Thomas Ravenel hit with sexual assault allegations by Debbie Holloway
It seemed like Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel was starting to calm down and stay out of trouble especially since the birth of his son, Saint 2 years ago, but it looks like he is back to his old ways as he now stands accused of sexual assault by a woman he met on Tinder in 2015 named Debbie Holloway.
Debbie signed an NDA on June 1, 2016 in exchange for $200,000, but her daughter Real estate agent Ashley Perkins, did not. People spoke to Ashley Thursday who claimed that her mother went on a date with Ravenel for the first time on Dec. 25, 2015 which ended sexual assault.
Ashley went in to some rather graphic details about the evening saying Ravenel held her mom’s arms back and stuck his fingers inside her vagina and anus.
“Her wrists were starting to look bad the next morning. I said, ‘We need to see who we’re dealing with.’ She didn’t want to do anything. She was scared to go to court. I said right now you don’t want to do anything, let me take a picture of your wrist. Let’s get some evidence in case you want to do something,” said Ashley, 29.
As far as what Ashley wants,
” I want to see Thomas Ravenel removed from Bravo and not just because of what he allegedly did to my mother but because of the negative comments he posts on a regular basis,” she said. “Also, the way Thomas treats women on the show Southern Charm is totally disrespectful to women everywhere and promotes an antiquated attitude of the ‘good ole boys’ network and ‘boys will be boys which is too commonly accepted. I want to see not only Thomas removed from the show but for Bravo to apologize to the audience for allowing Thomas to remain on the show with his reckless, threatening, and demeaning attitude to women.”
Ravenels attorney, Richard P. Terbrusch, responded with this statement,
“My client enjoys a certain degree of fame and unfortunately has become – unfairly – a target for an individual who has, in my opinion, dubious motivations.”
Well I have to say I find it rather curious that Ashley is coming forward just now, 2 years after the alleged event, and a a year and a half after the $200 K. Perhaps she would like some money in exchange for an NDA.
The two have since moved away from Charleston and are now living in Florida.
Ravenel won a custody battle for his 2 children with ex-girlfriend and Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis, daughter Kensie, 4, and son Saint, 2½ –ironically because the courts found Thomas to be a better parent after Dennis had some issues with drug use and the law. He is currently dating Hospice nurse, Ashley Jacobs.
