“Brock has two kids,” Kent told costar Katie Maloney in the VPR season 9 trailer that premiered Thursday. “He hasn’t spoken to them in four years.”
The 31-year-old personal trainer has son Eli, and daughter Winter, from a previous relationship, and they live abroad with their mother. He welcomed daughter Summer Moon, with Shay in April.
However a source close to the former athlete quickly tried to downplay the startling accusation, saying the comment was taken out of context.
“It’s a complicated family matter,” the insider told Page Six, adding: “The pandemic hindered travel between the US and Australia, where the kids live.” The source continued: “Fans will get a better picture of the full story — which is more than the teaser clip — when the show premieres.” The new season is slated to start September 28.
The scandalous clip comes shortly after series matriarch Lisa Vanderpump spilled that Davies would definitely shake things up during his first season on the show.
“Is Brock the one? Only Scheana will find out that, but it definitely got a little complicated there,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum dished to Us Weekly. “And a few people had a lot of opinions, and they weren’t afraid to verbalize them… He is very much loved, but it wasn’t a smooth journey.”
The 60-year-old restaurateur added the CEO will shock the audience this season. “Brock brings definitely, you know, some surprises. And that whole relationship is a little eye opening,” she said, noting she “hopes” he and Shay go the distance.
“Their relationship does play out on Vanderpump Rules this season. Vanderpump Rules definitely felt [like] it was a different energy, but it did [still] feel as complicated and as intense, but because they were grown up, it seems like there were slightly more in-depth issues rather than, you know, somebody saying ‘it’s my birthday,’” the SUR owner said.
“It’s the kind of show that you could actually shoot all year round because when you have a group of people so inextricably entwined with very different opinions and also provocative characters that like to express their opinions, things often get complicated,” she continued. “It’s a great season.”
