Singer Demi Lovato has dated her fair share of celebrity men — but in July 2020, it looked like she finally met The One. The former Disney Channel star got engaged to her then-boyfriend Max Ehrich and revealed she was “ecstatic to start a family and [a] life” with the Young and the Restless actor.
Sadly, just two months later, Life & Style confirmed the pair’s sudden split after just six months together. According to In Touch, the “pressure” of their impending marriage was too much for Demi to handle. “She’s so in love with Max that she’ll do anything to protect it, but it may be backfiring,” a source told the publication.
Moreover, the New Mexico Native traveled to Georgia “to be close” to Max while he was filming the movie Southern Gospel. “It wasn’t the best idea,” added the insider. “Max loves Demi, but he needs his space. It’s no secret that he’s feeling overwhelmed.”
Romance rumors about Demi and Max first started in March 2020 after fans noticed they were leaving flirty comments on each other’s Instagram posts. The couple quarantined together and the relationship got more “serious” as a result of self-isolation, Us Weekly reported.
Before Demi started seeing Max, she dated model Austin Wilson. She and the tattooed hunk made their relationship Instagram official in November 2019 — and though their relationship was short-lived, they were great influences on each other.
“Austin and Demi share the same circle of friends and most of them are also in recovery,” a source revealed to In Touch that year. “It’s super important for her to surround herself with people who are healthy. But Demi feels really comfortable with Austin because he understands her struggle and her journey, so they can really talk about and bond over their shared experiences and their sobriety.”
Ultimately, they split in late December 2019 — and Demi even addressed the breakup on social media. “Please don’t go after [Austin],” she told a follower on Instagram. “He’s a good guy. Much better than what people see on the outside just because he’s got a lot of tattoos.”
The “Sober” artist also noted the split was difficult for both of them. “Breakups are hard for both parties involved,” she added. “Just stay nice and say prayers.” Demi and Austin both deleted all traces of each other from their Instagram grids after they went their separate ways.
Two years after her split from Max, Demi moved on and is dating singer Jute$, whose real name is Jordan Lutes, In Touch exclusively confirmed on August 17.
“Jute$ is a free spirit and very chill and that speaks to Demi,” a source told the outlet. “He’s no drama and that’s exactly what she needs right now.
