Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs simply can’t quit each other.
Not for longer than a day or two, at least.
On the heels of reports that the Southern Charm stars had broken up, we now hear the exact opposite.
Or, to be more accurate, we know hear that Ravenel and Jacobs did, indeed, split this week…
… only to get back together more or less right away.
Kate Casey said on her podcast (Reality Life) just a couple days ago that Jacobs recently called her and confirmed her ditching of Jacobs, adding in this conversation that she had “blocked” Ravenel’s number.
The podcast host said that Jacobs had decided to “set up a new life, away from Santa Barbara, in another state across the country.”
Good for her, right?
Good riddance to Ravenel the accused rapist and altogther shady dude, right?
Nope. Wrong, apparently.
An insider tells E! News that the Southern Charm-ers “immediately” got back together after this break-up, which is sort of how they’ve been rolling for awhile.
“They have been doing this a lot lately,” says this anonymous source. “It’s always up and down and they fight a lot. They find a way to lure one another back in.”
As for Ashley’s aforementioned plans to move and start anew?
She is still living in South Carolina with Thomas right now and they’re attempting to stay “low-key,” E! adds.
The reality TV star previously told a fan on Instagram:
“I don’t plan on addressing rumors or talking about my relationship status to social media at this time.”
Fair enough, we guess, although it’s always hypocritical of a reality star to demand privacy.
You can’t pick and choose when you want to share your life with the public; or, you can, we suppose, but you should then expect to receive flak for it, considering Ashley earns her entire living by supposedly being open and honest with viewers on television.
In related news…
E! News reports that the cast of Southern Charm has severed ties with Ravenel because they are “disgusted” by his actions.
Throughout season 5 of this obnoxious Bravo series, Thomas did little to squash the tension between Ashley and the mother of his children, Kathryn Dennis.
Then in May, two women came forward with sexual assault allegations against Thomas, both of which he’s denied.
Says an E! mole:
“The cast was very upset with Thomas and the situation surrounding Ashley, and cut him out of the group months ago after they stopped filming.
“The majority of the cast was also disgusted by his behavior and the support he gave towards Ashley’s actions.
“No one can believe he is staying in a relationship with Ashley and thinks it’s disgusting.”
Ravenel and Jacobs have been dating for over a year after having met in early May of 2017.
She even moved to Charleston, South Carolina, from her hometown of Montecito, California, to be with him.
Jacobs seems aware of the criticism of both Thomas and her relationship with him, but she also doesn’t seem to care about it.
“I only get one shot at living, so I’m living for myself without the influences of other people getting in the way of who I am,” Ashley wrote on Instagram just a few days ago.
