Last week, reports surfaced that Demi Lovato and her fiancé Max Ehrich had split up just two months after getting engaged.
Now, Ehrich is claiming he found out the couple's engagement was over by reading tabloid stories online.
In a series of emotional Instagram posts, Ehrich said he was on the set of his new movie Southern Gospel when he opened his phone and read the news.
"This is the God's honest truth of how I found out about the ending of the engagement and have people from my film who saw the whole thing go down and helped me get back into character to continue my job," he wrote.
In another slide with the caption "leave me alone", Ehrich shared a screenshot of a text message that read: "To find out over the internet was beyond anything I could've ever imagined a person could do to another human."
The Young and the Restless star also mentioned his four nominations from the Emmy academy and the "great morals" of his new film. "I'm not interested in any attention, I'm interested in doing my art," he wrote.
