It is reported that singer Demi Lovato and actor Max Ehrich have split up - two months after announcing their engagement in a whirlwind romance.

Lovato, 28, and The Young and Restless star Ehrich, 29, began dating six months ago and announced their engagement in late July.

Reports have claimed that returning to work after lockdown and the geographical distance involved put a strain on the relationship.

People.com says that Lovato was pictured without her engagement ring on an Instagram Story she posted on Thursday.

Representatives for Lovato and Ehrich have not commented. 

When she shared her engagement photos in July, Lovato wrote: "When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his 'little partner' - something that might've sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent.

"To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I'm officially going to be someone else's partner. @maxehrich - I knew I loved you the moment I met you. It was something I can't describe to anyone who hasn't experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too."
