Nikki Bella is finally opening up about her recent breakup. Amid her blossoming romance with Bachelorette contestant Peter Kraus, the WWE star admitted that dumping fiancé John Cena was one of the hardest things she has ever had to do.
The breakup happened while Nikki was filming the new season of Total Bellas. Cena proposed to Nikki after winning a match at WrestleMania 33. The couple appeared to be heading towards marital bliss when they both got cold feet and backed out of the tying the knot.
After trying to work things out, Nikki reportedly ended the relationship for good due to issues about their careers and starting a family.
Although Nikki was the one who ended things, she still had a difficult time moving on.
Nikki admitted that she almost told the camera crew to leave the room when she was dealing with the split. She also revealed that her friends and family texted her constantly asking if she was okay. While it was quite the ordeal, Nikki decided to include all of it on the new season of Total Bellas because she knows people can related to her struggles.
“It’s extremely difficult,” Bella shared. “…but we know how many people are going to sit on that couch and relate to us because some of them are going through the same stuff.”
A new trailer for the upcoming season of Total Bellas revealed that Nikki may have moved on faster than anyone expected.
The clip shows Nikki’s twin sister, Brie Bella, setting her up with Peter Kraus, a former contestant on The Bachelorette. Nikki was a little nervous about jumping back into the dating world, but her date with Kraus seemed to go well. The trailer showed Kraus leaning in for a smooch at the end of their date.
