Ambyr Childers is seeking a domestic violence restraining order against ex-husband Randall Emmett.
According to a new report, the actress filed a request in a Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, claiming she has “legitimate fear for [her] safety and well-being” after reportedly reading an exchange of emails sent between the producer and director and his family law attorney, Ben Valencia.
On October 25, the Los Angeles Times shared news of Ambyr’s filing, confirming her request for an emergency temporary order against Randall, who was previously seen on Vanderpump Rules alongside former fiancé Lala Kent, was denied due to lack of proof, but noting that the matter will be further reviewed during a November 14 hearing.
In her petition, Ambyr said she took legal action against Randall after seeing “threatening” correspondence between him and his attorney.
As she explained, she emailed Randall last week after receiving a notice from their oldest daughter London’s school, which informed her that the child had been continually late while under her father’s care. And in response to her message, Randall shared copies of emails between him and Ben.
“When will you get some real money together so we can take this c-nt out once and for all. This is not good for your girls,” Ben had reportedly written.
“I don’t have real money for this and you know it,” Randall replied.
Ambyr, who shares joint legal and physical custody of London, 12, and Rylee, 8, with Randall, said the email frightened her due to the “finality and desperation” of Ben’s words.
“If not the infliction of physical harm on me, would the money be to set me up?” she wrote. “Is it some sort of bribe for law enforcement? With Randy’s history of illegal and/or intimidating activity, nothing is off the table, and all possible interpretations make me fear for my safety.”
Also in her filing, Ambyr accused Randall of being emotionally and verbally abusive during their eight-year marriage, saying he “would put his hand around my neck and tell me that I could never get away from him” and claiming he put a tracking device under her car after their December 2017 divorce.
At the time, Ambyr shared, Randall “admitted to me that his attorney Ben Valencia had directed him to hire a private investigator who then placed the tracking device on my car.”
Ambyr also mentioned the Times’ June exposé in her petition, claiming Randall offered her $50,000 to “stand beside him and refute what the article said,” but revealing she refused because she’s “just as much a victim as the other victims in the article.”
As Pump Rules fans have surely heard, Randall was accused of inappropriate behavior with women and mistreatment of employees in the exposé, which he denied.
Ambyr went on to ask for sole legal custody of her and Randall’s two daughters, and she requested that Randall be kept 100 yards away from her, her home, her workplace, and her vehicle. She also said she wants him to attend a 52-week batterer intervention program.
In response to the filing, a rep for Randall told Reality Blurb, “Randall is pleased the Court agreed there was no merit to any of the claims and denied the request.”
