Nikki and Brie Garcia, formerly known as the Bella Twins, have spoken out regarding the recent sexual assault allegations against the WWE — including their stepdad John Laurinaitis, former head of talent relations at WWE.

Warning: Sexual violence

"We are shocked and disheartened with the recent allegations against members of the WWE. It has been a lot to process since we just found out this past week as you all did," the 40-year-old twins wrote via a joint Instagram statement on Monday (Jan. 29).

In their statement, the former WWE superstars, who retired in March 2023 and have since been going by the Garcia Twins, noted their support for their victims.

"This is something we don’t stand for or condone from anyone no matter who they are. We want all women to feel safe and supported in the workplace and in their everyday lives," they wrote.

The twins didn't directly call out their stepfather — who has been married to Nikki and Brie's mom Kathy since 2016 — by name in their statement.

Last week, a former WWE employee filed a sexual assault lawsuit against the wrestling company and executive chairman Vince McMahon.

Janel Grant alleges the WWE founder assaulted her and subjected her to sex trafficking when she worked at the company, forcing her to perform sexual acts with "extreme cruelty and degradation."

Laurinaitis was also named in the lawsuit, which was filed in Connecticut on Jan. 25.

Grant is suing for unspecified damages.
