WWE superstar and actor John Cena has parted ways with former Divas champion Nikki Bella less than three weeks before their wedding was due to take place. The couple had been in a relationship for six years and had recently got engaged.

In a statement published by Nikki and her twin sister Brie's official Twitter account, the couple told fans they were going their separate ways, but a reason for their split was not given.

John Cena and Nikki Bella are no longer getting ready to say "I do". Nikki Bella tweeted on Monday that the professional wrestlers have ended their relationship and asked for privacy.

Here is the tweet posted by Nikki and her twin sister Brie's official Twitter account:
