Ariana Grande, Dalton Gomez Finalise Divorce After Three Years

Grande will make a one-time payment of $1.25m to ex-husband Gomez after their marraige was terminated.

After almost three years of marriage, US singer Ariana Grande and actor Dalton Gomez have officially announced their divorce.

The divorce was finalized during a Los Angeles Superior Court ruling made on Tuesday.

Grande filed for divorce six months ago, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple started dating in January 2020, shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic. They were spotted kissing in February 2020 at a restaurant in Los Angeles, and spent quarantine together.

In December of 2020, Grande announced her engagement in an Instagram post, captioning it “Forever n then some”. In May 2021, they were married in an intimate ceremony at Grande’s home in Montecito, California.

Under their settlement, Grande will make a one-time payment of $1.25m (£980,000) to Mr Gomez, but she will not pay any further alimony in the future. However, she will pay up to $25,000 towards his legal bills.

The settlement also awards Mr Gomez half the proceeds from the sale of their Los Angeles home.

The couple had a prenuptial agreement in place when they separated more than a year ago, according to court documents. The divorce was concluded swiftly because they had no children and no legal disputes.
