Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel have rocked the Charleston community for years now; however, things have really hit a boiling point lately.
The duo who have dominated the Southern Charm drama keep finding themselves in the headlines; however not exactly for the right reasons.
Lately, women have been coming out with some pretty disturbing stories about Thomas Ravenel, something that local police are still investigating. Thomas already doesn’t have the cleanest past and as a well known womanizer he doesn’t seem to be used to hearing the word ‘no.’ It has been reported that he paid out a $200K settlement to a woman that he sexually assaulted after meeting her on the dating app Tinder. The woman’s daughter had encouraged her mother to use the popular dating app, unfortunately, her date turned out to be Peter Pan himself, T-Rav.
According to documents, her daughter describes the alleged events as follows:
Her mother came back from the date and “acted very withdrawn” before she confided in her daughter that Ravenel “stuck his penis in my face.’”
“Her wrists were starting to look bad the next morning. I said, ‘We need to see who we’re dealing with.’ She didn’t want to do anything. She was scared to go to court. I said right now you don’t want to do anything, let me take a picture of your wrist. Let’s get some evidence in case you want to do something,” says Ashley, 29.
We’ve also recently seen Ravenel joke that he would put ‘Plan B’ into his girlfriend’s food to prevent her from getting pregnant (something that seems incredibly creepy after all of these allegations have come out.)
More recently, a second woman has come forward accusing Thomas of sexual assault stating that:
“I told them the truth about what happened to me,” the alleged victim told South Carolina publication FITSNews after her five-hour interview with officers. “They are investigating him.”
As investigations are still underway I don’t want to comment too much; however Thomas comes off as an arrogant, misogynistic rich playboy on Southern Charm so unfortunately while these accusations are deeply disturbing they are not entirely surprising.
The mother of their children, Kathryn Dennis, recently spoke out to People Magazine about her own troubled past and how she plans to explain it to her two children (Kensington and St. Julien) one day:
“Maybe when she’s 8 or a lot older she’ll definitely pick up on things, because like Thomas and I are on the Internet talking about things. I’ll explain it to her as best as possible, but in a way where it’s preparing her for the world because I wasn’t prepared.”
Yikes – I’m going to try and remain from commenting as the two of them have already really made a name for themselves in the community. As they have small children I really hope they learn to put their children first, get their lives together and grow up. Bravo is reportedly investigating this as well to determine if Thomas should stay on the show.
