Not all of the Chrisley kids have it good. For the longest time, Todd’s eldest son Kyle Chrisley has been estranged from the Chrisley household. From a young age, Kyle has been the victim of stardom. Down the years, Kyle began using drugs and suffered from severe problems with his mental health. It reached a point where Kyle was stripped of his custody rights and was not allowed to see his own daughter. But following his marriage to Alexus Whilby, Kyle has decided to come clean and seems to be keeping away from drugs. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Kyle Chrisley.
Kyle Chrisley was born on the 29th of August 1991 to Todd Chrisley and his ex-wife Teresa Terry. Born and raised in South Carolina USA, Kyle is the first-born child of Todd Chrisley. His parents met in high school and got married in the late 1980’s. Little is known about Kyle’s early life and there are little to no details on his persona life. As far as academia goes, Kyle graduated from Saint Francis High School. Following his parents’ divorce, Kyle decided to stay with his mother. From a young age, Kyle started doing drugs and the habit followed him well into adulthood.
Akin to his personal life, there is very little information about Kyle’s professional life. Todd rose to fame after making appearances in the family TV series, Chrisley knows best. However, Kyle worked only in the first season of the show and left the series in 2014. After his marriage to Alexus, Kyle and Alexus formed a music duo, Lexy & Kyle Chrisley. The pair released a few singles including Shame on You, Outta Here, and Country Baby. None of the pair’s songs were well received and the musical duo closed shop.
Problems with drugs:
For the longest time, Kyle Chrisley has struggled with drugs and substance abuse. He found his way into drugs at a young age and continued well into adulthood. Back in the early 2010’s, Kyle tied the knot with Angel Victoria Johnson. However, the relationship did not last long, owing to Kyle’s abusive behavior and drug problem. While the pair divorced soon after, they had a daughter, Chloe Chrisley. It is believed that both Kyle and Angle had a drug problem, which is why when Chloe was six-months-old, the custody was handed to Todd Chrisley. In 2013, Kyle applied for visiting rights to see his daughter but lost the legal battle.
Suicide and coming clean:
Following his marriage to Alexus Whilby, Kyle decided to come clean. However, he failed to do so, and in May of 2019, Kyle was arrested in Oklahoma for possessing methamphetamine. While the charges were dropped one month later, Kyle was issued a warrant by a judge in Georgia for allegedly threatening his wife.
However, in September of 2019, Kyle attempted suicide and was rushed to the hospital. Following the failed attempt, Todd took to media to say that he would not give up on his son and would try to make rehab work. Kyle revealed that he had been using certain medications that induced suicidal thoughts.
“I take medication and I had a bad side effect to it and I tried to take my own life. With the meds, I got all kinds of crazy thinking going on.”
Supporting his son, Todd took to media to say that Kyle was off the medication which induced such thoughts.
“I think some of the medications they put you on—that you had not been on—one of the side effects is suicidal tendencies and we’re now off of that.”
Finally he came up clean after spending four years in the rehab center.
