Personal life, ex-husband John Cena

Elizabeth met John Cena when they both studied in high school. After several years of dating John proposed in 2009, announcing their engagement during a promotional event for his movie “12 Rounds”. The couple married the same year, but their marriage didn’t last long, as John filed for divorce in 2012. The reason for divorce appeared to be their disagreement over the modeling of their new house which went wrong, and John refused to pay the contractor, owing him around $110,000.

This caused Elizabeth and John to continue living in their old house for a longer period they counted upon, so they had a big argument and eventually divorced. The couple didn’t have any kids.

Elizabeth hasn’t showed up in the media, while John began dating Nikki Bella (real name – Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace) in 2012, who is a retired wrestler from The Bella Twins team.

John is still single, while his ex-fiancé is dating Artem Chigvintsev, the Russian-American professional dancer, whom she met on the TV show “Dancing with the Stars”.

Nikki says that she decided to break up from John Cena because he didn’t want any kids, but it was still a hard decision for her: ‘Do I leave the man I love, or do I stay with him and just sacrifice kids and marriage?’, she reasoned during her interview in the reality show “Total Divas”.
