Kathryn Dennis from Southern Charm began a relationship with Chleb Ravenell in July 2020. Here is everything we know about her new man.
Chleb Ravenell has yet to appear on an episode of Southern Charm since he began dating Kathryn Dennis. Chleb started dating the reality star last summer, shortly after her scandal involving a racially insensitive emoji. Kathryn called out a Black radio host for bad-mouthing a friend of hers and included a monkey emoji alongside her rant. The radio host put her on blast, leading to Kathryn’s demise during season seven.
The reality star attempted to defend herself, but the Southern Charm cast did not believe Kathryn understood the ramifications behind what she did. After revealing her new boyfriend was, in fact, Black, Kathryn thought it absolved her of the backlash she received for the emoji. However, new cast member Leva Bonaparte believed her new relationship was a strategic move to get the media off her back. Leva may have been wrong, seeing as Chleb and Kathryn are still very much in love almost a year later.

So, who is Kathryn’s new man, Chleb Ravenell? He was born in Charleston and grew up in the suburb of Mount Pleasant, as per US Weekly. According to his LinkedIn page, Chleb went to Western Michigan University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and media studies. He was also a full-time student-athlete during his time in school. Shortly after he completed his studies, the now-32-year-old went on to play for the Calgary Stamped Football Club, where he was a wide receiver. He played with them from 2015 to 2016, for just under a year and a half. Chleb went on to have several other jobs and now works full-time as a Product Specialist for Apple in Charleston.
Chleb and Kathryn began sharing photos in similar locations last summer when they began their romance. Their first public hangout was with Chleb’s brother, Chelsie, and his girlfriend, Jaqueline Stewart, who is also a friend of Kathryn’s. They all went out to celebrate Chleb’s 32nd birthday. Jaqueline shared a photo to Instagram to capture the moment with the caption, “Happy birthday @_kbkilla. We love u! @kathryndennis @chelsieravenell.” Besides Kathryn, Chleb also has other connections to the Southern Charm cast. Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo follow him on Instagram, while Jaqueline, his brother’s girlfriend, is friendly with Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy.
Even though viewers, and even some of Kathryn’s castmates, believed her relationship with Chleb was a ploy to prove she wasn’t the racist person the media was portraying her to be, it seems she and Chleb are still going strong. Judging by his Instagram, Chleb absolutely adores Kathryn, showering her with his love and affection. Not to mention, he loves her children as if they were his own. Chleb may be the one for Kathryn.
