Speaking to PEOPLE at the time, an insider claimed that the couple had separated earlier in 2023, while another source also previously claimed to TMZ that Grande and Gomez were “heading for divorce” after a failed attempt to reconcile their long-distance relationship.

Speaking to People at the time, a source claimed that “the couple and both families couldn’t be happier” following the intimate nuptials.
