Demi Lovato is slamming resurfaced social media posts about Selena Gomez attributed to her fiancé, Max Ehrich, as fake and doctored.
On Sunday night, the “OK Not to Be OK” singer posted a statement on her Instagram Story in which she expressed her true thoughts about the people who tend to focus on less important issues rather than those which actually deserve attention.
Though she didn’t mention names, the social media statement came after fans on Twitter circulated old screenshots and videos seemingly linked back to Ehrich, in which he expressed his love for Selena Gomez, gushing over the pop star and telling his followers he wanted to marry her.
“It’s really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other. If women have conflict that’s between them NOT YOU,” wrote Demi.
“Secondly, don’t y’all have more important s— to write about in 2020??? I challenge any tabloid that dares to type my name to mention Breonna Taylor and the fact that her murderers still haven’t been arrested. WRITE ABOUT THAT.”
Demi went on to urge her followers to focus on other more important issues. “But then I stop and think.. it’s hella rude but damn.. I get it. And I don’t wanna look at what’s really happening in the world either but WE HAVE TO,” she wrote.
“Yes, it’s easier to tear apart celebrities and their relationships because 2020 sucks and scares the s— out of us all but it’s only gonna stay terrifying until we address it all and WORK ON SOLUTIONS TOGETHER.”
In conclusion, she said: “So while on one hand I understand and have compassion for those who are so horrified at the reality of 2020 that they gotta distract themselves with doctored images in order to not focus on how bad these times are, but on the other hand, if you aren’t 13 years old trying to grasp the reality of right now, put on your adult underpants and write about what actually matters. Please.”
In the posts and Instagram comments which are said to have been shared by Ehrich before becoming romantically linked with Demi, the actor gushed of several pop stars, including Selena, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus.
