As an adorable superstar, Ariana Grande doesn’t have any trouble finding a significant other to engage in romantic moments when she has some spare time in her perpetually business schedule. When it comes to the list of her lovers and suitors, Ari has been with a few gentlemen that you may have seen in concert, watched on television, or bought a ticket to a movie theater and watched perform.
Most recently, she has been booed up with a young man that isn’t as famous as many of her ex-boyfriends, but he is certainly getting celebrated by Ariana for the way that he has caught her undivided attention. Let’s take a look at who Ariana Grande is currently dating, and a few of the men from her dating history.
Dalton Gomez (2020-Present)
Ariana Grande is currently dating real estate agent Dalton Gomez. Grande fans became aware that the pair were linked up together earlier in 2020 after fans after seeing that he became a regular fixture in the background of her social media selfies, Tweets, and Instagram stories.
Dalton Gomez was featured in the music video for Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s song ‘Stuck With U’ which features romantic couples in lockdown kissing and dancing, including Grande and Gomez dancing together in a bedroom and kissing.
Gomez also assisted Ariana in a promo for her song ‘Rain on Me’ with Lady Gaga by standing on a chair as he lifted up a running shower for Ari, making it look like it was raining indoors. These releases are in addition to her massive success on recent albums “Thank U, Next” and “Sweetener.”
According to Dalton Gomez‘s business website, her new boyfriend is from Southern California and has worked for Aaron Kirman Group based in Beverly Hills, California.
Pete Davidson (2018)
In 2018, Ariana Grande and SNL-Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson were consistently the couple hugged up in the headlines. Both of them had been on the outs of long-term public relationships. The pop star had broken up with rapper Mac Miller and Davidson, who was out of his relationship with Cazzie David, the daughter of the extremely wealthy comedian Larry David.
After being encouraged by her agent Scooter Braun, Ariana’s relationship with Pete went public in May that year.
Davidson seemed really into Ari, getting numerous tattoos dedicated to her, along with moving in together that June, with their engagement, soon announced that same month. Towards the end of that month on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Unfortunately, four months later in October, Pete and Ariana were done, a month after Miller passed away to make matters worse. In fact, during a radio interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Pete Davidson spoke about how Mac Miller’s passing was a clear sign to him that his relationship with Ariana Grande was going to be over.
“I totally got it…I was like, listen, I get it, do whatever you gotta do, I’ll be here. I think I said, I’ll be here until you don’t want me to be here. I pretty much knew it was about over after that…All I do know is that she really loved the s**t out of him and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything.”
Those couples’ tattoos were also put to an end too. Pete Davidson told viewers on Saturday Night Live that he knew they were curious about their break-up, but that ultimately, it was none of their business. He stated:
“Sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay. She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”
Ariana Grande even named a song after him.
Mac Miller (2016-2018)
Arguably the most stand-out relationship that Ariana Grande fans will always remember is when Grande was in her relationship with late rapper Mac Miller, who she made music with multiple times over and dated for practically two years until 2018.
Mac and Ari were so close that they even remained friends and continued to support one another after they broke up. Mac Miller was friendly enough with her still that he wished Grande all the best on her engagement to Pete Davidson.
Tragedy struck when Mac Miller passed away on September 7, 2018, at the age of 26, with his death totally devastating Ariana Grande. She spoke about their relationship during her Coachella performance:
“I never thought I’d even go to Coachella. I was always a person who never went to festivals and never went out and had fun like that. But the first time I went was to see Malcolm perform, and it was such an incredible experience. I went the second year as well, and I associate…heavily…it was just kind of a mindf**k, processing how much has happened in such a brief period.”
The major music producer Jon Brion, who worked on Mac Miller’s posthumous album Circles, informed the New York Times that Ariana Grande contributed vocals to a song on the album called ‘I Can See.’
Ricky Alvarez (2015-2016)
The Mexican dancer Ricky Álvarez began Ariana in June 2015 when they were on a tour together because Ricky was one of Ariana’s backup dancers. They separated in July 2016, lasting nearly a year. Ricky Alvarez’s name rang a few bells because of his involvement in Grande’s highly talked about #donutgate scandal.
Big Sean (2014-2015)
In the month of July 2014, Grande started dating rapper Big Sean for almost a year before separating on April 8, 2015. Her relationship with rapper Big Sean appeared to be under a constant microscope by fans and the media at large, especially when they made their red-carpet entrance at the 2015 Grammys.
This past tense couple also had their photos taken while they were snuggled up outside of a Los Angeles recording studio.
Nathan Sykes (2013)
It was reported that the singer from The Wanted – Nathan Sykes – dated Ariana Grande from August 2013 to December 2013, with the temporary couple also working on one of the songs for Ariana’s album Almost Is Never Enough.
Jai Brooks (2012-2013); (2013-2014)
The Australian musician Jai Brooks actually met Ariana on the popular social media platform Twitter, and before you know it, they were a thing, beginning to date each other in August 2012.
Believe it or not, Ariana was actually older than him. But that didn’t stop the couple from falling apart and going their separate ways in August 2013.
Oddly enough it only took one month for the two singles to become a duo again In September 2013. Jai and Ariana back together again at her concert, where Jai was hanging out with Ariana’s brother Frankie. But low and behold, Ari and Jai broke up a second time amicably in July 2014.
Graham Phillips (2008-2011)
Actor Graham Phillips was involved romantically with Grande from 2008 until 2011 when Grande was a teenager. They were together for three years after they initially met during the production of the Broadway musical 13, which was Ariana Grande’s professional Broadway debut.
Ari’s Instagram picture archive showed flicks with Phillips getting dinner together at the Manhattan celebrity magnet called Carbone.
Now with Dalton Gomez as her current boyfriend, Ariana Grande has seemingly moved away from the actors and musicians of the entertainment industry and found a bond with a man with a more conventional occupation such as real estate. When love is in the air, money isn’t the sole purpose of a soulmate.
