Chrisley Knows Best fans have watched Todd Chrisley's adorable granddaughter Chloe grow up right before their eyes on the show and on social media, but if you haven't been keeping up with the Chrisleys, you might not be familiar with the precious little girl. Luckily, we're going to get you up to speed on everything you need to know about the smiley kid.
Chloe is Todd's son's daughter.
Todd's troubled son Kyle Chrisley had a child with a woman named Angela Johnson in 2012. Todd revealed that “Kyle is bipolar and normally, people that are bipolar, they seek out a way to self-medicate, which is what Kyle has done since he’s been young,” he told E! News. “I want what’s best for him.” Kyle has been to rehab for his drug addiction in the past.
Todd has custody of Chloe.
The sweet little girl is under the care of Todd and his wife Julie, and they clearly love her very much, based on their adorable pics together on Instagram. However, in 2014 Kyle accused them of only using her for ratings. "My dad showed no interest in Chloe at all until the show and until it was pointed out that having a mixed race child and getting her and all that would be good for his demographic," he told Daily Mail. "He didn’t want to see her before then. He said he wanted nothing to do with her." Todd clapped back, saying “That is not true. That is probably the most hurtful thing in the article. I’m not going to focus on Kyle’s stories because that’s my son and I love him.”
Chloe's mom was arrested in 2016.
While Kyle has been battling his demons, Chloe's mother Angela has been getting into legal trouble. In 2016, she was caught claiming Chloe as a dependent to defraud medicaid and food stamps, despite the fact that Todd has full legal custody of the little girl, according to Real Mr. Housewife.
Chloe is four years old.
The youngest Chrisley was born on Nov. 10, 2012, so she's four years old. Her birthday was even celebrated on one of the episodes of the show.
She's no longer on Chrisley Knows Best.
Chloe and Kylie were both featured on the first season of Chrisley Knows Best, but her dad quit the show before season two, and she never appeared in it again after the family moved to Nashville. Todd explained to Real Mr. Housewife that it was because Kyle wanted to be paid for her appearing, and “there was no other choice than to pull her from the show. At the end of the day, we had to do what was best for Chloe. We did not want to drag her through all this and there was no way that we were going to pay Kyle a penny. Listen, we would love to have Chloe back on the show. Chloe absolutely knows that she is no longer a part of the TV show because she asked me, ‘Papa, why am I not on the show anymore?’"
