Ariana Grande has had a long history of dating in the public eye. She’s dated a number of stars and never been shy about letting people know who she’s with. Since her split from former fiance, Pete Davidson, Grande has been focusing on herself and making music for her fans. But now, she’s dating again and this time it’s not someone who is accustomed to the spotlight.

Ariana Grande’s dating history

One of Grande’s first public relationships was with singer Jai Brooks. The two dated from Aug. 2012 to October 2013 when Brooks accused Grande of cheating on him with The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes.

“Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck,” he tweeted at the time. “Yes I was left for another man. And this happens everyday to so many people of every age, gender, race. I happen to be one of those people and I’m in a situation where I am constantly reminded of it every day. Like anyone who has been cheated on, it has been tough for me but I’m finally ready to move on.”

After that, Grande did date Sykes but the relationship didn’t last long as they never really saw each other.

Next, Grande moved on to rapper Big Sean. The unlikely pair dated for eight months and she even mentioned him in her song, “Thank U, Next,” singing “Thought I’d end up with Sean / But he wasn’t a match.”

Grande also mentioned her next ex, Ricky Alvarez, in “Thank U Next,” singing “Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh.” The two got together in the summer of 2015 but broke up two months later.

Grande most famously dated Mac Miller from 2016-2018. Miller died in September 2018 and Grande expressed her love for him in an Instagram post.

“I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will,” she wrote. “I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. So many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. For so long. Above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. Rest.”

In May of 2018, before Miller’s passing, Grande and comedian Pete Davidson went public with their relationship. A month later, the two got engaged. But by October the pair had broken up.

Who is Ariana Grande’s new boyfriend?

Grande now has a new boo. She is dating luxury real estate agent, Dalton Gomez. According to People, the two have been dating in secret for about two months. The two were first linked in February when a video of them was obtained by TMZ.

Grande is currently self-quarantining amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and Gomez is with her.

“One of the people she is with right now is Dalton — they have been hanging out for a couple of months,” a source told People. “Ariana doesn’t want to do another public relationship so she is trying to keep this one quiet, but she seems very happy with Dalton.”
