Ariana Grande is dating her married “Wicked” co-star Ethan Slater, and his wife, Lilly Jay, was “completely blindsided” by the relationship, according to sources familiar with the situation.
“It’s horrible. They were high school sweethearts. They have a baby! She’s a wreck,” a source tells Page Six exclusively.
Slater and Jay have been married since 2018 and celebrated their 10-year anniversary together as a couple last November.
He and Grande have been filming “Wicked” in London for the past year, and sources believe she’s the reason Slater and Jay “suddenly break up now when nothing appeared wrong between them,” the source says.
Slater, 31, even gushed over his “wonderful” wife in May in an Instagram post for Mother’s Day.
“Happy first Mother’s Day to the most loving caring and wonderful mom/person in the world,” he wrote.
The post included a photo of their son’s hands.
Slater has since gone private on the social media app.
