If you’re not up to date with the drama surrounding Addison Rae’s parents, Sheri Nicole and Monty Lopez, buckle up. We’re about to give you the lowdown on exactly what’s been going on.
It all started when Addison Rae’s dad Monty Lopez made headlines in early July when he was allegedly spotted with a twenty-something brunette (AKA not his wife). The woman in question, 25-year-old model and influencer Renée Ash, then came forward and alleged that she'd had a five-month affair with him while he was still with Addison's mother Sheri Nicole Easterling.
From there, it has been a whirlwind of cheating allegations, boxing match demands and, of course, plenty of TikToks for good measure. From paparazzi sightings to that kiss on the MTV VMAs red carpet, here’s a complete timeline of the Sheri Nicole and Monty Lopez drama... so far.

Sheri and Yung Gravy made their relationship official with a make-out session on the VMAs red carpet. In a pre-show interview, Yung Gravy said that he connected with the 42-year-old right away after meeting online. "I’m into MILFs and she’s kind of the queen of MILFs, so I figured it was just a perfect match," he said.
Monty responded to the VMAs appearance with a salty Instagram Story. "Thank you @younggravy for taking the leftovers."

August 11th 2022: Monty Lopez challenges Yung Gravy to a boxing match
When it comes to social media drama in the 21st Century, it seems as though there’s one preferred method to settle differences — with a boxing match. In a now-removed video that breeched TikTok guidelines, Monty challenged Yung Gravy to join him in the ring, before expanding on his reasons in another clip.
"Yung Gravy needs to watch running his mouth talking about all those MILFs out there,” he started. “’cause all those MILFs got some baby daddies and some of those baby daddies are equally as bad as me.”
Monty went on to say that he’s worried about Addison’s two younger brothers, Enzo, 14, and Lucas, 8, getting “picked on” at school because "Yung Gravy wants to hook up with their mamma". “What I want them to do is to go to school and get praise because Yung Gravy’s about to get knocked down in the boxing ring by their daddy,” he added. “So be watching yourself, man."
Yung Gravy declined the offer, saying: "I'm a grown man. I'm not going to fight you over TikTok drama. You've got one of the most successful daughters in the world and you decide to act half her age to try to get some attention while embarrassing your whole family."

According to BuzzFeed, Yung Gravy was asked about his “MILF thing” in reference to his lyrics that often centre around older women.
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."
