Tony was raised in Las Vegas alongside his brothers Xavier and Ondreaz, by their mother who is working at an insurance agency, and who has been featured in several of Tony’s videos, and their father who prefers to stay away from the media’s attention.
Tony attended a local elementary school at which he became interested in both football and soccer, but after enrolling at a high school, he learned that he wasn’t good enough to play for his school’s team. He practiced acting at a drama club, and often went to watch plays at a local theatre. At the age of 17 Tony started going to the gym, having several training sessions each week. He matriculated in 2017 and then didn’t enroll at a college but focus on his career on the internet.
Tony is also known for his and his brother Ondreaz’s YouTube channel – “Lopez Brothers” – which they launched on 29 October 2019, and which has already been subscribed to by nearly two million people, while the boys have gathered close to 50 million views of all their videos combined. They mostly upload test, challenge and prank videos, and their most popular as of October 2020 is “funny tik tok challenge (try not to laugh)”, having been viewed over 8.5 million times since 27 December 2019.
In July 2019, Tony was invited to serve as the host of a dance workshop organized in Las Vegas, and in December he joined the social group The Hype House, which was formed by the TikTok stars Daisy Keech, Chase Hudson, and Thomas Petrou among several others – The Hype House counted 21 members (all TikTok stars) in March 2020 before one of its founding members Daisy Keech left, and several others left as well, claiming that the house had become a business rather than a home.
Tony Lopez is also very active on Instagram, and there are over 7.3 million people following him, while he’s uploaded around 230 pictures onto his account.
Who is he dating, and is Tony Lopez gay?
There are many people on the internet who believe that Tony is gay, but after the controversy regarding Tony’s tweets about ‘straight TikTok’ and ‘gay TikTok’ ended, it was clear that the social media star is straight.
Even so, Tony prefers to keep his personal matters to himself, and hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated, but it’s widely believed that he was in a relationship with Addison Rae who is a dancer and a TikTok star, and that they dated for nearly a year before calling it quits for unknown reasons.
A month after their split, Tony started a relationship with Sofie Dossi who is a gymnast, actress and a social media star, but they separated after less than six months.
Tony hasn’t been seen with any girls since his split from Sofie, so it’s presumed that he is single today, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
