“Southern Charm” star Thomas Ravenel is revealing his finances as part of his attempt to strip his ex-Kathryn Dennis of custody.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Ravenel submitted financial documents to support his recent demand for sole physical and legal custody of their two kids Kensie and Saint.

Ravenel accuses Dennis of failing a recent drug test when it came back positive for marijuana. He is requesting the court only allow Dennis to have supervised visitation with their two kids. Dennis has disputed the test and pointed out that her hair test came back clean. A judge has yet to rule.

Ravanel has submitted the financial docs to support his claim that he can take care of the kids.

In his financial declaration, Ravenel lists his total gross monthly income as $153,255. He pulls in $2,500 from his job and another $150,155 from rental income and business profits. His monthly deductions come to $61,640 leaving him with $91,615.

The former reality star spends $5,775 on his rent, $3,500 on food and household supplies, $2,080 for day care, $1,500 on clothing for himself, $300 on clothes for the kids, $2,470 on their health insurance, $4,150 on children’s incidental expenses and $7,500 on entertainment including polo, eating out and traveling.

His total monthly expenses total $49,895.66. Ravenel also drops $15,000 a month on mortgages for vacant land. He also claims to have $1.2 million in stocks.

Ravenel recently listed his 60-acre South Carolina plantation for $3.95 million.

The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom estate in Edisto Island, SC was originally purchased for $2,586,667 back in 2006.

Back in November 2018, Ravenel filed a lawsuit against Bravo and “Southern Charm” producers demanding a judge stop them from broadcasting unaired footage on the show.

Ravenel filed the docs as part of his custody battle with Dennis. She filed for primary custody of the children back in October. Dennis had her custody taken away in 2016 after failing a drug test but was awarded joint custody this year after completing rehab and staying clean.

In his suit against Bravo, Ravenel says the network and “Southern Charm” producers “encouraged” his ex to file for custody against him to create drama on the show.

He demanded Dennis not be awarded primary custody despite her request. Ravenel, who is about to be on trial for an alleged sexual assault in South Carolina, claimed he learned that Bravo and producers have unaired footage of his kids and ex talking about the legal battle and it was to be aired on the upcoming season. The reality star sued demanding a South Carolina judge prohibit the sensitive footage from airing on the show.

Ravenel would later file docs accusing Dennis of buying drugs from friends and show producers and even accused her of committing a hit-and-run.

The case is ongoing.
