Thomas Ravenel is facing serious charges of sexual assault, but that hasn’t stopped Ashley Jacobs from standing by her man. Jacobs and the former Southern Charm star have had their ups and downs this past year, but sources claim that they got back together in the wake of his recent arrest.
Police arrested Ravenel this week after the former nanny of his kids, Dawn, came forward and claimed he sexually assaulted her. Although Ravenel is up against charges of sexual assault and battery, sources say that Jacobs fully supports him. The two ended their romance back in August and only recently rekindled things.

“Thomas is in good spirits all things considered,” the source explained.
The insider added that Ravenel is planning on fighting the charges and believes a court will eventually find him innocent of any wrongdoing. Jacobs has not commented about the case or her support of Ravenel, but the source claims they are keeping their romance under wraps until things clear up.
According to Reality Blurb, Dawn hopes that her story will inspire other women who have experienced similar trauma will come forward. The former nanny claims that Ravenel stripped her in his house and sexually assaulted her — all while she was watching his daughter, Kensington.
The alleged assault happened sometime in 2015 and Dawn claims that she has photographic evidence to back up her story.
It’s different @KathrynDennis earned her redemption story- #ashleyjacobs has said 100x she stands behind what she said just not how she said it(⁉️) & is staying w/ #ThomasRavenel even NOW. If BRAVO brought some1 as vile as her back they’d be losing a lot of #SouthernCharm fans

After being taken into custody, Ravenel posted a $20,000 bond and was promptly released. As part of the bond agreement, the former Southern Charm star had to give up his passport and is not allowed to leave town until the case is resolved.
The mother of Ravenel’s kids, Kathryn Dennis, recently commented on the situation and assured fans that she is “staying out of it.”
Thomas Ravenel will not be a part of the upcoming season of Southern Charm, which is expected to premiere sometime next year on Bravo.
