The Bella sisters have talked about their childhood before, but in Incomparable, both Nikki and Brie really opened up about their parents' fighting, their father Jon Garcia leaving their mom for another woman, his drug addiction and more.
"When you grow up how we did, you equate love and pain," Brie wrote, later adding that she and Nikki found solace in their "Nana and Pop Pop."
Brie continued, "Nicole and I would put up a front that we were strong, but inside we had imploded. We had no confidence, we were terrified. It sort of felt like we were living a double life. In front of my grandparents, we pretended like our home life was perfect, wholesome, and complete. I think they knew that it was actually broken, that we were being hurt by our dad, and that it was all very toxic."
The twins explained that, in addition to themselves, their mom and father have since "recovered" from the hard years.
"For better or for worse, he taught us how to fight—and he certainly knew how," Brie wrote.
