Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent’s ex-Randall Emmett has a hard time staying away from controversy. The movie producer once again created headlines, but for all the wrong reasons. It appears, Randall has been hit with a brand-new lawsuit in which he is accused of defaulting on a mega loan.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, a UK-based company The Fyzz Facility (TFF) sued Emmett, his producing partner George Furla and their production company, Emmett Furla Oasis Films. The lawsuit accused the C-list movie producer and the other defendants of breach of contract.
TFF said they entered into a bridge loan agreement with the producers. The deal had the company provide a $4 million loan to help produce a film called Mexicali. The terms of the deal were the producers agreed the money would only be used for the film, all withdraw funds without approval by TFF, Gerald Butler had to star in the film, and accounting would be shared regularly.
TFF alleged that they loaned the producers the $4 million. The company learned $1.25 million was sent to Butler’s talent agent. The court documents reveal that, “Neither Borrower nor defendants have repaid any of the monies advanced under the Bridge Loan Facility,” The lawsuit demands more than $10.8 million in damages.
TFF said they found out in March 2020 that the producers used money sent to Butler to pay him for another movie called Hair of the Dog. The company said Emmett and the defendants did not seek permission to do so. TFF said Emmett and Furla were to pay back the loan from fees earned producing other projects, which they said never happened.
