Lala Kent has been a Vanderpump Rules mainstay since she first appeared on the Bravo show back in Season 4. However, more recently she’s been known for her relationship with producer Randall Emmett, who finally made an appearance on Vanderpump Rules earlier in 2020. The two were supposed to get married this year, but with COVID-19 in full swing, they’ve postponed. Now, rapper 50 Cent seems to be shading the couple for the choice.
Wasn’t nobody going to this shit anyway.
The rapper also added a #bransoncognac and #abcforlife among others to the post, which is just an additional marketing layer on top of the shade he threw at the reality couple.
How Lala Kent’s Wedding Was Supposed To Happen
Originally, Lala Kent and Randall Emmett were set to be married on April 18. Kent had previously been open about not enjoying some aspects of wedding planning, such as registering for gifts.
However, the wedding was expected to be a big one, as Lala Kent previously said her partner wanted their nuptials “to be extravagant” and “gangster-chic.” Lisa Vanderpump, a huge reality star and celebrity in her own right, was expected to have a role in the wedding and her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright and Katie Maloney were all asked to be bridesmaids.
While the event was not set to be televised it was going to be a big deal and given the restrictions on large gatherings and the shelter-at-home orders going on throughout the country, it makes sense Lala Kent and Randall Emmett ultimately canceled.
Lala Kent and Randall Emmett have moved the date to July, telling Page Six:
We have decided to move the date of our wedding to July, given the unfortunate circumstances of what is going on. We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests.
So, Why Is 50 Cent Seemingly Invested In This Enough To Throw Shade?
This really all has to do with an ongoing feud between Curtis Jackson and Randall Emmett. The latter is a film and TV producer. He recently worked on The Irishman as a producer, but he’s also an executive producer on Starz’s popular series Power, which 50 Cent is also involved with.
In 2019, 50 Cent alleged Randall Emmett owed him a million dollars -- money the producer reportedly borrowed years prior to the feud and had failed to pay back. The feud was very big and very public at the time, and eventually Emmett paid up. At one point, it seemed the hatchet was buried, but now it looks like there are still some hurt feelings on the matter.
The feud has also been lucrative for 50 Cent, who made a bunch of t-shirts off of a “fofty” typo Emmett included in a text to the rapper.
So, it’s no surprise he threw a little shade out again at the news of these nuptials. Meanwhile, it’s probably pretty sad to have to cancel your wedding, so in this case, perhaps cutting the couple a break even if there is still beef is the better call.
In a February episode of Vanderpump Rules, it became clear that Lala Kent is still fairly sensitive about the situation when Lala grew irritated with James Kennedy for his own social media post that made light of the “Fofty” situation. So, it's still on her radar and likely doubly so given the recent comment by the rapper. We'll be sure to keep you updated as more develops on Lala Kent's wedding.
