According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Dennis claims that despite a restraining order in place against Ravenel, he has allegedly posted disparaging comments about her on social media and "secretly released to the media (either by himself or through his agents) a video recorded by his private detective of surveillance showing that she scraped a neighbor’s vehicle while backing out of her parking space in an effort to disparage the Plaintiff.”
She argues it is in the best interest of their kids to not allow the public to continue to read about the custody battle.
Kathryn Dennis says she wants to prevent “detailed deposition testimony and/or other testimony that negatively portrays the Defendant’s parenting abilities from being made public. Similarly, she does not want any negative allegations made against her being posted all over the news.”
Dennis questions whether Ravenel would “really want the entire 4 hours deposition transcript of the parties former Nanny with numerous detailed negative statements about the Defendant’s conduct and character to be part of the public record?”
She is asking for the judge to grant her motion and seal the case and award her attorney fees.
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 Kathryn 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 is demanding 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.
Dennis fired back denying the allegations and demanded the lawsuit be dismissed. She accused him of past drug use and claimed he hired a private eye to follow her allegedly in violation of the restraining order in place.
The custody battle is ongoing.
