Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich have parted ways.
The 28-year-old singer and her former fiance have called off their relationship after two months of their engagement, according to a source close to Lovato who spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.
“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” the source said.
“They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich began dating this year.
The news of their break up comes after the couple announced their engagement on Instagram in July by sharing a photo of themselves kissing on the beach.
“@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,” Demi Lovato wrote alongside the photos flaunting her ring.

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!!!
