According to a couple of disturbing recent reports, Thomas Ravenel does not know how to take “NO” for an answer.
Similarly, it now seems as if Ashley Jacobs simply can’t bring herself to say “NO” to Thomas Ravenel.
Allow us to explain…
As loyal Southern Charm fans know well, Jacobs and Ravenel dated throughout most of Season 5.
They were a very serious couple for several months, but the relationship seemingly came to an end in mid-August.
Jacobs didn’t get into specifics upon confirming this news, but she did say the following on social media:
“I don’t want to comment but there are just some things I’m trying to handle privately.
“Before I say too much, I love Thomas and I’ll always love Thomas. I’ll always care about him.”
So at least Jacobs was up front about her feelings, even when it appeared as if the romance was over for good.
For whatever reason, however, Jacobs has been unable to quit Ravenel.
Just a month after the aforementioned break-up, sources wrote that the reality stars had gotten back together, having hunkered down for an entire weekend in the middle of Hurricane Florence.
We guess natural disasters can lead to unexpected developments in many different ways.
But it’s worth mentioning at this point that Ravenel has straight up been accused of rape by two different women.
A former nanny is on record as saying Ravenel threw her on a bed and forced himself upon her (while his infant daughter slept in the next room); while the daughter of a woman with whom Ravenel went on a date in 2015 has said the same thing about her mom.
The accusations are damning.
Ravenel has denied each allegation, but he was actually arrested on a charge of assault and battery in relation to the nanny’s charge just last month.
Still, none of this seems to matter to Jacobs.
This past weekend, onlookers spotted Jacobs and Ravenel at dinner at Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan Island in Charleston, South Carolina.
Does this mean the pair is gettng it back on for certain? No.
However, reports indicate that Ravenel put his arm around his ex while they sat with another couple at the bar.
That makes things sound fairly romantic, no?
As for the time before this when Jacobs and Ravenel were seen together in a similar setting, a source told People Magazine:
“They looked like they were having a great time. If they are still split, you never would have known, but at the same time they weren’t showing any PDA or anything.
“They looked friendly, like friends having a good time out together.”
Ravenel, meanwhile, was granted a $ 20,000 personal recognizance bond after her arrest and was ordered to turn in his passport, avoid contact with the victim and not leave South Carolina.
Following the news, Bravo confirmed that Ravenel will not be returning as a cast member for season 6.
But he had previously beaten the network to that punch, playing the victim on Twitter and writing:
I’m not doing the show anymore.
In the contract they have the right to fictionalize your story.
They took advantage of me. I decided I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.

In August, Southern Charm star J.D. Madison was accused of sexual assault. The details of the allegations are … heinous.
Another man was implicated, and it is that man’s actions that are bringing this case back into the spotlight.
He is now accused of having shown up at the victim’s house and threatening her.
J.D. Madison is accused of having drugged a woman and of having raped her once she lost consciousness.
According to FITSNews, another man implicated in the assault, chiropractor Jay Schwartz, showed up at the unnamed victim’s home.
“I’ve been trying to contact you,” he reported told her while standing at her doorway.
He then apparently said: “I want to talk to you about what happened that night.”
Instead of leaving when he realized that he was unwelcome, he apparently told her that he “has the messages from that night.”
To make matters worse, when the woman tried to close her door, Jay allegedly placed his hand between the door and frame, propping the door open.
It is at this point that he allegedly repeated what he had told her.
Once he had finally departed, the woman contacted police — which is absolutely the right thing to do under those circumstances.
Police then went to Schwartz’s home and asked him about the encounter.
He reportedly agreed with the woman’s “assessment of their conversation.”
Police then returned to her home where they gave her a copy of the No Trespassing order that had been issued to Schwartz.
Truth be told, an instruction to not trespass on someone’s property is a very mild response, considering the circumstances.
A man implicated in the drugging and sexual assault of a woman then showing up at that woman’s home and preventing her from closing her door?
That sounds like a terrifying ordeal.
It also sounds like a court could interpret it as witness tampering or witness intimidation.
Southern Charm fans cannot help of being reminded that J.D. Madison’s good buddy Thomas Ravenel was recently arrested.
Ravenel was arrested for assault and battery, and those who have connected the dots believe that the charges stem from the allegations by Nanny Dawn.
She is one of two women who have accused Ravenel of sexual assault.
Others have accused him of alarming behavior, saying that he seems like a perfect gentleman … right up until he becomes someone else altogether.
Thomas Ravenel will not be returning to Southern Charm for Season 6.
J.D. Madison was never a star of Southern Charm in the way that Ravenel was.
Instead, Madison had a recurring role — but that role was ongoing for the first five seasons of the series.
Some are asking if reality television in particular has a problem — if there is something about the genre that makes bad men gravitate towards it.
We understand the arguments, but we are not so sure.
Maybe, as more men are coming to realize, there are just a lot of terrible, predatory men out there. Not most men, but too many.
Perhaps some of them being reality stars is just a statistical inevitability.
