According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a South Carolina judge has granted Dennis’ request to seal the entire file.
She had pleaded with the judge to seal the case and accused her ex of posting disparaging comments about her on social media and allegedly releasing a video of her recorded by a private detective.
Dennis argued it is in the best interest of their kids to not allow the public to continue to read about the custody battle. Ravenel, for his part, had been seeking to gag Dennis and “Southern Charm” producers from talking about the details of the battle.
The judge granted the motion and the decision to seal the case will keep all filings, movement, and information kept from others seeing it.
Back in November 2018, Thomas 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 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 still active and has yet to be closed.
