Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks on Twitter have words for each other. Brooks, of the Australian YouTube group The Janoskians, has accused the 20-year-old singer-songwriter of cheating on him. On Oct. 7, 2013, Ariana responded on Twitter in part with, "I'm finally happy. Words can't hurt me anymore."
Brooks left a lengthy comment on Twitter regarding Grande, whom he dated from August 2012 to July 2013. Grande is dating Nathan Sykes of The Wanted, but Brooks accuses Grande of cheating on him with Sykes before his relationship with her ended. On Oct. 7, 2013, Brooks tweeted, in part:
"Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck. Yes I was left for another man. And this happens everyday to so many people of every age, gender, race. I happen to be one of those people and I'm in a situation where I am constantly reminded of it every day. Like anyone who has been cheated on, it has been tough for me but I'm finally ready to move on. Once you are cheated on you should never go back and I did because I wasn't ready to give up on love and something that was everything to me. I wasn't ready to give up on something that was causing me to smile and be happy day in and day out. That's what relationships do, they make you the happiest person in the world and all of a sudden a miserable wreck. That is why if you know someone who is in a relationship, I'm begging you to please not interfere with that, because you are going to destroy someone and crush their world. 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."
Do you believe Grande cheated on Brooks with Sykes? Brooks took the gloves off with his tweet. In addition, Brooks was not afraid to name Sykes as the alleged person who started a relationship with Grande when Grande was allegedly still dating Brooks.
However, Grande didn't pull any punches either. On Oct. 7, 2013, Ariana Grande said to Jai Brooks on Twitter:
Woke up this morning in complete and utter shock... I guess I shouldn't be so surprised. You said to me if I didn't come back to you, you'd make me look bad to the entire world... I'm no longer afraid of you or your lies anymore. I'm going to be the lady my mother raised and carry myself with class and dignity... But I will never be any man's press opportunity. Girls... RESPECT YOURSELVES. Keep your head held high and speak only kind words. Know your truth... no one can ever take that away from you. It's always ok to defend yourself. My fans know what kind of person I am. Never let any man discredit u or the values you were raised with. I'm finally happy. Words can't hurt me anymore."
What did Nathan Sykes on Twitter have to say about it all? Absolutely nothing as of this writing.
Social networking has become the tell-all place for celebs to air their problems. Sometimes being so candid gets them into serious trouble, and sometimes it just gets them more fans. Young people, in particular, are not afraid to air their dirty laundry to the world.
