As reported, Kathryn failed a court ordered drug test on June 14th — testing positive for marijuana, as well as for permissible prescription drugs. Thomas passed an identical test, securing a solid victory in court.
According to court documents obtained by AllAboutTheTEA.com, Kathryn violated their original custody agreement instituted in June 2018. As a result, Thomas was legally permitted to restrict the mom from seeing their kids under their binding custody agreement.
As fans may recall, Kathryn Dennis claimed that she won back joint custody of her children, Kensie and Saint after overcoming a battle with substance abuse. However, that could not be further from the truth. Kathryn did not sign the offer presented at the June 2018 hearing — therefore Thomas remains the custodial parent maintaining full custody of the children.
Kathryn’s failed June 2019 drug test puts her back to Phase 1 of the agreement. Read the excerpt below from the custody agreement. Phase 1 of the agreement states that Kathryn’s visits with the children will take place on alternating weekends, and must be supervised.
Kathryn, 27, and her attorney immediately petitioned the court requesting her visitation rights be reinstated and Thomas’ side entered a request for full custody. In Kathryn’s filing, she levied a multitude of nasty allegations against Thomas (with no supporting evidence to back her claims).
On June 26, the judge handling the custody case made a temporary ruling – granting Kathryn 50/50 custody. The stipulations are as follows:
- Kathryn will be allowed unsupervised visitation. She’ll get the kids 5 out of 14 days — Thursday through Monday.
- Thomas remains the custodial parent. He’ll get the 9 out of 14 days.
Again this order is temporary until the judge issues a final ruling in the case.
In 2016, Kathryn completed a stint in a California rehab facility after she tested positive for marijuana, cocaine and opiates and lost custody of her children. Kathryn eventually completed the five phases in the custody outline, and returned to court with Thomas in June 2018, where a 50/50 custody deal was put on the table.
Thomas Ravenel is set to stand trial after the ex-couple’s former nanny levied accusations of assault against the Charleston developer, in May 2018.
In January 2019, Thomas was back in court, alleging that Kathryn “condoned and/or encouraged Ms. Ledwell to make false allegations of sexual assault and to file a criminal complaint against him, on the heels of the ‘Me Too’ movement, for purposes of helping Mother gain custody of the parties’ minor children in a subsequent modification action.”
