He's right by her side. Vanderpump Rules star LaLa Kent is having a rough couple of weeks after the death of her beloved father Kent Burningham, but her boyfriend Randall Emmett is helping her get through it. The reality star is so grateful for her man's support during such a difficult time that she took to Instagram on Saturday, May 5 to gush over him in a sweet message.
"You are my rock. My heart [and] soul. You saved me — kept me from drowning in the darkest time of my life. I cherish the human you are. Thank you, my love," the 28-year-old wrote in her caption. LaLa and Randall have been dating since 2016, but they didn't go public with their relationship until his divorce from his estranged wife, actress Ambyr Childers, was close to being finalized, according to In Touch.
It seems like LaLa has been leaning on Randall ever since she announced the sad news of her father's passing on Monday, April 23. "Rest in paradise, my sweet dad. The world seems to be spinning much slower. I’ve never felt so lost. I’ve never felt so sad. My world has crumbled," she wrote on Instagram.
Earlier this week, LaLa made the trip back to her home state of Utah to honor her late father and her pals and Pump Rules co-stars Ariana Madix, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute also flew out to support her, according to E! News. By Friday, LaLa was on her way back to LA with her mom, and she even revealed that she got a tattoo in her father's memory.
"Back to LA with my sweet, beautiful mama, wearing my dad’s watch, and an epic tattoo. Repping my pops till the end of time (by @chichtattoos)," she wrote. "Dad, I promise I’m going to make you proud. I’m going to be kind and tender hearted, just like you."
