Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich have ended their engagement after two months, a source close to the singer confirmed to Billboard.
A source with knowledge of the situation exclusively told the magazine that the 28-year-old pop star and 29-year-old actor amicably split up to focus on their own careers.
“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” the source told People. “They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”
The Young and the Restless star surprised Lovato with a beachside proposal on July 22, which the “Confident” singer posted about on Instagram. “I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself,” she wrote when first announcing their engagement. “And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!!”
The couple celebrated their six-month anniversary earlier this month on Sept. 7 by posting tributes to one another on their Instagram stories. Lovato and Ehrich made their relationship known to the public on May 7 by making a surprise appearance in Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande‘s “Stuck With U” music video.
