On October 26, Kathryn, 27, filed the paperwork at the Charleston County Circuit Court, in South Carolina. She’s being represented by local attorney, Alexander Cash.
The Southern Charm dad was served the petition on October 31, according to Charleston County Circuit Court records.
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.
“Thomas and Kathryn are joyfully coparenting and … Kathryn now has 50/50 custody of her children,” the screen read at the end of the episode of the hit reality series on July 12.
Viewers cheered the confirmation, after social media revealed snippets of Kathryn co-parenting “joyfully” with her ex, Thomas Ravenel.
As reported, the 50/50 custody share 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.
Thomas Ravenel, 56, was accused of sexual assault by former nanny, Dawn Ledwell, and an investigation into the alleged January 2015 incident has been ongoing. Thomas previously denied allegations made against him in May.
The insider alleges that Kathryn did not sign the offer for self-serving motives.
“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.”
Kathryn previously lost custody of her children due to struggles with substance abuse.
As reported, Thomas Ravenel and his baby mama 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.
While Kathryn Dennis is currently filming the sixth season of Southern Charm, Bravo announced Thomas Ravenel would no longer be featured on the show after news broke of his arrest.
