Yung Gravy has defended Addison Rae’s mother Sheri Easterling and told fans to “leave her alone” amid the drama after the couple kissed on the red carpet.
The 26-year-old rapper jumped to the rescue of 42-year-old Sheri after she shared a hickey with Yung Gravy with raised eyebrows at the MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, NJ last Sunday.
Sheri is recently single after splitting from Monty Lopez, with whom she shares social media star daughter Addison and sons Lucas, 8, and Enzo, 14.

And her steamy kiss with Yung Gravy created more drama, with Monty, 46, even taking a swipe at his ex on social media.
But Yung Gravy has defended Sheri amid the backlash, taking to Twitter on Monday to tell fans to “leave her alone” because she’s just “living her life.”
His comments came in response to a tweet about her VMAs smooch, which read: “We wouldn’t want to be Addison Rae today.
“Sheri is causing quite a stir on the internet after attending the VMAs as Yung Gravy’s date and showing off a ton of PDAs on the red carpet.”

Yung Gravy replied to the tweet, “She’s newly single and living her life. Leave her alone lol.’
It’s not the first time he’s opened up about his kiss with Sheri, who turns 43 this week, as he sheds more light on his love for older women at the MTV VMAs.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: “They are more experienced. They’re an underserved community, I would say, and they deserve more attention.’
With songs like Betty, a nod to the late Betty White, and Martha Stewart, a nod to the lifestyle personality, he’s never been shy about dating.

“I’ve noticed that since my music was released, people have really started paying more attention to MILFs,” he noted during a red carpet interview.
And as for why she finds the tall, handsome blonde attractive, Sheri admitted, “He’s very healthy.”
Sheri’s estranged partner Monty reacted to his estranged wife kissing the rapper on Sunday’s MTV VMAs red carpet.
He posted a shirtless selfie as he said he was “tired” of living a lie while accusing his ex of keeping him away from his daughter.

‘Happiness!’ wrote the 46-year-old former real estate manager on his Instagram Stories. “Thanks @youngravy for taking the leftovers!”
Monty added the hashtag ‘#tiredoflivinglie’ and said: ‘I’d rather spend time with my daughter and two grandkids that SheriNicole made me up to when I was a kid [sic] be with her! Never let a woman decide between her and/or your blood child!’
The estranged couple divorced when their daughter Addison was young and remarried in 2017 but have since split.
Addison is said to be “shamed” by the recent drama surrounding her parents Sheri and Monty, both of whom she unfollows on Instagram.

Smitten: As for why she finds Yung Gravy attractive, Sheri admitted, “He’s very healthy.”
“Addison has seen her parents go through many ups and downs over the years,” a source told Page Six on Tuesday. “But everything that’s been happening has been particularly overwhelming for her.”
The family drama began in July when a 25-year-old woman named Renée Ash told Page Six that Monty “misled her about his marriage” during their alleged five-month affair earlier this year.
Several women have also accused him of flirting with them on FaceTime and in person.
Sheri and Monty married in 2004, divorced a few years later, and started walking down the aisle again in 2014.

In addition to sharing Addison, 21, Enzo, 14, and Lucas, 8, Monty has also claimed paternity of Macye Neumeyer, who has two children of her own and appears to be the child Sheri allegedly forced him to abandon.
Sunday’s red carpet reveal marked Sheri’s first new relationship since their publicly announced split.
During a chat with MTV’s Nessa Diab, the Gravy Train artist revealed the two met online and detailed his connection to Sheri.
He said, “You know, I’m from the far north there is, and she’s from the far south there is. I’m into MILFs and she’s kind of the queen of MILFs, so I thought it would just be the perfect match.”
Sheri — who used to work in engineering before becoming an influencer like her daughter — gushed on her Instagram Stories on Monday, “Such an amazing time.”
