“Southern Charm” sidekick J. D. Madison is now the second member of the reality show’s cast, after Thomas Ravenel, sexual assault allegations leveled against him in recent months.

According to the police in Mount Pleasant, S. C., an unnamed accuser claims to be “victims of sexual violence the night of the solar eclipse of last year” and the name Madison as the attacker.

According to a 25 August police report obtained by Page Six on Friday, the alleged victim — whose name and the pronouns were redacted from the report — said that she was at someone’s home when Madison “deliberately broke a glass, and when [edited] went to clean it up, he and his friends slipped a drug in [edited] and [edited] friends drink.” The prosecutor claimed to have not remembered anything from that point until they arrived at a local bar called the Vickerys.

The alleged victim claimed to have called a friend to pick them up because they weren’t feeling “right” and believed that they would have drugged. She later remembered “waking up in [edit] bedroom with Mr. Madison forcibly raping and sodomizing”.

The prosecutor was only able to get a piece of the night together, after a lunch with a friend on Aug. 25, it was claimed.

Thomas Ravenel was accused of sexual abuse by his children’s former nanny, and has since removed himself from the cast of the series.


The allegations against Madison, 44, comes just a few months after Ravenel, 56, was accused of sexual abuse by his children’s former nanny, and by a woman he met via Tinder.

Both the police and the Haymaker, the production company behind ” Southern Charm,” are investigating the claims against Ravenel.
