Lala Kent appears to SHADE Megan Fox in now-deleted Instagram post

Megan Fox was noticeably absent from the red carpet premiere of Midnight In The Switchgrass on Monday night, after pulling out of the event last minute due to COVID-19 concerns.

And Lala Kent, who is engaged to the film’s director Randall Emmett, appeared to shade the actress as she documented the premiere on her Instagram Story.

In one snapshot, the reality star, 30, posed in front of a Midnight In The Switchgrass poster and blocked out Megan’s credit with text reading: ”So excited for this!’

Kent has since deleted the Instagram Story post.

Fox, 35, informed fans that she would not be present at Monday night’s premiere in a statement issued to Variety just hours before she was set to walk the red carpet.

‘Due to the recent California mask mandate and rise of COVID cases, Megan Fox will no longer be attending the premiere tonight,’ read a statement obtained by Variety.

Other notable stars that skipped out on the premiere were Bruce Willis and Megan Fox’s costar-turned-boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.

L.A. County recently reinstated its mask mandate after it was revealed that coronavirus cases had ‘increased 700%’ since California’s statewide reopening on June 15.

The mandate requires ‘masking for everyone while indoors, regardless of vaccination status to prevent increased COVID-19 spread,’ as per KTLA. 

Megan and Bruce lead the film as FBI agents Rebecca Lombardi and her partner Karl Helter, respectively.

The duo are near a bust on a sex-trafficking ring when they run across the path of a notorious serial killer operating down south.

They team up with another agent from Florida (Hirsch) to catch the killer, but he abducts Megan’s character, forcing the two men to work overtime to save her before it’s too late.

The film is very loosely based on the real-life Truck Stop Killer, who was apprehended in 1990, though he was caught while in the act of torturing his victims, rather than being caught by investigators on his tale.

The killer, Robert Ben Rhoades, is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Though she was absent from the red carpet premiere, Midnight in the Switchgrass is undoubtedly an important project for Fox, being that it’s where she first met Kelly.

In a recent interview for the July edition of Who What Wear, Megan claimed that she had only agreed to star in Midnight In The Switchgrass in order to meet the 31-year-old rocker.

‘It was definitely a vehicle — I’ll be honest — for me to meet Colson,’ she said.

‘I knew he was gonna be in the movie, but the universe was just like, ‘Go do this. There’s something about this experience that’ll be really rewarding for you.”

Megan first opened up about meeting Colson for the first time in a now famous appearance on Lala Kent’s podcast in July 2020.

‘I could feel that some wild s**t was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soup,’ she explained.

The Transformers actress went onto deem MGK as her ‘twin flame’ due to their undeniable chemistry, something Randall was able to concur. 

‘Clearly, there was chemistry,’ the director told Us Weekly. ‘Clearly, there was a connection … but I was looking at it from a direction point of view and I was like, “Man, I’m a genius.” Like, “They’re great! I’m so good at this!”‘

Kent’s apparent shade of Fox may have stemmed from some hurt personal feelings, being that the reality star and her director fiance seemingly formed a close bond with the couple last year. 

‘My crew,’ captioned Randall, who uploaded a group shout of him and Lala with Megan and Kelly to his Instagram in August as they finished filming Midnight In The Switchgrass in Puerto Rico.

A few weeks prior, Randall had gushed about Megan and Kelly, writing at the time that he is ‘so grateful for our friendship.’
