Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez have initiated divorce proceedings after two years of marriage. On Monday, September 18, Ariana's legal representative, Laura Wasser, filed the initial petition, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the separation. Dalton followed suit shortly after that.
The former couple agreed on all matters before formally submitting to the court. According to reports, their separation date was February 20. Despite their split, Ariana, aged 30, and Dalton, aged 28, have demonstrated mutual care and respect throughout the process. Reach dailypopmix.com for more updates.
Engaged in the production
The news of their divorce coincides with Ariana's ongoing relationship with her Wicked co-star, Ethan Slater. The two met in late 2022 while working on the forthcoming film adaptation of the renowned Broadway production.
It is speculated that the couple's marriage began to falter several months later, possibly due to their geographical distance, with Ariana working on Wicked in England and Dalton residing in California. Despite reportedly attempting to reconcile earlier this year, Ariana and Dalton have formally ended their relationship.
Initiated legal proceedings to obtain a divorce
However, it was not until July that news of the Break Up With Your Boyfriend singer's relationship with Ethan, aged 31, surfaced, just days after the announcement of her separation from Dalton. That same month, Ethan filed for divorce from his now-estranged wife, Lilly Jay, whom he married in November 2018.
The couple welcomed their son in 2022. Upon learning of her estranged husband's relationship with Ariana, Lilly criticized the Don't Look Up actress in a statement to Page Six: The story is really not about a girl's girl. My family is merely collateral damage The story revolves around her and Dalton.
Lilly emphasized her commitment to being a responsible mother to her and Ethan's child. Neither Ariana nor Ethan has publicly commented on their ongoing romance.
However, according to various sources, the 7 Rings artist subtly expressed her support for the Broadway performer by liking his Instagram post on September 6. Previously, Ethan had made his Instagram account private following reports of his and Lilly's tumultuous divorce circulating online.
