Influencer Addison Rae Easterling's personal life is always of public interest, but now it's the personal life of her father, Monty Lopez, that has caught fan attention. Addison's dad Monty has been on-and-off with her mother, Sheri Easterling, but the pair allegedly reconciled in 2017. Now, new reports suggest that Monty has been having an affair.
Is Monty Lopez cheating on his wife? Here's what you need to know.
Addison Rae's dad, Monty Lopez, has been accused of cheating on his wife in several viral TikToks.
Addison Rae isn't the only social media star in the family. Monty Lopez owns his own business, a real estate investment company called ML Sales. Since 2019, he has also had his own TikTok account: @montyjlopez. Monty began posting after seeing his daughter and wife's success on the platform and has risen to TikTok fame in his own right with 5.4 million TikTok followers.
On July 4, 2022, two videos of the real estate mogul began circulating on the internet. The first video from TikTok user @iamjessk features Monty allegedly FaceTiming her in the car at night. Although it's difficult to tell who the man in the video is, fans claim that the voice is unmistakably Monty's. The video has since been deleted, but several fans screen-recorded the video, which has continued to go viral on social media.
A second, since-deleted TikTok by user @marlig featured a woman at a club saying, "Addison Rae’s dad is trying to f--k me. I swear to god." The video then cuts to footage of Monty attempting to get close to a young woman with his hand on her lower back.
Reportedly before these two incidents occurred, Addison and Sheri had unfollowed him on all social media as of June 28, 2022.
In a new report, Renée Ash alleges she and Monty had a five-month affair.
In an interview with Page Six on July 7, 25-year-old influencer Renée Ash says that she had been dating Monty under the assumption his marriage was "over." The pair were introduced through mutual friends in March 2022. She said, "Unfortunately, he misled me on his marriage; he lied to me."
The pair were reportedly so serious that, "He even introduced me to his mom, his youngest brother, and I thought we had something real. He told me a story of his marriage that convinced me that they were apart and in the process of getting a divorce." However, Renée alleges she broke up with Monty on July 7, just as the TikTok videos of him started to circulate.
"If anybody was hurting, it was me and his family. I am beyond sorry for that. I loved him and I believed him. When I found out about the other young girls, my heart broke," Renée said.
The text screenshots Renée shared with Page Six were extremely revealing; in some, Monty talks excessively about planning a family with her, and in others, he warns Renée not to act like Sheri, who Monty alleges he left for "bitching" and "f--king with" him. Monty has not commented on the new allegations.
