On her podcast, Lala — who’s full name is Lauren Elyse Burningham — discovered that her ring wasn’t real through a series of events. 

Before their split, she overheard a curious conversation Randall was having with her mother about ‘how some rappers take s**tty diamonds and make them pretty,’ which then sparked curiosity over her own bauble.

After their breakup, she took the ring to a ‘highly recommended’ jeweler and found the GIA certification — a standard of rating diamonds through the Gemological Institute of America — which described the stone as ‘treated by one or more processes to change its color.’

Randall proposed to Lala during a romantic trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in September 2018 when they celebrated her 28th birthday.

She said the jeweler told her the diamond ‘was most likely brown’ before the treatment and he priced the stone ‘in the teens’ as opposed to the $150,000 tag from the original jeweler, Richie Rich. 

‘I love any type of ring that is given and has sentimental value. I don’t care if it was $100, I don’t care if it was $100 million — I don’t,’ Kent said. ‘No wonder he whose name we shall not mention flew in four times, he had to make sure the s**t brown diamond was clear!’ 

When Kent contacted Rich, ‘he was a little stressed out,’ she said before adding that he offered to rework the stone into a necklace. 

After asking the right questions, Kent claimed Rich admitted, ‘[Randall] knew exactly what he was buying. He knew the diamond he was getting.’  

 

'I love any type of ring that is given and has sentimental value. I don't care if it was $100, I don't care if it was $100 million — I don't,' Kent said. 'No wonder he whose name we shall not mention flew in four times, he had to make sure the s**t brown diamond was clear!'

While she did ‘laugh hysterically’ once coming to terms with the fake jewelry, Kent is also realizing ‘there’s not one piece of my five years with this person that has been truthful and honest.’

She added: ‘The only truth I feel that existed in my relationship was me and my daughter, Ocean. That is where the truth ended. That is a hard pill to f***king swallow.’ 

Kent, who hails from Utah, previously noted that she’s ‘hopeful and happy’ about the prospects in her life despite breaking up with Emmett after his trysts, and his raising their daughter, Ocean, nine months.

On an appearance for the Melissa Gorga On Display podcast, she admitted that ‘this whole experience has been traumatizing and it haunts me daily.’

Lala reflected on her relationship with Randall and wondered ‘just how I could feel so safe with someone and to have a conversation about starting a family’ with him. 

She added, ‘And him making me feel safe enough to bring this beautiful innocent life into the world is hard. It haunts me—like I said—daily.

‘I wonder often where I’m getting strength from, and obviously I see my daughter and I know exactly where my strength is coming from.’
