Demi Lovato Just Confirmed She's Dating Max Ehrich By Crashing His Instagram Live
They're officially Insta official.
While most celebrity couple's announce the status of a new relationship on social media with adorably staged PDA-filled photos, Demi Lovato took a different approach entirely when confirming she's dating actor Max Ehrich.
On Saturday, Ehrich — who is reportedly quarantining at Demi's house — began playing the piano for his 1 million followers during an Instagram Live session. Moments later, the signer strolled into the room, showing up in the frame. "I'm on Live," he mouthed to her twice, before she realized she was being recorded. Covering her face with a blanket, Demi scurried out of the room while letting out a nervous laugh.
An accidental cameo isn't the most conventional way to go Instagram official, but it still counts, right?
Earlier this week, E! News reported that Demi and Max have been dating for a few weeks, with a source confirming that they've been self-isolating together "and it's going really well." Lovato and Ehrich haven't commented on their relationship publicly, however, the pair has been dropping hints on Instagram. First, The Young and the Restless star posted a shirtless photo of himself, captioning the shot, "When you realize u should've packed more for your quarantine stay." Demi commented back, "Fine by me..." Then, there are the videos Max posted of himself cuddling with Lovato's two dogs, Batman and Ella, on his Instagram Stories.
"He is a good influence on Demi and they have a lot in common," the insider at E! shared. "They have a few mutual friends in common, but Demi has been introducing Max to her closest friends via Facetime since being quarantined."
However, they allegedly aren't boyfriend-girlfriend (at least not yet). "It's very new but they are definitely hanging out and seeing where it leads," the source added. "They have spent a lot of time together but I wouldn't say it's an exclusive relationship yet." With weeks, maybe months of quarantine remaining, anything is possible.
