Following the news of Demi Lovato's engagement to Jordan Lutes, fans noticed that her ex-fiance, Max Ehrich, had started posting old pictures of them, promising to love Demi Lovato forever, and claiming that eventually, the two of them would get back together and release new music together... Except he wasn't.

According to a statement posted by Max Ehrich to his social media accounts, the posts came from an impersonator who was running a fake account and pretending to be him. "That chapter of our shared lives was closed peacefully and privately a long time ago," he wrote in a statement where he acknowledged their breakup and commented on the fact that a fake account was impersonating him.

Although the account has since been taken down, the posts shared by the account have been archived and reuploaded some of the posts and screenshots of alleged DMs shared by the fake Max Ehrich account. Among them were pictures from their engagement, captioned with, "You're the reason she won't marry the love of her life, who has always been me."

Inside Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich's short engagement

Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich got engaged in 2020 after being together for four months, their relationship first becoming public when the former Disney Channel star and The Young and the Restless actor were being flirty in social media comments.

Unfortunately for the two of them, their relationship didn't last and they called off their engagement only two months later. According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Demi Lovato felt like she needed to prove to the world that she was in a better place after her 2018 overdose. She said that finding true love and getting engaged would be proof that she was in a more stable place, but she realized after getting engaged to Max Ehrich that it wasn't the case.

"Also, the size of that ring, it made it really real. The second it was off, I was like, 'You know what? I'm good. I don't need that.' I just don't need an object on my finger to make me feel like I've got my [expletive] together. It looks like stability, but it doesn't mean that it is. And I don't actually grow through stability. I find that I like living not in chaos or crisis, but in fluidity. "
