You probably didn’t have this one on your 2022 bingo card: rapper Yung Gravy has slammed Addison Rae’s father, Monty Lopez – who is caught up in a cheating scandal – as an “embarrassment” after he challenged the musician to face him in a boxing match.
Why did Monty want to fight Yung Gravy? Well, there’s quite a back story to this one.
In July, Addison Rae’s dad, Monty Lopez, 46, made headlines amid cheating allegations in which 25-year-old influencer Renée Ash claimed that she and Monty had been in a five-month relationship.
Renée claimed that Monty told her that he had split from wife Sheri Easterling and they were in the process of divorcing. “Unfortunately, he misled me on his marriage, he lied to me,” she exclaimed in July. “He told me that we were going to be together and have babies together.” It was around this time that Sheri broke up with Monty.
Now, the plot thickens, as Addison’s mum, Sheri, has struck up a flirty relationship with 26-year-old rapper Yung Gravy
In July, Yung Gravy appeared on Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards and Brianna Chickenfry’s podcast, BFFs, where he seemingly spilled the tea about his budding romance with Addison’s mum. According to BuzzFeed, Yung Gravy was asked about his “MILF thing” in reference to his lyrics that often centre around older women (he even has a song titled “Martha Stewart”, named after the 81-year-old businesswoman.)
When the topic of Sheri came up, Yung Gravy responded by saying, “She was DM’ing me at one point… I started showing some love back and, you know, now we’re just being cute. Ya know. Making videos back and forth, sending wholesome DMs — it’s cute.”
The pair have indeed been posting flirty videos, posting them to TikTok and Instagram and gaining millions of views. One video, in particular, shows Sheri’s interest in dating Yung Gravy, noting that her preferred date would be having a picnic in the park.
