Demi Lovato is opening up about the breakdown of her whirlwind three-month engagement to soap opera actor Max Ehrich in the latest episode of her YouTube documentary, Dancing with the Devil.
Lovato and Ehrich first got together at the beginning of the pandemic and immediately began quarantining together. All that time in isolation quickly accelerated their relationship and, by July, the pair were engaged. But by September, they'd already called off the engagement with sources claiming that Lovato had discovered “Max's intentions weren't genuine...He got wrapped up in [Hollywood].” A feeling that was only further confirmed for her after fans resurfaced an old social media comment he left for Selena Gomez that said “MARRY ME NOW,” and another one to Ariana Grande calling her “my wife.”
In footage filmed a few days after the breakup, a composed Lovato explains, “So my life has kind of flipped upside down. I’m no longer engaged. I’m really sad that things ended the way that they did. Good news is, I haven’t picked up any hard drugs or anything like that. I’m hanging in there. Ugh. It’s just shitty.” Later that night, however, she returned to the camera in a much more emotional state, saying, “The video I made earlier wasn't an accurate representation of what I'm going through. I thought this whole time that I didn’t miss him, I just miss the person that I started quarantining with. I don’t know how to give my heart to someone after this.”
