Brie Bella Was Originally Against Nikki Dating Artem Because She Wanted Her Back With John Cena
Previously, Brie Bella was not actually a big fan of Nikki Bella dating Artem Chigvintsev because she and John Cena had a solid friendship. During an interview with Us Weekly at the WWE's annual kickoff event for WrestleMania , Nikki said, "my sister was like, 'no,' for Artem in the beginning because she was so in love with John."
However, now she thinks Artem was a great choice. The 35-year-old said, "Yeah, I mean, now I'm more like, 'Whatever my sister wants," the professional wrestler said to Us Weekly. For the longest while, Brie was on John's team because she knew him well.
With that said, Brie claims she would be stoked if John and Nikki got back together someday. The reality star said she'd "love it." As it was previously reported, the outlet claimed Nikki had begun dating her Dancing With The Stars partner back in January.
Approximately two months later, they made it Instagram official with a photo in which she was kissing Artem's cheek. She captioned it with a nice message. It was revealed that Cena and Nikki had called off their engagement back in April 2018 following five years of serious dating.
A source who spoke with Us Weekly claimed she and John were looking for privacy, and while they still loved each other, they had to do what was right for both of them individually. Approximately two months later, they briefly got back together but then split up again in July 2018.
Since then, the Bumblebee alum has been hanging around the engineer, Shay Shariatzadeh. They held hands and had dinner together in Canada back in March. Regarding as to why he and Bella split up, it was rumored John didn't want kids whereas Nikki did.
It became a significant point of contention for both of them, moreover, John also claimed at one point that he had persuaded Nikki to sign contracts in which he was protecting his wealth and financial assets. On social media, John was criticized for being "non-romantic."
Nonetheless, if John didn't want children and Nikki did, maybe they were better off going their separate ways.
