Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel is in the middle of a sexual assault scandal, and his co-star and baby momma, Kathryn Dennis, is taking him to court to fight for full custody of their two children, Kensie and Saint. After the allegations made against Ravenel, will a judge give Dennis her kids back?
According to Radar Online, the 55-year-old Ravenel currently has full custody after Dennis failed a drug test back in 2016 because cocaine and marijuana were in her system.
“Right now, Kathryn pays Thomas $100 a month in child support since he has full custody. She is planning to ask for money for child support from Thomas in court since she is spending fifty percent of the time with the kids,” says an insider.
The pair has a court appearance scheduled for June 8th, and it is possible that Dennis will bring up the sexual assault accusations against her ex if she thinks it will get her more money and time with the kids.
Dawn, Ravenel’s former nanny, has accused him of sexual assault, including “forcible rape.” And, a woman named Ashley Perkins claims that the reality star assaulted her mom, Debbie, on Christmas in 2015 after they matched on Tinder. She also says that Ravenel paid her mom a $200,000 settlement after mediation.
Ravenel’s future on Southern Charm won’t be clear until the Charleston, South Carolina police department finishes their investigation. Earlier this month, Ravenel’s lawyer denied Perkins’ allegations, and said that because of his client’s fame he became an unfair target of someone with “dubious motivations.”
Southern Charm is currently in its fifth season, and Ravenel has been a regular on the show since it premiered in 2014. Bravo has announced that the series’ production company, Haymaker, is also conducting their own investigation and take the allegations seriously.
Once they have gathered and reviewed all the information, they will take appropriate action.

Dennis recently appeared on Andy Cohen’s Bravo show Watch What Happens Live, but when he gave her the chance to speak up about the accusations against her ex-boyfriend, she remained quiet. There are rumors that Bravo has warned the Southern Charm cast to not talk about the allegations against Thomas Ravenel, so they can avoid any further scandal. But, since they can’t talk about it, we don’t know how any of them actually feel about the situation.
But, maybe in court, Kathryn Dennis will share her true feelings about her ex if she does decide to bring up the allegations against him.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Thursday nights on Bravo.
