"That is the most insane rumor."
WWE superstars Nikki Bella and John Cena have both moved on to new relationships since they called off their engagement - Nikki now dating her former “Dancing With the Stars” partner Artem Chigvintsev and Cena linked to Shay Shariatzadeh.
That said, Nikki is still entertaining questions about Cena, including whether or not he dated fellow WWE superstar, Carmella, following their breakup.
During a recent episode of "The Bellas Podcast," Nikki questioned Carmella about the rumor, asking her point-blank, "did you date my ex?"
Their conversation went as follows (H/T Cageside Seats)
Nikki: "Did you date my ex?"
Carmella: "Oh my God."
Brie: "That was everywhere."
Carmella: "That is the most insane rumor, because at the time that was when I broke up with my ex. And because John lives in Tampa, I lived in Tampa. Apparently he was seen out at a bar or something, so people just assumed ‘oh Carmella lives in Tampa. She must have been at that same bar’. It was so insane. I don’t know how you did it for so long."
Nikki: "So tough and I never even asked because I knew. John and I were still talking at that point. We even talked about the rumors everywhere."
Carmella: "Where do they come up with this shit?"
On a previous episode of "The Bellas Podcast," Nikki opened up what it's like seeing Cena dating other women - and how she'd deliver a "rack-attack in a heartbeat" if Cena's new GF breaks his heart. “Still protective of that man,” she added.
