The date of separation is listed as Feb. 20, 2023. TMZ was first to report news of the filing.
The insider explained that the marriage “didn’t work” once the Grammy winner went to film Wicked in London and it became long distance, but added, “Ari has nothing but kind words to say about Dalton. During their marriage, he was her No. 1 fan.”
The now exes began dating in January 2020 and made their relationship official when they appeared together in the music video for Grande's song with Justin Bieber, "Stuck with U" in May of that year. After they announced their engagement in December 2020, they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on May 15, 2021.
While the two kept their relationship relatively private, Grande celebrated their second wedding anniversary in May by sharing a snap from their wedding day on her Instagram Story along with the message "I love him so."
An additional source close to the situation tells of Grande and Slater, “They are doing their best to balance the fact that they are in the public eye with the desire to be respectful to all parties involved.”
“They are just trying to navigate their new relationship in private,” the source added.
Grande is set to star as Glinda, while Slater will play Boq, in Jon M. Chu’s film adaption of the hit Broadway musical Wicked. The movie began shooting in the U.K. in 2022 with plans for release in November 2024, although it remains unclear if the SAG-AFTRA strike will affect its premiere.
