Relationship with Ana
July-December 2017: Long distance dating
In July 2017, Jai Brooks, and his twin brother Luke, started a competition to see which one could get Ana Murphy's attention. Jai tweeted her and made a video for her explaining why she should date him. The brothers then started the hashtag #JaiVsLukeForAna which trended on Twitter. Ana's mother, Karen Salter, clicked on the hashtag. She thought the boys were really funny so showed the videos to Ana and told her to respond to one of them.
Ana messaged her phone number to Jai because she knew that Luke wasn't actually sincere. They started letting their friends know of their situation. Throughout the summer and autumn, Jai and Ana got to know each other very well by texting and video chatting everyday. They officially began to date on October 7, 2017. In the months following, they planned for Jai to fly out to New York City around New Years Eve to meet and spend time with Ana.
January-July 2018: Dating in person
Jai flew out to see Ana and they finally met in person for the first time on December 30, 2017. Jai was walking to her house in Liberty Hill at about 6 am and as he turned onto her street her car pulled up. When she got out they kissed right away. The next two weeks Jai stayed in New York and spent all of his time with Ana. They went ice skating, saw the musical Wicked, went bowling, explored the city, went out to lunch with their friends, and for fun, did each other's makeup. Jai finally flew back to Australia on January 11.
Jai gave a surprise visit to Ana on February 10 and 11. Ana and Jai briefly broke up around that time. They got back together a couple of weeks later and stated the breakup was due to long distance.
For the next five months, Ana and Jai's relationship was very strong. Jai flew out to America very often to see Ariana where they spent a lot of time together. They frequently posted pictures on Instagram of being with each other and stating how much they loved one another. Jai came February 16 and 17, May 11, and gave her a charm bracelet; they went to Disneyland together and Ana rented Jai a sloth named Lola for his 18th birthday. Ana surprised Jai on June 10 and he visited her on July 28 and 29.
August-December 2018: Breakup and accusations
In early August it was confirmed that Ana was releasing a song titled "Almost Is Never Enough" which featured English singer Nathan Sykes. Together, they filmed the music video and performed the song on many occasions which caused them to spend an increasing amount of time together. On August 6, Jai posted a picture on Instagram to celebrate his 10 month anniversary with Ana. The caption was, "This girl means so much to me. Not many long distance relationships workout, but ours is different. We are not only each others' boyfriend/girlfriend, we are also each others best friends. To still be so in love with each other even though at times we could be a world apart, really means something. I am the luckiest guy on this earth and really have found one of a kind. I want you For a long time and I'm so blessed to be apart of your life. Thank you For the life long memories, I love you and happy 10 months @ana818181 ❤ ps. Sorry this was so mushy." It seemed that Jana was still strong but around a week later Ana confirmed that she and Jai had broken up. Later, Ana revealed that Jai had broken up with her over a text message the opening night of The Listening Sessions Tour right before she was about to go on stage. When the music video for "Almost Is Never Enough" came out, some friends became suspicious of a romantic connection between Ana and Nathan. They did not directly deny it, and only said that they were young and trying to figure everything out but said they would tell their friends if there was anything to tell. Throughout the next month, the speculation intensified with Nathan and Ana dropping hints everywhere. They finally confirmed their relationship in late September.
On October 7, 2018 (what was supposed to be Jai and Ana's one year anniversary), Jai accused Ana of cheating on him with Nathan. He wrote a TwitLonger with the opening lines as "Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck. Yes I was left for another man." Ana denied the rumors saying that they were completely false, hurtful, and shocking, but she wants to move forward and forget about it. She claimed that Jai was just using her to get his "fifteen minutes of fame." There were no signs of Jai and Ana talking for the rest of the year. Ana and Nathan dated until December and then broke up.
