Demi Lovato and her very short-term beau, Max Ehrich, are calling it quits after being engaged for only two months. The pair had been dating for a mere four months before they decided to get engaged, earlier in July.
A source told People that the pair’s decision to split was difficult, “but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers.” Why does the “Heart Attack” singer suddenly feel like she needs to part ways with the man she’s swooning over on her recent Instagram post? Let’s find out:
In case you haven’t already noticed, fans have recently been accusing Max of being a “clout chaser”; Screenshots with old comments show that the actor’s favourite pastime was leaving flirty comments on the posts of Hollywood’s stunners, such as Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Gigi Hadid.
Following these accusations, Lovatians took to social media to warn Demi that her then husband-to-be was bad news! Now, it seems that the 28-year-old singer is also agreeing with her fans after realising that the 29-year-old actor was possibly marrying her for the wrong reasons. According to E News, a source stated that Demi felt “he proposed to get attention.”
Another insider speaking with Us Weekly elaborated on this issue and gave a better idea on exactly what went down with this couple:
“In the beginning, Max was super careful about self-promotion [and] things with his career, but once they got engaged, he really hit the gas pedal and wanted to make the most out of his career opportunities,” said the insider while explaining how his behaviour was becoming opportunistic. “He felt more comfortable doing so after they were engaged and had a little bit more of a leg up.”
The source also added, “[Demi] has been seeing how much Max’s fame increased since being with her and it left a bad taste in her mouth.” How controversial, and how embarrassing for Max!!!
Additionally, “The Young and the Restless” actor was working on a film in Atlanta while Demi stayed back in Los Angeles – we’re wondering if distance also took a toll on their relationship?
A source told E News that their relationship had started going downhill just before Max traveled to Atlanta. “They were arguing a lot and Demi didn’t want him to go without her,” reveals the source. Yikes! Definitely sounds like there was trouble in paradise for these two.
And that’s not all, the source also claimed that the singer realised that “she didn’t know who Max truly was and didn’t think he had good intentions.”
From being “ecstatic to start a family and life” together, to thirsty comments on Twitter, to going “separate ways to focus on their respective careers“, this couple’s relationship has been a crazy roller coaster ride – and all this just within 6 months!
We hope that this roller coaster is now finally parking itself somewhere more stable, and wish them both a happy future!
