The “Vanderpump Rules” star spoke to the Los Angeles Times who published an exposé on the cheating scandal from her POV on Thursday, June 30.
Lala recalled the time when she confronted Emmett about his affair(s) in October 2021.
She ended things with her fiancé that same month.
Lala Exposes Randall’s Ballistic Behavior Around Cheating Scandal
The reality TV star claims her ex became so enraged when she went to grab his phone during the confrontation that he knocked her off her feet.
“He ran after me, tackled me and knocked me to the ground,” Lala claimed. “I used every ounce of strength to get him off of me as he was trying to pry it from my hands.”
Randall Allegedly TACKLED Lala For His Phone
This was a tell-tale moment for the ‘Vanderpump’ star.
“That was when I knew, for sure, that there was a lot he was hiding,” she revealed.
Lala had friends to confirm the story about her being tackled, five friends to be exact.
Emmett’s and his team denied that the physical fight occurred, as well as, denied accusations of fraud and soliciting people for sex.
“These allegations are false and part of a now-familiar smear campaign orchestrated by Randall’s ex-fiancée to sway their custody dispute,” Emmett’s rep, Sallie Hofmeister, told the Times. “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.”
Lala and Emmett share a one-year-old daughter, Ocean, together. They welcomed their bundle of joy in March 2020.

The filmmaker’s team also gave the LA Times a declaration from their nanny Isabelle Morales.
She alleged that neither Lala nor Emmett were “on the ground” during the incident.
“I witnessed Randall and Lala fighting over his phone,” Morales said. “The only physical interaction I saw was Randall taking back his phone from Lala.”
The couple has had a tumultuous fallout to say the least.
In March, Emmett accused Lala of making mistakes in their relationship as well.
Emmett sat down with his close friend Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi for her podcast, “Genuinely GG.”
He said, “I’ve made mistakes, she’s made mistakes, but I’m never going to bring that to light because that’s just not right.”
For Emmett, trash-talking his ex and airing their dirty laundry isn’t something he feels is necessary or appropriate.
Lala Said Being With Randall Was The “Worst Thing Ever”
“I can’t tell her what to do. She’s a strong woman, and I just hope that in time that kind of all mellows out,” Emmett told GG.
Kent accused Emmett of cheating on her repeatedly during the course of their relationship.
In fact, she went on the record saying he hooked up with a 23-year-old the same month she gave birth to their daughter.
She previously said that dating Emmett was the “worst thing to ever happen or come into her life.”
Earlier this year while appearing on “Watch What Happens Live,” a fan wrote into the show asking, “Is this the only time Randall cheated, or is it the only time he got caught.”
Lala responded, “No, this has been going on for quite some time. It’s been kind of repeated behavior that I have found out about, and it’s not just one person, it’s many. I believe it started after I got sober, and it’s just, I don’t know how I didn’t see it.”
