Nikki Bella Says She Hasn’t Spoken To Ex John Cena Since Their Breakup
We’ve got some bad news for fans who were still holding out hope that Nikki Bella and John Cena might one day get back together. Over the weekend, the E! reality star revealed that while she is not currently dating anyone right now, she also hasn’t spoken to her ex-fiancé for some time. In fact, it seems like the couple’s relationship might be over for good this time.
In July, ahead of the Total Bellas season finale, Nikki revealed that she and John were “just friends” and that they spoke to each other every day. Fast-forward to today and clearly, things have changed. Nikki caught up with reporters at the iHeart Radio Music Festival, where she was asked to update fans on the status of her and the actor’s relationship and whether they still keep in touch.
“We don’t,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s doing him and I’m doing me. I slowly feel like I’m doing that. I think it’s happiness, and just fully being happy and that’s what I want.”
If you’ve been following the pair’s on-again-off-again relationship, then you know that the two have been playing with our heartstrings every since they FIRST broke up in April. To recap: Nikki and John announced their split three weeks before their planned wedding in Mexico. At the time, reports suggested it had to do with John getting cold feet, while others blamed it on his ever-changing opinion about having kids. But when John professed his love for Nikki during an interview, we all thought they were going to reconcile. We were wrong because they “officially” called it quits soon after that.
Now, Nikki’s recent “we don’t talk” commentary puts an end to any speculation about them getting back together – at least until they sort through their problems. Nikki was also asked to comment on the recent rumors that she was back to dating again — something she was quick to dismiss, too.
“I made a joke about dating Netflix and black licorice, and I said it kind of gets boring, and then it turned into this thing and I got quoted saying dating life is boring, and I was like, ‘No, that was about Netflix and black licorice,'” she explained, confirming that, no, she isn’t dating. “I have to admit, I mean, I am single, but I’m not ready for mingling yet, you know? I don’t know.”
Nikki added that the new season of Total Bellas will bring “a lot of ups,” but that it will definitely be a change from what we saw last season which showed the demise of her and John’s engagement. She went on to say that fans will see her work on finding herself instead.
“I just feel like I’m at that age where I’m discovering who I really am and what I want out of life and just, like, independence,” she said. “I’m not going to lie, it is scary and you do have these moments of like, ‘What am I doing?’ – and fear. I just kind of am liking the challenge.”
Take all the time you need, Nikki! If someway, somehow she and John find their way back to one another down the road then they’ll know this time apart was worth it.
