The breakup between Lala Kent and Randall Emmett just took a dark turn. Previous revelations made by the Vanderpump Rules star painted a picture of a controlling narcissist. But Lala’s latest confession goes even further and alleges that he got physical with her during an altercation.
As reported by Page Six, Lala was interviewed by the Los Angeles Times for the explosive new exposé on Randall. According to Lala, when she confronted him about cheating allegations and tried to grab his phone, he tackled her. Lala revealed, “He ran after me, tackled me and knocked me to the ground. I used every ounce of strength to get him off of me as he was trying to pry it from my hands.” She added, “That was when I knew, for sure, that there was a lot he was hiding.” The outlet noted that five people confirmed that Lala had told them about the confrontation.
Lala and Randall became engaged in 2018 and ended up breaking up amid cheating rumors in October of 2021. After photos of Randall out in Nashville with multiple women surfaced, Lala quickly moved out. She also quickly deleted all of her pictures of him on social media.
For his part, Randall has denied that things ever got physical with Lala. His rep told the LA Times, “These allegations are false and part of a now-familiar smear campaign orchestrated by Randall’s ex-fiancée to sway their custody dispute. Lala Kent has lied and manipulated others in her desperate attempt to win full custody of her daughter, keep her name in the press, and remain relevant in reality television.”
Randall’s team also came to his defense by giving the publication a declaration from his nanny. She claimed that neither party was “on the ground” during the fight. His nanny stated, “I witnessed Randall and Lala fighting over his phone. The only physical interaction I saw was Randall taking back his phone from Lala.”
The couple share daughter Ocean Kent Emmett, who was born in March of 2021. Since the split, Lala has made it clear that she doesn’t wish to have any communication with Randall. She previously stated that they only communicate through a parenting app.
Lala told host Jeff Lewis on his SiriusXM show back in May that Randall once didn’t let her leave the house with Ocean for 12 days. She claimed, “He would threaten to call the police on me if I didn’t return her, and he would give me time periods that I could take her.”
Lala called the experience “horrific” and went on to say, “I don’t think he knew I was leaving. I think he needed to regain control of me.” Randall has denied that accusation as well with a statement from his rep. She asserted, “These claims are completely fabricated, and it’s disappointing that Lala continues to make up stories eight months after their breakup.”
The piece also accused Randall, a longtime Hollywood producer, of fraud and propositioning people for sex. He’s also been plagued with multiple lawsuits. A $10 million lawsuit against him is over an alleged unpaid loan on a film he produced. Another suit accuses him of “conspiracy to defraud” after going over budget on a film. Yet another production company slapped Randall with a suit for unpaid loans on a film that is still in production.
In 2021, he tried to get his child support for his two daughters from his previous marriage reduced. Court documents reveal that Randall owes approximately $500k to the IRS. His lawyer argued, “If Randall was forced to continue making these deposits,” that he’ll “fall deeper and deeper into debt and will be forced to file for bankruptcy.”
