Monty Lopez, Addison Rae’s father, has made his personal life quite dramatic. He became a well-known TikTok personality after his daughter’s unexpected popularity, gaining over 5 million followers after creating his account in 2019.
He began contributing content to the channel after seeing his daughter and wife’s success on the network. He decided to take a year off work to figure out how to become popular on TikTok.
According to reports, the 46-year-old worked in real estate before becoming a well-known internet personality.
Lopez was recently exposed for cheating on his wife, Sheri Easterling, and having an affair with a number of young girls.
Needless to say, he’s been subjected to a massive backlash, and his daughter and wife have been dragged into the fray.
Everything we know about the situation is listed below.
The beginning of the drama
The TikTok star unfollowed her father on social media on June 28, 2022.
Sheri deleted the word “wife” from her Instagram bio and unfollowed Lopez.
This fueled speculation about Rae’s parents’ divorce.
Then, on July 4, 2022, a video of TikTok user @iamjessk apparently Face Timing with Rae’s father in a car at night surfaced on Twitter.
Although it is difficult to prove that Lopez is taking part in the video conversation, supporters claim that the man’s voice sounds strikingly similar to his.
Soon after the tape went viral, another video of Lopez allegedly getting too close to a young woman went viral.
The video was shot by the now-defunct TikTok account @marlig. “I swear to God, Addison Rae’s father is trying to [expletive] me,” a woman can be heard saying in a bar.
The woman was then seen covering her mouth in surprise, and the video cut to a scene in the club in which Lopez is said to be approaching a woman in an attempt to strike up a conversation with her.
Easterling was clearly heartbroken because she tweeted, “I deserve happiness, peace, joy, hope, love, patience, and kindness.”
A five-month relationship
Lopez faced a massive backlash from netizens following the videos of girls claiming Rae’s father was hitting on them.
Renée Ash, also known as @renee.ash on Instagram, revealed that she and Lopez were dating.
On the podium, she told her stories and stated, “Every story has two sides. When I’m ready to discuss the situation, I’ll gladly share my perspective.”
Following that, Ash posted a photo of herself with Lopez with the caption “5 months wasted,” claiming she had a five-month affair with him.
She also shared a few photos of them kissing. “Cannot believe the actions taken by this person,” read one of the images. “I’m extremely embarrassed.”
Ash also shared screenshots of her text conversation with Lopez. Lopez is said to have texted the former “I love you” in one of the texts.
Lopez, on the other hand, appeared to be having a good time. He posted a TikTok video in which he lipsynced to the viral TikTok sound ‘am I the drama?’
“Is it me?” he asked, lip-syncing. Is it my drama? I don’t believe I am the drama. Perhaps I am! Am I the bad guy? “I don’t think I’m the bad guy!”
The video was later removed from his profile.
On July 7, 2022, Ash spoke with Page Six about her affair and drama.
Ash stated that she had a five-month relationship with Lopez before realizing he had lied to her all along after seeing the films.
He had told her that his marriage to his wife was over, despite the fact that it was not.
Lopez even introduced her to his family and told her he wanted to have children with her, leading Ash to believe they were unique.
He told Ash about his marriage, convincing her that he was separated from Easterling and seeking a divorce.
According to Page Six, Lopex informed Ash that they were a powerful couple who planned to live together, marry, and have children.
When Ash asked Lopez about his relationship with his wife, he said they never really talked and that their marriage was “weird.”
Other allegations include the famous TikToker’s father “leaving” his wife for “bitching” and “[expletive] with” him.
He then warned Ash that exhibiting these behaviors could lead to the end of their relationship.
According to an insider, the alleged couple was on the verge of divorce after a pregnancy scare.
When Ash told Lopez she thought she was pregnant, he laughed and assured her that she wasn’t.
After that, Ash tried to break up with Lopez, but he kept texting her and they reconciled.
She ended their relationship after discovering he had cheated on her.
Sheri Easterling’s Reaction
Easterling took to Instagram after the publication of Ash’s allegations and an interview with Page Six to make a statement about her ex-husband.
“Personal matters made public are always challenging and overwhelming for anyone involved,” she wrote. I’ll be fine.
My primary concern is, and will always be, my children and their vulnerable hearts and minds.”
She stated that her goal was to make them feel safe and secure and that she would do everything in her power to protect them.
Finally, she thanked everyone who had expressed their love and support to her.
She also altered her bio, adding “single mom” to it. Rae and Lopez have not responded to the situation.
