just friends.”
