Nikki Bella and John Cena have broken up and this time for good.
Bella announced Monday that she and Cena have split again after reconciling about two months ago. The WWE Superstars ended their engagement in April just weeks before their wedding, but confirmed in June they were working on their relationship. They were also spotted together in mid-May.
“After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding. After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways,” Bella said in a statement to PEOPLE.
“I had a beautiful and loving 6-year relationship with a wonderful man,” she said. “I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me.”
A source confirms to PEOPLE that Bella has been house-hunting recently.
Bella may have hinted at their impending breakup when she said in a YouTube video posted on The Bella Twins’ YouTube channel on July 1 that she and Cena were “just friends.”
“I’ll admit, my relationship, it has been a super emotional roller coaster ride,” she said. “And I think it’s hard for people to understand because we film and things get shown months after. I feel like I have to say what’s the update on John and I, but right now, we are just friends.”
She called Cena “one of the most amazing people I have ever met,” and added that they’ve been “working on each other and trying to work on us.”
The news comes just one day after Bella was seen calling off their engagement for a second time during the season finale of Total Bellas.
While mulling over her decision to cancel their nuptials for the second time — just weeks before their wedding date — the 34-year-old WWE Superstar spoke about how she wished things “could be different.”
“It just sucks,” she said during the episode. “I wish it could be different and I think that’s why I’ve had almost six years of working on us and fighting and just taking in a lot. I just feel like I’ve hit the point that I’m just so exhausted and done.”
Earlier this season, the couple broke up briefly, reconciling only after Cena agreed to reverse his vasectomy and give her a child. But for Bella, it wasn’t enough.
“It’s just hard when you love someone so much and care for them so much, but you just can’t do it anymore,” she tearfully added. “It’s not his fault, it’s not my fault. We’ve had this amazing love story and its just come to an end.”
