Jai Brooks reveals to fans how ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande was cheating on him with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes before they'd even broken up.
The YouTube prankster appeared to confirm rumors that his 'Victorious' star girlfriend has in fact cheated on him with her new boyfriend in a lengthy rant over Twitter, after the two emerged to be dating only weeks after Ariana and Jai's relationship ended.

The rumours are true as The Wanted's Nathan Sykes and American singer Ariana Grande confirm they are dating via their twitter accounts.
The Wanted's Nathan Sykes confirms he is dating American singer-song writer Ariana Grande via his twitter account today (24th Sept).
The duo who teamed up to record the love song 'Almost is Never Enough' decided to take the next step and go public with their relationship after being spotted on a romantic trip to Disneyland.
The singers first met when they teamed up to record the soundtrack for fantasy movie 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' earlier this summer (2013) which led to a steamy music video for the single, where the duo were getting very intimate with one another.
All five members of the band performed at the Summertime Ball.
Nathan Sykes made his triumphant return to The Wanted this weekend, during the band’s performance at the Summertime Ball. Sykes had been off on a mandatory hiatus, after suffering a hemorrhaging nodule, but he seemed pumped for his first performance with them after the break. Naturally, he gave the obligatory gratitude to fans over Twitter after the show: 'Thanks for all the love today. Really put a smile on my face …'
The rest of the band also made a big event out of Nathan’s return and posted a celebratory tweet: 'He's back!!!!!!!!! #WelcomeBackNath.' The performance went off without a hitch, but Sykes’ return was in question up until the very last days, the Daily Mail reports. Before the concert, the singer commented that he would be “gutted” if he didn’t get to perform. About The Wanted’s upcoming Summertime Ball appearance, he said: 'I'd love to be there, we've been lucky enough to perform at every Summer Time Ball so far so I'd be gutted to miss it but I've got to take each day as it comes.”
He also talked about the slow recovery process: “I've had good days and bad days, days when I've tried singing and its been back to what it was and then had days when its been like I'm going backwards again but I'm having speech therapy and vocal coaching to try and get the strength back.”

Singer needs operation to save voice
Worrying news for fans of The Wanted, the group themselves, and more importantly, Nathan Sykes. It’s been confirmed by the boy group’s press management that the singer has been forced to book in surgery on his throat in an effort to save his voice.
According to the band’s publicist, “The Wanted's Nathan Sykes will under go specialist throat surgery on Thursday 18th April in Los Angeles and as such will be taking unforeseen hiatus from The Wanted.” Bad news for Nathan, as tomorrow happens to be his birthday. “The priority for Nathan, his label and management is that he is given time to recover and receive the best treatment possible” the statement continued. “The remaining four members of The Wanted will continue fulfilling the bands promotional commitments across the world.”
The group have a number of live engagements to fulfill this year, which the Independent has confirmed will still take place but without Sykes. It’s a blow for the group, though, who’ve been following their peers One Direction in making major inroads on the United States after storming the UK with two number one hits and a platinum selling second album in Battleground. They had hoped to be back in the studio to record their third album, though this will of course now not be possible for the foreseeable future.
