Ariana Grande found herself surrounded by a sea of eager fans as she exited the theater after watching her boyfriend, Ethan Slater, perform in the Broadway musical “Spamalot.” The singer, known for hits like “Thank U, Next,” was accompanied by a male friend who had dressed up as one of the knights from the show, embracing the Halloween spirit. Sporting a beige dress, a brown coat, and gloves, Grande added a touch of whimsy to her ensemble with a paper crown representing “Spamalot.” As she stepped out, fans eagerly approached her, requesting pictures before she entered a waiting limo.
Grande, 30, and Slater, a Tony-nominated actor aged 31, first crossed paths while working on the film adaptation of “Wicked” in December 2022. Months later, their professional connection blossomed into a romantic relationship. Numerous sources confirmed this development to Page Six, revealing that both Grande and Slater had parted ways with their previous partners. In October, Grande’s divorce from real estate agent Dalton Gomez, her husband of two years, was officially concluded. An insider shared that Grande and Gomez aimed to support each other through the difficult process, emphasizing their mutual respect. Similarly, Slater initiated divorce proceedings in July, ending his 10-year marriage with Lilly Jay, with whom he shares a one-year-old son. Jay voiced her disappointment with Grande, describing her as “the story” and criticizing the impact their relationship has had on her family.
Contrary to any negative comments, Grande and Slater are reportedly living together in New York City and are content with their current situation. According to a source, Slater informed his friends and soon-to-be ex-wife, Lilly Jay, about his decision to reside with Grande on a full-time basis. Describing them as a harmonious couple, the insider revealed that Grande’s friends adore Slater, emphasizing the positive impact he has on her life.
In anticipation of the musical’s opening on November 16, “Spamalot” promises to entertain audiences with a star-studded cast featuring Michael Urie, Christopher Fitzgerald, and Ethan Slater himself. The show is sure to captivate Broadway-goers as it brings humor, music, and knights to life on stage.
