Nikki Bella is going through a tough phase in her life, moving out of John Cena’s house. During the premiere of the fourth season of ‘Total Bellas’, Nikki traveled to Tampa, Florida, to move out of the home she shared with Cena after calling off their engagement last year for good. In the confessional, the WWE star discussed the situation that emerged after moving out.
“My breakup’s been a very difficult thing. I don’t even know if I can get through it,” she said. “Moving all my stuff out is just, it makes it closure and I think that’s the hardest part. When you move out and you shut that door and you give someone your keys, that just shut the door to your heart, to that love and to the memories. That no new memories will be made, which is so hard to think about.”
Despite telling her mom, Kathy Colace, “it’s going to be hard going to the house right now,” she made the journey because she didn’t “want to sit on the memories.” Clearing out the house, a place Nikki admitted she’ll “definitely miss,” took about an hour and marked “the toughest” post-breakup moment for her. Naturally, leaving the home she shared with her ex-boyfriend and then fiancé for so many years was not easy for her.
Nikki, while going through her breakup, was staying in San Diego right near her sister, Brie Bella. Now, post-breakup, she’s planning to move to Los Angeles and have a fresh start. Brie doesn’t approve of the decision but Nikki is quite adamant about it. “I’m more sad in San Diego. I’m not sad in L.A.,” she explained. “I’m not around people who are talking about marriage and kids 24/7 or asking how are you feeling. I’m just f***ing sick of it.”
Eventually, Brie came to terms with her sister’s decision, and they made up. However, Nikki is still unable to forget her past with Cena, and when she showed up for pre-Summer Slam events in New York, she was plagued with questions about him. “I understand being in a relationship that was very public, I’m always going to have questions about it,” she said.
Nikki is reportedly dating her former ‘Dancing With the Stars’ partner, Artem Chigvintsev. The duo was paired together on DWTS’ 25th season in 2017 and were the sixth couple to be eliminated from the competition. They were spotted at the farmer’s market in Los Angeles in California.
