Ashley Jacobs’ secret past is coming back to haunt her. Since the Season 5 premiere of Southern Charm, we’ve known that Jacobs and Kathryn Dennis got into a huge fight in the season finale — but now we know what their dispute was all about. Here’s an inside look at the accusations that claim Jacobs was a hired escort all along.
On a recent podcast of Juicy Scoop, Heather McDonald claimed that Thomas Ravenel originally met Jacobs — his Season 5 girlfriend — after being introduced by former castmember Landon Clements. As fans will recall, Clements was reportedly also an escort and apparently made friends with Jacobs through work
After meeting Jacobs, Ravenel allegedly offered her money to be his girlfriend on Southern Charm. This helps explain why Ravenel has been so indifferent towards Jacobs all season and why she’s been so keen to be in front of the cameras.
To make things worse, Ashley has a reputation for hooking up with older men in California and is known for being a gold digger. Her social media accounts are filled with photos of her relaxing on yachts and posing on private jets, things a person usually cannot afford being a nurse. And the story doesn’t end there.
Once Jacobs landed a spot on the show, Ravenel decided he had enough of the drama and wanted to bow out. According to The Good Tea Time, Jacobs refused to allow him to quit.
Instead, she allegedly threatened to reveal the true nature of their relationship, which is one reason why Ravenel was so despondent all season long. This story also backs up earlier reports that said Ravenel dumped Jacobs to see Luzanne Otte but then got back with Jacobs at a later date.
Despite all the drama, it looks like Ravenel and Jacobs are still a thing. In fact, Jacobs has been sharing photos of her and Ravenel on social media. When asked if they are still going strong, Jacobs responded in the affirmative. She also recently admitted that she plans on dating Ravenel for the long haul and does not see their relationship ending any time soon.
“I love my Thomas,” she wrote on social media in response to rumors of his Southern Charm exit.
Ravenel and Jacobs have not addressed the rumors surrounding her past work as an escort. They have much bigger fish to fry with all of his sexual assault allegations that have recently surfaced, plus Bravo is considering firing him for Season 6.
Whatever the truth finds, we will all find out what happens when the Season 5 finale of Southern Charm airs in a few weeks.
