Jorge Lopez reveals he and his daughter Mayann went to shock therapy after TikTok screwed her upside down.

Jorge Lopez opened up the moment he learned he had to repair his relationship with his estranged daughter, Mayan.

The 61-year-old comedian, who is starring with his 26-year-old daughter in the new family comedy Lopez vs. Lopez, has reflected on their past struggles.

“I was divorced, and then I didn’t talk to the Maya for a long time,” Lopez recalled during his Wednesday appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

He continued, “I went on TikTok to respond to a video of someone attacking me. It was a video of her turning upside down.”

“I realized I’m not the best dad, but when your baby is upside down, you have some real problems. I didn’t realize it was that serious.”

After watching the clip, the actor said he realized he needed to “get out there” and reconnect with the Mayans. The “Tax Collector” star explained that the two started going to therapy together.

“You have to be responsible for the trauma that I caused,” Lopez said.

Lopez shares his only child with ex-wife Ann Serrano, 61, who donated one of her kidneys to him. In 2010, the former couple separated after 17 years together when Maya was 14 years old.

“I have, for the first time in my life, my responsibility to marriage and as a father,” he said.

He continued, “I said, ‘Yes, I’m responsible for this, and I’m going to spend the rest of my life fixing it.'”

Lopez joked that there was a particularly awkward part of the joint treatment experience.

“If you think the treatment is bad,” he said, “what’s worse than riding an elevator after that because it’s all heavy stuff.”

“You almost have to swing, like when you’re eating and you’re lunging, someone comes out behind, and someone comes out front. You don’t go in the same car when you do shock therapy.”

“This is the experience of a lifetime to be able to do this with my parents,” Mayan added.
