Ariana Grande seems to have quickly moved on from her estranged husband Dalton Gomez, as she is now dating her co-star Ethan Slater from the musical “Wicked,” according to multiple sources confirmed by TheFantasyTimes.
TMZ, who broke the news, stated that Grande and Slater started dating several months ago after meeting on the set of the movie.
A photo from March showed Grande and Slater sitting close to each other, with his arm wrapped around her, while celebrating Michelle Yeoh’s Oscar win in London.
