Did Demi Lovato Meet Max Ehrich on Instagram? Fans Debate Their ‘Anniversary’

Singer Demi Lovato has been in high-profile relationships with her Camp Rock co-star Joe Jonas and actor Wilmer Valderrama, who she met on the set of a PSA. But the media has yet to figure out how she met her fiance, Max Ehrich. Here’s why some believe they connected on Instagram.

Lovato and Ehrich went public with their relationship in May 2020, making their status official in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s “Stuck with U” music video. From there, they continued to post photos and videos together. Then, on July 22, Ehrich proposed, and Lovato accepted.

“I knew I loved you the moment I met you,” Lovato wrote on social media, announcing their engagement. “It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.” She continued, writing, “I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you.”

Just a couple of weeks later, on August 7, 2020, Ehrich and Lovato went out for their second “date night” as an engaged couple. They went to one of Lovato’s favorite restaurants, Nobu, getting dressed up and posting for the occasion, which they called an anniversary.

Ehrich wrote on a photo of the two kissing, “i love u baby happy anniversary.” Both shared additional shots in their Instagram Stories from their night out, in which they were accompanied by friends Chloe (of the band Chloe and Nash) and beauty YouTuber Nikita Dragun.

How long have Lovato and Ehrich been together?

While the media reported this was their five-month anniversary, that would mean Lovato and Ehrich began dating in early March 2020. However, some think they may have been together for at least a month before that, meaning that they celebrated six months as a couple in August 2020.

In late March 2020, the two flirted on Instagram and hinted at their relationship. A source told E!, “Demi and Max have been seeing each other for a few weeks now,” adding, “they have been quarantining together at Demi’s house and it’s going really well.” From this timeline, it sounds like they started dating in late February or early March.

While both Ehrich and Lovato are in the entertainment industry, there’s no evidence to suggest they met through a project (despite having worked on the Disney Channel around the same time). And, according to a fan on Instagram, they didn’t meet through a dating app or a friend, but on the social media platform itself.

“it was literally a stan that brought max to demis attention,” wrote the Instagram user on Ehrich’s anniversary post. When questioned, they added that the singer saw “a screenshot of him liking and commenting on her post” in the person’s Instagram Stories. “She went and followed him back and i guess they fell in love very quickly once they met.”
