The singer then attempted a long-distance relationship with an Aussie YouTube star from 2012 to 2014. Following their breakup, Jai took to Twitter to blast Ariana in a lengthy message and even accused her of cheating on him with Nathan Sykes. "Yes, I was cheated on. Yes, it does suck. Yes, I was left for another man," Jai wrote. "Nathan may be a top bloke or a sweet person, but what he did was just completely wrong. He interfered with my life and did not respect my relationship; his actions caused me to not be able to sleep at night and not see the world as a beautiful place. Nathan, if you read this, when you hold her hand, you better hold it tight because you are holding my world. I do wish you two happiness and a good life and hope everything works out."
Ariana then released a YouTube video in response to Jai's accusations. "I feel like how he handled it was a bit unexpected, but at the end of the day, my family, my friends, and my true fans know the type of person that I am," Ariana said. "Those kind of accusations being thrown at me are completely false. More than anything, just hurtful and shocking."
