Kathryn Dennis celebrated one year of dating boyfriend Chleb Ravenell this weekend.
The “Southern Charm” star, 29, took to Instagram on Saturday to honor her beau with a special post on their anniversary.
“12 months down,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself in a figure-hugging black dress while posing with Ravenell, 32, inside a Charleston nightclub.
Though they were first linked in the summer of 2020, Dennis and Ravenell made their romance Instagram-official that October. Their partnership has since experienced a series of highs and lows.
In April, Dennis and Ravenell moved into a Charleston apartment following a custody dispute between Dennis and ex Thomas Ravenel over their two children, Kensie, 6, and Saint, 4.
Dennis leaned on Ravenell after temporarily losing custody of her kids.
On the latest season of “Southern Charm,” Dennis was forced to defend her relationship with Ravenell after co-star Leva Bonaparte accused her of using it to sidestep racism allegations.
“That was a strategic move, I guess,” said Bonaparte, the Bravo show’s first cast member of color. “Banging a black guy doesn’t make you woke.”
In the spring of 2020, Dennis was embroiled in controversy after using a racially insensitive emoji while messaging Tamika Gadsen, a black radio DJ in Charleston. Gadsen said that Dennis sent her a monkey emoji after Gadsen spoke out against local organizers of a Donald Trump rally.
Dennis — who later apologized for her “offensive” message — told co-star Shep Rose why she kept her relationship with Ravenell under wraps at the time.
“My boyfriend is black,” she told Rose over lunch. “Chleb and I have known each other since … we started flirting and kind of hanging out probably before the quarantine. [It was] a few months ago, I don’t know the exact date.”
“As I’m talking to Leva Bonaparte about the monkey emoji, well, I could easily be like, ‘Yeah, well, I do have a black boyfriend,’” she added. “But I’m not going to say that because I don’t want people to be like, ‘Oh, that’s convenient.’”
