Max Ehrich is the star of The Young & The Restless and also Demi Lovato's now-former fiancé. "It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers," a source revealed. "They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together."

What's interesting is that the couple's split comes less than two weeks after old tweets about his love for Selena Gomez surfaced. 

"It's really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other. If women have conflict that's between them NOT YOU," the "Cool for the Summer" singer wrote on Instagram. "Yes, it's easier to tear apart celebrities and their relationships because 2020 sucks and scares the s*** out of us all but it's only gonna stay terrifying until we address it all and WORK ON SOLUTIONS TOGETHER."

Max Ehrich is a soap star.

Though Ehrich's most recent credit has to do with his work on The Young & The Restless, where he played Fenmore Baldwin, Ehrich's acting resume is actually quite impressive. He's had a guest-starring role on Law & Order: SVU, starred as Hunter May in Under the Dome, and also stars as Brett on American Princess.

He first posted Instagram Stories with Lovato's dogs, fueling rumors they were a couple. 

One of the biggest hints that Ehrich and Lovato are more than just friends has to do with an Instagram story that Ehrich posted that featured Lovato's two beloved dogs. What's more, Lovato let a sexy comment on one of Ehrich's Instagram photos

Prior to Ehrich, Lovato was linked to model Austin Wilson, but they called it quits just weeks after making things "Instagram official."

Ehrich is credited with being a positive influence on Lovato. 

"Max is very into music and health, and he doesn't like to party," a source close to Lovato said when the two first sparked dating rumors. "He's a good influence on Demi and they have a lot in common. They have a few mutual friends in common, but Demi has been introducing Max to her closest friends via Facetime since being quarantined. It's very new but they are definitely hanging out and seeing where it leads. They have spent a lot of time together but I wouldn't say it's an exclusive relationship yet."

Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich got engaged in July 2020.

In July 2020, Lovato posted romantic photos of she and Ehrich on the beach while flashing a giant diamond on her ring finger.

"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," she wrote. "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!!!!"

Ehrich was just as excited about their engagement, also posting the photos on Instagram and declaring his love for Lovato.

"Words cannot express how infinitely in love with you I am forever and always and then some. I cannot spend another second of my time here on Earth without the miracle of having you as my wife," he exclaimed.
