Demi Lovato’s ex-fiance Max Ehrich has made an impassioned plea to their fans to stop “bullying” them online.
Demi and Max started dating in March and got engaged after a whirlwind romance in July. However, following their split in September, the 29-year-old The Young and the Restless actor alleged he found out their engagement was off “through a tabloid” while filming new movie Southern Gospel on location in Atlanta, Georgia.
He went on to accuse Demi of using him to further her career, calling the separation a “calculated PR stunt”, and prompting much speculation about the nature of the split, while Demi released her new single, Still Have Me, addressing the breakup, last week.
Max spoke with TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday and shared his hope that “the media starts respecting both of us as human beings and just leave us alone”.
Addressing the backlash from fans on social media, he added: “I think that we’re both anti-bullying people, so people should just stop bullying people.
“It’s ridiculous, it’s silly, and what people think it’s about is nothing to do with what’s actually happening. So, people just shouldn’t read anything or believe what they’re reading.”
While the pair might not be together anymore, Max had nothing but good words to say about the Confident singer, insisting: “I wish her the best. I just want her to be the happiest person in the world.”
However, he added he needs “some time” before he starts dating again.
