Ariana Grande is said to be in Los Angeles over the weekend, Ethan, 31-year-old Broadway actor, remains in New York, where he officially filed for divorce on Wednesday.

Ariana Grande's love life has become a topic of interest as she embraces a new relationship with Ethan Slater, her co-star in the movie adaptation of Wicked. 

However, this newfound romance comes on the heels of Ariana's recent separation from husband Dalton Gomez.

As the news of Ariana and Ethan's relationship unfolded, Lilly Jay, Ethan's wife, reportedly found herself blindsided by the situation. 

The couple, who welcomed a baby son together last August, is now in the process of sorting out the details of their divorce.

Sources close to the couple have revealed to TMZ that although Ariana and Ethan are keen to spend time together, there are currently no immediate plans for a meeting. 

DailyMail.com previously disclosed that Ariana had also spent time with Lilly and her son during their visit to Ethan in London while he was filming Wicked.

Insiders from both Ariana and Ethan's camps have emphasized that their romance began after they were separated from their respective spouses, dismissing any notion of infidelity.

Lilly Jay has not been shy about expressing her dissatisfaction with the situation. In a series of interviews, she criticized Ariana, labeling her as "Not a girl's girl" and bemoaning the impact on her family.

She is now focused on rebuilding her life as a single mother, determined to create a bright future for her son.
