Last week, the world learned that disgraced former Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel hired a private invesgiator to stalk Kathryn Dennis for months.
Now, he's accusing her of conspiring with Nanny Dawn Ledwell, who has accused him of rape, before either of them came forward.
Thomas even claims to have their messaging history with which to prove it.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Thomas is doubling down on an old conspiracy theory.
He alleges that Kathryn Dennis' decision to file for full custody of 5-year-old Kensie and 3-year-old Saint is just a publicity stunt for her reality career.
(It's funny how as soon as he was no longer welcome on the show, he suddenly treated Southern Charm as his enemy)
For months, now, Thomas has insisted in court that Kathryn and Bravo cooked up this custody war to give her a new storyline.
Now, he's adding another piece to that mix -- the allegation that Kathryn also sonspired with Nanny Dawn Ledwell.
And Thomas claims to have the phone records to prove it.
"The more information uncovered about Kathryn’s actitivies, the more Kathryn was found to be connected to Dawn," Thomas reports.
"On Sunday, May 6, 2018, I requested that Kathryn submit to a drug test in anticipation of our coming mediation," he recalls.
The mediation was "to discuss changes in her visitation and child support."
"I needed to know she was drug free to offer her more time," Thomas explains.
"The very next day …. The day I 'made' Kathryn submit to a drug test," he remarks. "Dawn went to the police and filed a criminal complaint against me."
Thomas tells the court that Nanny Dawn Ledwell spoke to Kathryn twice the day she went to see the police.
He does at least acknowledge that he was aware that she accused of a brutal sexual assault in 2015.
Kathryn on this same day, apparently Kathryn called a producer -- which may have happened for any number of reasons.
Most interestingly, Thomas claims that Kathryn paid a law firm $20,000 from the day Dawn filed with the police, before the information was even public.
It's clear that he wants the court to conclude that Kathryn, Ledwell, and Bravo are all in cahoots -- to try to ruin his life.
Some of Thomas' in-court arguments sound a little odd.
First of all, it is extremely normal for a mother and her child's former nanny to stay in touch in some capacity.
Considering what Dawn had seen from inside of Kathryn's home, they may have felt closer to each other through their shared experiences with Thomas.
Dawn may have been giving Kathryn a head's up that she was finally going to police.
Thomas might like the idea of it being some elaborate lie, but he'll stand trial for rape because Dawn told her truth.
Thomas is hoping to once again expose the public to his preferred narrative.
He thinks that Kathryn is seeking custody because she wants reality TV cred, not to get them out of the house of an alleged rapistt who may soon go to prison.
But repeating his version of what happened in court documents, he may hope to repeat the story long enough to sway public opinion.
Why is that? Maybe the dude just likes to be liked.
But, at thse risk of sounding like conspiracy theorists, one could almost wonder if Thomas is doing a practice run for his rape trial.
Perhaps Thomas some some underlying evidence that Dawn, Kathryn, or even Bravo discussed further details or concocted the scheme he describes.
If so ... we would like to see it.
We're always open to learning new facts of a case.
In the mean time, it sounds like wasted hot air from a man desperate to keep his reputation afloat before his upcoming criminal trial.
