Kathryn Dennis has officially moved on from Thomas Ravenel — the wealthy father of her two children, and into the arms of another.
According to a well-placed local source, the Southern Charm diva has attached herself to John (Johnny) Dowd, and is allegedly playing house with a Charleston customer.
Kathryn, 24, is looking for her next sugar daddy, according to the in-the-know insider, who describes the antique dealer as a “Rod Stewart lookalike.”
“She is looking for an older man to take care of her,” the source explains, adding, “Kathryn hooking up with an older man and quickly moving in with him, comes as no surprise to anyone.”
Dowd, 50, once owned a local antique shop, which he operated with his now deceased wife, Nikki. The shop closed in 2012. According to the shop’s old website, Dowd remains active on the Charleston antique scene.
Nikki Dowd’s life was cut short at the age of 40, in a disturbing 2013 New Jersey train incident. Officials said witnesses reported seeing Dowd climb under the gates as the train approached, raising clear suicide suspicions. Her legal marital status to John at the time of her death, is unclear.
Johnny Dowd has a checkered past, and a controversial history. The source alleges that Dowd is a pill pusher, raising questions about what triggered the new romance. Has Kathryn cozied up to an alleged supplier?
“This guy (Dowd) sells antiques and is a pill pusher,” the insider tells AllAboutTheTea.Com.
Kathryn supposedly moved in with Dowd, after dumping an old flame, 26-year-old Aaron Jones. Dennis and Jones allegedly rekindled a romance a few months ago. We’re told that the relationship fizzled quickly, due to Jones’ struggle with some serious health issues.

Kathryn shares joint custody of their children with Thomas, but a custody agreement has yet to be written in stone. Thomas continues to pay Kathryn’s rent, and is allowing her parents to supervise her time with Kensie, 2, and Saint, 7 months, as outlined in their current custody stipulations.
