Ariana Grande and her former spouse, Dalton Gomez, have officially concluded their divorce proceedings, but this resolution has come at a significant cost for the renowned pop sensation.
Page Six has confirmed that Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez have finalized their divorce. Their divorce request was submitted the previous month, and an exclusive source informed Page Six about the harmonious agreement, stating, “Ariana and Dalton were genuinely committed to supporting each other through this process, aiming to make it as smooth as possible. That’s why they took their time with all the details.
According to TMZ, Dalton will receive a tax-free sum of $1.25 million (equivalent to nearly $2 million in Australian dollars). He will receive this payment upfront and will not be entitled to ongoing spousal support. Additionally, Dalton will be entitled to half of the net proceeds from the sale of their Los Angeles residence, and Ariana will cover up to $25,000 of his legal fees.
Although the divorce filing specified February 20 as the date of separation, the formal divorce request was only made last month. A source emphasized, “They hold a deep mutual respect for one another.”As per Page Six, court documents indicate that the settlement was submitted on Friday. Sources informed Page Six that Ariana Grande opted for an upfront payment to Dalton rather than monthly spousal support, which was a more favorable financial arrangement for her ex-husband.
The agreement, filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, reportedly includes a provision for 28-year-old Gomez, a successful real estate agent, to continue receiving 24-hour security, as Ariana Grande wished to ensure her former spouse’s safety and privacy after their separation.
Previously, Page Six had reported that the 30-year-old pop singer requested in her filing on September 18 in Los Angeles that the prenuptial agreement between the estranged couple be upheld. The specific details of this contract were not disclosed.
Grande had also asked that any communal property from the marriage be divided as stipulated in the prenuptial agreement. TMZ was the first to break this news, noting that only a judge’s approval is now pending.
Ariana Grande was represented by celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, who cited “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for the divorce. An insider had previously remarked, “They arrived at this decision together. While they faced difficulties prior to January, they still want to remain best friends.
Subsequently, the “Thank U, Next” singer has moved on and is now dating her co-star from “Wicked,” Ethan Slater. TMZ was the initial source to report the settlement between Grande and Gomez.
