Here’s how Addison Rae reportedly feels about her parents’ public relationship drama

It’s pretty common for kids to get embarrassed by their parents, but TikTok star Addison Rae’s parents are giving other adults a race for their money. The family drama came to a head in July when Page Six broke the news of Rae’s father Monty Lopez’s affair with a 25-year-old woman named Renée Ash. “Unfortunately he misled me at his wedding,” Ash explained. “He told me that we would be together and that we would have babies together … He told me a story about his marriage that convinced me they were going through a divorce.” People would later confirm that Lopez and his wife Sheri Easterling were actually no longer together. When Easterling found out about the affair, she released her own social media statement (via Page Six), which ranked her children as her priority. As for Rae, she didn’t tackle the messy affair head-on, instead throwing herself into feel-good activities like Pilates.

August brought a whole new wave of drama. The VMAs are known for their potential to shock viewers — whether it’s Miley Cyrus’ twerk being heard around the world or Lil Nas’ choice of headwear — but Easterling jumped at the opportunity to show off her new Friend to perform: rapper Yung Gravy. The couple promptly sent the internet (and Lopez) into meltdown mode by making out on the VMAs carpet. Rae was noticeably absent from the event, but new reports are emerging showing what she really thinks about her mother’s PDA swap with Gravy.

Addison Rae hasn’t spoken publicly about her mother’s budding romance with a man 17 years her junior, but sources close to the star say she’s not happy about it. “At this point Addison is embarrassed by her parents and trying to keep her distance from them. She tries to keep her feet on the ground and focus on the projects she is working on. She doesn’t want them to affect her future,” an insider told ET. After her dad Monty Lopez’s shirtless dance moves on Instagram, Rae even stopped following both of her parents on social media.

“Addison has seen her parents go through many ups and downs over the years, but everything that’s happening right now has been particularly overwhelming for her,” another source told Page Six. That was clear even before Easterling dropped out with Yung Gravy. In July, Rae cryptically admitted to “fighting” on Twitter and canceled a press day. Still, ET reports that she’s doing her best to ignore the drama.

Another star determined not to let the haters get to her? yung sauce. The rapper told ET that he’s “not worried” about the fallout from his romance with Easterling. Instead, he spoke openly about his fondness for older women. “[MILFs are] more experienced. I would like to say that they are an underserved community and they deserve more attention,” he said of his decision to bring Easterling to the VMAs as his date.
