The couple has been vocal about their struggles in recent months. Cena spoke to Entertainment Tonight in March. "It's a weird thing that our relationship is public for the world to know, [but] what a good takeaway for the folks at home -- relationships are tough," Cena, 33, said. "It's hard work, and a lot of times, it has to do with looking at yourself."

Neither Cena nor Bella has further commented about the decision. They had been together for six years.
