Ambyr Childers Granted Restraining Order Against Randall Emmett
On December 22, 2022, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that the Irishman producer, 51, is ordered to stay 100 yards away from the You actress, 34, the Los Angeles Times reported. Emmett is also not allowed to contact Childers unless it is a “brief and peaceful” interaction concerning the visitation of their two daughters, London, 12, and Rylee, 8. (The film producer is also dad to daughter Ocean, 21 months, with ex-fiancée Lala Kent.)
The ruling came two months after the Ray Donovan alum filed the restraining order against her ex-husband, whom she was married to from 2009 to 2017. In the October 2022 filing, she alleged that the movie producer emotionally, verbally and physically abused her. In the legal paperwork, she cited a “legitimate fear for [her] safety and well-being” as the reason for the request, alleging that she saw disturbing messages between Emmett and his lawyer after she reached out to him via email about their eldest daughter.
“When will you get some real money together so we can take this c—t out once and for all. This is not good for your girls,” Emmett’s attorney allegedly wrote, to which the Florida native purportedly replied, “I don’t have real money for this and you know it.”
In the petition, Childers also claimed that her ex “would put his hand around my neck and tell me that I could never get away from him” prior to their divorce.
Childers’ initial restraining order request was denied by a judge, citing insufficient evidence. “Randall is very pleased the court recognized that there was no merit to any of these claims and denied the request,” Emmett’s rep told Us Weekly in a statement at the time. For his part, the Midnight in the Switchgrass producer denied the abuse and instead claimed that Childers had abused him during their eight-year marriage.
One month later, Emmett filed court documents alleging that Kent, 32 (real name: Lauren Burningham) and Childers were conspiring against him.
“I believe that Ambyr and Lauren are working together in [an] attempt to destroy my reputation to give them both an advantage for custody,” he alleged at the time, in documents obtained by Us.
He continued: “Ambyr has completely fabricated abuse that never happened and I believe that Lauren has convinced her to do so.”
