Thomas Ravenel is facing serious charges of sexual assault and battery, but his girlfriend Ashley Jacobs is sticking by his side. Days following Ravenel’s shocking arrest, Jacobs reportedly still supports the former Southern Charm star, despite their ups and downs this past year.
A source close to Jacobs says that she has not wavered in her support of Ravenel. The two only recently rekindled their romance and the insider claims that Jacobs is standing by her man, “although very quietly.” As far as Ravenel is concerned, he is good spirits knowing that Jacobs has not ditched him.

Police took Ravenel into custody this week for allegedly committing second degree assault and battery. Multiple women have accused Ravenel of sexual misconduct and one of his victims, “Nanny Dawn,” chose to press charges.
The former nanny claims that he took her clothes off and sexually assaulted her inside his home. Ravenel denies the accusations that have been laid against him and posted a $20,000 bond.
While Jacobs is fully supporting Ravenel, his baby mama is taking a different approach. According to E Online, Kathryn Dennis is steering clear of the situation and wants nothing to do with her former husband. Instead, the Southern Charm star is focusing on raising her kids as she distances herself from Ravenel’s crimes.

In addition to facing jail time, Ravenel will no longer appear on Bravo’s hit reality series. An insider claims that producers fired Ravenel from the show and are happy that they don’t have to deal with his drama anymore.
The network ultimately decided to let Ravenel go because of his sexual assault scandal.
“It disgusted so many of them on the show, especially [the female cast member,],” the insider explained.
Bravo has not officially commented on Thomas Ravenel’s criminal charges. Filming for the new season of Southern Charm is expected to begin soon.
