John Cena and Nikki Bella shocked the public when they announced their split ahead of their May 5 wedding, although a source is now saying that they are definitely getting back together.
The insider says that the exes are still keeping in touch with each other. Cena has been communicating with Bella and that this marks a good path toward reconciliation.
"They will almost definitely get back together ... At the end of the day, they still want to be together," the source tells People.
The insider claims that Cena realized after the split that he does not want to be alone and thought it would be a "huge mistake" if he let go of Bella for good. He knows that he is not going to find anyone else like her, so he wants to make things work again with her.
The source then makes a comparison with the exes' wedding to that in Sex and the City and claims the "wedding got bigger than the both of them." Cena and Bella supposedly initially wanted an intimate ceremony with close friends and family as guests. However, the nonstop wedding publicity rattled the 41-year-old actor and caused a rift in the relationship.
"They got away from what made them work, which is the bond that's just between John and Nicole — not John Cena, WWE Superstar, and Nikki Bella of the Bella Twins. They need to regroup, and they both want to do that," the insider adds.
Before Bella moved in with Cena, the latter made her sign a 75-page cohabitation agreement because he was a control freak. However, the insider claims that he is willing to change this part of him just to make the relationship work again.
Cena has supposedly realized that he is the one who needs to make changes since Bella does not need to change a thing about who she is. The Blockers actor is said to be considering making those changes now because the thought of being without Bella forever scares him.
"He needs to figure out a way to get past some of his fears and control-freak issues, many of which he comes by honestly because of his past," the insider explains.
The insider's claims come after another source tells US Weekly that Bella has not moved out of Cena's apartment per his request. She is still spending nights at his home. However, Bella reveals in a YouTube video on Tuesday that she is staying with her sister Brie and her husband.
Bella announced her split from Cena on social media three weeks before their wedding. Rumors have it that the split was because of their opposing stance on marriage and having kids. The couple was together for six years.
