In this combination photo, Demi Lovato, left, arrives at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20, 2018, in Las Vegas and Max Ehrich arrives at the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” premiere on June 28, 2017, in Los Angeles. Singers-actors Lovato and Ehrich have called off their engagement after two months, according to a person close to Lovato who spoke Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020, on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

The “Give Your Heart a Break” singer, 28, is “doing okay” after making the “tough decision” to end her short engagement with Max Ehrich, 29, after coming to believe he was “trying to further his career by using her name behind her back,” an insider told People.

“It was hard for Demi to admit she made a mistake when it came to Max,” the source told the outlet.

People first reported the couple’s split Thursday, just over two months after they got engaged in Malibu. The pair started dating four months earlier.

“It was very hurtful to Demi when she realized that Max’s intentions weren’t genuine,” another source close to the Disney Channel alumnus told People. “Breaking off the engagement was not an easy decision.”

As the couple started seeing each other toward the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and quarantines, a source noted they were “basically together 24/7 for months,” during which the pair “lived in a bubble with zero stress and everything was just fun.”

When the “Young and the Restless” actor went to Atlanta to film the movie “Southern Gospel,” the insider said he “shot up in fame” and “got wrapped up in [Hollywood],” which took a toll on the relationship.
