Todd Chrisley Has A Theory On Why His Daughter Savannah’s Engagement Ended

Todd Chrisley has a working theory regarding his daughter Savannah Chrisley‘s relationship with ex-fiancé Nic Kerdiles and why they split up.

While co-hosting the Chrisley Confessions podcast this past Wednesday, Todd spoke about his adoration for Kerdiles — despite the fact that the former athlete is no longer dating Savannah.

“We love Nic, and I pray for him every day and I will always love him,” Todd, 53, began. “Nic will always mean the world to my family, but they have gone their separate ways. And it appears for now that that’s where they’re going to stay.”

Recalling a recent conversation he had with Savannah over the split, Todd shared, “I said, ‘But let’s make sure that you collect your ownership in how this ended this way.'”

“I said, ‘Y’all met on social media. You had a blue checkmark, he had a blue checkmark. He was an athlete, you’re on television,'” Todd recounted.

“Y’all put all your faith in that blue check mark because that meant both of you were verified, which meant there was no falsity going on. There was no one impersonating you. This was a verified account.”

“And I said, ‘Had you put as much faith in the word [of the Bible] and in God as you did that blue checkmark,’ I said, ‘Things may have ended differently,'” he continued.

And since Kerdiles is famous, Todd said he thought Savannah would believe he would be on “her level” and understand what she deals with as a television personality. After asking her if his theory was “correct,” the Chrisley family patriarch recalled his daughter allegedly agreeing with him at the time.

“I said, ‘When y’all two verified that y’all were legitimate on social media, where was the verification that you were both children of God and that you were supposed to be together? Where’s that verification?'” he continued. “I said, ‘You don’t have it.’ So what starts uneven will end uneven. What starts out as cracked will end up shattered. And I said, ‘If it starts out messy, it’ll end with messy.'”

Savannah, 25, and Kerdiles, 28, announced their break up in September 2020. The breakup news came nearly two years after the former ice hockey player popped the question in April 2019 after over a year of dating.

“Nic and I have decided to call it quits,” Savannah previously wrote on Instagram at the time. “There’s no hatred between the two of us…and in all honesty…that makes saying goodbye even harder. We have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for one another but it’s time for us to move forward individually.”
