Famous TikTok influencer Addison Rae's dad, Monty Lopez, has recently come under fire after a video on the social media app accused him of cheating on his wife Sheri Easterling. Here's everything you need to know about the allegations.
Addison Rae gained popularity in 2020 during quarantine for filming videos of herself dancing. But one reason she blew up on the app was because of how close she and her family were. The 21-year-old often shared clips with her mom, dad, and two younger brothers. The family even got their own series on Snapchat called, Addison Rae Goes Home. The Lopezs are admired by many - but now the family of 5 is in the midst of a crisis following allegations that Monty cheated on his wife for more than 2 decades. It all started when Addison unfollowed her dad on social media on June 28. Fan also noticed that Sheri removed "wife" from her Instagram bio... Rumors began to spread, but even more so following two trending TikTok videos.
On the 4th of July, a video of a user named @iamjessk was spread showing her Facetiming Monty in a car late at night. Although it's not concrete that the man on the other side of the phone was, in fact, Addison's dad, many of the comments speculated that the voice in the video sounded just like Monty's. Shortly after that, another video came out on a now-deleted account that was named @marlig_. In the TikTok footage, a young woman is at a nightclub when she says to her friend, "Addison Rae's dad is trying to f*** me. I swear to god." The video then cuts to another clip where a man who resembled Lopez is seen chatting with the woman. The comments were filled with angry fans, while others wondered if it was all fake.
As all this was going on on Tiktok, a woman named Renee Ash dropped more allegations against Monty on Instagram. The model posted numerous photos of her and Monty being intimate, and she even shared screenshots of texts between herself and the father of 3. In one exchange, the man she claims is Monty texted her, "Please be the queen of my empire," and "I love you." Ash then proceeded to share one last photo of them kissing, where she writes, "Cannot believe the actions made by this person. Thoroughly embarrassed." She then released a statement saying, "There are two sides to every story. When I'm ready to discuss the situation, I will be happy to share my side." At the moment, neither Addison nor Sheri have responded to the accusations. Stay tuned for updates.
