Addison Rae’s name has been tied to a number of controversies over the last month. Mainly, though, her dad’s.

Several women have alleged Monty Lopez made advances on them while reportedly still married, with one 25-year-old claiming a full-blown affair. Just when you thought the hype had started to die down, YouTube star Tana Mongeau has spoken out with some claims of her own.

So, why is Tana Mongeau “feuding” with Monty Lopez? And what does this have to do with Addison Rae?
