Demi Lovato, 28, is ready to date nearly five months after ending her engagement with actor Max Ehrich, 29, a source close to the singer. However, the Disney Channel alum has other priorities now that she’s single. She’s currently more focused on recording in the studio, where she’s spending time in as much as possible, our source reveals — and that’s not all.
The singer is also focusing on her sobriety which is at the top of Demi Lovato’s mind right now, the insider adds. Demi, who has struggled with substance abuse since she was a teenager, revealed that she suffered a relapse after six years of sobriety in her heartbreaking ballad “Sober” in June of 2018.
Demi Lovato began dating Max Ehrich at the beginning of the pandemic (he accidentally crashed the actress and singer’s Instagram Live in March of 2020, thus revealing their romance). It was a whirlwind romance, and Max already proposed to Demi by July.
However, awkward news regarding Max Ehrich surfaced that very same month: fans pointed to old tweets, allegedly posted by The Young and the Restless star, to accuse him of raving over Demi’s Disney friends like Selena Gomez.
Although Demi Lovato called the tweets “fake,” their breakup was reported towards the end of September. Max didn’t appear to take the split well, and claimed that Demi had supposedly called off a “calculated PR stunt” during an Instagram Live session in Oct. 2020.
