For those that may have forgotten, Demi Lovato’s short-lived engagement with Max-Ehrich and the breakup that followed was messy. Needless to say Max Ehrich was in tears and claimed he only found out about the breakup through tabloids and that it was all a PR stunt.
Now the singer is opening up about her engagement and what went wrong in a new documentary called Dancing with the Devil, set to be released on Tuesday 23 March on YouTube.
In explaining the reason behind her break-up Demi claims;
“Honestly, what happened? I think I rushed into something that I thought was what I was supposed to do.”
"I realized as time went on that I didn’t actually know the person that I was engaged to.”
She went on to state that she felt the relationship was “false advertising”
“All the people that were like, ‘Oh they rushed into it,’ or ‘It’s not gonna last,’ I’m like, ‘You proved them right,’” the Camp Rock star said.
“We were only together four to five months, and like, honestly, it was false advertising.”
She also commented that perhaps the quarantine accelerated the relationship.
“It’s just, like, of course that accelerated. I didn’t even have my best friends to hang out with in quarantine. The hardest part of the breakup was mourning the person I thought he was.”
In trying to address Max’s claims around finding out about the breakup through tabloids and it being a PR stunt, Demi claims;
“I mean, I was just as shocked as the rest of the world at some of the things that were said and done."
She goes on to claim that she is too queer to marry a man right now.
“I feel like I’m actually too queer to marry a man in my life right now.”
“I’m not willing to put a label on it right this second, and I think I will get there, but there’s a lot of things that I have to do for myself first. I want to allow myself the ability to live my life in the most authentic form possible.”
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich got engaged only four months after dating and were engaged in July 2020 but two months later, Levato called off the engagement.
