Southern Charm’s Kathryn Dennis lost the never-ending battle for custody of her children to Thomas Ravenel.
Kathryn Dennis on schedule
The reality TV star has been going back and forth with Ravenel in court for years. She wanted custody of her children, Kensington “Kensie” Calhoun Ravenel, 9, and St. Julien “Saint” Rembert Ravenel, 7.
Their father confirmed it All about tea that he was awarded full custody of the puppies. “I was given sole custody.” This means “I make all parenting decisions.” As for their mother,
“Kathryn (Dennis) is entitled to supervised visitation by an approved (court approved) supervisor from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every other weekend.”
Wow, that’s rough. Ravenel provided more details. “You can’t spend the night with the children.” I drop the kids off halfway between Aiken and Charleston where Kathryn picks them up.
Kathryn first lost custody of her children in 2016 after she tested positive for drugs. Two years later, he tried to regain control, taking advantage of Ravenel’s nanny at the time, Dawn Ledwell, who accused him of rape.
Kathryn Dennis’s experiments have failed
By 2019, Dennis lost to Ravenel again in court when he retained full legal custody and Dennis was relegated to scheduled visitation and ordered to hire a full-time nanny for their children.
In 2020, Ravenel accused Dennis of again abusing drugs and being neglectful of the children. At that point, Dennis was downgraded again to supervised visits every other weekend.
This latest court victory led to this. Ravenel can now make all the decisions about the children without Dennis’ input. This includes “education, religious instruction, health care, extracurricular activities and travel.”
Ravenel is happy to be done with all the custody drama. “I am beyond grateful for the outcome of this custody battle and that I have sole custody of my children,” she told the blog. “Family is the most important thing in my life and I will do everything to ensure that my children have a happy and stable future.”
Ravenel acknowledged how complicated the process was. “It was a challenging journey, but with the support of my loved ones and my legal team, justice prevailed.”
Kathryn Dennis’ children were alone
Dennis has now commented on the harsh decision of the courts, but his followers are aware that Dennis had problems with his children roaming the streets. In an incident in 2020, his son Saint, who was four years old at the time, had to be taken home twice by strangers.
The first time he left home, a neighbor brought him back. It was found again a few hours later and a bystander called the police. Now that Dennis has lost the kids in this long battle, he is in the process of paying a court-ordered supervisor $35+ an hour to attend Kensie and Saint’s supervised visitation.
