TikTok star Tony Lopez is being accused of sexual battery and emotional distress by two minors.
ET reports that Tony, a member of the Hype House, has been named in a lawsuit by two underage girls who allege they were “lured, persuaded, coerced and groomed to either engage in physical sexual acts and/or send illicit and obscene child pornographic images of themselves.”

Both plaintiffs claim that Tony knew they were minors at the time. The two women are also suing Thomas Petrou and Chase Hudson, founding members of the Hype House, for negligence.
Tony denied the accusations in a statement to TMZ: “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.”
He also added, “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.”
In August it was revealed the Hype House would be releasing their own reality TV series – click here to find out what it’s about.
