The Southern Charm reunion is coming up, but a new report from Radar Online claims that Thomas Ravenel did not get an invite thanks to the recent sexual assault allegations two women have made against him.
The 55-year-old was supposed to join his castmates in New York City, but the drama-filled reunion will not include Ravenel, thanks to producers.
“Thomas is not invited to the reunion,” reveals an insider. “With everything going on, it seemed better to the execs not to have him there.”
Debbie Perkins has accused Ravenel of sexually assaulting her back in 2015 after they matched on Tinder and met for a date. Her daughter claims that he eventually paid her a $200,000 settlement. His former nanny has also made claims of sexual assault, and last month she filed a complaint with the Charleston, South Carolina police.

In addition to the sexual assault allegations, Ravenel is also in the middle of a custody battle with his baby mama, Kathryn Dennis. Their next court appearance for mediation will take place on June 8th.
Dennis lost custody of her two kids, Kensie and Saint, after she failed a drug test back in 2016 by testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. Ravenel now has full physical custody of both children, and Dennis pays $100 per month in child support.
But in the past year, Dennis has passed multiple drug tests, and she wants more time with her kids.
It looks like the former couple is getting along, despite battling in court. This past Monday, Ravenel posted a video of himself with Dennis and their two kids dancing to Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time.
Ravenel’s girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs, did not appear in the clip, but the California-born nurse gushed about her boyfriend on Instagram, saying he brought her dinner after a long day of work and added the hashtag #HesTheBest to her Instagram story.
During the most recent Southern Charm episode, Jacobs and Dennis got into an argument that left Ravenel’s girlfriend at odds with his friends.
But Dennis seems to be doing pretty well, and she recently said in an interview that she feels like herself again, and she is the happiest she has been in years. But, it has been a journey.
As for the allegations against Thomas Ravenel, Dennis says she is waiting until the investigation is complete before she comments on the situation, and right now her kids are her main focus.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Thursday nights on Bravo.
