TMZ reported this morning that the man Ariana Grande was seen making out with around Valentine’s Day is actually Los Angeles real estate agent Dalton Gomez, and he has been her new boyfriend for “several months,” according to the outlet’s Grande sources. The two are now quarantining together, and he has appeared on her Instagram Story, TMZ pointed out.
She has not confirmed their relationship or commented on it at this point. Gomez has made his Instagram private since, but Gomez does follow him.
Several of her friends, including Alfredo Flores, Scott Nicholson, and Courtney Chipolone, do too. So who is Gomez? Here, all you need to know.
Gomez works for Aaron Kirman Group as a luxury home realtor.
According to his bio on the site, Gomez was raised in southern California and has been working in the luxury real estate market for five years. He works with A-list buyers and has sold multi-million dollar homes.
TMZ points out he has other celebrity friends. He shared an Instagram Story of himself hanging out with Miley Cyrus in July 2017:
Gomez and Grande are quarantining together and have been secretly dating for weeks.
Gomez has appeared on Grande’s social media, hanging on her couch and petting her dog. TMZ’s Grande sources told the outlet that the two have “been seeing each other for several months now.”
In February, footage came out of Grande making out with him at Bar Louie in Northridge, California. She arrived with him and her friends at 1 A.M. and stayed for about 30 minutes. Grande just had water there, TMZ reported at the time, while her friends drank. The guy she kissed “wasn’t instantly recognizable.”
Grande was last linked romantically to Social House’s Mikey Foster. But multiple sources confirmed to ELLE in September that actually, Grande had been single. Grande and Gomez’s relationship is her first remotely public one since her engagement to Pete Davidson ended in October 2018.
Fans noted Gomez helped Grande find her current house in Los Angeles.
Sleuth fans noticed Grande follows both Gomez and his tattoo artist brother Dakota. One pointed out that Gomez and Aaron Kirman had the listing for the property she purchased. He also commented “This gurl cute” on her Instagram Live this week, the fan pointed out, to which Grande responded “I feel blessed.”
Gomez is trying to keep private at this point, as news broke that he and Grande are allegedly dating.
The real estate agent and his family have gone private on Instagram. And while Grande has given little hints of the two having a connection, she has not posted about their dating at all on their social media. Time will tell whether they eventually become more public or whether this is a relationship Grande truly tries to keep out of the limelight.
