Randall Emmett has flat out denied the shocking claims made against him in a newly filed lawsuit. After the film producer's former assistant Martin G’Blae sued his former boss, alleging racial discrimination, Emmett's lawyer has made clear there was no wrongdoing on his client's part in the ex employee's dismissal.
“The allegations being made are beyond fictitious,” attorney Suann MacIsaac said in a statement on Wednesday, November 2. “Mr. G’Blae is a disgruntled former employee who was fired for cause."
"During the last year he has tried to get thousands of dollars from Mr. Emmett for supposed unpaid expenses that he cannot substantiate. Mr. G’Blae will most definitely be held accountable for his actions in a courtroom,” the legal representative continued.
In a lawsuit, filed in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday, November 1, Martin G’Blae, who worked at the production company Emmett/Furla Oasis in 2020, claimed racial discrimination played a role in his termination. He also went on to claim the executive made him pay off sex workers and drug dealers.
“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 brick of cocaine,” the suit noted of Emmett, who split from Lala Kent last year, bringing drugs to Puerto Rico to film Midnight in the Switchgrass. “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,” the claim continued.
G’Blae also made allegations that the Gotti producer used the N-word when referring to nemesis 50 Cent and called Cardi B a “ratchet bitch.” Emmett's attorney has denied all accusations of racism made by the former staffer.
G’Blae is seeking money for emotional stress damages, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
