“Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent has apparently fallen off the wagon. After the actress claimed that she only smokes marijuana, she was caught day drinking on September 4.
The 28-year-old stopped consuming alcohol because she “didn’t like who it made her become.” She told fans on Instagram live that she smokes and takes a very low dose of anxiety medication.
However, Kent was photographed downing multiple shots at brunch yesterday.
Kent is still grieving after the devastating sudden loss of her father in April. She also got engaged to her movie-producing boyfriend Randall Emmett on her birthday around a month ago.
Randall has stepped in to support her but the “VR” star has been very vocal about the struggle she’s endured since her dad’s passing.
A source told Radar online that Kent has been heavily drinking.
“Lala has been living her life and claims to be happy following her engagement to Randall. But her drinking has gotten completely out of hand. She is acting careless and is drinking heavy again,” the insider revealed.
The Bravo show has been filming season seven since Memorial Day. The source went on to reveal that her recent behavior has been distracting to her co-stars.
“She does not think that it is a problem at all, but the rest of the cast feels differently. No one wants to say anything to her, or call her out, because she is clearly still grieving over her dad’s death. Instead, everyone is just pretending like nothing is wrong. But they are all very worried about her still.”
Lala claimed in June that she was 60 days sober: “I began numbing myself from the moment I opened my eyes to the moment I closed them. I woke up one day, and I was like, ‘I’m making the decision to stop. I am officially breaking up with alcohol.'”
The cast of “Vanderpump Rules” shot opening credits earlier this week. The show is expected to premiere late 2018.
