‘Southern Charm’ Star Kathryn Dennis’ Mom Claims Thomas Ravenel Drugged Her Daughter
Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis has been fighting her ex, Thomas Ravenel, for primary custody of their two children – Kensie and Saint – since last October, and the battle is starting to get vicious. In addition to Dennis’ mother getting involved and making shocking claims against Ravenel, he is fighting back with even more nasty accusations against his Dennis.
Allison Dennis claims Thomas Ravenel drugged her daughter
Kathryn Dennis’ mom, Allison, has filed an affidavit with the court to support her daughter in her custody battle, and at the beginning of the document she praises Kathryn for having such a “loving relationship with her children.”
According to The Blast, Allison says that Ravenel will do everything he can to make it appear that she is the one who is taking care of the kids instead of Kathryn, but she says that it’s actually Ravenel who is not able to take care of them by himself.
She also shared other things that she would “like to forget,” including an incident in 2015 when she heard noises coming from the bedroom.
“Thomas came out afterward and left. I went to tell Kathryn something and she was dead asleep. When I was finally about to wake her up, she remembered nothing. My perception was that she had been drugged by Thomas,” wrote Allison.
The Guardian ad Litem has concerns
After spending time with both Kathryn and Thomas and observing each of them with their children, the Guardian ad Litem in their custody case has issued a report. The Guardian says that Kathryn has issues with being on time, is disorganized, and has problems with money.
Kathryn Dennis admitted that she was having money trouble after spending her Southern Charm paycheck, and she is selling her clothes and furniture. She also moved out of her expensive downtown home and into the house her grandfather left her.
Despite Kathryn’s troubles, the Guardian believes that she can handle custody of the kids and doesn’t need supervised visits.
As for Ravenel, the Guardian voiced her concerns over his drinking because there were witnesses who reported his “bizarre behavior after he consumes alcohol.”
Thomas Ravenel is now demanding sole custody
When Kathryn Dennis filed for sole custody last fall, Ravenel asked the court to deny her request and keep in place their current 50/50 arrangement. However, the former South Carolina treasurer now claims that Kathryn recently failed a drug test and he wants full custody while allowing Kathryn only supervised visits.
In June, the court demanded that both Thomas and Kathryn submit to blood, urine, and hair drug tests, and he says that Kathryn “produced a urine test positive for marijuana, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines.” He says that Kathryn has a prescription for the benzos and amphetamines, but the positive test for cannabis is a fail.
However, Kathryn says that her hair test was negative, and the positive urine test was because of CBD oil, which is a legal part of the cannabis plant.
Thomas says that Kathryn Dennis’ hair tests are unreliable because she wears wigs, hair extensions, and dyes her hair.
Thomas Ravenel claims Kathryn Dennis had an abortion while in rehab
After losing custody of her kids back in 2016 because she tested positive for marijuana, Kathryn went to a California rehab facility, and Thomas says that she had an abortion while she was there when she got pregnant “from some friend of his.”
Kathryn has finally addressed this claim and says that there is absolutely no truth to it. She explained to the court that Thomas wanted her to get an abortion when she was pregnant with Saint, their second child, but she refused.
She also explained her past marijuana use, saying that it helped her cope with depression and anxiety. When it caused her to lose custody, she went to rehab for 30 days. Kathryn Dennis says that the abortion claim is a “complete fabrication” and an attempt to defame her.
The judge in the case has yet to make a decision.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
