Serious and also very sad.
The Vanderpump Rules star and veteran Bravo personality updated her social media fans on Monday with the news that her father has passed away.
“Rest in paradise, my sweet dad. The world seems to be spinning much slower,” the 28-year-old wrote alongside a video shared to Instagram that shows her goofing off with her dad using a rainbow animal filter.
The video also depicts her mom and brother, Easton Burningham.
It's not clear at the moment just how Kent's father died.
But Lala was very candid in her caption, revealing to the world just how difficult this loss is to process.
“I’ve never felt so lost. I’ve never felt so sad. My world has crumbled," she concluded.
Kent, who is somewhat of a controversial figure due to some of her shenanigans on Vanderpump Rules and some of the comments she makes away from the camera, elicited nothing but sympathy for her post.
This has everything to do with the tragic subject matter, of course, but also with how open Kent has been in the past about her bond with her dad.
“I grew up in a very open home," she explained to Heavy.com in 2015, adding at the time:
"We talked about literally everything - still do, which sometimes my dad is like, ‘OK, I don’t need to know EVERYTHING!’
"My family is extremely close. I don’t have family in Utah except for immediate family so it is kind of like ‘we all we got!'"
Lala also went into detail in this interview about the relationship between her parents and how it has shaped her own views and opinions on love.
“I take marriage seriously," she told the website.
And this is why:
"My parents have been together for 35 years, through thick and thin. I haven’t ever been married, but I still hold that title sacred.
"Their marriage isn’t something I have any input on. I just hope everything works out and they stick together through all the ups and downs. I love them together.”
That's so very sweet of a daughter to say, isn't it?
Those who watch Vanderpump Rules online or who follow Lala's life closely are aware that she's dating Randall Emmett.
The romance seems pretty serious, too.
"I see marriage with him," Lala told Life & Style a little while back.
"I see kids with him. We are absolutely in no rush. He spoils me beyond belief with materialistic things, but it's beyond that. He takes care of my heart and soul."
We're so glad to hear it.
She likely needs him more now than ever before.
We send our thoughts and prayers to Kent and her family.
