After accusations emerged that 21-year-old TikTok star Tony Lopez had sent inappropriate messages to girls as young as 15 via a private Snapchat account, he has issued an apology that is suggested to address those claims, though people are slamming it for being too “vague.”

In August, several teenage victims came forward via social media with screenshots and recordings that appeared to show Hype House member Tony Lopez sending inappropriate messages. To one 15-year-old he allegedly said “your face is kissable” and to another girl sent extremely explicit messages.

On August 9, Tony tweeted “I’ve got a lot to talk about” which many took as a sign that an apology was to come.

The 21-year-old went quiet on Twitter for several days throughout the height of the internet storm, with many anticipating his return.

When he returned to Twitter, he didn’t come back with the apology that people were expecting. He posted about his daily life with tweets such as “I ate too much food today.” People demanded that he “address” the allegations and apologize.

That apology finally came on August 22 when Tony took to Twitter with a note-section-screenshot paragraph about “recent accusations.” He said “I am not proud of my past choices” and that “I’m truly disappointed in myself for them.”

Lopez consistently refers to the alleged harassment as “these actions,” but does not refer to the nature of the accusations themselves. He blames being “new to the entertainment/ LA scene” and that “you can’t believe everything you’re told.” Tony insists he will “learn” from his mistakes and make “better, well-informed decisions.”

People were unsatisfied with the delayed apology, citing it as being “vague” and failing to address the claims head-on. Many felt the format of the “notes app apology” was inherently insincere.

It’s yet unclear whether Tony Lopez will make a more direct address of the specific allegations in the future or respond to the raft of criticism that has been sent his way.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
