Lala Kent denies shading Megan Fox at 'Midnight in the Switchgrass' movie premiere
There doesn’t seem to be bad blood between “Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent and Megan Fox. The reality TV star set the record straight with Access Hollywood on Friday after fans speculated that Kent was trying to send a message when she took a photo that covered Fox’s "Midnight in the Switchgrass" poster. Kent attended the movie’s Los Angeles premiere on July 19 to support her film director boyfriend, Randall Emmett, while Fox reportedly skipped the event due to coronavirus concerns despite having a starring role in the thriller.
But the 24-year-old American made a shock exit from the team's event before pulling out of the all-around, citing mental health concerns.
Biles said it had been a "long Olympic process, a long year. We are just a little bit too stressed out. We should be out here having fun".
While Biles received an outpouring of support, she did cop some criticism on social media for not putting her team and country first.
Fox told of her own pressure going into the Olympics, where she was a raging favourite to win gold in both the K1 and the new C1 - and the heartbreak at falling short in her first event.
Her preparation was also affected with the whitewater venue in Sydney damaged by flooding, while she was unable to compete overseas for more than a year due to COVID-19.

"It was very taxing. I had to do a lot of mental work over the past 48 hours.
