Ariana Grande to pay ex-husband $1.25m in divorce settlement

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

Finalizing the separation between the 30-year-old pop artist and the 28-year-old real estate broker, a Los Angeles Superior Court ruling was made on Tuesday.

Ariana Grande will give Mr. Gomez a one-time payment of $1.25 million (£980,000) as part of their settlement. Granted irreconcilable differences, Grande filed for divorce half a year ago.

Shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple started dating in January 2020. In May 2021, they were married in a “tiny and intimate” ceremony at her Montecito, California, home.

Apart from the initial payment, Mr. Gomez will receive half of the profits from the sale of their Los Angeles residence as part of the settlement.

Ariana Grande will also pay up to $25,000 towards his lawyers’ fees, and no future alimony.

According to court papers, the two separated more than a year ago and had a prenuptial agreement in place. There were also no legal disputes, and they had no children, allowing the divorce to be finalised quickly.

Mr. Gomez, who was raised in southern California, has been working in the luxury real estate market for a decade, according to his profile on the AKG website.

He and Grande were first spotted kissing in February 2020 at a restaurant in Los Angeles.

In May of that year, they made their first public appearance together as a couple in the lockdown music video for Grande and Justin Bieber’s collaboration, Stuck With U.
