Explore Lala Kent's exciting, albeit, controversial dating history: The television personality is a mother to one!
Known for her long-going stint on Bravo's hit reality series Vanderpump Rules, Lala Kent is a television personality, model, actress, and businesswoman. Kent's acting credits include The Row, Valut, Spree, Axis Sally, and Out of Death.
But more than her film and television career, Lala is better recognized for her slew of controversies. Born on September 2, 1990, in Salt Lake City, Utah, Lala's journey into showbiz began with minor roles in films and music videos. A recurring cast member spot on the Bravo reality series catapulted her to become a main member, and ultimately, a drama-inducing household face.
Lala Kent was Engaged to Randall Emmett!
Not much about Kent's personal life is a secret and her tumultuous relationship with producer Randall Emmett proves just that. The actress and Randall were embroiled in a high-profile romance that looked destined at first but the impending disaster unveiled itself eventually. The duo first crossed paths through work in 2015.
Fast forward to early 2017, Lala confirms she is a mystery man. "We are very much in a relationship still," says the ever-forthcoming television star while keeping her beau's name discreet. It was later revealed that the duo only kept it low-key because of Randall's divorce proceeding with his first wife, actress Ambyr Childers, with whom he shares two daughters.
There was nothing standing in the love birds' way once Emmett finalized his divorce in December 2017. The smitten pair shortly made their relationship official and began a journey so candid that was almost susceptible to intense media exposure. The couple confirmed their engagement in September 2018.
Gushing about the dreamy proposal, the Vanderpump Rules star revealed that her then-beau got down on his knees on her 28th birthday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. "I keep looking down at my ring finger. I'm just so happy to say we are officially engaged," Lala shared. The newly engaged even scheduled their wedding date for April 18, 2020.
Besides Kent's regular updates on their relationship, the Bravo show also gave viewers some access to their fast-moving romance. The first sign of trouble in their paradise popped up when the pair postponed their wedding in early 2020.
Kent and Randall called it quits amid Randall's cheating scandals!
The blame was, of course, placed upon the pandemic and the unprecedented situation, but soon followed a cheating rumor, on Emmett's part, that didn't look pretty on the couple's cemented joint image. Refuting the swirling speculations, Lala said, "I have this dude's name tattooed on my arm. He's stuck with me."
The Vanderpump Rules couple welcomed a daughter, Ocean, in early 2021 and shared their intentions to get married in 2022. It didn't take long for things to go downhill and by late 2021, Kent and Randall had called it quits amid Emmett's cheating scandal. Both parties have since dished on their split and even shaded each other.
Kent's ex-fiance even became a subject of a critical investigation and Hulu's documentary, The Randall Scandal: Love, Loathing, and Vanderpump, which uncovered the number of allegations against the producer, including the allegations that he had offered roles in exchange for sexual favors.
"My heart goes out to all of his victims, even those who have not shared their stories yet," the Give Them Lala Skin founder said amid the documentary's release. It is no surprise that Kent has no interest whatsoever to stay in touch with Emmett, who she called "not fit" to parent their daughter.
Explore Lala Kent's Dating History!
The television star-turned-beauty mogul has been keeping it candid since the start. Lala has weathered many ups and downs in her love life and as the mother of one continues her journey to find the one, here are all the men she dated in the past. In her memoir, Give Them Lala, Kent reveals that she lost her virginity to a high school boyfriend named Johnny.
Before rising to fame as a multi-hyphenated figure, Kent even romanced football player Carter Hoffman. Although the timeline of the pair's relationship remains unknown, Kent alluded to a pretty serious stint with Carter. The Vanderpump Rules fame shares that she even conceived a child from the relationship but made the tough decision to abort it.
After Kent joined the Bravo show in 2014, the Utah-born beauty fuelled romance rumors with her fellow castmate, James Kennedy. The Give Them Lala Skin founder only confirmed the speculation earlier this year. Kent confessed to hooking up with Kennedy before he started dating another Bravo member, Raquel Leviss.
Since her scandalous split from Emmett, Lala has adopted a new approach to her dating life. "You won't see me, like, dating, but you'll see the dude who I hooked up [with]," the Out of Death actress said. Kent revealed her fling with a model named Don Lopez. "[He was] the first boy I slept with since my last relationship. Which was very weird," said the mother of one.
