‘Chrisley Knows Best’ is a reality series that follows the lives of real-estate tycoon Todd Chrisley and his family, who reside in Georgia. The show first premiered in 2014 and became a massive success, as it gave the viewers an insight into how the Chrisleys go about their days. It even got a spinoff series, ‘Growing Up Chrisley,’ that focuses on Chase and Savannah Chrisley, the eldest children of clan. The husband and wife have gone through their fair share of ups and downs, including some serious legal trouble. Thus, many must be curious to know about the current standing of their relationship. Well, here’s what we know about it!
Todd and Julie Chrisley’s Chrisley Knows Best Journey
Todd and Julie married in May 1996 and have three children — Chase, Savannah, and Grayson Chrisley. Before his marriage to Julie, Todd was married to his high school flame Teresa Terry and had two children with her — a daughter named Lindsie Chrisley Campbell and a son named Kyle Chrisley. The latter has a biological daughter, Chloe, who is raised by Todd and Julie due to Kyle’s battles with substance abuse. The family is rounded up by Todd’s mother, Faye Chrisley AKA Nanny Faye.
Even before the reality series first aired, rumors were circulating regarding Todd’s sexuality, which he responded to good-naturedly. “I’m flattered that people think I can get laid on both ends. So, that doesn’t bother me,” Todd said in an interview on The Domenick Nati Show. “And my wife certainly is flattered that as many men want her husband as there are women. With that being said, I’m never going to have a drought. You, on the other hand, might. But Todd will never have a drought.”
Throughout the show, Todd and Julie’s relationship has been quite steady. “I was fortunate enough to marry the only woman I’ve ever loved, my best friend, my person that truly gave me the confidence to take on this crazy world and prosper spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, and financially, the best mother I could have ever hoped to have for our kids,” Todd wrote in an Instagram post in 2020.
Since August of 2018, the couple launched their own podcast, ‘Chrisley Confessions,’ where they talk about various things and raise awareness regarding issues close to their hearts. While Todd and Julie have weathered many storms, the legal troubles certainly put a strain on their marriage. Given the recent events, many cannot help but ask if the two have stayed together or gone on their separate paths.
Are Todd and Julie Chrisley Still Together?
Yes, Todd and Julie are still together, and it is visibly evident that the two adore each other. On Julie’s birthday in January 2022, Todd shared a cute photo on Instagram with a heartfelt caption expressing his affection for the love of his life. It read, “Today was the birthday of my beauty @juliechrisley , to say in words how blessed we are to have you in our lives isn’t possible so let me just say , Thank you God , we are not deserving of this wonderful woman you have given us but she makes us better each day and hopefully one day we will come close to her greatness. To the moon and back babe, to the moon and back .”
However, Todd and Julie’s future together might be slightly uncertain, as, in 2019, the couple was indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta for tax evasion, reported to have hidden the income they gained through reality series from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In February 2022, a new indictment was filed against the Chrisley couple, and a three-week trial began in May 2022.
On June 7, 2022, Todd and Julie Chrisley were found guilty of conspiring to defraud community banks out of more than $30 million by submitting fake papers to avail fraudulent loans, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Ryan Buchanan in Atlanta. The reality stars were also found guilty of inspiration to defraud the IRS and tax evasion. Additionally, Julie was convicted of wire fraud and obstruction of justice. As of writing, Todd and Julie are allowed to remain free on bond by U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross, albeit under several restrictions.
The couple’s location is under surveillance, the two are confined to their homes, and the only reasons they can leave their residence include work, medical or court appointments. Moreover, Todd and Julie’s spending has been limited, and they must alert their probation officers if they plan to spend anything over $1,000. The couple may face up to 30 years in prison though they are certainly hoping to appeal the verdict. We wish all the involved parties the best and hope that the truth prevails.
