Lala Kent Fires Back After 50 Cent Accused ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star of Using Cocaine
Lala Kent and 50 Cent have been feuding on social media since the Vanderpump Rules star appeared on Watch What Happens Live. During the show, she rehashed her beef with the rapper after she claimed to have “dinged” his ego. The Power star then started flooding his Instagram feed with memes poking fun at Kent and her fiancé Randall Emmett.
Lala Kent denies drugs usage
After receiving heat from 50 Cent where he insinuated she was a drug abuser, Kent fired back at those claims and set the record straight.
“My sobriety is something I’m proud of and work on every day,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’ve never done cocaine nor were any other substances, other than alcohol, involved in my decision to get sober.”
“I pride myself on being open and honest about everything in my life, hopefully inspiring others and letting them know they are not alone,” she added.
Kent said she’s been receiving support from people who ask her how she’s able to take all the shade she’s been receiving.
“The past couple of days I’ve been slammed, to say the very least. People have asked me how I’m maintaining keeping my head up. To me it’s simple — I know real life from the [illusion] of social media,” she continued.
For the SUR hostess, there has been no other “Earth-shattering” moment than when she found out her father had died.
“I know what it feels like to have your world crumble. Getting a phone call from your brother saying your dad has passed away… that is Earth-shattering. Being called names and being falsely accused of things, that is far from Earth-shattering,” Kent mentioned.
As a victim of cyberbullying, Kent has sympathized with other people that have faced a similar situation.
“My mindset is something I’m grateful for. However, I can’t help but think about how many people are taking their own lives, daily, due to cyberbullying. It is imperative that I tell you, you are not by yourself. I see you. I stand by you. I’m on your team. You are loved and make a difference in this world,” she concluded.
How did beef reignite?
The beef between Kent, her man, and 50 Cent had been over when Emmett paid the $1 million he owed the rapper. Everything returned when Kent appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show and was asked about the digital brawl.
“I mean, I listened to ‘In Da Club’ on my birthday, so that was pretty lit,” Kent said of getting over her drama with 50 Cent.
At the time, Kent deleted all of her photos with Emmett and she explained her reasoning behind her decision.
“You know, I feel really badly for Rand at times because he signed up to be a movie producer, and he just happened to fall for someone who’s like very out there and outspoken,” Kent said. “So in the moment, I was like, ‘F this, I’m not having pictures up for people to screenshot and send to me and write mean things.’ It was just the heat of the moment.”
Kent then added a little spice claiming she had receipts that she hurt the rapper’s ego.
“I think I really dinged Fofty’s ego. In fact, I know that because I have a receipt to prove that, which I would never post because I ain’t that girl. I ain’t beefing unless I’m gettin’ paid on Vanderpump, yo,” she added.
50 Cent receives legal threats
It didn’t take long for 50 Cent to blast Kent and Emmett on Instagram, sharing memes and making fun of both of them. Things got so heated that the rapper heard the couple was threatening to take legal action.
50 Cent had his bases covered and was not going to stop trolling the couple. When Emmett paid back the rapper the money that he owed, the involved parties signed a settlement.
In a since-deleted video posted on his Instagram account, 50 Cent record his presumed attorney that read the following statement: “In the event that either Emmett or Kent make any public statements, whether on social media or otherwise, concerning G-Unit, Principal Jackson, or any dispute between the parties, including between Emmett and Jackson, G-Unit and Principal Jackson should be permitted to respond publicly in any manner and without any restrictions.”
With no restrictions to what 50 Cent can say about Kent and Emmett, the feud has no end in sight.
