Southern Charm star, Kathryn Dennis, is in a custody battle with Thomas Ravenel, and she wants it to be sealed and kept private. According to Page Six, Kathryn is asking the court to seal their case. Kathryn stated in the court documents that even with a restraining order, Thomas “secretly released to the media (either by himself or through his agents) a video recorded by his private detective of surveillance showing that she scraped a neighbor’s vehicle while backing out of her parking space in an effort to disparage her.” Kathryn also alleged in the documents that he is posting disparaging comments about her and is trying to make her look bad. The two co-parent their children Kensie and Saint together. Kathryn wants her children to not read about their divorce and custody battle when they get older.
In the documents it stated that Kathryn wants everything sealed. It stated, “Detailed deposition testimony and/or other testimony that negatively portrays the Defendant’s parenting abilities from being made public. Similarly, she does not want any negative allegations made against her being posted all over the news.” Kathryn also stated that Thomas would not “want the entire 4 hours deposition transcript of the parties former Nanny with numerous detailed negative statements about the Defendant’s conduct and character to be part of the public record.” Kathryn first filed for full custody of their kids after the sexual assault allegations against Thomas became public. Thomas then left the show after all of this came out, and he was banned from the Southern Charm reunion by Bravo.
Thomas then accused Kathryn of doing this for a storyline. Thomas alleged that Kathryn, “abuses prescription drugs, is engaged in the use of illegal drugs, and consumes alcohol in combination thereof regularly” and that she “has been intoxicated by the abuse of prescription drugs and/or use of illegal drugs while their children are in her sole care.” He also claimed that she buys, sells and trades drugs with “friends, cast members and show producers to support her prescription drug habit.” Thomas also sued Bravo about unaired footage of Kathryn talking about these situations. He also doesn’t want her to be able to film their children on the show anymore.
Yikes! This is a crazy situation. I think that it should be kept private for the sake of their children. I agree with Kathryn, it won’t be good for their kids to read when they’re older. I’m wishing them all the best!
Thoughts on this all? Do you think the custody battle will become sealed and kept private? Will Kathryn be able to film with her children? Sound off below!
