Todd Chrisley is the reality TV star who is best known for his luxurious lifestyle on the family show. He was already a wealthy man before the show began and the show only made his presence known on a national level. From what we see on screen, he is not the typical father; brash and honest, the witty Chrisley keeps his family in line with his brutally tough form of parenting. His precarious financial habit caused him bankruptcy in 2014 but it didn’t seem to matter as life continued for the famed family.
Date of Birth: April 6, 1969

His childhood and educational background is unknown as he prefers people focusing on his works rather than his personal life. Before he started the Chrisley Knows Best show in 2014, he had appeared on a number of TV shows but none was as successful as his own. He is not only a pro in the TV business but is also looking to dominate the Nashville music scene by signing a record deal early 2017.
As much as he seems to be the image of perfection on his shows, his family is anything but perfect. The self-made millionaire and his family are always on the media’s radar especially with the numerous legal issues and scandals surrounding their family.

He featured on just the first season of the reality show and fell out with his famous father shortly after. The oldest Chrisley son was for a long time addicted to drugs but has now gone for rehab.
He went public once with claims that his wealthy father ruined his life and the lives of his youngest three children, spoiling them with so much love. The popular Todd did not keep quiet on this and he responded that his son is bipolar and he loves him still. The Patriarch also mentioned that his son had to leave the show after the debut season because he was never taking his medications and was frequently disrespectful to the crew members.
He is now married to Alexus Whilby but is a father to Chloe Chrisley (born November 10, 2012) with ex-girlfriend Angela Victoria Johnson. For years, it was a battle between the reality TV father and his son who gets physical custody to his granddaughter. Apparently, Todd is the patriarch of perfection who seems to know what is best even for his son’s daughter.
It took several court cases and many public bashings on the internet but at the end Chloe’s grandparents became her guardian and as expected, they are every bit the doting grandparents to her. Since they make decisions for her now, they decided she would be on the family TV show whether her father is against it or not.
