A source close to the estranged couple shed light on the situation and mentioned to the media outlet, People, that Dalton's career has been an issue for the duo. The source said:
"She was happy in Los Angeles for a couple of years. She wanted to make a life there with Dalton. He is super focused on his career and needs to live in Los Angeles. It's definitely been an issue for them. Dalton's career is demanding, and he can't leave Los Angeles often. So when [Grande] started filming Wicked in England, they were in for a long-distance marriage."

They first crossed paths in December 2022 while filming for their upcoming film in the UK. According to People, Ariana and Ethan were initially just friends until they ended their relationships with their respective spouses. However, conflicting reports from the Daily Mail suggest otherwise. A source informed the news outlet that Ariana and Ethan never intended to attract attention to their relationship. 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 to have witnessed 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.”
