Former Southern Charm Star Thomas Ravenel Claims He and Kathryn Dennis’ Son Has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Due To Kathyn’s ‘Drug and Alcohol Use’ While Pregnant

Shocking claims!

Thomas Ravenel claims that his son Saint was previously diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome due to ex-girlfriend Kathryn Dennis’ drug and alcohol consumption” while pregnant.

The former Southern Charm star made these shocking allegations in court filings amid his ongoing custody battle with Kathryn over their two children Kensington, 6, and Saint, 5.

According to court records obtained by The Sun, Thomas claimed: “formerly diagnosed with FAS due to Kathryn’s excessive drug and alcohol consumption while he was in utero.”

Thomas says that Saint has undergone “speech and occupational therapy for years to help combat his delays, but he is still falling behind at school.”

To help Saint catch up to his fellow students, his teacher created two folders, one labeled “Mom” and “Dad.” Said folders contain worksheets for him to complete daily with said parent.

Thomas alleges that Kathryn has “never touched” the folder labeled “Mom.” According to Thomas, Saint is scheduled to restart in-school therapy on December 11. Thomas also provided an email from Saint’s teacher in his filing in which the teacher calls Saint “such a sweet boy and a joy to have in class.”

Kathryn has yet to address Thomas’ claims that Saint has been formally diagnosed with FAS.

Thomas is currently demanding full custody of Saint and Kenzie. He only wants Kathryn to have supervised visitation every other weekend. In his October petition for sole custody of his kids, Thomas claimed that Kathryn has “relapsed and is no longer sober from illegal drugs.”

On the other hand, the Southern Charm star has requested that she and Thomas keep their current joint custody arrangement.

The court filings made by Thomas claim: “Father is informed and believes that Mother has done cocaine while having physical custody of the minor children.”

“Father is informed and believes that [the] mother has left cocaine within reach of the minor children while the minor children were in her care.”

In her court filing, Kathryn denied Thomas’ substance abuse allegations and even offered to take a drug test as long as Thomas pays for her test and agrees to take one himself.

This news comes as quite a shock as Thomas and Kathryn seemed to be on good terms earlier this year, as seen on season 7 of Southern Charm. At the start of 2020, Kathryn and the kids lived with Thomas while her townhouse was under construction.
