Pop Star Ariana Grande Declares Split from Spouse Dalton Gomez
Ariana Grande, 30, and Dalton Gomez, 28, have officially filed for divorce, as reported by PEOPLE.
While news of their separation surfaced in July, the couple delayed submitting the formal divorce documents for two months. Their decision to file at this time was intentional, as they desired to handle the intricacies of their agreement privately. Trusted sources close to Grande and Gomez describe their approach to the divorce as “compassionate and understanding,” highlighting their mutual respect throughout the process. Both parties have since moved forward.
Despite the separation, Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez are parting on good terms. An informant disclosed that the challenges of a long-distance relationship, with Grande’s involvement in the film “Wicked” in London, played a role in their decision to separate. Nonetheless, Grande has expressed her admiration for Gomez, stating that he was her strongest supporter during their marriage.
The couple initiated their relationship in January 2020 and made a public appearance together in Grande’s music video for “Stuck with U” in May of the same year. They got engaged in December 2020 and quietly tied the knot on May 15, 2021.
Following their separation, it was revealed that Ariana Grande is now dating her “Wicked” co-star and Broadway veteran Ethan Slater. Slater, who was previously married to high school classmate Lilly Jay and welcomed a child in January, filed for divorce from Jay in July.
Grande officially filed for divorce on Monday in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the dissolution. Noted family law attorney Laura Wasser is representing Grande in the divorce proceedings.
Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez had an intimate wedding ceremony in 2021, attended by fewer than 20 people at their home in Montecito. The couple previously shared moments from their special day on social media, radiating joy and love.
Despite the separation, Ariana Grande continues her professional journey with her involvement in the film adaptation of “Wicked” in London, alongside a talented cast, before the SAG-AFTRA strike in July.
