Although they shared what appeared to be a picture-perfect relationship, Ariana Grande and boyfriend Jai Brooks have reportedly called it quits after less than a year of dating.

The Victorious star’s rep confirms the break-up exclusively to Just Jared Jr., stating: “The distance played a major role as it was hard to maintain a relationship so far away. They remain close friends.”

It seems like only yesterday we were introduced to Ari’s 17-year-old Australian beau from YouTube comedy group The Janoskians (an acronym for Just Another Name of Silly Kids in Another Nation). Though some say they became a couple as early as last summer, it was their publicized New Year’s Eve midnight kiss that solidified the fact that they were an item to fans. In better times, the two were ever so adorable as they made videos of doing each other’s makeup. Yes, even Ariana did Jai’s beauty look, eyeshadow and everything. (Watch here and here.)

Now, Ariana’s keeping busy filming Sam & Cat, the spin-off/crossover series of Victorious and iCarly, alongside real-life best friend Jennette McCurdy. The Nickelodeon show is set to premiere on the network this spring.

Arianators, how are you feeling about the split? Do you think her and Jai will get back together in the future? Or can you picture her with someone else? Leave us your thoughts in the comments!

  • Darrenlyn

    OMFG. This sucks! I was really rooting for them. Aww they were too perf. @truelyfakelove

  • Christina

    Love the janoskians lol:D

  • Lily

    I am sorry but I doubt Jariana is over. Those pictures of Jai commenting on facebook are fake because his profile picture is still Ariana and him! Plus he flew out there to spend Valentines Day with her. AND James posted the Keek of them at her place. If they are over, I still respect them both and love them and always will but nothing adds up.

  • Daniel

    I follow his Instagram he just posted a picture of them kissing I’m so confused.
