Ethan Slater's estranged wife Lilly Jay is breaking her silence, and says she was blindsided by her husband hunching his Wicked co-star Ariana Grande.
The musician also spoke out against the SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical star’s budding romance with his Wicked co-star Ariana Grande. “[Ariana’s] the story really. Not a girl’s girl,” Jay told Page Six. “My family is just collateral damage.”
Slater and Jay celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary in November 2022, and share a one-year-old son together. Both TMZ and People previously reported that he and Grande started dating after both of their previous relationships were over; the “Thank U, Next” singer reportedly called it quits with husband Dalton Gomez in January, though they have yet to announce their split.
“The story is her and Dalton,” Jay added to Page Six.
Grande plays Glinda opposite Cynthia Erivo’s Elphaba in Jon M. Chu’s upcoming live-action film adaptation of the Broadway show Wicked, which will be split into two parts. In the film, Slater is playing Boq, a munchkin boy who, fittingly, has a crush on Glinda.
Just when I had finally gotten over Ariana licking donuts, now she's out here licking on other people's husband.
