The 18-year-old broke up with Hooker after he was arrested earlier this month.



The stomach-turning romance between a California teen and her 41-year-old former teacher is back on.

Jordan Powers told Sacramento TV station CBS13 that she and James Hooker were back together in an interview conducted at Hooker’s Modesto apartment.

The 18-year-old had called it quits a week-and-a-half ago after Hooker was arrested on charges he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student in 1998.

“He called me from jail, and yes, I told him we’re done,” she said on “Good Morning America” shortly after Hooker’s April 6 arrest. “I lost everything for this guy. I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn’t agree with me.”

The teen moved out of the couple’s apartment following Hooker’s arrest and flew with her mother to a friend’s house in Ohio, the Modesto Bee reported.

“She requested the distance, she asked to fly to Ohio,” her mother, Tammie Powers, told the newspaper.

When asked by the TV station if she had any comment on the charges Hooker’s facing, the teen said, “I’m just not interested in talking at all.”

Her mother tipped off the TV station after her daughter moved out again.

“I’m disgusted,” Tammie Powers, told the TV station. “In my view, he’s a pedophile.”

She said that almost immediately after Hooker was released from jail, he began calling her daughter repeatedly and tried to win her back.

“He’s relentless,” she said. “And this is what they do, he’s very manipulative ... he’s not going to quit.”

Powers and Hooker made national news earlier this year when they appeared on “Dr. Phil” and “Good Morning America” to defend their relationship after Hooker left his family to start a new life with his onetime student.

They claim that nothing sexual happened before Jordan was 18, making their relationship legal.

In addition to confronting the couple on national television, Powers’ mother, Tammie, took her campaign against her daughter’s relationship to the California legislature, where she helped Republican Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen introduce legislation that make it a felony for any teacher to have a sexual relationship with a student - even if they are 18.

She wrote on her Facebook page earlier this week that she was back at the Capitol lobbying for the law.

“Exhausted,” she posted on Tuesday night.

A neighbor of the controversial couple told the Bee that he’s shocked to see the teen back.

“I thought her mom would talk some senseinto her,” he said. “But it shows how much he is in her head now.”

Hooker remains out on bail but will return to court on May 15.
