Last week's MTV VMA's brought us some iconic pop culture moments - from Taylor Swift's album announcement to the Jack Harlow and Fergie duet. However, it was a certain red carpet debut that had everyone talking - the debut of Addison Rae's mom, Sheri Nicole, and her new guy, Yung Gravy! While the most loyal TikTok culture followers might have seen this move coming, others were left confused by the entire thing. Who or what is a Yung Gravy, and how did this relationship come about? We're breaking it all down from the very beginning. Strap yourselves in, folks - it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
"Shout-out to all the mothers out there," Yung Gravy shouted during his VMA pre-show performance. Soon, we learned that this dedication was to one specific mother, that of the TikTok phenomenon, Addison Rae. The gasps were audible as the 26-year-old rapper, and the 42-year-old mother of three walked down the red carpet in matching lavender attire. For many, this was the epic next move in the dramatic family saga we've witnessed for the past few months. After Addison brought her family into the spotlight with her as part of the Snapchat reality show series about her life, they've proven to be just as newsworthy as her...
After cheating allegations surrounded her then-husband, Monty Lopez, Sherri left the 46-year-old. From then on, Yung Gravy made it publicly clear that he had his eyes on the TikTok mom. But it wasn't a one-sided flirtation; Easterling was following the rapper on TikTok too. Within days, the two were flirtatiously commenting on each other's videos. On the Jeff FM podcast, Gravy told the audience he would be taking Sherri on a date soon, taking the relationship beyond TikTok. "We've talked - we keep in touch. I've texted a little bit every day," he admitted.
"We met online, and we connected right away," Gravy spilled in a red carpet interview. "You know, I'm from the farthest north it gets, and she's from the farthest south it gets. I'm into MILFs, and she's kind of the queen of MILFs, so I figured it was just the perfect match." As for Sherri? "I am super excited and... I'm just happy," she added. What's next for the official couple? Safe to say, you don't want to go anywhere. Stay tuned.
