Vanderpump Rules' Lala Kent On Her Father's Death: 'My World Has Crumbled'
It was a truly a devastating day for Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent, who shared to the public via social media that her father passed away.
The 28-year-old reality star shared a clip on Instagram on April 23, showing her, her dad, mom, and brother, Easton Burningham, in the car. Kent can be seen using a cute and colorful filter before letting her dad have his time with the oh-so adorable filter. Her father gamely and goofly played the part, and even stuck his tongue out.
"The world seems to be spinning much slower. I've never felt so lost. I've never felt so sad. My world has crumbled," she wrote.
As of writing, the clip already had close to 400,000 views. Kent's comment section was turned off.
According to a Page Six source, the patriarch died in his sleep, and it is still unclear if it was because of stroke. He reportedly died on Saturday, April 21.
Early in March, Kent expressed her gratitude of her dad's being able to come home. She also wrote that she felt glad in the tweet, and even referred to her father as her "champion."
Kent's words were more than understandable, as it truly is heartbreaking to lose someone. But for the stunner, who revealed previously in an interview that as a family they were "extremely close," the death of the patriarch could prove to be so much.
"We talked about literally everything - we still do, which sometimes my dad is like, okay I don't need to know EVERYTHING!" she said back then.
The Utah native was also one to have the support of her parents, amid the backlash she had been receiving for her actions. Many people started questioning how Kent's parents would feel about her behavior.
In a tweet in 2016, Kent reassured the public that her mom and dad remained proud of her no matter what. She also disclosed that the couple is 100 percent behind her.
Kent's wild quips and appearances on the Bravo reality show oftentimes garner mixed reactions. But despite these, she maintains her stance on certain matters, including marriage.
Marriage is something Kent regards as a serious matter. Furthermore, she values it as "sacred," and cited how her parents have formed a relationship that could weather many storms.
