Speaking out for the first time, Brie says a report that she "wants to kill" Cena just isn't true and that she loves the wrestler.
"I'd never say this and I'll always love @johncena like a brother," she explains on her Instagram story. "He'll always be family."
She goes on to add, "My heart is hurting for he[r] and my sister."
As The Blast reported, Nikki and John announced their breakup last week, ending their yearlong engagement and six-year relationship.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another," their joint statement read. "We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
