Just two days after People confirmed Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich had called off their engagement, Max, 29, announced he only discovered the relationship was over when he saw the news in a "tabloid." A source close to Demi, however, disagrees.
"Imagine finding out to the status of your relationship through a tabloid… ," he wrote on his Instagram Story early in the morning on Saturday, Sept. 26, according to JustJared. "While your [sic] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a Pastor in a Christian Church whose intention of the film is to help people."
He added "God bless" and signed off with a dove Emoji.
After Max's post grabbed headlines Saturday, an insider told People Max had already been informed of their revised "relationship status."
"Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press," the source said.
The former couple's seeming disagreement comes after a week of rumors suggesting Demi, 28, no longer trusted Max after screenshots surfaced earlier this month that appeared to show her fiance flirting with other pop stars.
One allegedly showed him calling Ariana Grande "my wife," while another claimed he told Selena Gomez to "MARRY ME NOW" during an Instagram Live. Demi said at the time the screenshots looked fake.
Then, after a week of rumors suggesting the couple was on the verge of a split, People cited a source "with knowledge of the situation" as having confirmed they were done.
"It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers," the insider reportedly said. "They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together."
After the report was published, Demi posted a video of herself on her Instagram Story that showed her looking in a mirror without her ring on while wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase, "Dogs Over People."
If they have indeed called it quits just two months into their engagement, it would be on par with what's been a fast-moving relationship from the beginning. The pair just started dating in March but quickly became smitten with one another, judging from their frequent, PDA and love-filled social media posts.
Then, in Malibu on July 22, the former "Young and the Restles" star popped the question to Demi. She said "yes" and shared another moving tribute to Max on Instagram, announcing the engagement.
As of Saturday morning, posts featuring Max — including those with photos from the moment he proposed — were still on Demi's Instagram.
Max is currently filming "Southern Gospel" in and around Atlanta, according to imdb.
