Addison Rae’s life ruined
By: Eric Tian
One of the most famous Tik Tok families is falling apart is being undone by tik tok, the platform that made them famous.
Addison Rae was the third most popular creator on Tik Tok, but Addison Rae didn’t start Tik Tok for fame, she did it because she didn’t get into the LSU cheerleading squad.
Videos posted to TikTok in recent weeks have sparked a media firestorm surrounding the family of 21-year-old Addison Rae, who has more than 88 million followers on the platform.
One of the videos appears to show Addison Rae's father, Monty Lopez, flirting with young women over FaceTime and touching one woman’s backside at a bar. Lopez has not addressed the videos and did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
Rae and her mom, Sheri Easterling, unfollowed Lopez on Instagram. Easterling also changed her Instagram bio to “single mom” and released a statement that said in part: “I will be okay. My biggest concern is -and always will be- my children and their fragile hearts and minds.”
Lopez wanted to grow Addison’s fame by launching their own agency for representing Tik Tok stars.
“He just kind of went off the rails and fame got to him,” one person in Lopez’s professional network said.
On social media, Lopez was a very good husband and did dances with his wife. They both wrote husband and wife on their bio until he cheated on her.
