Former WWE Divas Champion, Nikki Bella, has revealed that her and fiancé Artem Chigvintsev are currently undergoing couples therapy.
Since the pair became an item following Bella’s appearance on Dancing With The Stars in the United States, everything has seemed like bliss in their lives. The couple became engaged and welcomed their first child, Matteo, into the world in July 2020, with no sign of relationship stress even when the star revealed that she had aspirations to return to the squared circle within the next couple of years.
Now, Nikki Bella has taken to the Off The Vine Podcast in order to reveal that the couple are attending therapy because of her partner’s temper:
“When he gets really stressed, he doesn’t realize his tone. We’re actually in therapy for this. I remember even in dress rehearsals, sometimes I’d be like, ‘Is he mad at me?’ It would make me feel really off and it would just be his tone.”
He kind of made a comment about my jive and got really mad at me. And I was like, ‘You know what, dude? J.Lo and Beyoncé don’t jive and I don’t have time for this. I walked out. And I got in my car and I remember at the time calling [former fiancé] John [Cena] and going, ‘I’m quitting. I’m not going to stand for this. He’s a dick.’ He gets in a very serious mode. There’s no, we’re building and having fun and giggling. He’s like, ‘I’m building this. I’m concentrating.’ No joke.”
Prior to the turn of 2021, it was Chigvintsev – formerly the star of British show Strictly Come Dancing – that revealed his intended and sister Brie were headed back to the WWE within the next few years so their children could see them compete before the pair finally called time on their in-ring careers.
Nikki Bella has also showed an interest in occupying a creative role in the company alongside brother-in-law Daniel Bryan when her time between the ropes is finally at an end.
