Ariana Grande and boyfriend Ethan Slater were spotted getting touchy-feeling during an intimate date night in New York City.
The “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” singer and the “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical” star dined at the MO Lounge inside the luxe Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and photos obtained by TMZ show the couple gazing at each other over glasses of wine and noshes.
An eyewitness told the outlet that Grande, who stars alongside slater in the upcoming theatrical adaptation of “Wicked,” moved from sitting across from Slater to being positioned right next to him.
The spy said Grande, 30, continuously whispered sweet nothings in her beau’s ear and would plant kisses.
Grande and Slater, 31, holed up at the lounge for about two hours before calling it a night.
Although the couple appeared to try to keep their romance out of the public eye, it seems they’re more willing to be seen out and about now that the “7 Rings” singer has finalized her divorce from real estate agent Dalton Gomez.
She and Gomez settled the split without any fanfare as they had an ironclad prenuptial agreement in place prior to tying the knot.
“Ariana and Dalton really wanted to take care of each through all of this and make it as easy on one another as possible — which is why they really took their time with everything,” an insider told us of the amicable settlement.
“They have a strong mutual respect for each other.”
Slater, meanwhile, is going through a divorce of his own with estranged wife Lily Jay.
The two share one child together, a young son.
A source previously told us that the stage actor is “determined to have a major presence in the boy’s life” as a co-parent.
When news of Slater’s budding romance with Grande first broke earlier this year, Jay told us the “Side to Side” singer is “not a girl’s girl” and called her family “collateral damage.”
