Demi Lovato reflects on broken engagement in new self-love anthem

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is reflecting on her shock split from ex-fiance Max Ehrich in a new ballad all about self-love.

The Sorry Not Sorry singer was reported to have dumped Ehrich last week (ends September 25, 2020), and the actor, who has been filming a new faith-based movie on location in Georgia, subsequently took to social media to claim he had learned all about their breakup “through a tabloid”, as he pleaded with Demi to answer his calls and “forgive” him so they could reconcile.

Did you know Demi Lovato credited her ex-fiance for making her life ‘so much better’?

The pop star has yet to directly address the broken engagement, but on Wednesday (September 30, 2020), she dropped a new song that appeared to hint at her feelings about the end of the whirlwind romance.

She teased the release of Still Have Me in a Twitter post late on Tuesday, writing, “Music is always there for me… song in the am (morning)”.

The ballad features the lyrics, “I’m a mess and I’m still broken/But I’m finding my way back/And it feels like someone’s stolen all the light I ever had/It hurts to breathe/I don’t have much, but at least I still have me/And that’s all I need.”

According to TMZ sources, Demi wrote the song a few months ago but reworked some of the lyrics in the wake of her new single status.

And it appears Demi’s representatives were caught off-guard by the surprise release as they scrambled to make Still Have Me available to stream and download on platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.

Reacting to the song post on Instagram, her manager Scooter Braun commented with a red heart icon and added, “Now let’s just get it up on streamers”, alongside a smiley face with sweat emoji.

Lovato and the former The Young and the Restless star Ehrich became engaged in July, just four months after they started dating.
