Just last week, reports emerged that Demi Lovato had a new man in her life: The Young and the Restless star Max Ehrich. Now, the pop star may have confirmed the news by accidentally appearing in his Instagram Live stream.
While fans have recently picked up on Lovato and Ehrich posting flirty comments on each other’s Instagram posts—not to mention his Instagramposts with her pets—neither has commented publicly on the relationship. Of course, they could just be two friends social distancing together during a global pandemic… In fact, at the beginning of March, Lovato claimed to be single on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
“I was on dating apps for a while but as I’ve spent some time with myself over the past couple months, I realized that I am the type of person that will find any way to regulate when I’m sad or lonely or whatever,” she said. “I have to fight those battles on my own and I can’t let somebody come in and fix those issues for me. So right now, I’m single and spending my Saturday nights by myself.”
However, on March 25, a source with Us Weekly said otherwise, asserting that the relationship “is off to a strong start,” while a second source told the publication that the pair “met a few weeks ago.” So, the timeline appears to track.
Just a few days ago, Ehrich shared a video on Instagram, singing “Yellow” by Coldplay. “4D🌹<3,” he captioned the post. One could reasonably assume that translates to “for Demi,” right? Fans sure thought so.
Then, just yesterday on March 28, Lovato made an accidental appearance in Ehrich’s Instagram Live. He was performing on the piano when Lovato walked into the frame. Ehrich seemed to mouth “I’m live” multiple times before she realized, covering her face with a blanket, making a surprised sound, and popping right back out of the shot—it was all pretty adorable if you ask me.
Now seems like a good time to start planning their official ship name as we wait for confirmation…Demix? Dax? I’ll keep thinking.
