The woman who had an affair with TikTok star Addison Rae’s father says that she’s been receiving death threats on social media, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
‘It’s been horrible, I’ve been in hiding all week,’ she said, ‘People are sending me death threats on Instagram. I haven’t even checked TikTok, I’m sure they’re on there too.’
Ash, herself a social media influencer, said that she and Lopez started hanging out as friends, then ‘ended up falling in love.’
‘I don’t go for looks, I’m a personality person,’ she said, ‘This one was, like, very questionable for me.’
Ash had previously said that Lopez had conned her into the affair, claiming he told her his marriage to Rae’s mother, Sheri Nicole Easterling, 42, was over and that he wanted to start a new family.
Lopez has not commented on the situation.

Ash told DailyMail.com that Lopez started out ‘protective’ over her in the relationship, ‘and then it turned into very overbearing,’ saying he laid out jealous rules about her talking to other men that he didn’t uphold himself with other women.
‘He was doing a lot of stuff behind my back that he was telling me not to do,’ she said.
Ash said that she ‘was not in contact’ with Rae or her family, but that she would be open to speaking with them.
News of the affair led Easterling to change her Instagram bio to read ‘single mom,’ and to send out a defiantly independent tweet reading ‘That old version of you. Isn’t for you. New story. New version!’
‘I just feel bad for his family, I’m embarrassed myself, I can’t even imagine how they feel,’ Ash said.
‘I’d be open to a conversation with them. I just don’t want to disturb them any more than they’ve been disturbed,’ she added, ‘It’s been a nightmare for me, I can’t even imagine how they feel.’
Ash said that Lopez has been continually trying to get in touch with her since the affair broke.
‘He’s been calling me, I’m not answering,’ she said, ‘and I’m the one getting death threats. How ironic is that?’
Asked if she had any regrets about the affair, she responded in absolute terms.
‘I regret spending any second with him.’

Ash told Page Six she finally broke up with Lopez earlier following accusations that he was hitting on several women at a bar in an incident that was caught on camera.
Lopez, who boasts 5.4 million TikTok followers of his own, was seen in the viral clip grabbing a woman from behind and whispering in her ear.
‘Addison Rae’s dad is trying to f**k me, I swear to God,’ the young woman in the clip says as she then shows the scene play out.
Another since-deleted video features a young woman speaking to someone over the phone who urges her to FaceTime him. Although the man’s face is hard to make out in the dark, his voice resembles Lopez’s, and the woman alleges that it was him.
‘POV: When Addison Rae’s Dad FaceTimes you late night,’ she captioned the video.
Ash said the videos broke her heart, and that she regretted her relationship with him and the pain it has caused his family.
‘I am so sorry if anything I have said has hurt his family any more than he already has,’ Ash told Page Six. ‘And I am also sorry that he has hurt me so deeply that I believed we were in love.’

Ash said she called it off with Lopez following two incidents this week where young women accused the TikTok star of hitting on them. A woman showed off a recording of her alleged encounter with Lopez at a club (pictured) saying he wanted to have sex with her
Last week, Rae and Easterling unfollowed Lopez on social media. Lopez still has the two listed as his family on his bio.
Following news of the alleged affair, Easterling took to Instagram to say that she is doing okay and that her biggest concern now is the effect this will have on her children.
‘Personal matters being brought public are always challenging and overwhelming for anyone involved,’ Easterling wrote, ‘I will be okay.’
‘My biggest concern is – an always will be – my children and their fragile hearts and minds. I will always do my best to try to protect them.’
‘My goals is to make sure that they feel secure and safe and know that everything will be okay,’ she added.
Ash said she was heartbroken after Lopez was accused of hitting on multiple women this week
‘It’s been horrible, I’ve been in hiding all week,’ Ash said, ‘People are sending me death threats on Instagram. I haven’t even checked TikTok, I’m sure they’re on there too.’
Ash, herself a burgeoning Instagrammer, said that she and Lopez started hanging out as friends, then ‘ended up falling in love’
She told Page Six that she felt she had no support from Lopez after she believed she was pregnant last June, despite his alleged promises that he wanted to have kids with her.
‘You handled my pregnancy scare really poorly,’ she allegedly texted him after the fact.
‘I can’t handle… having two positive tests and [you] fully blowing me off. Especially after you kept saying I’ll never pull out [and] I want to marry you.’
The two had allegedly discussed having a family together while on a trip to southern France in May.
Although Ash said she was in love with Lopez, she started having doubts after he allegedly continued to refuse her pleas to go public with their relationship.
‘Addison and Sheri don’t deserve this and neither do the other girls he’s disrespected,’ Ash told Page Six, ‘I hope telling my story sheds light on a man who has gotten away with their power in the industry for too long.’
‘This has been going on in LA for too long and I just want to be the girl who is brave enough to tell the truth,’ she added.
