Celebrity couples have been a Gen Z obsession since the early days: Many of us are still hung up on Jelena, and it’s only natural for us to keep tabs on new couples — no matter how weird they can be (Timmy T and Kylie, I’m looking at you). However, while all of us love to see these couples form, it’s always heartbreaking to see them break up. So, with the recent rumors around Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez, it’s safe to say that the internet is not OK.
On July 17, divorce rumors began swirling after Ariana Grande was spotted at the Wimbledon men’s singles final alongside Andrew Garfield and Jonathan Bailey — and without her wedding ring. Gomez and Grande tied the knot back in May 2021, but have kept a relatively low profile since then. However, with Grande filming Wicked in London, fans have been speculating about a breakup between the two. After fans noticed that Grande wasn’t wearing her ring in August 2022, she addressed the concerns in a video saying, “It’s getting clean, I’m not getting a divorce. Before you start, don’t.”
According to TMZ and PEOPLE, sources say Gomez and Grande have been having “problems” and have been separated since January 2023. Her Campus reached out to both Grande and Gomez’s teams for comment, but did not hear back at the time of publication.
While Grande hasn’t come forward about the rumors, she did post a carousel of photos on her Instagram of her weekend at Wimbledon. (And no, her ring isn’t in any of them.) Naturally, fans are freaking TF out about the rumors — seriously, Twitter is a nightmare RN.
Like, the internet doesn’t know what to think about this.
For many Arinators, the rumors are just rumors until Grande confirms them.
Some internet users are using this as a hopeful catalyst for new music, though.
Whether the rumors are true or not, most fans are just wishing for the best for both of them.
