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.

Now, Demi has taken to her Instagram Stories to address the backlash surrounding her fiancé and she has accused people of doctoring screenshots to stir up drama. She wrote: "It's really sad when people FAKE images to pit women against each other. If women have conflict that's between them NOT YOU."

Demi added: "Secondly, don't y'all have more important shit 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."

Max hasn't directly commented on the tweets but, as well as deactivating his Twitter account, he has disabled comments on his Instagram page. Max has also posted a bible verse on Instagram that reads: "The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine on you... and give you peace."
