Who is Frankie Grande dating? He was in a throuple in 2018 but has since moved on.

Yes, that's right — the rumors of the throuple were true. Back in late November of 2018, Frankie went public announcing his two boyfriends. 

The married couple, Mike Pophis and Daniel Sinasohn, who are a lawyer and doctor, respectively, started dating Frankie in the summer of 2018.

Upon his announcement, he told Us Weekly. "[We’ve been dating for] almost three months, but in the gay world, it’s like five years.”

“I’m the new addition," he joked.

He didn't go into too much detail about how their relationship worked, given that Mike and Daniel were married before introducing Grande into the mix. But at the time, it seemed like the relationship was working well for Frankie.

“Mike and Daniel are both extraordinary people and I think the world of them," Frankie told Us Weekly. "Each of them complete me in different ways and I am honored to be in this very special, very fun relationship.”

The group was first spotted together at a Halloween party in NYC on Oct. 31, but Frankie was also very public about the relationship on his Instagram, posting photos of the group. Since, though, the photos have been deleted.

Frankie and his boyfriends broke it off in January of 2019, but the group split on good terms.

“I’m super grateful for my last relationship. I grew so much in it, and at the same time, it wasn’t working out anymore,” he told Us Weekly. “I’m super glad that we decided to end things amicably. And that we can all remain friends … that’s the important thing.”

Frankie is now dating Hale Leon.

Not too long after his split with Mike and Daniel, Frankie started dating Hale, who's an actor. Frankie announced his new beau on Instagram, posting a photo of the two of them kissing with the caption "Sharing this [kiss] with my boyfriend at #coachella after my sister's triumphant set under the #lgbt flag is a moment i will cherish forever..."

Since Coachella, the two seem to be going strong, frequently posting photos together. 

Frankie gushed to Life & Style about his boyfriend, saying "He’s perfect for me because it’s not work. Like I’ve never been in a relationship that requires so little effort and it’s just so beautiful and he’s so supportive and he’s so kind. And um, you know, we, we vibe together. We’re sober together, now we’re vegan together.”

According to the outlet, Ariana is also super supportive of her brother, going on double dates with the pair.

"He's perfect... He’s the one," Frankie said. Sounds like we could have a happily ever after here soon.
