John Cena and Nikki Bella have announced they are parting ways after six years together. The two have been together since 2012.
John Cena, 40, admitted in the past that he didn't want to marry again. He proposed to Bella in April 2017.
According to sources quoted in PEOPLE magazine, Cena started getting cold feet as the wedding date drew near.
“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.
“He’s an incredibly dedicated, driven, ambitious guy. 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.”
“But in that case, he never should’ve proposed, let alone in front of millions of people. Now she’s heartbroken.”
Bella is “devastated,” the source says, adding, “This was supposed to be the happiest time of her life. He ruined it and blew everything up.”
