People are flocking to social media in support of Ariana Grande after she reached an agreement in her divorce with Dalton Gomez.
The 30-year-old singer and 28-year-old luxury real estate agent first got together in 2020 and became engaged not long after around Christmas, before tying the knot in May 2021 in an intimate ceremony held at Grande's Montecito home.
The divorce - reportedly filed just last month - has since been settled, according to TMZ sources.
Despite publicly speaking out to say she wasn't 'getting a divorce' after being spotted without her wedding ring while filming a make-up tutorial in August, Grande reportedly split with Gomez earlier this year, not long after they celebrated two years of marriage in May, a source told PEOPLE magazine.
There was a prenup and Gomez is set to receive a tax-free upfront payout of $1,250,000 from Grande, as per TMZ, and he subsequently won't receive spousal support.
Grande and Gomez's Los Angeles home is also set to be sold, the money from the sale to be split 50/50 between the pair.
Gomez is also set to receive up to $25,000 from Grande to cover his attorney fees.
A source close to the former couple told TMZ: "There is still a strong mutual love and respect between Ariana and Dalton and they wanted to make sure everything was done right in lockstep with one another."
Fans of the 'Side to Side' singer are flocking to X - formerly known as Twitter - in support of the star and how she's handling the separation.
One user said: "It's a relief to see celebrities like Ariana Grande prioritize a fair and respectful divorce settlement. Their approach sets a positive example for others going through similar situations.
"Ariana Grande's amicable divorce settlement with Dalton Gomez demonstrates maturity and fairness. It's good to see them part ways with mutual respect."
"Divorce settlements can be complex, but Ariana Grande's willingness to provide a substantial settlement to Dalton Gomez, including covering his attorney fees, highlights her commitment to a peaceful resolution," another added.
A third commented: "Well that chapter is closed and I think we should all move on."
And a fourth resolved: "I hope they’re both doing okay. at the end of the day we have to respect their decision. wishing dalton nothing but the best."
Tyla has contacted Ariana Grande's representative for comment.
