Alberto Del Rio was Paige’s number one supporter after her recent sex tape scandal, but just eight months before the drama, the pair actually briefly split — and Paige revealed how ‘miserable’ she was about it on the April 5 episode of ‘Total Divas’!
Paige, 24, and Alberto Del Rio, 39, were drafted to separate teams, RAW and SmackDown, respectively, during the WWE Draft last July, and it nearly ruined their entire relationship! The intensity of the draft played out on the season premiere of Total Divas April 5, with footage showing Paige absolutely devastated by the decision….and revealing she and Alberto had split.
“Me and Alberto broke up,” she told the camera, after confirming that the situation made her “f***ing miserable.” “It makes me really sad because he’s the only guy I’ve ever loved.” The draft came just two months after the WWE stars went public with their relationship, so it was certainly a big roadblock for them. Paige actually Instagrammed loving shots of her man in the days following the July 19 event, but then, he was noticeably missing from her social media for two full months!
On Sept. 14, though, she posted an adorable mirror selfie of the pair, with his arms wrapped around her waist as he planted a kiss on her cheek. It was full steam ahead from there, as the very next month, Paige got down on one knee and proposed to her man.
In recent weeks, Alberto has publicly stood by his girl as she’s been at the center of a nude photo and sex tape leak. Paige confirmed the shocking photos and videos were of her, and admitted that there were days she was wanted to “physically harm” herself after they were released. Alberto has been there for her every step of the way, though. “It doesn’t matter how many times you try to break us,” he wrote on Instagram. “Is not gonna happen.” Awww.
