Just days after Ashley Jacobs posted a tearful video on Instagram Live revealing that she and Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel had ended their relationship after one year of dating, a new report claims they are secretly hooking up. Has the alleged gold digger already managed to charm her way back into Ravenel’s life?
Ravenel and Jacobs reportedly broke up after Bravo aired Southern Charm episodes that featured her brutal fights with his ex and baby mama Kathryn Dennis. But even though they called it quits, an insider says that Ravenel and Jacobs “still hang out,” and he “can’t totally end it” because he is “still holding onto something.”

Since their split, Jacobs hasn’t been shy about dating other men, and the day after she posted her breakup announcement on Instagram, cameras caught her out with another man. But, the insider says that Jacobs going on dates ended up making Ravenel jealous.
But, even though the former couple is secretly hooking up and going out to eat together, the source insisted that Ravenel is still single, and they have not gotten back together. The former politician echoed that sentiment over the weekend on Twitter, confirming that he is single and ready to mingle. Despite both Ravenel and Jacobs claiming they are single, it has not stopped them from hanging out.
Today, my personal life just took a huge upward turn. I finally have more than enough information to move forward without any doubt or hesitation and I’ll never look back.

The exes were spotted last weekend walking on the beach on Edisto Island, which is near Ravenel’s plantation, Brookland. On the same day, they seemed “happy together” at the Home Team BBQ.
When Jacobs announced that she and Ravenel had split, she told fans that she would always love Ravenel and she would always care about him.
“I’m still trying to work it out, not work out getting back together, but I’m still trying to figure it out,” Jacobs said. “I think everyone’s been through breakups before, but it’s hard. It’s not easy. … Sometimes you just want to stay quiet and figure out what the next move in your life is going to be. … I’m just trying to take care of myself the best way that I can.”

Jacobs also revealed that after the breakup she had started working out again, and had gained ten pounds. Her weight was a topic of discussion at the Southern Charm Season 5 reunion, and the cast thought that she appeared too thin and were concerned about her health. Jacobs explained that the stress from being on the show had caused her to not eat and lose weight.
She also told fans that she wants to find a guy who will love her for her, and he doesn’t have to have money because that isn’t important to her. Jacobs added that she works hard and has a job, plus she drives her “cute little Honda.”
New episodes of Southern Charm will return to Bravo next year, but neither Thomas Ravenel nor Ashley Jacobs will be returning for season six.
