Relationship with Todd Chrisley
While it is true that the couple had a short marriage, Teresa Terry deserves a boost for helping her ex-husband manage the pitfalls of glory and also putting a lot of things in order before their tragic separation.
Todd and Teresa first met when they were high school students in Westminster, South Carolina. At the time, Terry was only 17 years old, while she was only 19. Todd’s friends usually met at his family’s home on weekends or after school at the time. After things got serious between Teresa Terry and Toddy, they both started hanging out and watching movies together.
At the age of 19, Teresa Terry became pregnant with Michael’s first child, then 21 years old. A responsible young man, the actor decides to make her his wife. After their elaborate marriage, the couple’s love for each other became stronger than Chrisley turned out to be very considerate.
When the time came, his daughter Lindsie Michael Todd Chrisley arrived, bringing so much joy to her proud parents. However, things began to change gradually after the arrival of their second child – Kyle Chrisley – who arrived fifteen months after his older sister.
In an exclusive interview, Teresa Terry revealed that she had filed for divorce from her acting husband because he had abused her several times. She also accused him of fighting for little things that don’t really matter.
Terry described Todd as an authoritarian and perfectionist who was a thorn in his side during their turbulent marriage. Teresa said that at one point, she was tired of their fight and her ex-husband’s constant corrections, which led her to decide to end their marriage in 1994.
The last drop of water that broke the camel’s back was when Todd allegedly damaged Terry’s personal belongings in December 1992. The actor, who attacked his wife at the time, also allegedly attacked Teresa’s mother under the influence of alcohol.
His wife also claimed that he beat her on 21 October 1994 while she was driving and threatened to kill her on 2 November 1994 with a knife, ripping her underwear and threatening to kill her if she calls the cops.
Teresa Terry later filed a domestic violence complaint against her husband. She finally left home, taking Kyle, who was three years old at the time, with her. She tried to take Lindsie, five years old, but her husband stopped her.
In order to obtain custody of her daughter, Terry filed a complaint about “illegal abduction” against her husband. She subsequently dropped the domestic violence complaint after their divorce was finalized in 1996. The couple then obtained joint physical and legal custody of Kyle and Lindsie. Teresa then moved to South Carolina to spend time with her children.
Shortly thereafter, in 2000, Todd moved to Atlanta and filed a custody complaint, seeking sole custody of their children. The battle lasted until 2002 when the couple was awarded joint custody of their children but under certain conditions.
The judge read that their children resided in Atlanta, went to school in the city and would make their father’s house in Atlanta their primary residence. However, they were allowed to visit their mother for three weekends in even years, including holidays and vacation periods.
However, the arrangement did not take place because Todd had to move to California. Soon after, his daughter moved to California to stay with him, but Kyle chose to live outside his father’s mansion.
Teresa Terry currently lives with her husband, two children, and four grandchildren in Oklahoma while Chris lives happily with Julie Chrisley whom he married shortly after his first failed marriage.
The Georgian real estate tycoon shares three children – Chase Chrisley (born 1997), Savannah Chrisley (born 1998) and Grayson Chrisley (born 2006) – with Julie who is also his business partner and a popular face in the Chrisley Know TV series.
