Well that didn’t last long. After a shocking Southern Charm reunion, Ashley Jacobs reportedly kicked Thomas Ravenel to the curb – but not before she tried to take advantage of her newfound fame. Are Ravenel and Jacobs really done?
Jacobs reportedly left Ravenel ahead of this season’s reunion so that she could avoid her embarrassing spat with Kathryn Dennis. The Southern Charm star, who started dating Ravenel this season, apparently fled to her hometown in California prior to the reunion airing on Bravo.
An inside source claims that Jacobs knew her relationship with Ravenel was basically over and wanted to capitalize on the fame before the reunion ruined everything.
With Ravenel back home in South Carolina, Jacobs booked an appearance at a local club in Santa Barbara. The reality star was featured in a promotional add for the Matrix night club. The flyer featured a pic of Jacobs and mentioned her by name. The only problem with Jacobs’ plan is that the Southern Charm reunion aired prior to the club outing.
After the backlash she received from Southern Charm fans, the club chose to cancel her scheduled performance.
Jacobs has had a rocky relationship with Ravenel all season long. Things were made even worse, however, once Ravenel’s ex, Dennis, and Naomi Olindo found out that Jacobs previously worked as an escort. The escort rumors led many fans to believe that Ravenel had hired Jacobs to be his girlfriend on the show, which didn’t bode well for their future together.
Following the rumors, an inside source told Radar Online that Ravenel and Jacobs had split and were waiting to announce their breakup after the season was complete. “The romance between Ashley and Thomas is over,” the source dished. “Thomas is ready to breakup with Ashley. The relationship has run its course.”
Jacobs and Ravenel have not commented on the rumors surrounding their relationship. Ravenel did not accompany Jacobs on her trip to Santa Barbara, which could be a major hint that things are truly over between them. Although she hasn’t said much about the split, Jacobs did talk about her first season on Southern Charm and the challenges she faced.
Jacobs admitted that she didn’t expect receiving so much backlash for dating Ravenel and assured fans that she never meant to come across like she was after his money. She also denied the reports that she is an escort.
The Season 5 reunion for Southern Charm aired this past Wednesday on Bravo.
Ashley Jacobs has not commented on the rumors surrounding her relationship with Thomas Ravenel who may or may not be back for Season 6 of Southern Charm.
