Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel has accused his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his two children, Kathryn Dennis, of buying drugs from the producers of the popular Bravo show.
The pair currently shares custody, but Dennis is presently pushing to become primary custody, citing recent allegations of sexual misconduct against Ravenel as the reason.
Ravenel is now accusing Dennis of drinking and using drugs while pregnant with their son and has even pointed his finger at producers of the show.
In new court docs obtained by The Blast, Ravenel, 56, claims that both of his children have “developmental and behavioral problems” as a result of their mother.
Ravenel alleges that Dennis had a “prescription drug habit” and that she buys, sells and trades medications from “friends, cast members and show producers,” per The Blast.
The pair have a daughter Kensington Calhoun, 4, and a son St. Julien Rembert, 3 together.
“The parties’ oldest child, K.C.R., has developmental and behavioral problems that have required intensive therapy. Father is informed and believes these problems are the result of [Dennis’] lack of bonding with K.C.R. during infancy. … The parties’ youngest child, S.J.R., has developmental and behavioral problems that have required intensive therapy. Father is informed and believes that these problems are the result of Mother’s drug and alcohol consumption while S.J.R. was in utero,” the documents state.
Dennis, 26, had previously lost custody of the kids and entered rehab in 2016 after she tested positive for marijuana and failed a drug test. The courts then awarded Ravenel full custody of both of his children, but one of the nannies employed by Ravenel has accused him of sexually assaulting her.
Ravenel claims that Dennis “filed this action for the sole and/or primary purpose of securing her role on the reality TV show Southern Charm and progressing her storyline as the ‘rehabilitated Mother who regains possession of her minor children.' ”
He also alleges that she “initiated this suit with the encouragement, condonation, and/or express or implied permission of the producers of Southern Charm for the purpose of providing dramatic material for the next season of Southern Charm.”
