Lala Kent sobs to Lisa Vanderpump about accusations against her ex-fiancé, Randall Emmett, during the upcoming season of “Vanderpump Rules.”
“What’s happening with Randall?” the restauranteur, 62, asks her distraught employee in Bravo’s newly released trailer for Season 10.
“I wanna know why people are accusing him of the things they’re accusing him of,” Kent, 32, responds through tears.
Though Kent -— who shares 1-year-old daughter Ocean with the movie producer — did not elaborate on the allegations, Emmett has been accused by four different people of being at the center of an FBI investigation for “suspected child exploitation and pedophilia.”
When news of the alleged probe broke last week, fans demanded to know why the 51-year-old filmmaker, who denied the existence of an investigation, still had “any custody” of his youngest child.
Kent explained to a concerned Instagram user, “If you haven’t dealt with the family court system you wouldn’t understand.”
Emmett is also dad to daughters London, 12, and Rylee, 9, whom he shares with ex-wife Ambyr Childers.
Childers is now seeking “sole legal and physical custody” of the girls “for a variety of reasons.”
The actress, 34, claimed in court documents filed late last month that her ex-husband “is being investigated by the FBI for suspected child exploitation and/or pedophilia.”
Emmett told Page Six last week, “I am not being investigated by the FBI nor anyone else, and the notion that I am is beyond absurd.”
He continued, “Anyone can say whatever they want in a pleading; that doesn’t make it true. There is zero evidence that I’m being investigated for anything, and we still share 50/50 custody of our children. I am shocked and in utter disbelief that Ambyr would even hint at something so disgusting and untrue.”
Emmett then shared an Instagram video reiterating those sentiments, insisting that his three minor children are “going to know their dad was a great father.”
An hour later, Kent cryptically posted via her Instagram Story, “Keep telling yourself whatever you need to to help you sleep at night. You’re seen.”
Childers claimed in her filing that she learned of the alleged investigation in early December 2022 when she “was contacted by a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation asking [her] questions about [Emmett’s] suspected activities with child exploitation and pedophilia.”
The Los Angeles Times reported they spoke to three additional individuals who claimed the FBI contacted them about Emmett’s activities as well.
