Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater got quite cozy during her 30th birthday getaway in late June, three weeks before their relationship was revealed.
The “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” singer can be seen wrapping her arm around her married “Wicked” co-star, 31, while going for a stroll at Soho Farmhouse in the UK in a photo obtained by the Daily Mail Friday.
Slater is also shown reciprocating the PDA by placing his arm around Grande’s lower back.
The couple were joined by another friend for the June 27 outing, which took place one day after the pop star’s milestone birthday.
Reps for Grande and Slater did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment as to whether this is confirmation that they were already dating at this point.
However, TMZ previously reported that the Grammy winner and the Broadway star have been seeing each other for “several months,” so it’s likely they were already romantically linked by the time this photo was snapped.
The co-stars have been shooting their upcoming movie, “Wicked,” in London over the past year.
They were married to their respective partners, Dalton Gomez and Lilly Jay, at the time filming began but have both since separated.
Sources previously told us Grande split from her husband of two years, 27, in January.
They reportedly led different lifestyles and struggled to make their marriage work after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Slater painted a picture of a much happier marriage with Jay on his end.

On Mother’s Day, the “SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!” star gushed over the mother of his now-11-month-old son, writing on social media, “Happy first Mother’s Day to the most loving caring and wonderful mom/person in the world.”
Slater hung out with Grande for her birthday in the newly surfaced photo less than a month after the sweet tribute was posted.
Jay spoke to Page Six exclusively Thursday, telling us that the “7 Rings” singer is “not a girl’s girl.”
“My family is just collateral damage,” the musician added.
A source previously claimed that Jay also felt that Slater had “abandoned” her family, but a separate insider told us those claims about the Tony nominee were “completely untrue.”
Sources have also said that Slater is “determined to have a major presence in [his son’s] life,” adding that the actor “desperately” wants to co-parent.
Slater filed for divorce from Jay on Wednesday. The estranged couple were high school sweethearts and had been together for 10 years.
Neither Grande nor Gomez has filed divorce papers yet.
