Broadway Star Alice Ripley Groomed A Fan?


A claim has been made online against Alice Ripley, who is known for the Tony Award-winning musical Next to Normal, about allegedly grooming an underage fan.

It was a TikTok user named @lovelyleobrie otherwise known as Brie Lynn, who called out the Broadway star for what she did to her when she was as young as 12 years old.

The video was uploaded on Thursday and features at least six photos of her and Ripley. It had over 1.3 million views by Monday Evening.

The video stars, with Lynn lip-syncing the words to Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever,” while the narration of story appeared, “Growing up is realizing I was groomed by a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress.”

She then goes on to her list of disturbing claims that had happened about their affirmed “relationship” at that point.

“Our first conversation was about a photo of you in lingerie… I was TWELVE & when I was THIRTEEN you told me that the first time we locked eyes you felt like the world stopped.”

She also claimed that the American actress was having constant interactions with her while talking sh*t about her behind her back, and one of her crazy fans attempted to kill her. Ripley didn’t try to save her, rather she just left Brie.

“I’ve spent 10 years trying to convince myself it didn’t happen, that I was in the wrong,” the victim proceeds. “You separated me from all of the friends I had made & you made me HATE the Broadway community I once loved.”

She finished the video by saying that she never told anybody however, now she knew she was never the problem since she was a kid at that time.

Alice Ripley denied grooming claims as per her meeting with Page Six on Monday. “Recently, a claim has been made online against me. There’s absolutely no validity to any of it. I appreciate everyone’s continued support.”
