Los Angeles, CA — Pop superstar Ariana Grande has decided to go separate ways with her husband, Dalton Gomez, according to legal proceedings initiated this week. Grande commenced the divorce process on Monday in Los Angeles, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the dissolution of their marriage.
Represented by family law attorney Laura Wasser in the divorce, Ariana Grande has not yet commented publicly on the matter. Gomez’s representation also remains undiscovered at this time.
The couple, who exchanged vows in a private ceremony in 2021, had a small and intimate wedding with fewer than 20 attendees. The ceremony generated a radiating atmosphere of bliss and overflowing love, according to a comment from the representative for the “Thank U, Next” singer. Images from the couple’s wedding at their Montecito residence were later posted on Grande’s Instagram, showcasing the singer in a Vera Wang wedding gown and Gomez in a Tom Ford suit.
Marriage between the two came two years after Grande’s previous high-profile engagement with comedian Pete Davidson. Grande’s relationship with Gomez, a real estate agent by profession, was made public through her 2020 song “Stuck with U”, a collaboration with Justin Bieber, in which Gomez appeared in the music video. Their engagement announcement came in the same year.
Rumor mills started churning about a possible split between Grande and Gomez earlier in July, when the “Sweetener” singer was seen without her wedding ring at Wimbledon. Last sighting of the couple on Grande’s social media was noticed in November, and since then, the couple has been keeping a low profile about their relationship.
In recent times, Ariana Grande has been actively working on the film adaptation of the acclaimed musical “Wicked” in London. The star-studded cast includes Bailey, Cynthia Erivo, Jeff Goldblum, Michelle Yeoh, and Bowen Yang. The filming halted with the onset of the SAG-AFTRA strike in July.
