But a source told PEOPLE that Max might not have been quite honest about the situation. About Max’s Instagram posts, the source said:

Demi has not addressed the rumors or Max’s claim of not knowing about the breakup yet, but she did post a story on her Instagram last Saturday. It appeared to be a picture of some essential oils and she captioned it:
The Break-up was a tough decision
In the initial breakup disclosure, the source told PEOPLE that it was a tough but mutual decision by both celebrities. The source claimed:
“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers. They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”
However, just after the announcement of the two’s break-up new reports that surfaced revealed that there were trust issues and red flags among both of them.
A source told PEOPLE:
“Demi and Max were basically together 24/7 for months. They lived in a bubble with zero stress, and everything was just fun. Now they are both working and are on separate coasts. There has been a lot of tension, and Demi left him to get a clear head.”
Moreover, there are no pictures of the former couple on Max’s Instagram anymore. When the couple was seen celebrating their six-month anniversary. They uploaded cute Instagram posts for their fans. And pictures describing their relationship are still available on Demi’s page.
Hopefully, this will be the last rumor about the celebrities’ break-up. And they will be left to sort out their feelings peacefully.
