Ariana Grande, a lyrical genius when it comes to all things sex and romance, tied the knot with luxury real estate agent Dalton Gomez during a “tiny and intimate” ceremony with their closest friends and family back in 2021, and the pair have kept their romance low-key and out of the spotlight ever since. The couple first confirmed their relationship in May 2020 in Grande and Justin Bieber’s “Stuck With U” music video, which showed them isolating together at her home in LA. Prior to Gomez, however, Grande dated a variety of different men, from musicians to backup dancers to a YouTube star.
Grande has often pulled inspiration from those relationships to write some of her hit songs. Perhaps most famously, Grande wrote “Thank U, Next” in 2019, shortly after she called off her engagement to Pete Davidson, and she name-dropped four of her famous exes on the track. But she’s also written devastating love songs like “POV,” “Imagine,” and “Moonlight” and very sexy tracks like “34+35,” “Side to Side,” and “Greedy.”
Though Grande isn’t afraid to turn the gushy details of her relationships into hit songs, in more recent years, she’s become very private about the dynamics of her romantic life, rarely speaking about her exes or her husband publicly outside of her music.
Ahead, these are all the guys Grande was linked to before she and Gomez decided to marry.
