Former ‘Southern Charm’ Star Thomas Ravenel Says His Kids Would “Go Into Foster Care” Before Kathryn Dennis is Granted Full Custody

With the way you two act, that option is probably looking more and more appealing…

Kathryn Dennis temporarily lost custody of her two children over a month ago and according to her children’s father, Thomas Ravenel, the kids would be placed in foster care before she is ever granted full custody. 

Thomas made this claim, Reality Tea reports, after filing for full custody in October and requesting that Kathryn only have supervised visits due to her allegedly using drugs and neglecting the kids during her time with them… along with some other unsavory accusations. 

“I have been told in no uncertain terms that if something were to happen to me or if false allegations were brought against me forcing me into a desperate situation that I’d not lose the kids to Kathryn but rather they’d go to DSS and into Foster Care,” Thomas said in a deleted tweet posted by the Bravo Snark Side Instagram account. 

In response to a follower who asked if he was “implying Kathryn is that negligent,” Thomas replied, “infer what you will.” He also claimed he was informed of this by “the people who do this for a living.” 

“Shout out to all you ‘working’ peasants!”

Thomas told the court in February that he still plans to take his and Kathryn’s children with him when he moves to Aiken, South Carolina, this summer, which is about 2.5 hours from Kathryn’s home in Charleston. Currently, Kathryn is only allowed supervised visits with daughter Kenzie and son Saint every other weekend, with those visits taking place during the day.

Despite Kathryn and Thomas reaching a joint custody agreement in 2019, court documents filed in October state that Thomas claims there have been “changes” affecting the “health, safety and welfare” of the children, and that he believes Kathryn has “relapsed and is no longer sober from illegal drugs.” 

Thomas in the courtroom… probably.

“We have a witness who observed Ms. Dennis do cocaine while having custody of the children; a witness who observed Ms. Dennis leave cocaine on an open dresser within reach of the children,” the document reads. 

Kathryn denied those claims, stating in court documents, “I do not use cocaine so naturally I have not left any out for our children to access.” 

Kathryn filed in December to have the custody case sealed by the court, and it was approved, therefore the official reason for the custody loss is not available to the public.

  1. Imagine being such a shitty mother, you’re reduced to only seeing your children 2 times a month for a few kkhours each time, and they have to be supervised. How embarrassing. Wouldn’t that be a wake up call to get your fucking shit together, especially when the public knows all your business.

  2. Thomas’ family has a lot of influence in South Carolina and are part of that old Southern boy network. They have judges, politicans, and public figures in their pocket. There is no way if Thomas wasnt who he was was that he would have gotten away with all his alleged crimes.

  3. So Thomas is essentially admitting he’s a bad father? A child doesn’t just go into foster care unless both parents are deemed a danger.

  4. They have to have some kind of proof of this to have taken her kids. Photos or a failed drug test. They wouldn’t just take the kids on an accusation.

  5. I feel like the public got a soft spot for Kathryn when we saw what a POS Thomas was, and when we saw what looked like her working on her sobriety.
    But you have to wonder that as soon as she wasnt being held accountable to the law for drug testing, things definitely changed. She knew the public was defending her, as well as many of the cast of Southern Charm(except for the past season).

    But Kathryn has changed. Her looks and behavior are completely different, and with her past, of course the father of her kids is going to question it. And yeah, she isnt exactly the picture of “Mother of the Year”. She has burned a LOT of bridges and is enjoying a LOT of parties.

    What a shame.

  6. Idk if what Thomas is saying is true or not but it comes across as an open threat to Kathryn. I was genuinely surprised that the kids hadn’t been placed with her parents or another relative instead of Thomas. He’s known for drug use and recently a s*xual assault. It’s highly suspect that a judge would find either of them fit.

    1. Kathryn’s mother died and I wonder what her father’s health status is. She has a married brother, don’t know if he is a viable option for taking the children.

  7. They should go to the nanny before foster care. The nanny is the one that raises and takes care of the children, not Thomas! Thomas is a sexual abuser and quite frankly, he shouldn’t have the kids either. I know nothing of what Katherine does or doesn’t do but, she definitely seemed to be acting differently during Southern Charm.
