Lala Kent has a new man in her life – sort of.
Nearly a year after ending her engagement to film producer Randall Emmett, the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star is spending time with a famous former business partner with whom Emmett has publicly feuded.
In 2019, Emmett famously had a falling out with rapper 50 Cent over money, according to People. At the time, the two were working together as producers on the Starz drama Power, but Fifty claimed Emmett owed him $1 million and demanded immediate payment. 50 Cent made a series of posts on Instagram mocking Emmett and Kent and calling the VPR star a “hoe” before Emmett asked him to back off and eventually wired him the money.
According to Us Weekly, Kent addressed the feud at the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion. “There was a very public argument between me and a pretty famous rapper, and it got really bad,” she told host Andy Cohen. “Me and Randall and that rapper, we just don’t talk about each other.”
But the situation has changed a lot since that time. In late 2021, Kent shadowed Emmett by using the 50 Cent song “Hate It or Love It” in an Instagram post as she launched her “brand new” line of merch. Kent was also filmed dancing to 50 Cent’s Super Bowl halftime show with her daughter, Ocean, in February 2022, according to Us.
In June 2022, 50 Cent responded to a bombastic synopsis about Emmett published by the Los Angeles Times, which accused the producer of sexual misconduct on film sets. “See, that’s why I got him to give me my money until Monday. After that he had to stay 100 feet away from me,” 50 Cent wrote on social media, according to Complex.
Despite their former beef, everything seems to be going well between Kent and 50 Cent now. On Aug. 3, 2022, TMZ published photos of Kent hanging out with the rapper on the set of his upcoming horror film, Skill House.
The Bravo star was hugged by the “In Da Club” rapper while spending time with him at the Sway House in Los Angeles where he is working on the film. A source told TMZ that Kent was on set to visit Fifty “a number of times,” even though she wasn’t involved with the film at all.
50 Cent also addressed his past with Emmett — and Kent’s ongoing drama with her ex — after dating the Give Them Lala Beauty founder.
“Randell [sic] You better stop texting people who talk shit because I get nervous and you know how I get when I get nervous,” he captioned a montage of photos of him and Kent together.
It’s unclear how Kent and 50 Cent rekindled their friendship. The rapper has been in a relationship with model Jamira “Cuban Link” Haines since 2019, according to The Sun, but Kent once revealed her huge crush on the rapper. On an episode of Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast, Kent replied “F*** yes” when asked if she would ever consider dating 50 Cent.
“Let me tell you, when Fifty came out with his song ‘In Da Club,’ my biggest crush was on him,” Kent revealed. “I just thought he was the best he can be ever fall on the planet.”
“I don’t think 50 Cent would date Lala,” admitted the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star.
