Demi Lovato has only been off the market for a few months, but she might be off the market for good.
The lucky guy who scored the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is 28-year-old actor Max Ehrich, who currently appears on Lifetime’s “American Princess.”
Lovato, 27, was seen exchanging flirty social media comments with him when the virus first broke out. They were speculated to be quarantined together soon after, and she accidentally confirmed this herself. The GRAMMY nominee appeared to be fresh out of the shower when she crashed Ehrich’s Instagram Live session in late March and quickly hid behind her towel when she realized what was going on.
Their three-month relationship has quickly ramped up during lockdown – a source said last week that “they’ve been talking about getting engaged.”

“Her family really likes him. He’ll likely propose within the next couple of months, but when quarantine is over,” they told UsWeekly on Wednesday.
They believe it’s actually moved beyond pillow talk, reporting that Ehrich has already chosen a “very sizable ring” for her.
“Demi has been aware and in on the fact that Max wants to propose and is so excited,” they added.”
Lovato shared a clip of their PDA-packed pop up to her Instagram, saying she was “Happy to be a part of something so special right now. Like really REALLY happy if you can’t tell… ??? “
But right before the video dropped, E! News wrote that “wedding bells aren’t ringing for Demi Lovato anytime soon.”
Reports about a possible engagement first surfaced in April. Things could’ve changed since then, but an insider told E! that “the engagement rumors are not true. It’s still early in the relationship and Demi and Max are enjoying just getting to know each other.”
The source added that “Max is very much in love with Demi and is infatuated with her…He supports her sobriety and is very understanding.”
Lovato’s last boyfriend was model Austin Wilson. They split in December 2019 after a few months of dating.
After the breakup, a tipster told PEOPLE that Lovato was “concentrating on herself and her work right now, as well as focusing on her relationship with God.”
Lovato has slowed down her regular relationships sharings in recent weeks – she’s shifted her focus to the ongoing racial injustices in America, providing her 85 million Instagram followers with the tools to get involved too.
She’s put some Pride posts in the mix but has been specifically relating them to the current civil unrest.
On Sunday, Lovato made it clear that her “‘All BLACK lives matter’ (meaning black trans lives included)” statement was “not to be confused with the insensitive slogan ‘All lives matter.’”
Lovato is a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. Her 2015 hit “Cool For The Summer” sparked massive speculation she was sexually interested in women, which she later confirmed in her 2017 documentary “Simply Complicated.”
Lovato began living with Ehrich when she covered the April edition of Harper’s Bazaar. At the time, she didn’t know if she’d end up with a guy or a girl.
“When I imagine my life in the future, I don’t say, ‘I’m looking for a man who I want to have two or three kids with.’ I think it could be so much fun to share children with a woman,” the ex-Disney star said.
“So I don’t know what my future will look like, and I’m open to anything…There is no type. It is solely off connection.”
Exactly where Lovato and Ehrich are spending their California quarantine remains a mystery. In several different interviews, the “I’m Ready” singer said she fled her apartment building when some neighbors tested positive for COVID-19.
She was staying with her family in another part of LA as a result.
In better news, Lovato’s Hollywood Hills home finally sold last week, giving her a payday of $8.25 million. That’s pretty close to the $8.3 million she paid for it in 2016. The missing money might be worth it too – the house held some haunting memories.
Not only was the property damaged after a 2017 mudslide, but the property was also the location of Lovato’s near-fatal overdose in 2018.
