Cleye recently went on TikTok live to ask his followers if anyone would like to attend Taylor Swift‘s “The Eras Tour” concert in Los Angeles. A young TikTok creator named Olivia McCraw responded, and Cleye chimed in to let her know that he would have taken her to the concert had his daughter not decided to go with him. After this interaction, the pair allegedly began communicating through social media. Cleye is 58, and McCraw is 19 years old.

When the pair met up to film singing videos together, many viewers assumed they were dating, and were shocked and appalled at the age gap. Now, McCraw has come forward with allegations of misconduct and harassment against Cleye.


It took me a bit.. but with some messages grom him that were offensive, i decided to reveal my truth. I am Olivia McCraw and this is my story. Please know it is not ok for these things to happen. I have many reciepts and videos and am willing to share. I will not utilize slander. I will not hurt someone else. But i will not let someones “career” affect me from telling a TRUTH. I love you guys thanks for the support. #foryou #fyp #rodgercleye #rodgercleyeedit #music #hurt #rodgercleye

The Background

Cleye allegedly began blocking TikTok users who entered his livestreams to express concerns over McCraw. The TikTok creator previously had another age gap relationship with a woman in her 30s prior to his interactions with McCraw.

In McCraw’s video, she alleged that Cleye loudly announced that he had a vasectomy in the middle of a Texas Roadhouse to insinuate that she would not get pregnant if she slept with him. The pair filmed several singing videos together, and McCraw alleges that Cleye kissed her. He allegedly continued to pursue her romantically, and harassed her over text.


The text messages are allegedly to be released through McCraw’s collaboration with lacroixboi (@dantewelch659) on his YouTube channel. McCraw previously alleged that the messages were predatory and accusatory towards her after she rejected his physical advances. She also alleged that a family member of Cleye’s reached out to her and alleged that he “had a problem” and “needed help.”

Many were disturbed that Cleye would pursue such a young girl, despite its legal technicality.
