Yikes, the hits to Randall Emmett’s image just keep coming!
The movie producer’s former assistant, Martin G’Blae, claims that he had to pay for Randall’s prostitutes and drug dealers in a new lawsuit.
G’Blae, who is black, alleges racial discrimination played a major role in his firing despite the abhorrent tasks he was forced to perform while employed by Randall’s production company Emmett/Furla Oasis in 2020.
In the lawsuit filed Tuesday, G’Blae alleges his responsibilities ranged from cleaning Randall’s fish tank to “paying Emmett’s prostitutes and drug dealers.”
He also alleges that Randall brought cocaine to Puerto Rico while filming “Midnight in the Switchgrass.”
“Emmett had forgotten the code to the safe, so they had the hotel receptionist and a security guard open it. Inside, they found what appeared to be [a] brick of cocaine,” the lawsuit claims. “The other assistant quickly grabbed it, and they drove back to Emmett, fearing being pulled over and found with a brick of cocaine. When they gave it to Emmett, G’Blae told him forcefully to never put him in an unsafe and unlawful situation like that again.”
However, the accusations against Randall don’t end there. G’Blae also claims that Randall roped him into an “insurance fraud scam” when he asked him to file a missing car claim for his Rolls-Royce, which G’Blae insists was never actually stolen.
Randall’s attorney, Suann MacIsaac of Kinsella Weitzman law firm, responded to the allegations in a statement to Page Six, “Randall Emmett has never used a racially derogatory term in his life, and Mr. G’Blae knows it. Mr. Emmett looks forward to vigorously defending this action.”
G’Blae also claims that Randall made him violate his religious beliefs as a practicing Muslim, which included running poker-related errands.
“Emmett still requested G’Blae to run poker-related errands for him approximately six more times, knowing it would make him uncomfortable and violate his religious beliefs,” the documents claim. “Once, in response to G’Blae’s declining to be involved with their poker games, [another EFO producer] Alex Eckert told G’Blae, ‘We’re not going around asking you to bomb planes, we’re asking you to deal cards.’ On information and belief, he was referring to harmful stereotypes that Muslims are terrorists.”
Vanderpump Rules is set to begin filming season 10 in June 2022.
