Let’s begin with happier times

The romance between Ehrich and Lovato started at the beginning of the pandemic phase in March. Demi and Max were living together in the quarantine and enjoying their lovey-dovey phase. They made things official with Justin Bieber’s “Stuck with U.”

When the popular singer and Grammy Award nominee took to Instagram to announce her engagement with Max Ehrich, fans and media couldn’t help but go ga-ga over the two. The post had a sweet caption where her emotions for Mac flooded. She said that she was fortunate to be a part of something so special.

The way Demi felt with Max was evident when she shared that her father used to call her little partner in a southern accent which made perfect sense to her, and once again things made perfect sense to her with Max.

So then what happened? How did it go downhill?

According to US Weekly, the pair broke up a mere two months after their engagement when the soap opera star moved across the county to work on his new movie, Southern Gospel, leaving Demi behind.

Though it was a tough decision, Max and Demi decided to walk on separate paths and focus on their careers for now. Demi even issued a statement saying that although they respect and love each other, destiny has something else written for both of them. Oh, my heart!

According to resources, the main reason for the breakup was their work. The boost in Max’s career after getting engaged to Demi was what fueled this fallout.  Sources suggest that the sudden spike in Max’s stature had started bothering Demi. Well, we’d be lying if we said that that hadn’t happened with celebs before!

What’s going on since then?

After the breakup, four-time Emmy nominated actor Max Ehrich took leave from his Twitter account, and both decided to go their separate ways. And in an extremely surprising revelation, Max claimed he only discovered about his breakup after the news broke out in the press. Ouch!

On the other hand, sources claim that Lovato said it was heartbreaking to know that her partner didn’t have genuine intentions.

Hmm, it’s crystal clear what happened there isn’t it?
