Thomas Ravenel & Kathryn Dennis Custody Update!
Southern Charm wrapped it’s fifth season with the happy news that Kathryn Dennis had won back joint custody of her children, Kensie, 4, and Saint, 2, after overcoming a battle with substance abuse.
Viewers cheered the confirmation, after social media revealed snippets of Kathryn co-parenting “joyfully” with her ex, Thomas Ravenel.
According to a source close to the case, the cheery Bravo epilogue did not tell the whole story. The insider explains that while the couple is sharing custody of the two children, the arrangement was not set in stone when the former couple attended mediation with their attorneys on June 8.
“Thomas and Kathryn met in June to hammer out a legal agreement,” our source reveals. “Thomas’ lawyer laid out a 50/50 custody agreement, and even sweetened the deal by throwing in a $70k luxury Mercedes SUV.”
“Kathryn was offended by the Mercedes offer and yelled, ‘I can’t be bought.'” The source adds.
The insider alleges that Kathryn did not sign the offer — therefore, 50/50 custody is not official in the eyes of the court.
“Kathryn is stalling on signing the agreement because she wants to see where Thomas lands in his alleged rape investigation, before accepting the offer,” explains the source. “The judge has not signed off on any agreement and Thomas remains with full custody.”
Thomas was accused of sexual assault by former nanny, Dawn Ledwell, and an investigation into the alleged January 2015 incident has been ongoing.
However despite what the court mandates, Kathryn and Thomas have a very cordial co-parenting relationship.
“They talk all the time like best friends, he tells Kathryn everything.” a source dished to AllAboutTheTea.com.
As reported, Thomas and his baby mama recently shared a spa date together at a local Charleston establishment, on July 27. The purpose of the outing was to unwind before a planned family weekend with their two children. However, their spa experience was ruined after Thomas‘ ex girlfriend Ashley Jacobs found out and went ape-sh*t crazy — triggering an explosive break up.
The most notorious Southern Charm duo is making it work — but will their renewed partnership be cemented in court?
