The Chrisley Knows Best star, 51, put a troll on blast by sharing a screengrab of a salty direct message Savannah, 23, received on Instagram, claiming she had “self-esteem issues” and wasn’t owning up her relationship status with Nic, 26.
The social media user alleged the pair’s romance went sour because Savannah was “telling [her] man how to dress” and enhancing her appearance with Botox. In the series of messages, the hater even called her “ugly.”
Refusing to sit by idly amid the backlash, Todd passionately defended Savannah in his response. “You have some nerve to come at my daughter but after reviewing your profile, I see where the jealousy comes from … If jabbing her about Botox is the best you got, then you are weak. I get that you don’t have my DNA, but that’s your mama’s fault for not meeting me before she met your dad,” he began.
The TV personality went on to slam speculation there was trouble in paradise with Savannah and Nic, adding, “He’s still in the same spot he’s always been, right beside @savannahchrisley and our family, but nice try you thirsty trick.”
Todd took a stand against the critic shortly after the blonde beauty revealed she and Nic gave the decision to hold off their nuptials a lot of thought. The couple started dating in 2017 and got engaged in April 2019.
“I mean we’ve gone back to dating,” Savannah told Us Weekly in July while promoting season 8 of her family’s reality show. “So that’s kind of where we’re at now. [We’re] just taking some time to figure out ourselves.”
Her interview came one month after she first announced their plans to delay their wedding. “We made [the decision] together,” Savannah said while appearing on the June 18 episode of Todd’s “Chrisley Confessions” podcast. “We both realized that things moved way too fast and we needed to go back to dating.”
“I think right now it’s a lot of focusing on us individually, because I’m a firm believer that if you’re not good to yourself you can’t be good for anyone else,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of challenging conversations and we love it because it forces us to know better and do better and there’s just a lot of learning going on.”
