The contemporary popular singer, Ariana Grande, is often in the news these days. Her professional as well as personal life has caught much of the attention of the media. In July 2023, the 30-year-old singer, reportedly decided to walk away from her husband, Dalton Gomez, after two years of marriage. Since then, the media has been abuzz with reports of Ariana dating her Wicked co-star, Ethan Slater.
Ethan Slater is an actor and singer, who is known for his role as the titular character from the musical, SpongeBob SquarePants. Ethan filed for divorce from his wife, Lilly Jay, in July, around the same time when Ariana reportedly separated from Dalton. Ethan and Lilly welcomed a baby boy in 2022.
As per an exclusive report by Dailymail, Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater are living together in New York City. This comes two months after his divorce from his estranged wife, Lilly James. While Ethan has reportedly been separated from Lilly, on the other hand, Ariana has yet to decide what she will do about her relationship with her husband, Dalton Gomez. A source who has knowledge regarding the whole situation said:
“Ariana is living with a married man right now while she is still married.It seems as if Ariana is holding onto Dalton in case things with Ethan don't work. It is just so strange that she is living with Ethan and has not filed documents to end it with Dalton.”
For the unversed, Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater first met on the set of their upcoming film, Wicked. The duo first met in December 2022 during their filming schedules in the UK. Ariana will play ‘Glinda’, the good witch, while Ethan will play ‘Boq’, the munchkin.
As per a report by People, Ariana and Ethan were just ‘friends’ until they severed all ties with their respective partners. But the Dailymail reports state otherwise. A second source told the news portal that the duo, Ariana and Ethan, never intended to come under the spotlight. The source said:
“Ariana and Ethan never intended for their relationship to go public. They were hoping to keep it a secret and go back to their marriages as if nothing had happened. But this was not possible because they got caught. Now they are stuck together and have really nothing in common with each other. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.”
In the same Dailymail report, multiple sources claimed that they witnessed the duo, Ariana and Ethan, being ‘sloppy’ both on and off set. They said:
“They were seen being all over each other while he was still supposedly happily married to Lilly. They were seen making out at a pub in Hampstead, and they were all over each other at Michelle Yeoh's Oscar party.”
On September 6, 2023, the 31-year-old actor, Ethan Slater took to his Instagram account to share a few snaps related to his upcoming musical, Spamalot. The same post was liked by his rumoured girlfriend, Ariana Grande.
