Todd Chrisley was born in Georgia and raised in Westminster, South Carolina. He made a living as a real estate tycoon before rising to fame as the star of USA Network’s Chrisley Knows Best.
The reality show premiered in 2014 and follows the lives of Todd, his wife, Julie Chrisley, and their kids. The businessman shares three children with Julie, daughter Savannah Chrisley and sons Chase Chrisley and Grayson Chrisley.
He is also the father of Lindsie Chrisley and Kyle Chrisley whom he shares with ex-wife, Teresa Terry. The former spouses and high school sweethearts were married for six years before calling it quits in 1996. Todd married Julie the same year his divorce was finalized.
The success of Chrisley Knows Best led to multiple spinoff series for Todd and his family, including According to Chrisley (which lasted one season), What’s Cooking With Julie Chrisley (a web series) and Growing Up Chrisley (starring Savannah and Chase).
Todd and Julie made headlines in August 2019 after they were accused of owing more than $2.1 million in unpaid state taxes, penalties and interest to the Georgia Department of Revenue. The couple settled in September 2019, agreeing to pay $150,000. They still face federal tax evasion charges but have pleaded not guilty.
The TV personality’s ongoing drama with his estranged daughter Lindsie has also continued to plague the family. The father and daughter have publicly feuded for years, with Todd claiming that Lindsie leaked information about his finances to an investigator, which led to his tax evasion case.
