Turns out, Ashley Jacobs isn’t completely done with Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel. Days following Jacobs’ emotional post on Instagram confirming the breakup, the pair was spotted eating together in Charleston, South Carolina. Are Jacobs and Ravenel back together?
Photos of Jacobs and Ravenel surfaced on social media over the weekend. The two were caught sharing a few drinks at a local restaurant in Charleston called Home Team BBQ.
We do not know if the outing was an official date or if they were just catching up as friends, but sources claim that Jacobs and Ravenel looked happy to be together – which is a lot considering the recent breakup.

According to The Messy Mermaid, the apparent date took place a few days after Jacobs posted an emotional note on Instagram about the breakup. Jacob told fans that she does not want to go into details about the split and is working hard to handle her emotions privately. She also told fans that she is not interested in getting back with Ravenel, though that may have changed this past weekend.
“I think everyone’s been through breakups before but it’s hard. It’s not easy,” she wrote on social media.
Jacobs and Ravenel originally met in California – where she is from – in the spring of 2017. She promptly moved to Charleston to resume her relationship with Ravenel. Their romance appeared to be going strong as late as July, when Jacobs confirmed that everything was “going great.”
She did, however, admit that they had gone through some rough times full of stress, anger, and unhappiness. But Jacobs was optimistic about the future and was looking forward to the possibility of marrying Ravenel.
That, of course, all changed with the end of Season 5. While the series was wrapping things up, Ravenel got accused of sexually assaulted two women. Last week, Ravenel confirmed his exit from the show amid the allegations. Police are currently investigating the sexual assault charges, which is one reason why he was not a part of this year’s reunion.
Ravenel has not commented on the sexual misconduct reports, but he has denied getting fired from the show. Ravenel claims that he choose to leave because the series was taking advantage of him.
Ravenel and Jacobs are no longer a part of Southern Charm and will not be included in the next season. Ashley Jacobs has not confirmed the rumors that she and Thomas Ravenel are back together.
