Ariana Grande to pay ex-husband Dalton Gomez $1.25 million as divorce is finalized

Ariana Grande has one less problem — and more than a million fewer dollars — now that she and ex Dalton Gomez have finalized their divorce.

The 30-year-old “Thank U, Next” singer’s marriage to the luxury real estate agent, 28, was officially dissolved in Los Angeles on Tuesday, just over six months after they both filed for divorce, according to court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight.

The former couple — who were first linked amid the pandemic in 2020 and wed in the spring 2021 — had a prenup in place, stipulating the Grammy winner would fork over a one-time, tax-free payment of $1.25 million, as well as pony up $25,000 for Gomez’s legal fees, per their settlement in October.

“There is still a strong mutual love and respect between Ariana and Dalton and they wanted to make sure everything was done right in lockstep with one another,” an insider close to the situation told TMZ at the time.

While their split wasn’t made public until last summer, Grande and Gomez parted ways in February 2023, according to the pop star’s divorce filing. Both filings cited “irreconcilable differences.”

But news of the split itself was quickly overshadowed by reports days later of Grande’s new romance with her 31-year-old “Wicked” co-star Ethan Slater.

Less than a week later, Slater, known for playing Spongebob on Broadway, filed for divorce from wife Lilly Jay. The reported high school sweethearts, who welcomed a son in 2022, tied the knot in 2018.

It’s still unclear when Grande and Slater started dating, though the timelines have certainly inspired speculation.

A source last summer told Entertainment Tonight that the pair “didn’t start dating until both were broken up with their significant others.”
