Disgraced former Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel scored a small courtroom victory against Kathryn Dennis.
But now she's getting a victory of her own -- a sworn affidavit about Thomas and Ashley's continued, secret relationship.
She got her hands on text messages, plus testimony about Thomas' reliance upon nannies, Ashley, and alcohol.
The Blast reports that Kathryn Dennis has scored a small victory in her custody battle with Thomas Ravenel.
Court documents reveal that a woman named Lara Dawson was roommates with Ashley Jacobs.
The duration of their roommate status lasted from September 2018 until January 2019.
(Notably, this was not during a time in which Ashley or Thomas were very open about being in each other's orbits)
Lara encountered Thomas on numerous occassions during this time period.
According to Lara's affidavit, she accused Thomas of having a drinking problem.
She also says that Ashley "corroborated" her suspicion.
"Whenever she [Ashley] and Thomas would break up," Lara recalls. "She’d always tell me the truth about what had been occurring over at his house."
"She always talked about his alcoholism," Lara says. "And the fact that she was tired of taking care of his children."
And yes, there was more about Thomas' kids.
Lara says that she learned that Thomas had once had once become so drunk that he couldn't even read his children a book.
From what she gleaned through Ashley, he was also heavily reliant upon the nanny to care for Kensie and Saint.
Apparently, Ashley would speak very directly about her experiences with Thomas whenever they would temporarily break up.
Lara is very direct about not being a neutral observer.
She describes Ashley as having a terrible temper and being "extremely vindictive."
To back up her statements, Lara submitted to the court text conversations that she had exchanged with Ashley.
In the mean time, we already reported on Thomas Ravenel's small win.
Citing Kathryn's decision to speak about the custody battle on Southern Charm, the judge unsealed the case.
Now we know more: that Thomas was outraged that Kathryn had spoken about him.
From what The Blast reports, it doesn't sound like he was worried about the privacy of their children.
Instead, he was apparently just unhappy that Kathryn was making him look bad.
Thomas' unhappiness has led him to drag even Andy Cohen into this battle.
Notably, he had already accused Bravo of pushing Kathryn to seek sole custody for reality TV drama.
But he's taken specific issue with Kathryn's latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
While there, she said something to the effect that Thomas wouldn't leave her alone.
Andy responded with encouragement, telling Kathryn "everyone is rooting for you."
In Thomas' eyes, this interview constituted Andy actively disparaging him and telling the world that Thomas was a liar.
That's ... quite a take.
And he continues to express his unhappiness at Bravo for not mentioning in court that they intended to address the custody battle on the show.
Some may argue that it's common sense that a reality star would discuss important life events on the reality show on which she stars.
But it's not clear how that would go over as a legal argument.
We suppose that we'll all find out.
