Demi Lovato is opening up about the end of her engagement to Max Ehrich and took it as a “huge sign” about her sexuality.
“When I started getting older, I started realizing how queer I really am,” Demi told Glamour, who noted she was “beaming” while talking. “This past year I was engaged to a man, and when it didn’t work, I was like, This is a huge sign. I thought I was going to spend my life with someone. Now that I wasn’t going to, I felt this sense of relief that I could live my truth.”
Max and Demi got engaged after dating for a short period but called things off in September of 2020.
Demi added she feels “too queer” to be with a cis man.
“I hooked up with a girl and was like, ‘I like this a lot more.’ It felt better. It felt right,” she added. “Some of the guys I was hanging out with—when it would come time to be sexual or intimate, I would have this kind of visceral reaction. Like, ‘I just don’t want to put my mouth there.’ It wasn’t even based on the person it was with. I just found myself really appreciating the friendships of those people more than the romance, and I didn’t want the romance from anybody of the opposite sex.”
As for when she’ll define her sexuality, Demi said, “I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am. I’m following my healers’ timeline, and I’m using this time to really study and educate myself on my journey and what I’m preparing to do.”
After their split, Max claimed Demi used him and their split as a PR stunt and Demi fired back and said Max would not leave her alone.
