Lala Kent’s Hollywood producer ex Randall Emmett has been accused of offering women roles in movies in exchange for sex, amid other claims of sexual misconduct, in an expansive latest report published Thursday.
In a bit from the Los Angeles Times, the 51-year-old producer is implicated of sexual misconduct along with unethical business practices marked by debt and expanded litigation.
Lawyer Gloria Allred said in an October 5, 2021 letter the Times acquired that she’s representing a girl who said that when she was 23, Emmett made clear ‘that to receive acting work from [him], she would need to perform sexual favors.’

The girl, who didn’t reveal her name out of fear of repercussions, said that she once asked Emmett in a text message if she had received a job she tried out for, and he wrote back, ‘Yes. in the future of labor and u must f*** me hun.’
Within the letter Allred released, the girl said that she appeared in a pair of movies Emmett had produced, and had massaged him, performed oral sex on him and let him engage in digital penetration on her, also posing naked in his office while he masturbated.
The girl said that she did so because she had been ‘looking for to further her profession’ and was afraid of upsetting ‘a vital producer within the industry.’
Emmett, via spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister, acknowledged he got the letter from Allred and ‘staunchly denies the allegations dating back to 2012.’

Emmett had come to a $200,000 settlement with the girl on January 2, the paper reported, adding that the quantity was to be paid over a two-year period.
A separate woman from Las Vegas who’s 30 years old said that Emmett began sending her ‘unsolicited’ Instagram DMs earlier this 12 months, in court documents linked to his custody case with ex-fiancée Lala Kent, 31, in response to the paper. The girl said that that Emmett, whom she never met, had sexually propositioned her and asked her to make use of illegal narcotics with him.
The girl told the court that she was ‘shocked, concerned and afraid’ because Emmett was ‘a stranger to’ her, and remained persistent ‘despite my never responding to a single message.’
Hofmeister, who has past represented disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, said that Emmett has maintained sobriety for nearly and 12 months and has drug tests proving so.
‘This allegation conveniently arose in his custody proceeding with Lala, who could provide no forensic proof that these texts weren’t spoofed using one among many apps,’ Hofmeister told Page Six, adding Emmett ‘provided the Times with unimpeachable proof that he had tested negative for drugs during this era and continues to be drug-free.’

A 3rd woman told the Times under condition of anonymity that she was leaving a bar in 2014 when Emmett told her, ‘I’m not a creep, I promise. I’m a movie producer, you may Google me — please Google me.’
Emmett denied to the paper allegations he would have the ladies comply with nondisclosure agreements to maintain their relations under wraps, and had emailed his attorney to wire the ladies money to stay silent about their interactions.
Emmett was accused within the LA Times article of offering $20,000 to a model in Florida to not discuss about their sexual relationship. Hofmeister told Page Six that ‘because the Times acknowledged, there may be zero proof that Randall paid her any money to sign an NDA’ and ‘the truth is, she said just the other.’
Kent told the paper that Emmett tried to supply her $14,000 once they began dating during a timeframe he was wed to actress Ambyr Childers. Hofmeister said the allegations were linked to their relationship being showcased on the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules, which she appeared on.
‘After 4 years of resistance,’ Hofmeister told Page Six, Emmett ‘finally agreed to seem since the producers had threatened to chop Lala’s contract if he didn’t.’

Within the Times article, Emmett was also accused of leaving a ‘lingering emotional toll’ on former employees amid a hostile work environment he presided over. Hofmeister said in response that Emmett ‘knows he could be demanding and expect the very best from his assistants, and regrets if he hurt any of their feelings.’
Emmett, via Hofmeister, denied the entire accusations within the article. Hofmeister told Page Six that the sexual misconduct allegation ‘stems from one allegation dating back from 2012 that Randall denies.’
Hofmeister told Page Six that Emmett attributes the ‘false’ allegations toward a ‘smear campaign orchestrated by’ Kent ‘to sway their custody dispute,’ adding that Kent ‘has lied and manipulated others in her desperate try and win full custody of her daughter, keep her name within the press and remain relevant in point of fact television.’
A source told Page Six that Kent ‘was a small a part of this whole story’ from the Times, which published the article quoting ‘many, many sources over many, many months of reporting.’
The source said that ‘the article is admittedly focused on Randall’s shady business practices for the last 10 years-plus’ supported by court documents, business records and interviews with dozens of individuals corroborating the claims.
