John Cena and Nikki Bella have broken up.

Cena had been dating the former Diva’s Champion since November 2012 and they had been together for almost 6 years. The two also got engaged last year when the Cenation Leader proposed to the Total Bellas star at WrestleMania 33.

However, US Weekly broke the news earlier today revealing that the duo has mutually agreed to end their relationship. The story also features the following combined statement from both the stars, saying that they’ll continue to have love and respect for one another:

“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another, We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

After the news went viral, the now former couple took on their social media accounts and reflected on the situation with Nikki saying that she loves her fans and John sharing a quote from Walt Whiteman:
