Pop star and actress Ariana Grande recently finished filming her scenes as Glinda in the upcoming “Wicked” film in the U.K. Amid the end of filming in wake of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, a different announcement from the set was released–that Grande was getting divorced from Dalton Gomez. Luxury real estate broker Gomez and Grande were married for two years, and their relationship ended amid a romance between Grande and “Wicked” costar Ethan Slater.

The relationship was first chocked up to salacious gossip, until Slater’s soon-to-be ex wife Lily Jay offered comment to Page Six. Jay and Slater were high school sweethearts who had been in a relationship for ten years, marrying in 2018. The couple share a child together, born in 2022. Jay stated that “the real story is Ariana and Dalton. She’s not a girl’s girl, my family is just collateral damage.”

The scandal has listeners revisiting several of the singer’s previous high profile relationships, which have long been rumored to begin with infidelity. Now, actress Rikki Valentina is sharing her own story of an ex boyfriend cheating on her with Grande over a decade ago.

The Vault Of Valentina

Amid the social media commentary surrounding Grande’s alleged lack of support for other women and homewrecking  relationships, Valentina first emerged with a vague allegation. She shared a video referencing an ex-boyfriend of the distant past who once appeared on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” alongside Grande.

After the video received viral attention, Valentina offered further details on the situation. In 2010, her ex-boyfriend Christian Fortune booked an appearance on “Victorious” early in his acting career. Fortune was four years her senior, and Valentina confessed to feeling manipulated by him years later. The actress alleges that he cheated on her with Grande, who was dating Graham Phillips at the time. She went on to detail that Grande allegedly sent Fortune flirtatious messages and photos via AIM.

Valentina described her then-boyfriend telling her that he needed to “seem available” to female fans as a young actor, insinuating that he may have never told Grande that he had a girlfriend. After Valentina logged onto Fortune’s Facebook account and found incriminating messages between the pair following their breakup, she messaged Grande to inform her that Fortune was seeing both of them at the same time. In response, Valentina alleges that Grande blocked her.
