No, Ariana Grande Is Not Dating SpongeBob SquarePants

There’s been some confusion over Ariana Grande’s romantic life, so let’s clear it up right now: Ariana is NOT dating SpongeBob SquarePants.

It was reported last week that Ariana is dating Ethan Slater. He’s her co-star in the upcoming movie version of “Wicked”, and he also played SpongeBob on BROADWAY. He’s 31 years old.

But some people got it twisted and confused him with Tom Kenny, the guy who’s been the voice of the CARTOON SpongeBob for more than 20 years. He’s 61 years old, and he’s been married for 27 years.

Tom’s wife Jill Talley felt the need to post that her husband is NOT dating Ariana. She added, quote, “I don’t know if Ethan Slater is or isn’t dating Ariana Grande. However, they’re both adorable and I totally ship it.”
