Ariana Grande and her husband Dalton Gomez have separated after two years of marriage, according to multiple reports.

On Monday (17 July), TMZ reported that the “7 Rings” singer and the 27-year-old real estate broker have separated and are “heading toward divorce”. The news comes just days after Grande, 30, was spotted without her wedding ring at the Wimbledon 2023 tennis championships in London over the weekend.

The couple have reportedly been “having problems” since before Grande began filming the movie musical adaptation of Wicked in London, with one source telling People that the pair are now working on their “friendship”.

Prior to her 2021 nuptials, Grande was previously engaged to Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson. However, they called off their engagement in October 2018 after just five months together. The Victorious star also dated Mac Miller from 2016 to 2018. The late rapper died in September of that year from an accidental overdose at age 26.
