Nikki Bella has moved on from John Cena, and the 35 year old WWE star is now dating her former DWTS partner Artem Chigvintsev.
The Total Bellas star was paired with Chignivtsev on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars in 2017. The two were eliminated six couples in, but have kept in touch since then according to E!.
The Russian-American and Bella were seen on a dinner date together and also rode a motorcycle together in the upcoming season trailer for Total Bellas.
Last month, Bella talked to E! about her dating life, saying, “But I guess I’m not really looking. I’m enjoying being single, but I’m not really living up to the perks of a single life.”
Bella broke up with John Cena in April after six years together. The couple reconciled for a bit and then broke up again in July.
After her breakup, the star was linked to Peter Kraus and even went on a date with him but it did not work out.
Reflecting on her 2018, Bella wrote on her Instagram, “I wanted to post 10 memorable photos. Of things I have accomplished and am so proud of. But this year has had a lot of highs and lows.”
She added, “I’m so honored to be thriving with amazing partners at Belle Radici in the wine business, I love love being apart of the fashion industry with Birdiebee, and fulfilling a dream coming back to the WWE ring for Evolution to represent FEARLESS.”
She revealed what she felt about grateful for, saying, “I’ve enjoyed staying low in December, a truly needed search I needed for my soul. I am grateful for 35 in November. There’s so much I have already learned and know. I’m ready to rack attack 2019. And say good bye to 2018 and begin the Total Bellas and Nikki show.”
According to a fan account, Chigvintsev “was born in the military town of Izhevsk in the former Soviet Union, where he often skied cross-country to school across the harsh Russian landscape.”
The account added, “At 13, he discovered his passion for dance when his parents enrolled him in classes at the local dance academy. He quickly displayed prodigious talent and knew that in order to fulfill his potential he needed to leave Izhevsk for greener pastures.”
The account said Chigvintsev’s DWTS career happened slowly, writing, “Artem worked hard until he earned a spot in 2010 as a professional dancer on the U.K. smash hit Strictly Come Dancing, which he won with celebrity partner Kara Tointon. After four successful seasons on the show, he jumped at an offer from the producers of Dancing with the Stars to come to Los Angeles in 2014 and begin his new journey in the U.S.”
Neither Bella nor Chigvintsev have commented on this rumor of their relationship.
