They broke up, they're together, they're not together. When it comes to the relationship of John Cena and Nikki Bella, it's getting hard to keep up.
Last month John Cena and Nikki Bella announced to the world that they were breaking up, ending their engagement and that their impending nuptials were off. That announcement came just weeks before the wedding was going to happen, so a pretty big decision to make. When it comes to any and all famous breakups though, the rumor mill works overtime in the weeks that follow.
Neither Cena nor Bella has categorically explained why they decided to call things off, however, there is a front-running potential reason when it comes to fan speculation. Cena did not hide the fact that he never wants to get married or have children but clearly, on the first of those, Bella won him round. Apparently when it comes to kids though, the sixteen time World Champion wouldn't budge.
The latest twist in the couple's tale was revealed by People this week. An unnamed source close to the couple has revealed to them that Cena and Bella are back together. "They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding, and they both realized they could fix what was broken," the source told People. They also went into detail as to why the breakup happened and why they are allegedly back together.
"It was a wedding that was entered into under false pretenses. She was pretending she was okay with not having a kid, he was pretending he absolutely couldn’t and wouldn’t budge on that point," they explained. That certainly compounds the belief that most fans had all along, and why Cena poured his heart out on The Today Show, admitting that he still loves Bella and wants to have children with her.
There are naturally fans who are skeptical about this whole saga, especially since it involves pro wrestlers, and think that it all may simply be a part of an angle. The reality show Total Bellas premiered this week and some believe the breakup may all have been a ploy to lure in more viewers for the show. If so, mission failed. Around 517,000 watched the show on Sunday night, down from 681,000 for last season's opening episode.
