Two Teens Have Accused Hype House’s Tony Lopez of Sexual Abuse


TikTok star Tony Lopez has been accused of sexual abuse and soliciting nude photos from underage girls in a lawsuit filed on behalf of two anonymous teens.

According to court documents, Lopez, a member of the TikTok group Hype House, is being sued on two counts of sexual abuse by two teens who allege they were 15 and 16 when a then 20-year-old Lopez “lured, persuaded, coerced, and groomed” them into either sexual relationships or to send inappropriate photos. The girls, identified only as H.L. Doe and C.H. Doe, allege in the lawsuit that Lopez used his influencer fame to lure them into illegal and damaging scenarios. Lopez has denied the allegations.

The lawsuit alleges that H.L Doe began communicating with Lopez via text and social media on January 3, 2020, telling him at the time that she was 16 years old. On January 4, and again on January 19, the lawsuit alleges the two engaged in illegal sexual acts, which Doe could not consent to because of her age. After the January 4 encounter, Doe revealed to Lopez that she was actually 15. During their January 19 encounter, Lopez allegedly told Doe not to take photos of him because he didn’t want to be documented with an underaged girl, according to the suit.

C.H. Doe allegedly met Lopez on April 14, 2020, after she was invited to the Hype House, according to the suit. The pair texted after meeting, and then started trading messages on Snapchat, court documents say. The communications escalated, and the lawsuit accuses of Lopez of soliciting nude photos of Doe (who he allegedly acknowledged was only 16) and asking her to sneak out of her house to engage in sex.

Tony Lopez denied the allegations in a statement to BuzzFeed News. Teen Vogue has reached out to Lopez for comment, but has not heard back as of press time.

“These allegations are not at all true. I never sent nudes to these women and didn’t ask them to send me pictures either. And, I certainly wouldn’t have sex with someone who told me they were underage,” Lopez said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News via his manager. “This whole thing seems like a money grab to me. I’m going to fight it to the very end. I will not allow them to continue to slander my name and attack my character.”

The lawsuit alleges that Lopez knew the teens in question were underage, and made mention of one’s age on various occasions. 

This isn’t the first time Lopez has been accused of misconduct. According to the lawsuit, Tony has faced “similar claims” in the past. At the time, Lopez posted a statement to social media and did not deny the allegations, saying only that he stopped once he “learned the truth.”
