Todd married his first wife Teresa Terry in 1988 at the age of 21 while she was 19 but the couple divorced in 1996 after 7 years of marriage. According to MailOnline they obtained court documents in which Terry accused Chrisley of waging a ‘campaign of mental and physical abuse,’ of battering her and once battled her with closed fist after stripping her naked. She also claimed that he wielded a knife and threatened to kill her and that one one occasion she witnessed him beat his own mother.

The couple had previously separated multiple times but in November 1994 Teresa filed a domestic violence complaint and moved out of their marital home.

When Teresa left their marital home she took Kyle with her and intended to collect Lindsie later as she was with Chrisley’s parents at the time but when she went to take her Chrisley wouldn’t allow her.

I’ve known him a very long time and I know that he’s not all bad. There’s good in him. He can be very witty and fun company, but if he doesn’t get what he wants you’d better believe there will be consequences.’

She revealed that Chrisley was filming her and sent the footage to a television special on cheating wives.
