Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis faked their lives for Southern Charm, has learned!

According to Charleston County documents obtained by, the former couple lived together in Florida before the birth of their daughter, despite the show being focused on their lives in South Carolina.

Allison claimed they “first settled” in Edisto Island, and only moved to Downtown Charleston “for the filming of the second season of Southern Charm” around August 2014.

Kathryn, 24, later gave birth to St. Julien Rembert Ravenel in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina in 2015.


“I began watching my granddaughter almost every weekend and whenever their nanny, Dawn Ledwell, needed a break,” Allison claimed in court documents asking a judge to grant her time with Kensington and Saint while Kathryn was in rehab.

“During their time living in Edisto and Charlotte Street, Thomas would often ask Kathryn to leave,” Allison continued. “Kathryn would have me come pick up her and her daughter and they would stay with me and my husband. This became a regular occurrence during Season 2 filming.”

“Kathryn and her daughter lived with us from January 2015 until October 2015 until she moved to Mt. Pleasant for filming of Season 3,” Allison concluded. “We would not allow Southern Charm to film at our house so Kathryn moved … shortly before her son’s birth.”
