The wrestling champ is rumored to be romancing a new beau.
They were a match made in professional wrestling heaven, but former lovers John Cena and Nikki Bella have been over for about six months now. WWE fans are still crossing their fingers that these two will find love with one another once again, but according to TMZ, the Bella twin, real name Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, isn't trying to recycle her old relationships. There have been rumors that Cena and Bella have rekindled their flame, especially after she posted a photo of the two cuddling up in a hot tub. However, according to TMZ, Cena is very much in the past and Bella may have moved on to a new beau: her friend and Dancing with the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev.
The news source says that Artem recently decided to spend his day off with Bella, so he hopped a plane to Los Angeles and took her to the Beverly Hills hotspot, Wally's. In a television clip posted on his Instagram, Artem shares a flirtatious exchange between himself and Bella writing, "Two steppin my way right onto another tv show 😉."
Cena and Bella's relationship unfolded for fans in reality television, beginning on Total Divas and into the show's spin-off series, Total Bellas. Cena, who initially stated that he would never get married again nor have children, would later propose to Bella in the middle of a wrestling ring at Wrestlemania 33. The on-again-off-again relationship played out for the public, but last year on an episode of Total Bellas, Nikki shared why she just couldn't make the relationship work after calling off their Spring wedding.
"So he's waiting for my final decision, which I think I know it. I'm just afraid to say it, because I just don't want to hurt him," Bella said at the time. "It's just hard when you love someone so much and you care for them so much, but you just can't do it anymore. It's not his fault. It's not my fault. We've had this amazing love story and it's just come to an end."
