Things Get Awkward When Carmella Is Asked If John Cena and Nikki Bella Staged Their Break-up (Video)

John Cena and Nikki Bella’s decision to call off their wedding in April has led some fans to believe the split was staged for Total Bellas.

And on Tuesday, fellow WWE Superstar Carmella weighed in on rumors that it’s a publicity stunt during an interview on an Australian breakfast radio show

Carmella awkwardly denied knowledge of the situation during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

John and Nikki got engaged at WrestleMania 33 in April last year. The couple were set to marry on May 5, 2018, but announced their separation just days before their scheduled wedding date.

Host Kyle Sandilands surprised Carmella by sharing his own theory about the unexpected split on Tuesday.

“I’ve got to say, the John Cena and Nikki thing, something suss is going on there. I didn’t believe the breakup, I thought it was bullshit,” he said.

“Oh, sure. I honestly have no idea,” Carmella replied, raising her hands defensively. “But if it’s on the internet it’s got to be true, right?”

Co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson added, “Kyle thinks they staged it for the reality show, as a publicity stunt.”

“You never know. Honestly, I have no idea,” Carmella said, shutting down the topic.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the couple “are not officially back together” due to John’s hectic schedule with various film and TV projects.

“One of the reasons that they can’t seem to work things out is because he’s getting ready to leave the country for four months,” a source claimed.

Cena will shortly begin filming the movie The Janson Directive, which is being produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“They’re not the kind of couple where it’s “absence makes the heart grow fonder,” they’re more “out of sight, out of mind,” added the insider.

“So this distance isn’t going to be good for them. They work best when they’re working together and can be together all the time.”
