Ashley Jacobs Keeps Hanging Out with Alleged Rapist Thomas Ravenel

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.


Thomas Ravenel Accused of Naked Assault on Ex-Nanny

We have an update on Tuesday’s arrest of former Southern Charm lead Thomas Ravenel.

And it’s a very ugly update.

The ex-Bravo star was taken into custody this morning on charges of second degree assault and battery.

At the time of the arrest, we were uncertain just why Ravenel had been booked by Charleston police, but we’ve now learned the a warrant had been issued regarding an alleged incident in 2015.

We’ve actually reported on this incident previously.

Back in May, a former nanny named Dawn accused Ravenel of attempted rape, outlining for People Magazine the way in which Ravenel forced himself on her in his bedroom… while his infant daughter slept just feet away next door.

According to the official arrest affidavit, the attack took place inside Ravenel’s home on Charlotte Street in Charleston.

“While inside the location, the defendant undressed and made sexual advances on the victim,” this legal document reads.

It continues:

“The defendant grabbed the victim’s hand and placed it on his penis before attempting to removed the victim’s clothing.

“While attempting to remove the victim’s clothing, the victim’s underwire bra cut into her skin and her shirt wrapped around her neck, which caused the victim to struggle to breathe.”

The affadavit goes on, in lurid detail, stating that Ravenel then “pulled down the victim’s pants and said ‘Show me your pussy.'”

He then “began grabbing the victim’s vagina.”

As a result, the nanny “crouched down to the ground to try and prevent further assault [and] the defendant then put his penis in her face and asked, ‘Do you like big dicks?’”

For the record, before we go any further, the victim is NOT named in the document.

We are just making an assumption that she is the same nanny who, as cited above, reported a very similar crime had taken place at her expense.

After escaping the assault, the woman called her ex-husband and sister and told them of the inciden…  fled the scene … and notified several family members of the incident,” the affidavit states.

“Photographs were then taken immediately of the injures to her neck and chest.”

Earlier that month, another woman named Ashley Perkins alleged that Ravenel sexually assaulted her mother, Debbie Holloway Perkins, after the two went on a date and then ended up back at Ravenel’s home.

The star’s lawyer denied the allegations made by Perkins at the time.

The Charleston police department has said that Ravenel surrendered himself to authorities just after 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

Bravo, meanwhile, confirmed to the press that the former politician, who has been featured on Southern Charm since season 1 in 2014, would not return for season 6.

Ravenel previously announced he was done with the show in August, claiming he was a victim of editing and and actually writing:

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.

This guy sucks. 


Thomas Ravenel Hastily Retracts Ashley Jacobs Cheating Claims!

Over the weekend, Thomas Ravenel accused Ashley Jacobs of having cheated on him during their relationship. He didn’t provide any details — he just made the claim.

Ashley denied cheating in a public statement, essentially saying that Thomas was just upset and wanted to lash out.

Now, Thomas is walking back his words — with very good reason.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Thomas writes: “I have no information that Ashley Jacobs ever cheated on me.”

“In fact as far as I know she has always been true and faithful,” Thomas affirms.

Thomas adds that this was true “especially during the really dark times.”

One assumes that he is referring to the multiple accusations of sexual assault that he is facing.

Thomas admits: “She didn’t deserve my insinuations to the contrary.”

RadarOnline reports that Ashley Jacobs threatened legal action over Thomas’ accusatory tweets.

“Ashley was so upset that Thomas accused her of cheating,” an insider tells the tabloid.

It’s true that he didn’t spell out his accusations, but the source says that “even if it wasn’t by name, everyone knows it was about her.”


In fact, it’s difficult to read his words as anything else but an accusations that Ashley was screwing around with other dudes during their relationship.

The insider says that “she called his attorney super upset about what he wrote.”

We would imagine so. Ashley’s had enough trouble dating after Thomas as it is.

(To be fair, that’s probably because a lot of people saw her vicious verbal attacks on Southern Charm and don’t want that in their lives)

It’s not clear what she said to the attorney, but apparently it worked, “and Thomas quickly put up the new statement.”

Well, at least that is taken care of.

In case you’ve forgotten Thomas’ words from the weekend, here are his insinuations:

“Today, my personal life just took a huge upward turn,” he wrote. “I finally have more than enough information to move forward without any doubt or hesitation and I’ll never look back.”

On its own, that’s super vague. Unfortunately, he elaborated.

“After 30 years,” Thomas continued. “I finally understand the lyrics from that wonderful Chicago tune:”

He reminds followers of the lyrics: “If she would have been faithful / if she could have been true / then I would have been cheated / I would have never known real love.”

We can’t confirm the report that Ashley made a call to Thomas’ attorney, so it’s always possible that Thomas simply decided to retract those words on his own.

According to a number of his fellow Southern Charm stars, Thomas behaves like a decent guy most of the time.

They — and others — have said that his gentlemanly behavior can sometimes give way and reveal someone with an unkind or even frightening temperament 

The relationship between Ashley and Thomas was unnerving to a number of people, who despite Ashley’s extremely hostile behavior found themselves worried that she was in a toxic relationship.

Hopefully, she can move ahead, work on her behavior, and, in time, leave this chapter of her life behind her.


Ashley Jacobs: I’m Dating Some Guys NOW, But I NEVER Cheated on Thomas Ravenel!

Over the weekend, disgraced Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel took his Twitter public so that he could basically accuse Ashley Jacobs of cheating on him.

The two of them have broken up, and since then, Ashley has been spotted with multiple men.

But she very firmly insists that she never cheated on Thomas.

In an interview with PeopleAshley Jacobs makes clear that she was faithful to Thomas during their relationship.

“I never cheated on Thomas,” Ashley says.

“We had agreed to go our separate ways,” she explains. “And I told him I wanted to see other people.”

Unfortunately, it sounds like he jumped to conclusions: “When he saw that I was out with friends, he got angry and made assumptions that I was dating other guys.”

“And when he confronted me about it,” Ashley says. “I blocked him because it wasn’t worth my energy.”

Though Ashley was known for insane confrontations on camera and for putting up with Thomas’ unhealthy behavior, it sounds like she’s experienced some personal growth in recent months.

“It’s toxic and unhealthy,” Ashley says of Thomas’ need to confront her after they’ve both moved on.

However, since Thomas couldn’t talk to her about it, it seems like he felt the need to lash out.

“So,” Ashley explains. “He went on a tweet storm.”

“He’s very impulsive and he’s not thinking,” Ashley summarizes. That sounds about right.

“Thomas is very traditional,” Ashley explains. “He’s all about loyalty and honesty … and he just wanted a reaction.”

In addition to his demands of loyalty, we have heard from multiple people, from his former dates to his fellow reality stars, that Thomas has a nasty streak that comes out at times.

All things considered, the accusations on Twitter aren’t all that bad, but they’re definitely unkind and unbecoming.

Ashley says: “And my reaction was, ‘Typical, standard. Make an ass out of yourself. Keep doing it buddy.'”

Ashley continues explaining her response: “‘At this point, you’re only making it that much easier for me. I’m embarrassed for you that you have to go on Twitter at 56 years old.’”

“I feel betrayed,” Ashley laments. “I’m so disappointed.”

She uprooted her entire life after five dates to come live with Thomas in Charleston. Clearly, that has not worked out.

“To put stories there that [I’ve been unfaithful],” she syas. “Especially with what’s going on right now, that there’s allegations he hasn’t been cleared from, he should know better.”

She is of course referring to Thomas Ravenel being accused of rape by multiple women. 

Ashley doesn’t necessarily sound like she’s supporting those women, just pointing out that he is in no position to be doing callouts.

“I’m going to defend my character,” Ashley affirms. “I’m going to defend my reputation.”

Her reputation has come under attack from more than just Thomas Ravenel.

All About The Tea reports that Ashley’s been dating multiple men since her split with the embattled Southern Charm star.

She was spotted having dinner with a married man on Friday night (though, of course, we don’t know the state of his marriage or the nature of the dinner).

Ashley also appeared on Instagram partying alongside Charleston resident Ryan Trout on his boat over the weekend.

She has reportedly been hooking up with Charleston bad boy Conner Flowers, who is said to see her more as a booty call.

But even if she’s truly dating all three of those men … so what? She’s not dating Thomas anymore.

We still remember her vicious behavior on Southern Charm, though given her recent apology to Ashley Jacobs, it does seem like she has a lot of regrets.

Whether or not you feel sorry for her or feel that she made this bed with her impulsive move and now she has to lie in it, we don’t really see a basis for accusing her of cheating.

Maybe Thomas is referring to something that fans haven’t seen? But dating again after a split is part of life.


Thomas Ravenel Basically Accuses Ashley Jacobs of Cheating

Thomas Ravenel does not want your pity.

But, if you’re a woman, he very much does want you to give him a call.

The veteran Southern Charm star took to Twitter over the weekend in order to make one accusation and one offer.

First, the accusation:

Ravenel – who quit the aforementioned Bravo series this month amidst allegations of rape by two women – wrote on his personal account that he’s totally fine with Ashley Jacobs ending their relationship a couple weeks ago.

For what reason?

Because Ravenel hints strongly that Jacobs cheated on him.

Today, my personal life just took a huge upward turn,” Thomas Tweeted on Saturday, explaining why as follows:

“I finally have more than enough information to move forward without any doubt or hesitation and I’ll never look back.”

TR Tweets

How ominous sounding, right?

The assumption around the Internet is that Ravenel is confirming that he has gathered the necessary intel to prve that Jacobs was sleeping with other men behind his back.

That’s why he can finally “move forward” confidently and that’s why he replied to a follower asking if he were single by writing:

“And ready to mingle!”

Ravenel also sent a second Tweet that cited the Chicago song “If She Would Have Been Faithful,” suggesting that Jacobs had been untrue, writing:

“After 30 years I finally understand the lyrics from that wonderful Chicago tune:

“If she would have been faithful, if she could have been true, then I would have been cheated, I would have never known real love.”

Jacobs – who dated Ravenel for two years and whose feud with his two-time baby mama, Kathryn Dennis, drove much of Season 5 – broke the break-up news to her own social media followers back in mid-August.

Fighting off tears in a video, Jacobs said “I love Thomas and I’ll always love Thomas. I’ll always care about him.”

That’s sweet and all, but as we noted above:


A former housekeeper and a woman with whom Ravenel went on a date in 2015 have both said he assaulted them sexually.

This does not mean he’s guilty, we know.

But it’s worth emphasizing.

The very rich Charleston resident has denied these accusation, while resigning from Souther Charm and blaming his portrayal on that series for his sullied reputation.

“I’m not doing the show anymore,” Ravenel said upon announcing his departure, adding:

“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.”

As for Jacobs?

“I hope the best for her … I do feel a bit sad now,” he Tweeted over the weekend.

“But now I know that just around the corner, down the street, around the block, something magical is going to happen … perhaps real love.”


Or maybe jail time for those aforementioned rape allegations.

Ravenel said he is now seeking “a woman with whom the trust, faith, respect and love is immovable,” adding that he felt he never got that from Jacobs.

Will Ashley return to Southern Charm for Season 6? It remains unclear.

But she attempted to make amends with Dennis via a lengthy Instagram apology last week.

Might she next write one to Thomas?


Ashley Jacobs and Thomas Ravenel: Secretly Hanging Out After Their Split!

This week, Southern Charm fans were stunned when Ashley Jacobs actually apologized to Kathryn Dennis. She had, well, a lot for which to feel apologetic.

Unfortunately, sometimes personal growth is accompanied by a huge step backwards.

Though Ashley and Thomas Ravenel broke up a couple of weeks ago, the two have been spotted hanging out again. That … cannot be good.

After Thomas and Ashley were spotted hanging out together, RadarOnline got the scoop from an inside source.

“Thomas and Ashley still hang out,” the insider reports.

That’s a huge bummer for those who hoped that she was truly ready to move on and recover from a deeply toxic relationship.

“He is still holding onto something,” the source shares, referring to Thomas’ emotional attachment to the registered nurse.

The insider explains: “He just can’t totally end it.”

We mentioned that Ashley was seen grabbing some new guy’s butt, right?

Apparently that was not an isolated incident.

“Ashley has been on multiple dates,” the source shares.

That sounds healthy for her … but unfortunately, it may have led to her hanging out with Thomas again.

Because the insider says that Thomas took notice of her dating “and it made Thomas jealous!”

As we mentioned, Ashley and Thomas were spotted.

They were seen cozying up to each other on the beach on Edisto Island, right near his plantation, Brookland.

“He and Ashley went out to eat,” the source says. “But they are not together.” So that is something, at least.

They were also spotted at Home Team BBQ, where The Messy Mermaid’s Instagram account described them as looking “happy together.”

If your reaction is more or less summarized by this .gif from Part Two of the Southern Charm reunion special, you are not alone.

This was, as you may recall, Thomas’ costars and even his friends responding with concern after Ashley insisted that it was her fault that Thomas allegedly threw something at her.

Ashley claimed that she was “being a brat,” as if that could justify Thomas’ reported response. As a number of the stars said — that was a huge red flag.

The way that Ashley’s behavior was while she was on the show and the way that she seemed to dramatically lose weight even going through the season was also alarming.

It looks like reality television stardom and especially her relationship with Thomas was a toxic influence.

So, what are we to make of this?

Ashley didn’t exactly make good friends with any of the Southern Charm stars. They might feel sorry for her, but they probably don’t want to hang out.

But she just uprooted her entire life (after five dates!) to move to Charleston from Santa Barbara. She crossed the country. She can’t actually know that many people.

At the same time, Thomas Ravenel is facing multiple accusations of rape. It’s serious enough that no one expects him to return to Bravo. The police are involved.

It may be that part of what’s making it hard for him to move on is that people are leery of him because of everything that they’ve heard. Ashley may feel like the only woman who’ll accept him.

This … seems like a recipe for disaster.


Thomas Markle to Daughter: Give Me Some F-ckin Money!

According to a startling new report, Thomas Markle may be nothing more than a greedy old man who wants to cash in on his daughter’s fame and fortune.

Stunning, right?

We’ll give you a few moments to pick your jaw up off the ground…

thomas markle image

Over the past several weeks, as you likely know by now, Meghan Markle has been dragged to the ends of the scorched earth by her father, Thomas, and her half-sister, Samantha.

(Samantha and Meghan shared a father, but not a mother; are 17 years apart in age; and did not grow up in the same household.)

Thomas has gone around running his mouth to any outlet with a microphone or a website, saying he hung up on Prince Harry, he’s responsible for everything Meghan has become

… and so much more ridiculous, mean-spirited nonsense.

Thomas, of course, missed the Royal Wedding in May because he was suffering a few health problems at the time — and also because he was embarrassed by a scandal in which he confessed to accepting money from paparazzi members in exchange for his permission to be photographed.

A general recluse living in Mexico, Thomas seemed to content to remain far out of the spotlight while his daughter grew into her life as The Duchess of Sussex.

That’s what we thought this spring, at least.

But, boy, were we ever mistaken!

Thomas clearly wants a relationship with Markle and, as he’s said so often, with his future grandkids.

However, that isn’t all he wants, a source tells The Daily Mirror.

“While he was working, Tom supported all his children. He was generous,” this insider says, adding of Markle’s mindset and ongoing motivation:

“He made no secret that he expected… the money he spent on them would be repaid.”

By whom? By his kids, of course!

“He says they have not given him a fuc-ing dime back,” this source says of Markle.

“He is growing increasingly bitter about it, and it has not been helped by how his ex-wife, Meghan’s mum, has been so welcomed into the royal fold.” 

Maybe that’s because she’s nice? And generous? And doesn’t think a parent is owed anything of monetary value simply because a parent did all he or she could for his or her child?

Just a theory.

“The fact she could be moving to England has not helped the situation while he is in a pokey home in Mexico,” concludes this insider.

Markle, to her credit, has not let her father’s actions and insults affect her.

At least not in public.

She has maintained the highest of high roads, just going about her Royal business and embracing her new role in life; awful relatives be damned!

The Duschess has even said she would talk to her dad again, under two specific conditions.

As for Thomas? He’s denied accusations that he’s basically seeking a payoff to shut up, but he does think Meghan owes him something.

“My daughter said she’d take care of me in my declining years,” he said recently. “I’m not talking money, I’m talking about taking care of me. That’s important to me.”

You know, it’s probably important to Meghan that her dad doesn’t act like a self-centered, entitled jackass to the press every hour of every day.

But here you both are.
