Ariana Grande filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Dalton Gomez, on Monday after just two years of marriage, Page Six can confirm.
The pop star, who is being represented by celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.
Gomez reportedly filed his own divorce petition almost simultaneously.
Their date of separation was listed as Feb. 20.
Sources close to the situation tell Page Six that the estranged couple worked things out before going to the courthouse and that everything has been amicable.
TMZ reported that Grande will write Gomez a check.
Insiders told the outlet that there are no hard feelings between the two, who had a prenuptial agreement in place, as “they’ve been really caring and respectful of one another every step of this process.”
Their reps did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
Page Six confirmed in July that Grande, 30, and Gomez, 28, had separated, with a source telling us at the time, “They came to the decision together. They were having problems before January, but they want to remain best friends.”
However, days later, her romance with her “Wicked” co-star Ethan Slater was revealed, and he filed for divorce from his wife, Lilly Jay — with whom he shares a 1-year-old son — almost immediately.
Grande’s separation news came after she was spotted without her wedding ring while attending the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London.
Page Six later reported that Gomez had visited the “Thank U, Next,” singer across the pond on the set of the “Wicked” movie in January in a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage, but “it didn’t work out.”
“They’ve been really good friends throughout the entire process, and their friends and families have been trying to protect them,” a source shared.
The pair — who were first romantically linked in early 2020 during the pandemic — reportedly hit turbulence in their relationship when COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and the luxury real estate agent was “taken aback” by Grande’s demanding schedule.
Sources previously told TMZ that “differences” in the couple’s lifestyles led to them growing apart, and things became all the more difficult when Grande went to London to film “Wicked.”
The “Save Your Tears” vocalist’s fame also took a toll on their marriage, as Gomez reportedly could not handle the constant paparazzi attention. He has been dating other people for months, according to the outlet.
The last time Grande was spotted sporting her wedding ring in public was in April when she attended Jeff Goldblum’s concert in London.
A divorce attorney previously told Page Six that the duo’s prenup “almost certainly protects all assets and income that either of them had prior to the marriage.” There will also most likely be a very “limited” division of assets because their union was brief.
While Grande has a reported net worth of $240 million, Gomez was well-off prior to tying the knot with her due to his successful career as a high-end real estate broker.
The “Victorious” alum had initially kept their relationship private, but she took their love public in May 2020 when he appeared in her “Stuck With U” music video alongside Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber.
