Who is her former husband Todd Chrisley?

Todd was born in Georgia, USA, on 6 April 1969 – his zodiac sign is Aries, and he holds American nationality.

It’s believed that Todd made most of his initial wealth with his involvement in the real estate business. He once owned Chrisley Asset Management; it was founded in 2002, and closed in 2008 due to the property market collapse. A year or two prior to the premiere of his show “Chrisley Knows Best”, Todd filed for bankruptcy, and was at that point $50 million in debt.

In 2019, he was charged with tax evasion and fraud, and was ordered to pay around $110,000.

Besides “Chrisley Knows Best”, Todd has produced and starred in a couple of other shows.


In 2017, he starred alongside Ali Landry Monteverde and Savannah Chrisley in the talk-show “According to Chrisley”, which featured him talking about various topics with his guests. He then starred in the 2019 reality series “Growing Up Chrisley”, which follows his children Savannah and Chase as they’re travelling around their state, trying to prove to their father that they can be independent. Most recently, in 2021 Todd produced and starred in the family show “Chrisley Knows Thanksgiving”.

He’s also a bit of an actor, with a single acting credit: he appeared in the 2016 action adventure comedy movie “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens”, which received mostly negative reviews.
