Two months after announcing their engagement, Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich have officially called things off.



According to a source close to Demi, “It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers.  They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”


Demi and Max made their relationship public back in March, and Max proposed in Malibu on July 22.  Following the news of their engagement, Demi posted on Instagram, “When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his ‘little partner’ – something that might’ve sounded stranger without his southern cowboy life accent.  To me it made perfect sense.  And today that word makes perfect sense again but today, I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner.”  The couple celebrated their 6-month anniversary earlier this month.

When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his “little partner” – something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent. To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner. @maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you. It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.. I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!! ?? Ps. THANK YOU @angelokritikos FOR HIDING BEHIND ROCKS AND CAPTURING THE ENTIRE THING!!! I love you boo!!!

While on The Morning Mash Up, at the time, Demi explained, “We started dating.  We immediately went into quarantine.  I knew I loved him the night I met him.  So a week later we went into quarantine.  I was like, ‘Look, we’re quarantining together.  Um, cause I love you.'”



It’s a unfortunate and sad situation however, could this be a case of ‘falling too fast?’ Only time will tell.  Wishing the best of luck to both Demi and Max.
