TikTok sensation Addison Rae’s father Monty Lopez is gaining immense traction after videos of him cheating on his wife Sheri Easterling surfaced online. On July 4, 2022, two TikTok videos of the celebrity father allegedly flirting with two young women started making rounds on social media.

The videos come in the aftermath of speculations of a fallout between Rae and her father. On June 28, the 21-year-old TikTok star unfollowed her father on social media. Noticeably, Addison Rae’s mother Sheri Easterling unfollowed Monty Lopez and removed the word “wife” from her Instagram bio as well.

The videos sparked rumors of a drift between Rae's parents.

So far, however, none of the involved parties have confirmed that Lopez did cheat on his wife Sheri Easterling. No family member had addressed the cheating scandal at the time of writing this article. However, Easterling took to her official Twitter account on July 5 and wrote:

“I deserve happiness, peace, joy, hope, love, patience, kindness.”

Fans have been left wondering whether the tweet was in response to the viral videos.
