Who is Renée Ash? Addison Rae's dad Monty Lopez 'MISLED' 25-year-old into having affair
Monty Lopez, the father of Addison Rae, has been accused by a 25-year-old woman of "misleading" her into having an affair with him. Renee Ash has claimed the 46-year-old had a five-month relationship with her. Ash claimed, in an interview with Page Six, that Lopez misled her into thinking that their purported connection was important to him. Ash and Lopez met in March through a mutual friend and started dating soon after.
Ash is also allegeing that Lopez misled her about the status of his marriage to his wife Sheri Easterling. Ash claimed Rae's dad made her believe that she and the 46-year-old were going to be together and have babies. According to Ash, Lopez had introduced her to his mother and his youngest brother, leading her to believe what they had was real. Lopez even told Ash a tale of his marriage that seemed to convince her that Sheri and Lopez would soon be filing for a divorce.
Ash said she ended things with Lopez after some young women accused him of hitting on them in person and via FaceTime. She knew it was finally over when she came across a leaked video of Lopez reportedly touching a 19-year-old girl's butt at a party. The now-deleted viral clip by TikTok user @marlig_ shows someone who looks like Lopez coming up behind a young girl and touching her butt.
She captioned the video: "Addison Rae’s dad is trying to f—k me, I swear to God".
Ash apologised for any hurt she might have caused to Lopez's family any more than Lopez already had. His family includes his wife Sheri, daughter Addison Rae and sons Lucas and Enzo. She said that if anyone was affected by this, it would be her and his family.
“I loved him and I believed him. When I found out about the other young girls, my heart broke,” said Ash.
According to some screenshots of messages that Ash shared with Page Six, Lopez allegedly boasted that he and Ash were a power couple. He made promises to her about living with her, getting married and raising a family. Lopez also said that he had a "weird relationship" with his wife and that what he and Ash had was something completely different.
After an alleged pregnancy scare in mid-June, the couple was on the verge of breaking up. As per the screenshots, Ash got two positive pregnancy results and Lopez "handled" it "really poorly". Ash mentioned that Lopez kept blowing her off. When Ash's blood tests came back negative, she attempted to end their relationship. But Lopez began texting her nonstop, and they reconciled.
Lopez and Ash reportedly discussed having children together, according to the screenshots. Lopez allegedly told her that they will have "great kids together", but when Ash asked him when he would reveal their relationship to his current children, he completely disregarded it. He said that having more kids would be great but unnecessary.
By all accounts, Ash wanted to take this relationship public but Lopez kept stalling. She became wary of hiding it, as showed by the texts she sent. A particular text shows that Lopez was going to get an offer from a producer for some TV deal. He then wrote, "Then we can get paid to run around"
As per the interview with Page Six, Ash feels blessed to have finally gotten out of that relationship. She hopes by sharing her experience, other girls would avoid her ex. “Addison and Sheri don’t deserve this and neither do the other girls he’s disrespected. I hope telling my story sheds light on a man who has gotten away with their power in the industry for too long," she said.
Ash publicly revealed the truth through the interview with Page Six and shared it on her Instagram story. She uploaded two additional stories addressing this matter. "None of it feels real," she said on her Instagram. "To those who are understanding of the situation and actually comprehend the truth of my statement, I'm sorry I can't get to you all to thank you, there's too much hate in my dms," she added with a purple heart emoji.
Rae unfollowed her dad on Instagram after this incident, and Lopez's wife changed her Instagram bio to omit the term "wife." Still listed on Lopez's bio is the phrase "Husband to @sherinicole."
