Ariana Grande’s Dating History: A Timeline of Her Exes and Flings (1)

10

Ariana Grande is no stranger to whirlwind romances and devastating breakups.

During her search for The One, Grande thought she came close with Pete Davidson — whom she began dating after her split from late rapper Mac Miller. Us Weekly broke the news of Grande and Davidson’s engagement in June 2018 but the duo called things off four months later.

Everything appeared to change for Grande in February 2020 when she met Dalton Gomez. Us confirmed the pair began their romance the following month.

“He is the type of guy she has been looking for,” a source told Us in August 2020. “He’s very protective of her, will go out of his way for her and does little things that are chivalrous. Dalton will go above and beyond to meet her needs.”

The twosome announced their engagement in December 2020 after nine months of dating. Us confirmed in May 2021 that the couple officially tied the knot in a small ceremony. Two years later, however, Us confirmed in July 2023 that Grande and Gomez separated after two years of marriage as they experience a “rough patch.” Grande filed for divorce two months later, which was finalized in October 2023.

Graham Phillips

The Good Wife alum met Grande — 15 at the time — while they were both starring on Broadway in 13: The Musical. The pair, who wrote a song called “Stick Around,” dated between 2008 to 2011. Despite going their separate ways, the former flames reunited in July 2016 for a dinner with friends from 13.

Jai Brooks

Grande and the The Janoskians star began dating in August 2012 but split in October 2013, with Brooks taking to Twitter to accuse the Disney alum of cheating on him with Nathan Sykes. “Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck," he wrote in a lengthy rant. "Yes I was left for another man.” The "Bang Bang" singer responded to those claims by accusing him of threatening her with retaliation if she chose to not be with him. “Woke up this morning in complete and utter shock …I guess I shouldn't be so surprised. You said to me if I didn't come back to you, you'd make me look bad to the entire world,” she responded on Twitter. “I’m no longer afraid of you or your lies anymore.” Despite their feud, the pair got back together briefly in May 2014 — only to break up for good in August.

Nathan Sykes

Us Weekly exclusively revealed that The Wanted singer and Grande began dating in August 2013 after they released “Almost Is Never Enough” from the soundtrack of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Their relationship was short-lived, however, with the pair breaking up in December of that year. A source told Us at the time that the reason behind their split was because the two “hardly ever saw each other” while another noted, “They just weren’t into it anymore." However, three years later, theygot together once again — to team up on a new version of his song “Over and Over Again.”

Big Sean

Following months of speculation, the “Side by Side” singer confirmed she was dating Big Sean in October 2014, calling him “one of the most amazing men in the whole word.” “It's gotten serious very fast," a source told Us at the time. "They are much happier than in their previous relationships." Meanwhile, Glee star Naya Rivera, who was engaged to the “I Don’t F—k With You” rapper before they split up in April 2014, later alleged in her book, Sorry Not Sorry, that she found Grande at his home while she and Big Sean were still dating. Despite their romance, Grande and the “Bounce Back” rapper ended their relationship eight months later in April 2015. The Sam & Cat alum later mentioned Big Sean in "Thank U, Next," a single Grande released in November 2018 where she showed gratitude for her previous exes: "Thought I'd end up with Sean / But he wasn't a match."

Ricky Alvarez

The backup dancer and Grande were first linked in the summer of 2015 following her split from Big Sean. The pair were also together when the “Love Me Harder” songstress made headlines in July of that year after she was caught on surveillance footage licking a donut in a store and saying she “hates Americans” and “hates America.” Although Grande told Billboard magazine in May 2016, “I’m a very happy girl,” the pair split two months later. However, they seemingly remain on good terms. Following the release of "Thank U, Next," Alvarez posted a clip of himself listening to the song and Grande jokingly responded, "IM SORRY U GOT THE WORST LINE ... IT WAS MEANT V LOVINGLY," referencing her lyrics, “Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh.”

Mac Miller

The “Breathin’” singer and the “Dang!” rapper — who met after they collaborated on “The Way” — dated from 2016 to 2018. Us Weekly confirmed in May 2018 that the pair had broken up. A few days later, Grande opened up about their split on Instagram alongside a photo of the former flames cuddling, which she captioned, “I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!” Miller shared his perspective in July. "I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on,” he told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe. “And it’s that simple.” Following the September 2018 death of the “Programs” rapper due to mixed drug toxicity, Grande wrote a touching tribute to him on Instagram: “I adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will.” Grande also paid tribute to her ex in her song, “Thank U, Next,” singing, “Wish I could say, ‘Thank You’ to Malcom / ‘Cause he was an angel.”

Pete Davidson

The Saturday Night Live star and Grande embarked on a whirlwind romance in 2018 following their respective splits from Cazzie David and Miller. Davidson announced on Instagram in May 2018 that they were dating, sharing a photo of the couple posing in Harry Potter outfits, which he captioned, “The chamber of secrets has been opened.” Us Weekly exclusively revealed that the comedian and Grande had gotten engaged a month later, with Davidson proposing with a $93,000 diamond ring. He later told Jimmy Fallon of their plans to wed, “I feel like I won a contest, so sick. It’s f—king lit.” The pair spent the summer flaunting their romance, which included adopting a pig and moving in together in a luxury condo in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. However, Us Weekly confirmed in October 2018 that they had broken up, with a source telling Us at the time, “They realized it happened too quick and too early.” Davidson spoke out about their split during Saturday Night Live’s "Weekend Update" segment on November 3. “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s OK,” he told viewers. “She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.” Grande, for her part, sang that she was "so thankful" for Davidson in "Thank U, Next."

Mikey Foster

Grande and the Social House member, who opened her Sweetener world tour, caught the attention of fans in early August 2019 when they made out in their collaborative “Boyfriend” music video. Shortly after, they spent two consecutive nights hanging out with friends at Siena Tavern in Chicago. “Ariana and Mikey were holding hands at one point while they were there,” a source told Us exclusively of the August 5 outing.

Dalton Gomez

The singer sparked relationship rumors with the real estate agent in February 2020 after they were spotted kissing during a night out with friends. An insider told Us that the pair met when he was hired to help her find a house to buy before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. She didn't confirm their romance until May, when the pair slow danced in Grande and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U" music video.

"He is the type of guy she has been looking for," a source exclusively told Us in August. "He's very protective of her, will go out of his way for her and does little things that are chivalrous. Dalton will go above and beyond to meet her needs."

The singer announced their engagement in December 2020, showing off her diamond and pearl engagement ring on Instagram and captioning it, "Forever n then some."

"Ariana is beyond excited," a source told Us. "She has really enjoyed getting to know and falling in love with Dalton out of the spotlight, something she didn't get to do in her past relationships. They are so in love and committed to spend the rest of their lives together."

Usconfirmed that the pair tied the knot in May 2021. "It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people," her rep told Us. "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier."

Us confirmed in July 2023 that Gomez and Grande “separated” after two years of marriage. A source exclusively told Us at the time that the estranged couple had “been having some issues for months now” and initially split in January 2023. In September 2023, Grande officially filed for divorce. Us confirmed the pair had finalized the legal paperwork one month later.

Ethan Slater

Us confirmed in July 2023 that Grande is dating her Wicked costar after growing close on the London-based set. “Ariana and Ethan have only recently begun seeing each other but they have a lot of fun together and are enjoying each other’s company,” the insider told Us at the time, claiming Grande and Slater were both separated from their respective spouses before their relationship turned romantic. (Slater celebrated four years of marriage with wife Lilly Jay in November 2022.)
