Ethan Slater, the Broadway actor who is reportedly dating Ariana Grande, has filed for divorce from his wife of four years, Lilly Jay.
Slater, 31, filed for divorce in New York on Wednesday, according to TMZ. The reason for the split was not listed.
Jay and Slater have a one-year-old son together.
Grande, 30, and Slater met while filming the upcoming film adaptation of Broadway’s Wicked. They were first seen together in public in May 2023.
Grande’s previous relationship was with real estate agent Dalton Gomez, whom she married in May 2021. The couple announced their separation in January 2023.
It is unclear if Grande and Slater are currently living together.
The news of Slater’s divorce filing comes amid a flurry of media attention surrounding Grande’s personal life. In addition to her split from Gomez, Grande has also been open about her struggles with mental health.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Grande said that she is “in a much better place” now than she was a few years ago. She also said that she is “not afraid to be vulnerable” anymore.
It remains to be seen how the news of Slater’s divorce filing will affect Grande’s life. However, it is clear that she is not afraid to face challenges head-on.
