Who is Ethan Slater? Meet Ariana Grande’s boyfriend after Dalton Gomez split
Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater were spotted filming “Wicked” scenes together nearly two months before Page Six confirmed they were dating.
Page Six obtained several videos taken of the duo both rehearsing their scenes together, acting with the cameras rolling and chatting off-camera on May 31.
In one video, the “7 Rings” singer and the “SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!” star — who play characters Glinda and Boq, respectively — were seen dressed in their full costumes as they talked with two of the film’s crew members.
A stylist brushed Grande’s hair as the group of four huddled close to one another. Slater seemed to mainly only talk to the songstress.
Another video showed the couple acting in a scene where they appear to meet in a crowded open area.
After the 30-year-old pop star hugged a man and woman goodbye, Slater, 31, slowly got closer to Grande before approaching her and briefly speaking with her.
The conversation between the two characters seemed to go well and Grande put her left hand on his left arm before walking away.
In a third video, the “Save Your Tears” singer and Slater were photographed rehearsing the aforementioned scene in front of the movie’s director, Jon M. Chu.
Chu watched from behind Grande as she and Slater repeatedly practiced the scene. Each time, the “Victorious” alum appeared to adjust which hand she placed on her co-star’s left arm.
Both Chu and Grande seemed to settle on using her left hand for the scene. Afterward, she and Slater continued chatting with one another.
The “Positions” songstress and Tony-nominated performer had another cheeky moment when they walked outside the set in the rain.
Grande walked alongside co-star Cynthia Erivo, who was dressed in costume as Elphaba, as Slater walked ahead next to actor Bowen Yang.
At one point, Grande and the “Harriet” star, 36, decided to run into Slater and Yang, 32, who both looked pleasantly surprised.
The Nickelodeon alum began seeing Slater after spending time together while filming the highly anticipated movie in London over the last few months.
Just days before their off-screen romance made headlines, Page Six confirmed that Grande was divorcing her husband, Dalton Gomez, after two years of marriage.

An insider told Page Six that the estranged couple — who secretly wed in May 2021 — have been separated since January but have remained friends.
“They came to the decision together,” one source spilled. “They were having problems before January, but they want to remain best friends.”
Another source told us that Gomez, 27, attempted to save their marriage by flying to London to visit Grande in January, but “it didn’t work out.”
The luxury real estate agent was allegedly “devastated” by the breakup, but sources told TMZ that he’s also moved on and has been dating other people for “months.”
Meanwhile, we’re told that Slater is currently separated from his wife, Lilly Jay, whom he wed in 2018. The two also welcomed a son together last year.
