Teresa Terry Net Worth & Bio
Teresa Terry was born in 1973, so even without her exact birthdate, we can at least say that she is 47 years old as of 2020. The 47-year-old was born in Westminster, South Carolina. Teresa Terry is no celebrity but, at point of time, was married to one. She is the ex-wife of one of the most prominent personalities in the world of Real Estate, ‘Chrisley Knows Best‘ star, Todd Chrisley.
However, Teresa Terry is an old flame in Todd Chrisley’s life. They were a long way through their divorce by the time Todd Chrisley became a celebrity. Many people are not even aware of his previous married life. It makes the task of estimating Teresa Terry’s net worth an impossible feat. So, Teresa Terry’s net worth, for now, remains under review.
However, her husband Todd Chrisley’s net worth as of 2020 is $5 million. Most fans already know that Todd Christley is bankrupt after multiple counts of fraud and tax evasion charges. He owes more than $5 million in unpaid tax money, most of which he could not pay because of his flashy lifestyle from big homes to glamorous cars that you also see him flaunting in ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’
Moreover, he still is $49 million in debt but is still in the belief of having at least $4.2 million in assets.
Teresa Terry’s Married Life & Children
Teresa Terry was in high school when she met Todd Chrisley, who was two years older than her. Terry, who was 17, fell in head over heels for Todd Chrisley, who was 19 years old. Chrisley’s parents and family were very welcoming to Teresa Terry, and she would go over to his house every chance she could from after school to spend entire weekends there.
Two years into dating, Teresa Terry was pregnant with Todd Chrisley’s child. We all know how conservative the South can get, which may be the reason Teresa Terry married her high school sweetheart.
“It was a big deal,” Teresa said further conveying that they wouldn’t even have the wedding if she didn’t become pregnant.
Explaining more about her wedding she said, “There were six attendants on both sides and even though the town where we lived wasn’t big the church was full.”
Their first child was a daughter, Lindsie Chrisley, who you may know well from her appearance in ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’ Just 15 months after the birth of their daughter, she had another son, Kyle Chrisley, who also was briefly a star of the show since the series also features Todd’s personal family life.
Teresa Terry’s Divorce; what was the Cause?
Marital life was pretty bliss until then for Teresa Terry, but it went downhill from that point very soon. During the birth of their children, Todd bid goodbye to his initial dreams of being a model or acting in soap opera and instead chose to indulge in the growing and highly profitable real estate business. You can say it paid off well, considering how he was able to afford a house almost instantly in his new career.
However, not soon after, according to Teresa, he became an alcoholic and abusive towards her. He would both physically and emotionally abuse her, at one point battering her after stripping her naked and then wielding a knife to threaten her at another. She even saw him abusing his own mother, Faye Chrisley, at one point and finally called it quits on their marriage. Their divorce became final as of 1996.
Life After Divorce; What is She Doing Now?
We are not able to keep proper tabs on Teresa Terry, who makes it clear that she, too, does not want any media attention. She leads a private life now away from the scandals and controversies, the likes of which her husband and children currently face. Many outlets, however, do say that Teresa Terry is already remarried.
The information about her new husband or family is a mystery. She is currently believed to live in Oklahoma, happily in her New Married Life. She seems t have a good relationship with her children just like her ex-husband. However, her children do share a tumultuous relationship with their father, which we shall discuss now.
The Children’s Relationship with Their Father
The children never did really have proper relationships with their father, Todd Chrisley. After their parents’ divorce, they were put on joint custody, but as Todd’s TV career took off and he had to go to California. He used the fact that his children were old enough to choose who they can live with.
Their daughter Lindsie chose her father, and Teresa wanting to keep the siblings together also sent Kyle with him. In the end, some problems caused both the kids to return to their mother anyway. You may say this was an ancient incident so, let us check their more recent controversies.
Todd’s Fight with Son Kyle on his Drug Addiction
Todd’s son Kyle Chrisley got caught in a dangerous combination of being a drug addict while having bipolar disorder. We got to meet him in season 1 of ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ but his drug use did not allow him to return to the show. Instead, he kept struggling with sobriety and relapse, including a 2012 arrest for punching his sister Lindsie.
In 2014, he also went through a “crack binge,” after which he showed erratic behavior to his girlfriend, Alexus Whilby, who called law enforcement. As the police were taking him away, on the sight of his father, he screamed,
“I will kill you, Motherf***er”
However, Kyle, as of present, shares a good relationship with his father. He has a daughter of his own from his previous relationship with girlfriend, Angela Victoria Johnson by the name of Chloe Chrisley. His father was a significant factor in how he got his daughter’s custody with a past like his.
During his father’s tax evasion charges, Kyle had to be admitted to the hospital due to an “adverse reaction to medications,” and his father was right there beside him despite facing a major legal battle of his own, which tells us plenty about their current relationship.
Sexual Allegations by Daughter Lindsie
Like Kyle, his sister Lindise also became a significant part of ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’ She left the show in season 5 after a major controversy broke out between her and her father in 2017. She accused her father and her step-brother, Chase Chrisley, for extortion. She claimed that her father and step-brother possessed her sex tape and were using it against her to make her say some things.
This controversy broke out during Todd Chrisley’s trials for fraud and tax evasion, and people thought it was because Lindsie was the one who blew the whistle on the fact. On the other hand, her father’s reps defense was that it was a lie, and they were trying to keep Lindsie’s extramarital affairs with Bachelor Nation stars Robby Hayes and Josh Murray.
At the end of the day, like most of the family’s controversies, this too was more of a he-says-she says case. While Lindsie is still estranged from her father, Todd Chrisley, he still says he loves her. Likewise, Todd Chrisley was infected with coronavirus, which he opened up about after a few weeks in April 2020. Lindsie also defended her dad in the comments section, where people were saying negative things to him.
As you can see, Teresa Terry is the mother of Kyle and Lindsie and the ex-wife of Todd Chrisley. That is pretty much the only fame factor she has. So, as in this article, you will mostly find more info on her former husband or children than hers. We still hope you find this article somewhat helpful.
