The Southern Charm finale explodes Thursday night, and while viewers are anxious to watch the Bravo fireworks, most are itching to know what’s really going on behind the scenes with Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs.
A source close to the couple is spilling ALL the tea — and dishing about the dynamic playing out, amid rumors of an impending breakup.
Our snitch reports that Thomas unequivocally wants out of the messy romance.
“Thomas desperately wants to be free of Ashley — but Ashley is refusing to leave,” the insider tells AllAboutTheTea.com. “She’s a manipulator, and uses emotional breakdowns, stress and her unhealthy weight loss to keep him nervous and on edge. He thinks that her unhinged outbursts are alarming.”
The source claims that Thomas is petrified of Ashley’s reaction to a forced split.
“Thomas is scared, plain and simple,” says the tipster. “He has caught Ashley in dozens of lies, and knows that she won’t hesitate to spread lies about him, if he puts his foot down.”
Social media enthusiasts know that Ashley regularly dishes dirt on Instagram — and loves posting solo photos on Thomas’ property. Fans have blasted Ashley for the self-serving pics — and according to our insider, Thomas couldn’t agree more.
“Ashley purposely stages photo ops when Thomas is absent. She’s desperate for public approval, and Thomas detests her need for affirmation from strangers online,” the source explains toAllAboutTheTea.com. “He’s sick of her social media obsession, and how she’s glued to her phone 24/7.”
Ashley referred to the children Thomas shares with Kathryn Dennis as “family,” on the show — but what’s the real deal between Ashley and Thomas’ loved ones?
“Ashley is not allowed any interaction with Kensie and Saint,” reveals the insider. “Thomas’ family, close friends, and even the nanny want her out of his life.”
Southern Charm will wrap it’s fifth season tonight — do you believe that Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs will soon wrap their rocky relationship?
