Celebrities break up all the time, but 2018 has already seen some of the most heartbreaking splits. We’ve lost Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. The latest couple to prove that love is incredibly complicated is John Cena and Nikki Bella. After six years together, the two announced they’re calling off their engagement. So why did Cena and Bella break up?

Though we don’t know the private details of their — or anyone’s relationship — it seems like Cena acknowledged that maintaining a romance takes a lot of work. Last month, the WWE star opened up about the couple’s struggles.

He explained that due to their busy schedules, there were times they didn’t see each other for months at a time. Cena made similar comments to Entertainment Tonight, telling the website that often, he had to reexamine his role in making the relationship work.

The professional wrestlers got engaged in April 2017 at Wrestlemania 33 and have since been slowly revealing their wedding plans over the course of the year. But on Sunday, April 15th, the two shared news of their split via a brief statement to, and Bella also posted the statement to her Instagram page.

Later in the day, Cena seemingly addressed the news on Instagram by sharing a meme from The Simpsons that read “WORST DAY EVER!”

He also posted an iconic Walt Whitman quote earlier in the day, which seemed to addressed the breakup.

As sad as we are to see them go their separate ways, we sincerely hope that Cena and Bella find the happiness they both deserve.
