Randall Emmett claimed he was going broke just months before his rumored split from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent.

Earlier this year, amid a court battle with ex-wife Ambyr Childers, the mother of his two oldest children, 11-year-old London and 7-year-old Rylee, the producer turned director suggested he was nearing bankruptcy as he requested his child support requirements be reduced.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online on October 19, Randall appeared in court in May, where he begged a judge to change a support order that required him to maintain a balance of $50,000 in a bank account shared with Ambyr for non-tuition related expenses for their kids.

While a judge failed to make a decision at that hearing, saying instead that Randall should keep the account open until an upcoming trial as Ambyr continued to be allowed to spend as much needed, Randall said he was running out of money and couldn’t wait that long.

In his motion, Randall’s lawyer said he “cannot afford to fund the child support security account at a rate of $50,000 every month” and noted that if forced to continue, “Randall will fall deeper and deeper into debt and will be forced to file for bankruptcy. A bankruptcy filing will not only harm Randall, but Ambyr, and most importantly, the children, as Randall is the sole income earner for the family.”

Randall went on to reveal he was already paying $5,250 a month in child support and was covering $300,000 in yearly expenses for the children, and he added that Ambyr, who he was married to from 2009 until 2016,  was spending excessively, going on trips, buying designer clothes, and purchasing a new car.

Her spending is “more akin to a contestant on The Price Is Right than a devoted mother,” his documents alleged, noting in a declaration that Ambyr was spending $2,414 per day.

Also during the hearing, Randall said he owed $500,000 to the IRS and large loans to a production company.

Then, just weeks later, he and Ambyr settled their issues out of court.

According to another set of court documents obtained by Radar Online, Randall and his company Randall Emmett/George Furla Productions were sued by their landlord, 8200 Cardinal Associates, on October 1 for allegedly breaching their lease agreement for an office space in Beverly Hills.

In 2017, Randall signed a lease to rent a portion of the third floor of an office building at the rate of $17,000 per month. However, according to the lawsuit, Randall and his company have not made the payments and vacated the offices without notice in March 2021, even though the lease didn’t expire until the end of June.

In addition to the $281,000 owed in unpaid rent and other fees, the landlord is seeking $55,000 for the months of April, May, and June for a total of more than $336,000 in damages and attorney’s fees.
