Ethan Slater is saying “thank u, next” to his wife, Lilly Jay.
The “SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!” star filed for divorce from his wife in New York Wednesday, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
However, the official reason for the split was unclear.
This most recent development comes nearly a week after his relationship with his “Wicked” co-star Ariana Grande was exposed.
Last week, Page Six confirmed that the actors have been dating for several months after meeting on the set of the forthcoming Jon M. Chu-directed film, which is being shot in London.
A photo of the cast out celebrating Michelle Yeoh’s Oscar win in March showed Slater, 31, with his arm wrapped around the married “7 Rings” singer, 30.
The real estate agent even made a trip to London to save his marriage, but, per a source, “it didn’t work out.”

“They’ve been really good friends throughout the entire process, and their friends and families have been trying to protect them,” the insider added.
Meanwhile, separate sources exclusively told Page Six that Slater’s estranged wife was “blindsided” by his relationship with Grande.
“It’s horrible. They were high school sweethearts. They have a baby! She’s a wreck,” they told us.
The insider added that they believe the “Positions” singer is the reason for Jay and the Broadway star’s split, as they “suddenly break up now when nothing appeared wrong between them.”
Though a source told TMZ that Jay feels like her estranged husband has “completely turned his back on his family” to be with Grande, other sources told Page Six that those claims are “completely untrue.”
