STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 10 (UPI) -- WWE Superstar Paige has been suspended for 60 days following a second violation of the company's wellness policy.

"WWE has suspended Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige) for 60 days effective immediately, for her second violation of the company's talent wellness policy," the company said in a statement Monday.

The Total Divas star responded to the news on Twitter, explaining that she failed a second drug test due to doctor prescribed medicine she is taking.

"Same [expletive] different day," she wrote. "Kids..Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable."

Paige recently served a 30-day suspension stemming from a wellness policy violation in August. She was suspended alongside her boyfriend and now ex-WWE performer Alberto Del Rio.

Del Rio's departure spurred rumors that Paige's time with the company was up however she refuted those claims on social media stating that she would return once her injury is treated and that she was originally suspended for missing a drug test as opposed to testing positive for banned substances.

According to WWE, the talent wellness program is used to address the health and well-being of its talent and is "administered independently by world renowned medical professionals and includes cardiovascular testing, ImPACTT, testing for brain function, substance abuse and drug testing, annual physicals, and health care referrals."
