Demi Lovato’s Ex-Fiancé Max Ehrich Just Compared Their Relationship To That of Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande — Here’s What He Had To Say
Not only did the singer write a song about their breakup and Ehrich go on a social media rant claiming their split was one-sided, but the former soap opera star is now accusing Lovato of “using him” — and even dragged Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson into their drama.
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich called it quits after a four-month-long engagement
Just last month, things between Lovato and Ehrich seemed copacetic. The couple were happily engaged, flaunting their relationship on social media, and were even considering eloping.
However, things quickly went downhill after fans dusted off some of Ehrich’s old social media posts in which he confessed his love for several other celebrities, including Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.
Though the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer quickly came to her fiancé’s defense by telling fans and tabloids to stop creating “fake” drama, she soon learned the truth about the actor’s intentions and decided to call off their engagement.
“It was very hurtful to Demi when she realized that Max’s intentions weren’t genuine,” a source told People after news of the couple’s split made headlines. ″Breaking off the engagement was not an easy decision.”
Demi Lovato believes Max Ehrich was ‘using her name’ to further his career
After it was revealed that Lovato and Ehrich had called it quits, new information surrounding their breakup began to surface.
At the time, insiders revealed that the pair were having ″conflicts″ in the weeks leading up to their split. They also reported that Lovato started to believe that Max was ″trying to further his career by using her name behind her back,″ and that she had come to the conclusion that she made a mistake being with him.
Though Lovato has yet to address her breakup from Ehrich publicly, The Young and The Restless alum has continued to speak candidly about their split.
In a now-deleted post shared to his Instagram Story at the end of September, Ehrich claimed that he learned his engagement was over after reading a tabloid.
“Imagine finding out about the status of your relationship through a tabloid,” he wrote, per Page Six. “While your in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a Pastor in a Christian Church whose intention of the film is to help people,” he added, before sharing another post that said, “God bless.”
He also alleged that he has not spoken to Lovato about the split and said that they have yet to end their relationship officially.
“To this moment… we haven’t spoken over the phone… we haven’t even officially ended anything to each other, literally,” he penned in a since-deleted post. “I’m here in real time with y’all. I love Demetria and just want her to be healthy and safe.”
Max Ehrich says Demi Lovato used him as a ‘calculated PR stunt’
Instead of leaving things at that, Ehrich is still posting about his breakup.
In fact, the actor recently took to Instagram Live to put Lovato on blast by accusing her of using him in a “calculated PR stunt.”
“It’s just the craziest thing. This is the most bizarre experience that I hope no one ever has to experience, ever.” Ehrich said in the live video. “Because no person deserves to feel this way.”
Ehrich then dragged Ariana Grande and her two exes, Pete Davidson and Mac Miller, into the drama, comparing their situation to his and Lovato’s.
“Pete Davidson didn’t deserve to feel this way. Do you think he wrote that text to Mac Miller? Ha. Open your eyes,” he continued. “It’s a calculated PR stunt, but my team is going to hate me for saying any of this.”
But he didn’t stop there.
Ehrich also took a jab at Lovato’s new song “Still Have Me,” which talks about their short-lived romance.
“I was in love. The whole world should freakin’ know it. I thought I found the real deal, now I found out that I was used,” he added. “But I hope the song is number one, because you know what, if that’s what someone wants in the material world, here you go, you have it. I hope this makes you happy. Enjoy. You just lost someone who loved you fully, completely, infinitely, for everything.”
