SOUTHERN CHARM STAR SOBERING UP IN MALIBU
Last month this website exclusively reported that Kathryn Dennis – star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm reality show – had failed a court-ordered drug test connected to her custody battle with co-star Thomas Ravenel.
Ravenel, 54, sued Dennis for custody of the couple’s children – two-year-old daughter Kensington Calhoun Ravenel and seven-month-old son St. Julien Rembert Ravenel (a.k.a. “Saint”).
Back in April, we exclusively reported on allegations that Dennis had engaged in a long-term romantic relationship with a man accused of providing her marijuana – which she allegedly smoked while pregnant.
Dennis denied those claims – as did her alleged dealer/ lover.
Dennis’ New York City agent threatened to sue us over that report – but we stood by our story (and no lawsuit was filed).
The latest drama?
According to our sources, Dennis voluntarily checked herself into a Malibu, California-based drug rehabilitation center earlier this month to seek unspecified treatment.
Here’s one of the pictures Dennis posted to social media which our sources say is part of her rehabilitation …

“This is a step in the right direction for her for her health as well as for custody of her children,” a source familiar with the situation told us.
We reached out to Dennis and Ravenel for comment but did not receive responses. That’s not surprising, though, as both have reportedly been placed under gag orders when it comes to speaking with the media about their ongoing case.
Ravenel and Dennis’ combative relationship has been ratings gold for Southern Charm – which recently concluded its third season.
Ravenel has had drug issues in his past, as well. In 2007, his promising political career was derailed when a cocaine charge forced him to resign as treasurer of South Carolina – just six months after he was sworn in.
