So rumors are flying about 26-year-old Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent being a Sugar Baby to a married man on season 5 of the show. Actually this rumor really started in season 4 of the show–recall Lala’s mysterious ‘free’ trip to Italy? Anyhow now 30-year-old Katie Maloney is doubling down on the claims saying that she has it from “multiple unrelated sources” that Lala has a Sugar Daddy that is bankrolling her lifestyle buying her a car and apartment and presents.
So first, what exactly is a Sugar Baby? Well you probably have some idea. It’s a woman who dates wealthy, sometimes older men, in exchange for gifts or money.
There are about one million SBs in the United States and plenty of websites that can connect the two parties.
And it’s actually a very official agreement between two parties with contracts and everything. Websites refer to it as a “Mutually Beneficial Relationship”. People unofficially refer to it as “sugaring”. As far as the question about whether or not sex is involved…well not officially. In fact there are a lot of the relationships that are strictly business and have very clear rules.
Unfortunately I have a friend that is a Sugar Daddy and I know more than I really wanted to know. I was shocked when I found out, mostly because he is not that wealthy! We are talking about a guy who makes $100,000 a year. How much sugar can you really buy with that? That’s basically a packet of Sweet and Low.
The thing is these are contracts that spell out when and where and how often the two will meet. It establishes clear rules—it could even say “no touching”.
So why would a guy pay to date a girl he could not even touch. Well the explanation from my friend was that just the act of being seen out with a hot young girl ups his mojo and street cred with real unpaid women.
He also said “Look, guys are paying for women anyway on real dates. We pay a ton of money taking a girl out and often get nothing, not even a second date. At least this way I know exactly what I am getting and I know I will see her again.”
It seems so bizarre to me that men are so Ok with dating a girl that they know is not with him of her own free will, but because of some sort of coercion, but guess what? Men don’t really care.
I also met an attorney at Burning Man 2 months ago who was a Sugar Daddy in LA. He is good looking and wealthy and has a gorgeous wife and a son, but apparently it’s not enough because he also has some Sugar babies on the side. Considering he could easily have a good ‘ol fashioned affair with an attractive woman that actually wanted to be with him, spending tons of money for a girl that wasn’t even that in to him seemed odd, but I suppose the discretion is very appealing to married men.
Additionally he told me that he needs a Sugar Baby because…..wait for it….
He needs his d!ck sucked regularly and his wife wasn’t cutting it.
So who knows, maybe he knows Lala! Sorry Lala, I could not resist.
Anyhow, Lala vehemently denies the claims and says she’s in a committed relationship and its the “only d!ck that she’s sucking”.
I am guessing the “relationship” may be with her ex boyfriend NFL star Hayes Pullard because it was clear that things were not over between them on season 4. And the only reason they weren’t together was because he lived in Jacksonville, Florida.
Lala told Scheana, “We were together for a long time. It’s always been long distance, but we just can’t quite act it yet.”
And last year she told us, “we were together for 2 and a half years and we have been somewhat on and off for 3″.
Her boyfriend certainly is not James Kennedy–although she does admit to having sex with James once despite the fact that he could not fit into any of her condoms.
Lala explained her new Range Rover claiming she has no other bills and her mother’s been bankrolling her her whole life which begs the question, what does her mom do? Is she a ‘Sugar Baby’?
Interestingly, Lala walks off of season 5 which kind of leads me to think she may be doing some sugaring and the pressure got too much–especially if she is still trying to maintain a relationship with Hayes. Hayes would be furious if he learns his girlfriend is selling her sugar to someone else.
Although I also think there’s a chance that Hayes is the Sugar Daddy given his salary of $570,000 a year playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Sugar Daddy identity revealed
UPDATE 12/05/2016: It appears that the rumor is true. Stassi Schroeder claimed on Vanderpump Rules episode 5 that Lala and her Sugar Daddy made a sex tape and the Sugar Daddy’s wife found it!
Anyhow, we will see how this situation unravels.
