According to claims of insiders close to Ariana Grande and her husband Dalton Gomez, the couple have been apart since January and are on the verge of divorcing, says a report by TMZ.
Concerns were raised by Grande fans when the singer was recently seen attending the Wimbledon finale without her wedding ring.
Grande was observed watching the game and reacting to it by covering her mouth with her right hand. This attracted attention because her left hand was seen laying on her lap without a ring. Dalton Gomez, Ariana’s husband, was not present at the event.
Relationship Timeline: Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez
Ariana Grande and her husband Dalton Gomez allegedly started dating in January 2020. A viral video of the pop diva and former dancer kissing at Bar Louie in Northridge, California, in February 2020 marked their first public appearance together.
While under quarantine at Grande’s Los Angeles home during the COVID-19 outbreak, the couple reportedly grew closer. Fans had also seen Gomez on Grande’s Instagram Stories at the time.
The two made their debut in Grande and Justin Bieber’s music video for “Stuck With U” in May 2020. They slow-danced to the love song at the end of the video and engaged in cute PDA.
Ariana Grande made her engagement to Gomez official on December 20. The pop star captions a sequence of photos with her fiancé on Instagram with the phrase “forever n then some.” Two of the shots also showed her magnificent diamond engagement ring.
“They got married,” a rep for Grande shared the news with People on May 17. “It was tiny and intimate—less than 20 people,” the rep continued. “The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.”
Now, a source close to the situation claims that the couple’s relationship has suffered because of the physical distance between them. According to the insider, Gomez and the 29-year-old singer only have brief interactions now.
This isn’t the first time that rumors about the couple have surfaced; in April, pictures of Ari without her wedding ring appeared online. However, neither Ariana nor Gomez have confirmed any of these speculations.
