Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis temporarily loses custody of the two children she shares with ex Thomas Ravenel
A year after opening up about their ‘great’ co-parenting arrangement, Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis has temporarily lost custody of the two children she shares with her ex Thomas Ravenel.
Ravenel’s attorney confirmed to People that the former reality star had temporarily regained primary custody of their children Kensie, six, and Saint, four, and that Dennis, 29, will now be having supervised, daytime weekend visits with them.
Ravenel, 58, will be moving to Aiken, South Carolina with them, however the reason behind their custody arrangement change remains a mystery due to the sealed court documents.

Ravenel filed to request his ex have supervised visitation on October 23, 2020, and on February 25, 2021 the temporary custody order was filled, according to Page Six.
In a statement given to People, Ravenel’s lawyer confirmed the new custody deal but declined to disclose the circumstances that led to the change.
‘I can confirm the information released last week that Ms. Dennis currently has weekend, daytime supervised visitation with the parties’ minor children and that Mr. Ravenel plans to relocate with the children to Aiken, South Carolina this summer,’ Ravenel’s attorney said.
‘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,’ the statement 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.’
Dennis and Ravenel previously shared joint custody of their children, and the arrangement worked well for the exes, according to the Southern Charm star.
‘We actually have a great coparenting relationship,’ she told Us Weekly in November 2019.
‘It’s good for him, it’s good for me. We’re moving forward, which is the first time I’ve said that in a long time and it feels good.’
That was then: The couple first began dating in 2013 before splitting up for good in 2016
Better terms? Back in November, Dennis said they had come to a co-parenting arrangement that worked for both of them
The positive words strikes a contrast to their otherwise ugly custody battle, with Ravenel accusing Dennis of being addicted to prescription medications and marijuana, among other allegations. Dennis has denied the accusations.
Ravenel and Dennis first began dating in 2013 before splitting up for good in 2016.
Nowadays they both have moved on romantically.
Ravenel has since welcomed another child, a baby boy named Jonathan Jackson, with Heather Mascoe. The couple subsequently became engaged.
Meanwhile, Dennis has begun a relationship with Chleb Ravenell.
