It’s been reported that Demi Lovato and fiancé Max Ehrich have canceled their engagement and that they’ve so-calling br-oken up.
“It was a to-ugh decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” a source told PEOPLE.
Demi had announced the two were engaged in an Instagram post back in July, addressing Max by writing, “I knew I loved you the moment I met you.”
It looks like things between Demi and Max dr*stically changed in the last two months. Some people are spec*lating the br*akup has to do with Max’s old fl!rty tweets and sent!ments about Selena Gomez, a person with whom Demi has had a tum*ltuous relationship throughout the years.
Demi cla!med Max’s adoring tweets were fa-ke, but fans aren’t so sure.
What were Max Ehrich’s tweets?
It’s difficult to confirm since Max has since deleted his Twitter account, but via screengr-abs, the tweets (from 2018, although one looks like it’s more recent) say he wants to marry Selena Gomez. “I’m going to marry at SelenaGomez,” one reads. Another is a retweet, with Max reacting with heart-eyes and a laughing emoji to a tweet that shows a photo of Selena and says “Your wife.”
And another is Max replying to professional boxer Ryan Garcia’s tweet about marrying Selena, with Max writing, “You’d have to f!ght me first.” Not only are there tweets, but there’s an Instagram Live, in which Max basically gushes about Selena for about a minute-and-a-half, telling his audience how much he respects Selena, and how he’s had a cr-ush on her for a while. Cr!nge!
Uh oh does that mean she can see all your tweets about being in love with Selena Gomez??? 👀 pic.twitter.com/Bl4yR01AKD

“I think she’s an extremely, extremely, extremely talented girl, and I’ve actually had a major cru-sh on her since 2010. And I — my teenage self, like, said it in an interview as well, so it’s kind of been this ongoing thing, but then like obviously I put it out on Twitter, and I didn’t even realize that would catch like — that people would take, that, like, seriously.”
You can literally see here he’s said the exact same thing as he did to every other celebrity and demi was the only one to let him in her life. Max is using demi to boot his career and it’s worked. i really do feel sick pic.twitter.com/Yn49Ovlr2r

He added, “What she stands for, charity-wise, just being an ac-tivist, she just has a great heart. Her heart is in the right place. She loves Jesus. She loves God. She’s just like, she’s an angel, and I love her, but on top of that, I respect her musically and I want to make music with her. Okay? I want to make a song with her and put out a song.”

While some fans are brushing this off as a “childhood cru-sh,” many are d!sturbed by the fact that Selena isn’t the first female celeb whom Max has gushed over publicly. Some of the comments seem to be extremely recent — as in, a couple of months before proposing to Demi. “max Ehrich is a cr*ep that has tried to get famous women’s attention for years (especially Selena Gomez) he is a clo-ut ch-aser and was even commenting on many other women’s posts a few days before he got with his fiancé, Demi Lovato,” one person tweeted, sharing some screengr*bs of Max’s so-called comments.

Another Twitter user points out Max tried the same thing with Madison Beer. In response to all of this, Demi posted a long response on her Stories, writing: “It’s really sad when people FA-KE images to put women aga!nst each other.If women have a confl!ct that’s between them NOT YOU.
Secondly, don’t y’all have more important sh*t to write about in 2020??? I challenge any tablo!d that dares to type my name to mention Breonna Taylor and the fact that her murderers still haven’t been arr*sted. WRITE ABOUT THAT.
But then I stop and think…it’s hella r*de but da-mn. I get it. And I don’t wanna look at what’s really happening in the world either but WE HAVE TO,” Demi continued, pi*oting the conversation more towards social justice versus her personal life and relationship with Max.
Since the report of Demi and Max bre*king up, Demi hasn’t posted anything about Max. Seven hours ago, she promoted her partnership with virtual therapy company Talkspace. Ultimately, if the bre*kup is true, we hope Demi is taking care of herself.
