Grande’s return to social media comes a week after ET confirmed that she and husband Dalton Gomez had decided to end their marriage after two years. At the time, a source told ET that the pair — who married in May 2021 — “ultimately were just not a good fit.”

Three days after the news of Gomez and Grande’s split, another source confirmed that the singer is dating her Wicked co-star, Ethan Slater.

“Ariana and Ethan recently started dating. They have a lot in common and have a lot of fun,” the source said. “They didn’t start dating until both were broken up with their significant others. Ariana and Dalton remain friends.”

Slater is married to Lilly Jay, with whom he welcomed a child with in November 2021. The source shared that she is “devastated” by the breakup with her husband.

Neither Grande nor Slater has yet to speak out about their relationship.
