Several weeks ago, Demi Lovato got engaged to her boyfriend of just five months, former soap actor/singer Max Ehrich. At 28, this is Demi’s first engagement, and methinks it won’t be her last, because shit is already starting to hit the fan. A bunch of Max’s old social media posts have resurfaced, in which the pretty boy declares his undying love for Demi’s sworn enemy/former bestie Selena Gomez. The internet brought out a tweet from 2015 that maybe takes a swipe at his future would-be wife, Demi: “There’s a female singer that screams so much, that’s why my girl S is better than you know who 😂 !”
Here’s the case against 29-year-old Max:

Once again, these pop star obsessives are doing better detective work than Sherlock Holmes and Monk combined. We need to sic the stans on some actual unsolved mysteries: D.B. Cooper, who shot JFK, Jack the Ripper, the identity of Toothy Tile!
Demi responded to her fans’ stellar sleuthing with lots of very serious text on her Instagram Stories:
Demi Lovato asks fans to stop pitting female artists against one another in new Instagram story:
“It’s really sad when people fake images to put women against one another….don’t y’all have more important sh*t to write about in 2020?” pic.twitter.com/sWaD3t82o7

Here’s the transcript:
“It’s really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other. If women have conflict that’s between them NOT YOU,” wrote Lovato. “Secondly, don’t y’all have more important shit to write about in 2020??? I challenge any tabloid that dares to type my name to mention Breonna Taylor and the fact that her murderers still haven’t been arrested. WRITE ABOUT THAT.
But then I stop and think.. it’s hella rude but damn.. I get it. And I don’t wanna look at what’s really happening in the world either but WE HAVE TO,” she wrote. “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.So while on one hand I understand and have compassion for those who are so horrified at the reality of 2020 that they gotta distract themselves with doctored images in order to not focus on how bad these times are, but on the other hand, if you aren’t 13 years old trying to grasp the reality of right now, put on your adult underpants and write about what actually matters. Please.”
Ah, I see Demi attended The Jeffree Star School of Using Breonna Taylor’s Death As A Distraction, and went on to get her Masters at The Katy Perry/Taylor Swift Institute of Don’t Pit Female Celebs Against Each Other.
Demi’s fans countered her “doctored images” claim by directing her to more vintage “Max Loves Selena” screenshots, and a bunch of old videos where he confirms the crush and refers to Selena as his “wife”:

So, getting engaged after five months of pandemic-dating will never be filed under “Wise Decision-making”, but, after a rough few years, I was rooting for Demi. But now, all signs are pointing to Max, who formerly dated Bella Thorne and produced music with Rebecca Black, being a Fame Monster (and not the fun, gay, Gaga kind). Now we wait and see if Demi does some hard self-reflection, or continues wearing her love blinders and soldiers on with the wedding planning.
