According to reports, Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan dumped Max shortly before it was revealed that he'd been ‘sexting’ ex-girlfriend Bobbi Aney.
Despite splitting up, the 23-year-old singer had hoped to share custody of their chihuahua, Pip - which he bought for the actress as an engagement and birthday present - but 25-year-old Michelle has made it clear she doesn’t want him around.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “He's not on great terms with Michelle at the moment, especially after the whole sex
“She won't pick up the phone to him and has made it clear through the small conversations they've had he hasn't got a chance of visiting his pup."
Max and Michelle previously called off their engagement in April, but continued to be boyfriend and girlfriend until secretly splitting a few weeks ago citing busy work schedules.
The source continued: "Max has had a hell of a week. He's been so down about everything that's happened and has been working really hard to try and take his mind off things.
"Max loves the dog and if he wasn't on tour so much he would have Pip living with him.
"He's absolutely gutted about it, he had grown so close to him and feels like he's lost one of his best mates.
"To not even be able to pop in and see him, or take him for a walk from time to time has really upset him."
According to reports, any chance of a reconciliation between the pair went out of the window after Bobbi, 29, told the Sunday Mirror about her alleged illicit affair with Max.
She revealed: "Phone sex
was natural between us, I could get it at the click of a finger."
