When Shep Rose got the news, Thomas was actually the last person on his mind. “I think Thomas can handle himself,” he said. “I’m more worried about his family.”

However, one castmate decided to keep her opinions to herself for fear of retribution. “I’m not saying anything negative about Thomas because I don’t want to be sued,” Cameran Eubanks said. “Sorry.”

Thomas was arrested in September 2018 on assault and battery charges. He was accused of sexual assault by his former nanny. Following his arrest, a judge ruled that his case will go to trial.
