Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez have parted ways after three years together.
According to TMZ, who was first to report the news, the couple had been separated since January 2023. People also reported that the pair went their separate ways earlier this year.
Prior to their split, they attempted to reconcile without success. TMZ, People and Entertainment Tonight reported that Grande and Gomez remain friends, and talk regularly over the phone.
The duo reportedly started dating in early 2020, but didn’t choose to make anything public until May, and were happily sharing the news of their engagement by December.
Grande announced that she was engaged to Gomez on Dec. 20 with a series of snapshots, including a look at her ring. They tied the knot just five months later, in May 2021.
“Forever n then some,” she captioned the lovebirds’ photo gallery. But “forever” was not to be. The star filed for divorce on Sept. 18, 2023.
