Ethan Slater, best known for his role in SpongeBob SquarePants on Broadway, has recently announced his separation from his wife, Lilly Jay. The couple, who had been dating since 2012, tied the knot in November 2018. This news comes as a surprise to many, as they had welcomed their baby son, Ezra, just a few months ago in August 2022.
While the reason behind the separation remains unknown, rumors have been swirling that Slater has moved on and is now dating his Wicked costar, Ariana Grande. Grande, who recently ended her marriage to Dalton Gomez, has reportedly found solace in Slater’s company. However, none of the representatives for Grande or Slater have commented on the relationship, leaving fans in suspense.
It is worth noting that Slater had previously shared the joyous news of his son’s birth on Instagram, expressing his love for his wife on numerous occasions, including their anniversary and Mother’s Day. The sudden separation has left fans wondering what went wrong in their seemingly blissful relationship.
Adding another layer to the story, both Slater and Grande are set to star in the film adaptation of Wicked. Grande will take on the role of Glinda, while Slater will portray the character Boq. The movie had initially begun production in the U.K. in 2021 and was slated for a November 2024 release. However, with the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, there is uncertainty surrounding its premiere.
As fans eagerly await further updates on Slater and Grande’s alleged relationship, the future of the Wicked film adaptation remains uncertain due to the strike. The McCreary County Record will continue to keep readers informed as more information becomes available.
