“Things had been going really well for Ariana and Dalton since they got married,” a source told Us Weekly on Monday, July 17. “But unfortunately they hit a rough patch a few months ago and haven’t been able to recover.”
A second insider told the publication that “they haven’t been speaking and are separated,” noting that “a divorce is likely.”
TMZ was first to report the news on, July 17, with an insider telling the publication that they “have been separated since January, and they are heading toward divorce.”
The news comes days after Ariana was spotted without her wedding ring while attending Wimbledon in London, on Sunday, July 16, sitting alongside Andrew Garfield and her Wicked co-star Jonathan Bailey.
Ariana and Dalton first sparked romance rumors in early 2020, and confirmed their relationship in June of that year. By December 2020, they were engaged.
“I am so excited to welcome Dalton Gomez into our family!” the singer’s mom, Joan Grande, tweeted after the engagement news broke. “Ariana, I love you and Dalton so much!!!! Here’s to happily ever after! YAY! xoxoxo.”
The former couple officially tied the knot in May 2021.
