Alex Wennberg’s wife, Felicia Wennberg, is the center of the ongoing BookTok controversy. The former model tied the knot with the NHL player in 2022.
Felicia’s love for Alex began in 2013, but it wasn’t until 2017 that the two began dating. In 2021, the couple welcomed their son Rio into the world, and a few months later, they tied the knot in their birthplace, Sweden.
Felicia and Alex look like a perfect match and are a gorgeous-looking couple. In many of her posts, Felicia has made remarks about her man’s beauty, and it doesn’t look like it’s only Felicia who finds her man handsome.
In TikTok’s BookTok community, Alex has become the antagonist of several romance novels. And the latest controversy surrounding the couple stems from it.
Several other NHL players like Alex are made into a leading men of these novels, which fans write to fulfill their fantasies. But it looks like these fantasies might have gone a little too far for the Wennberg family’s liking.

Alex And Felicia TikTok Controversy Explained
Alex and Felicia’s TikTok or BookTok controversy has gripped the entire social media community.
If you don’t know what BookTok is then it’s a popular hashtag used by content creators on TikTok to review and talk about books.
And on BookTok, there is a subset dedicated to writing romantic novels about hockey players, and one such book was dedicated to Alex.
At first, everyone seemed to be okay with it. Even Alex’s team, Seattle Kraken’s TikTok handle even promoting these books. They even changed their TikTok handle to “mostly booktok.”
The team went as far as inviting a BookTok creator Kierra Lewis to a Stanley Cup playoff game. Previously, Kierra had made sexual comments about Alex in her now-deleted TikTok video.
Felicia also played along with it at the beginning, but at the end of July, the spouse had enough of it. Felicia shared a series of Instagram stories asking fans to stop posting sexualized content about her husband.
She said the public lust was getting out of control as some posts had turned into sexual harassment.
In her Instagram story, Felicia wrote, “What doesn’t sit with me is when your desires come with sexual harassment, inappropriate comments, and the fact that with the internet, we can normalize behavior that would never be okay if we flipped the genders around to a guy doing this to a female athlete.”
On July 28, Alex released a statement saying the social media users had crossed the line and were leaving vile comments on his wife’s social media handle. He also shared some of them were targeting their son Rio.
The Wennberg family’s fight against the BookTok community has left many on TikTok divided. Some have said Felicia is right to defend her husband, but some have called her insecure.
Some fans have supported Kiera Lewis, whereas some have said she doesn’t represent the community. This controversy teaches people not to be too obsessed with their parasocial relationships.
