Although it's unclear how the couple first met, Gomez, 25, works in Los Angeles as a luxury real estate agent.

Amid the couple's wedding news, we decided to take a look back at Ariana Grande's relationship history.

Jai Brooks.

If you're an Australian under the age of 25, you'll probably remember The Janoskians. 

The Melbourne group quickly gained traction online when they started their YouTube channel in 2011.

And once Ariana Grande got involved, the group blew up overseas.

In 2012, two members of the group, twins Jai and Luke Brooks, started a competition to see which one could get Grande's attention.

After Grande's mother, Joan Grande, saw the group's YouTube video, she told the up-and-coming singer to respond to one of the twins.

Shortly afterwards, Grande messaged Jai Brooks on Twitter.
