The Truth About Kathryn Dennis' New Custody Arrangement

It looks like Southern Charm stars Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis' custody battle may have another bump in the road. As reported by People, Dennis temporarily lost custody of her two children with Ravenel more than a year after settling the long-standing custody battle. Ravenel revealed the news in early March 2021 to Page Six that he has temporarily regained primary custody of their two children, Kensie and Saint. Additionally, the publication reports that Ravenel filed to request Dennis have supervised visitation in October 2020. The motion was later officially filed in February 2021. 

Ravenel's attorney confirmed in a statement to People that Dennis will have supervised weekend visitation. The reason for the change has yet to be revealed, for the court documents remain sealed as of this writing. "Due to the sensitive nature of the issues involved, all documents in this case have been sealed, meaning the public cannot access them, and neither Mr. Ravenel, Ms. Dennis, nor their respective attorneys are permitted to release them to third parties," Ravenel's attorney continued. "As such, and in keeping with the spirit of the protective order, I will not go into detail regarding the circumstances that necessitated the changes to the parties' custodial arrangement."

Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel's custody battle has lasted years

Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel's tumultuous custody battle over their children hasn't been the easiest process. The former couple's ongoing legal battle has lasted since their split in 2016, even becoming the storyline for Southern Charm's fourth season. In 2017, Ravenel was granted custody of their two children, per Us Weekly. Unfortunately, however, the custody battle didn't end there. Things began to get messy between the former lovers, as Dennis was awarded joint custody in 2019 following Ravenel's sexual assault and battery charges against their former nanny.

In July 2019, Ravenel made heavy claims about Dennis being "addicted to prescription medications, marijuana, alcohol, shopping and sex," per court documents obtained by the Daily Mail. Dennis' lawyer argued that the Southern Charm alum's claims were false. "For ethical reasons, I try to avoid making any statements to the press whatsoever," Dennis' lawyer says in a statement told People. "However, Kathryn obviously denies all of this and I believe that the submissions to the Court that we have made discredit such allegations."

Although Dennis and Ravenel seemed to reach a settlement in November 2019, it seems that the battle isn't over yet. We'll just have to keep our eyes peeled for what's to come.
