Demi Lovato has said she’d “rather be alone” in a brand new song released just days after her split with Max Ehrich.
The couple got engaged in July, four months after they met back in March – before news broke that they had called it quits last week.
Although Demi has remained silent about the split, she released a new track called Still Me today – where she sings about her “love disappearing” and being “a mess”.
Sharing the track on Instagram, she wrote: “Music is always there for me.”
The new track comes after Max claimed he found out about his and Demi’s relationship ending “through a tabloid”.
Taking to his Instagram Stories over the weekend, he wrote: “I was on the set of my new movie, Southern Gospel, with crew and cast members right next to me who literally watched me open my phone where I then opened a tabloid.
“This is the God’s honest truth of how I found out about the ending of the engagement and have people from my film who saw the whole thing go down and helped me get back into character to continue my job.”
“I had cast and crew with families relying on me to do my job,” he explained.
“That being said, please end this narrative and focus on more important issues in the world. I love and forgive everyone involved. Let us be. Let us heal. God bless.”
After Max’s claims, a source told E! News that he was “lying”, and that he had known about the split prior to the media.
“Demi did tell him beforehand,” the insider shared, claiming Max is “just trying to stay relevant”.
“Her family thinks he is crazy and is so relieved she has taken this step.”
A source recently told the publication that Demi and Max were “arguing a lot” in recent weeks, and the singer soon realised “she didn’t know who Max truly was and didn’t think he had good intentions.”
“There were many red flags she was ignoring and trying to turn a blind eye to.”
A second source said Demi “doesn’t trust him and thinks he’s sketchy”, and she allegedly “feels he proposed to get attention.”
It’s understood Demi’s friends and family, including her mother Diana De La Garza, were “warning” her about Max.
An insider said Demi was urged to end their relationship “sooner than later.”
