Southern Charm is facing yet another breakup. Thomas Ravenel’s romance with Ashley Jacobs is reportedly on its last leg after he failed to show up at the Southern Charm reunion.
Inside sources say that it is only a matter of time before the Southern Charm star calls it quits with Jacobs. We’ve heard Ravenel express doubts about the romance all season long and watching it unfold on TV has apparently made up his mind. But instead of going through a dramatic breakup, Ravenel plans on letting down Jacobs gently.
“Thomas is a gentleman, so he’s not going to humiliate her when they break up. But he is at his breaking point and ready to end things,” the insider revealed.

This past week, Southern Charm fans learned all about Jacob’s past as an escort. In a recent podcast, Heather McDonald revealed that Ravenel actually met Jacobs through their mutual friend, Landon Clements. Jacobs and Clements reportedly met when they worked together as call girls. Clements introduced Jacobs and Ravenel, who immediately asked if she would appear on the show as his girlfriend.
Jacobs also has a reputation for dating men who are wealthy. Her social media accounts are chock full of pictures with older men on yachts and private jets. Being a nurse, there is no way that Jacobs could afford that type of lifestyle, which has led to some speculation that she’s a gold digger.
The story doesn’t end there. While filming Season 5 of Southern Charm, Ravenel reportedly wanted to stop but couldn’t because Jacobs threatened to reveal how they really met. She apparently blackmailed Ravenel to stay on the show, which is one reason why he looked so depressed all season long.
Unfortunately, Ravenel has not commented on the situation, but the drama will likely be addressed in the upcoming Season 5 reunion.

Breaking up with Jacobs isn’t the only thing on Ravenel’s plate. According to Radar Online, the reality star is also dealing with accusations of sexual assault. Two women have come forward and accused Ravenel for acting inappropriately on different occasions. One of them worked as a nanny for Ravenel while the other was Debbie Perkins, who says the incident happened back in 2015.
Ravenel allegedly settled with Perkins outside of court for $200,000. Ravenel recently released a statement condemning the allegations.
Thomas Ravenel has been spending a lot of time with his estranged ex Kathryn Dennis amid the rumors he is single again.
Season 5 of Southern Charm continues Thursday nights on Bravo.
