#MaxEhrichIsOverParty began trending on Twitter after an array of his old tweets and Instagram videos resurfaced.
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich started dating earlier this year and officially went public in May. Max is an actor and singer best known for his work in The Young and the Restless. In July, Max and Demi got engaged. In an Instagram post, Demi wrote: "I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby."
Now, Max is being called out over a series of comments surrounding Demi, Selena Gomez and other female celebrities.
Over the weekend, numerous alleged screenshots of Max Ehrich tweets went viral in which he writes about Selena. In one of them from 2010, he allegedly wrote: "Hahaha selena gomez and demi are cute together but boy if you think demi is prettier.. you're WRONG". Max also allegedly wrote "MARRY ME NOW" in the comments of a 2018 Selena Instagram Live video.
On top of that, fans also shared screenshots of Max allegedly interacting with a Selena Max fan page on Instagram. Not to mention, one of Max's old Instagram Live's went viral in which he says: "I've actually had a major crush on her since 2010. Obviously, I put it out on Twitter. I think Selena Gomez is an extraordinary woman. She's an angel and I love her."
People also accused Max of being a "clout chaser" after finding out that he allegedly made similar comments about stars including Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Bella Hadid.
Shortly afterwards, #MaxEhrichIsOverParty began trending on Twitter and Max deactivated his account.
