In interviews with various media outlets, real estate agent and model Ashley Perkins said her mother, Debbie Holloway Perkins, met Ravenel on Tinder in October 2015, and was sexually assaulted by the reality star when they went out on a date a few months later.

Perkins told People that Ravenel invited her mother to his home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, where he held her down, digitally penetrated her and stuck his penis in her face, ignoring her protests.

In a statement to People, Ravenel’s attorney, Richard P. Terbrusch said, “My client enjoys a certain degree of fame and unfortunately has become – unfairly – a target for an individual who has, in my opinion, dubious motivations.”

Ravenel, a former politician who once ran a failed campaign for the U.S. Senate as an Independent, has starred on the Bravo reality series “Southern Charm” since 2014. The fifth season of the show premiered in February.

“Haymaker, the production company for ‘Southern Charm,’ and Bravo take allegations like these very seriously,” NBCU said in a statement to TheWrap Friday. “Haymaker is conducting an investigation, and once all the information is gathered and carefully reviewed, appropriate action will be taken.”
