Ariana Grande Photographed With Her Arm Around Ethan Slater 3 WEEKS Before Dating News Broke!

There seems to be finally photo evidence of Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater’s controversial romance!

Three weeks before the world was rocked with the news of their relationship, the pair were caught getting cozy together during a weekend getaway for her 30th birthday. According to pictures taken on June 27 and obtained by on Friday, the singer could be seen with her arm wrapped around Ethan while walking outside at the exclusive private members club Soho Farmhouse in the UK. The 31-year-old Broadway star also had his arm around her lower back.

It wasn’t totally a romantic stroll, though. A friend joined the walk around the establishment. But Ethan and Ariana definitely looked coupled up — and not just then.

During the weekend trip, one eyewitness claimed they saw the duo eating breakfast together at the Soho Farmhouse’s restaurant the morning after the hitmaker’s birthday. However, there seemingly wasn’t any PDA between them at the time. The insider said:

“Ariana was sitting next to Ethan and [they were with] another woman, who looked like an assistant or a PA, and another guy. They were eating breakfast – and they wanted to take a picture of a poached egg that got dropped on the floor by a waitress as she was bringing it over to them. Ariana said it looked cute.”

Of course, some may have seen them and thought this was nothing more than co-stars on a short break to celebrate a huge milestone for Ariana. But as we all know by now, weeks later, it was revealed the Victorious alum had been separated from her husband Dalton Gomez for some time, possibly since January — and had, by multiple accounts, already moved on with Ethan. You know, her married co-star in Wicked

There has been a lot of talk about this new relationship, mainly because the timeline of events is super suspicious! Some sources say Ethan was broken up with his high school sweetheart and baby momma Lilly Jay before he started dating Ariana. However, a lot of evidence has emerged challenging that claim – including one insider for Us Weekly claiming the former Spongebob Squarepants: The Broadway Musical star only broke up with Lilly and told her about the affair right after Ariana’s divorce news dropped this month. Seems like a guy who only ‘fessed up to his infidelity when he knew it was about to be exposed…

Further proof there’s something off with this relationship timeline? Lilly gave a very telling statement to Page Six on Thursday about how Ariana is “not a girl’s girl,” adding:

“My family is just collateral damage.”

That just screams Ethan betrayed Lilly and abandoned their family to be with Ariana. Making the betrayal even worse? Ari reportedly hung out with Ethan, Lilly, and their baby boy “so many times” while the songstress was involved with the actor. She even held the baby! While allegedly going behind momma’s back!

An insider claimed Lilly found out her estranged husband first cheated on her with Ariana back in April. However, while they decided to work on their marriage instead of splitting up, Ethan and Ariana still continued their relationship afterward:

“There was a period when they were all going to try and work on their marriages and put the whole thing behind them. She thought they were happy. But that did not work out [because Ariana and Ethan] kept the affair going despite [that].”

Awful. And now, we seem to at least have more evidence that these two were very close in the weeks before their alleged affair was revealed.

Things are not looking good for the new couple! Reactions to the images, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below.
