It seems Demi Lovato has split up with her boyfriend Austin Wilson just one month after confirming on Instagram that the two were dating. Both Lovato and Wilson have deleted all social media photos of the two together, and the 27-year-old singer confirmed the breakup in a direct message on Instagram that was published by the Daily Mail.
"Please don't go after him. He's a good guy. Much better than what people see on the outside just because he's got a lot of tattoos," she wrote in the DM. "Breakups are hard for both parties involved. Just stay nice and say prayers."
The break-up comes just a few days after photographer Angelo Kritikos shared photos of the two partially naked and embracing. Those images have been removed from the couples' social media, but are still up on Kritikos' account.
A source talked to PEOPLE about the split, saying that Lovato is taking time to focus on herself.
“She’s concentrating on herself and her work right now, as well as focusing on her relationship with God,” the source told the outlet. “She’s excited for what this next chapter in 2020 will bring.”
A different source spoke to PEOPLE about their relationship shortly after it was revealed that they were dating.
“Demi and Austin have been friends for some time and started dating a little while ago,” the source said. “They’re enjoying spending time together and getting to know each other better. Demi is in a really good place right now and hard at work in both the studio and shooting Will and Grace.”
Lovato has been very open about her struggles with addiction and body image. She shared a bikini photo on Instagram in September with an important message about loving your own body.
This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem..also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT
