“Break up with your girlfriend, I’m bored” just took on a whole new meaning in the complicated love triangle between Ariana Grande, Ethan Slater, and his now-estranged wife, Lilly Jay. Just as quick as news broke on July 17 about Grande calling it quits with husband Dalton Gomez, reports are now surfacing that not only is the “Thank U, Next” singer in a relationship, but she’s apparently dating her “Wicked” costar Ethan Slater, who, as of recently, appeared to be married.

The timeline is complicated, with a source telling Us Weekly that the pair started dating after their respective breakups. “Ariana and Ethan are dating; however things are fairly new. Ariana and Dalton split in January, and Ethan is separated from his wife,” the source explained. Additionally, an insider told “Entertainment Tonight,” “They didn’t start dating until both were broken up with their significant others. Ariana and Dalton remain friends.”

But where things get complicated is on Slater’s Instagram, which he has since made private. In November 2022, he gushed about his wife on their wedding anniversary, and again on Mother’s Day in May 2023, writing (via E! News), “Happy first Mother’s Day to the most loving caring and wonderful mom/person in the world, from me and this little guy.” Meanwhile, Slater’s wife, Jay, is allegedly “completely blindsided” by the whole thing. “It’s horrible. They were high school sweethearts. They have a baby! She’s a wreck,” a source close to Jay revealed to Page Six.
