People have been informed by a source with close ties to the family of Addison Rae Easterling that the young woman’s parents, Monty Lopez and Sheri Nicole Easterling, have been living apart for a considerable time.
According to an exclusive statement made by the source to PEOPLE, “They have been living apart for a year.” Sheri and her three sons have been making their home in Louisiana. (The parents of the 21-year-old influencer also have kids named Enzo and Lucas, who are 8 and 14, respectively.)
The influencer Renée Ash, who is 25 years old and claims to have dated Lopez for five months, is the source of the rumor that the couple has broken up. Lopez is 46 years old. In addition, other posts that he has made on social media, including one that has since been deleted from TikTok, have shown him engaging in what appear to be flirtatious interactions with women who are roughly the same age as his daughter.
The Easterling-Lopez family and Renée’s representatives did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Page Six told Ash, “I was in love with him, and I trusted his word. My heart shattered into a million pieces when I learned about the other young girls.”
She continued, “I want to express my deepest apologies if whatever I have said has made the pain that he has caused his family any worse. In addition, I am sorry that he caused me such profound pain because I was under the impression that we were in love.”
Sheri appeared to respond to the affair claims by posting a cryptic remark on her Instagram Story shortly after the rumors were made public. “When things of a personal nature are dragged into the public eye, it may be difficult and overwhelming for anybody involved. I won’t have any problems, “she started off. “My children, with their tender brains and souls, are and will continue to be my primary concern.
I worry about them constantly. I promise to always give it my all in an effort to keep children safe, “said Sheri, 42. “My objective is to ensure that they have a sense of safety and security and that they know everything will be all right. I am grateful to each of you for your love, support, and expressions of kindness. It is quite important to me.”
Sheri and Monty divorced when their daughter Addison was still little, and Sheri married again in 2017. Because of this instability, the family moved about quite a bit, as she disclosed in an episode of the podcast that she and Sheri host together titled “That Was Fun?
Addison said to Sheri, “You were a single parent for a good several years,” and she meant it. “For me, around between the numbers 3 and 6… The amount of involvement that my father had in my life was little. I do not doubt that you and your dad made those conclusions alone. I’m sure you all have already determined that, like, “Hey, we’re going to need some space.” We can’t move forward until we have some space and time to think things out.”
