Report Reveals Ethan Slater's Wife Feeling "Devastated" As He Allegedly "Abandoned" His Family

The Emotional Struggles Surrounding Ariana Grande's New Relationship by Venus Sanders

Ariana girl, what on earth are you doing?

The romance between Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater may be in full bloom, but the aftermath has left a trail of heartbreak and emotional turmoil for Slater's estranged wife, Lilly Jay. Jay, who shares an 11-month-old son with Slater, is reportedly feeling "betrayed and heartbroken" over her ex's relationship with the pop star.

A source revealed to She's SINGLE that Jay is devastated by the fact that her family has been torn apart, and she feels abandoned by Slater, who has allegedly prioritized his newfound romance over his responsibilities to his family. The insider adds that Jay's greatest concern is that their young son won't have the constant presence of both parents in his life.

According to exclusive sources speaking to Page Six, the claims that Slater abandoned his family are entirely untrue. The situation seems to have blindsided Jay, who had been completely unaware of Slater's romantic involvement with Grande. As a result, she is struggling to cope with the sudden upheaval in her life.

"It's horrible. They were high school sweethearts. They have a baby! She's a wreck," a source shared with Page Six.

Publicly, Slater had not shown any signs of marital trouble as recently as two months ago. He had posted heartfelt messages on social media to celebrate Mother's Day, expressing his love and appreciation for Jay as a mother. In November 2022, he also celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, declaring Jay his best friend and expressing his joy in their journey together.

While Jay is grappling with the reality of Slater's new relationship, a separate source informed TMZ that it's entirely understandable for her emotions to be running high. Witnessing an ex moving on, especially in such a public manner, can be incredibly challenging, and her friends are rallying to support her during this difficult time. Meanwhile, both Grande and Slater are trying to maintain a low profile and be respectful of their exes as they navigate their new relationship.

It's worth noting that Ariana Grande is also going through a separation of her own. She and her estranged husband, Dalton Gomez, are divorcing after two years of marriage. An insider confirmed that they arrived at the decision together and are focused on remaining best friends despite their marital differences.

As the public speculates about the intricacies of these high-profile relationships, it's essential to remember that these individuals are experiencing complex emotions and life changes. Heartbreak and healing are deeply personal journeys that require time and privacy. In the midst of media attention and public scrutiny, empathy and compassion can go a long way in supporting those involved.
