On July 8, 2022, Addison Rae’s father, Monty Lopez, made headlines after a 25-year-old woman named Renée Ash revealed her alleged five-month affair with him.

According to reports, Ash was misled into believing that his marriage to his wife, Sheri Nicole Easterling, was over when it was not.

“He told me a story of his marriage that convinced me they were apart and in getting divorced. He told me we were going to be together and have babies,” she alleged.

Ash and Lopez started seeing each other in February, and despite the 20-year age gap, the former had no qualms as she was used to dating older men.

She eventually fell in love with the Bam Social entrepreneur and listened to him when he asked her to keep their relationship private and keep up with the “facade for bigger checks.”

But Ash was only a secret to the public. Lopez introduced her to his friends and his mother and brother as his girlfriend as their relationship progressed. 

However, she later learned he was being unfaithful after videos of him flirting with other women went viral.

After that, she spoke her truth in an exclusive tell-all interview with Page Six. She revealed everything about their relationship and apologized to Easterling and Rae. 

While doing so, it looks like some people on the internet villainized her and sent her hate messages and death threats. 

On July 21, 2022, Ash took to Instagram stories and shared all the death threats she received from netizens. 

In one of the messages, a woman named Courtney Lynn accused her of having an affair with a married man and breaking up a family.

“The entire world knew they were married from the start. You look stupid trying to lie your way out of it. Real women don’t break up families and sleep with married men. You are a disgusting female. You should be embarrassed of yourself,” wrote the woman. 

User Emily Thompson accused Ash of being obsessed with Lopez and clout chasing. 

“His daughter is one of the the well-known people ever. Dont say you didnt know anything even if this is real,” wrote Thompson. Some people even threatened to kill her and wished she was dead.

On July 22, 2022, Ash again took to Instagram stories and explained her reasons for sharing all the hate she received. “At first I was shocked and hurt and posted the negative comments I was receiving because I am an open and honest person."

She added she was growing and learning and also sharing the positive comment she received to improve not only her mental health but of other women as well.
