In another statement given to PEOPLE, Emmett’s spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister, revealed that he “staunchly denies the allegations dating back to 2012,” in Allred’s reference.

This surprisingly shocking letter by Allred reportedly said her ‘client’ even complied with his requests to “further her career” and claimed that he didn’t want to “anger an important producer in the industry,” as per the Times.

Emmett has reportedly signed a settlement with one of Allred’s clients that had earlier agreed to pay her about $200,000 for over two years, as per the Times. However, the producer has completely shunned this, as reported by The Times.

These stunning accusations come around a year after Vanderpump Rules reality star Lala Kent and Emmett called off their engagement in October, after the two even welcomed daughter Ocean, amid shocking cheating allegations from Kent.

As revealed by Hofmeister to PEOPLE, “The allegations in the Los Angeles Times story are false and part of a now-familiar smear campaign orchestrated by Randall’s ex-fiancée to sway their custody dispute.”

“Lala Kent has lied and manipulated others in her desperate attempt to win full custody of their daughter, keep her name in the press and remain relevant in reality television,” Hofmeister added.

Randall Emmett has been serving as a Hollywood producer since years and has worked on various movies like 2006’s The Wicker Man (2006), and Midnight in the Switchgrass (2021), which was also helmed by him. Emmett is also a frequent collaborator with star Bruce Willis, who starred alongside him in Midnight in the Switchgrass.
