Who Owns Custody Of Chloe Chrisley Now After Todd’s Sentencing – Plus Where Are Her Real Parents?

Where are Chloe Chrisley’s real parents right now? Chloe Chrisley’s custody could be remanded to this Chrisley family member.

Devout viewers of Chrisley Knows Best are likely familiar with Todd and Julie Chrisley’s 9-year-old granddaughter, Chloe Chrisley. The youngster has been a fixture on the family’s television show for some years now, but everything is changing now that her grandparents are going to be incarcerated.

That’s right: Todd and Julie are headed to some serious time behind bars, with Todd facing 12 years and Julie facing seven years. That begs the question: Who will have custody of Chloe now that her famous relatives are prisoners? Keep reading to find out.

So, who is Chloe Chrisley? Her custody is in the balance.

There is no denying that Chloe — who goes by the nickname Coco and is a pretty impressive equestrian — steals the spotlight of every episode she’s in of the USA reality series, but it can be hard to keep up with the Chrisley family, especially when it comes to the custody drama surrounding their granddaughter. Now, that issue is exacerbated even more with Todd and Julie being sentenced to prison.

Chloe is the daughter of Todd Chrisley’s son, Kyle, and Kyle’s ex, Angela Johnson. The couple welcomed the baby girl in 2012 — but Kyle struggled for years with drug addiction. “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,” Todd told E! News in 2014.

His ex-girlfriend also accused Kyle of abuse during her pregnancy. “He grabbed me and choked me when I was pregnant,” she told Life & Style at the time. “There was a time when he got mad at me and came at me with a knife while I was holding Chloe. He was talking about stabbing me, then threw a bottle of pills and hit me and Chloe right in the face with them.”

Why was Todd given custody of his granddaughter, Chloe?  

Kyle was arrested and charged with assault one year after his daughter’s birth — giving shared custody to Todd and her mother, Angela. However, in 2016, Angela was arrested for allegedly claiming Chloe as a dependent to defraud Medicaid and food stamps, which granted Todd full custody of his granddaughter.

On multiple occasions, Kyle has accused his family of using Chloe to boost the ratings on their TV show. “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 the Daily Mail. “He didn’t want to see her before then. He said he wanted nothing to do with her.”

This is something Todd has denied on multiple occasions. He told Us Weekly, “Chloe is our family, and we are glad that the world gets to see such a beautiful child grow, explore and come into herself so brilliantly through love and respect.”

Now that Todd and Julie are being incarcerated, who gets custody of Chloe?

With the life-altering decision being handed down to Todd and Julie for tax evasion, the new question in the Chrisley world is who will be given custody of Chloe now. Thankfully, Savannah Chrisley cleared it all up on YouTube right after the judge handed down her parents’ verdicts.

Indeed, the youngster’s custody may very well be remanded to Savannah. Savannah shared with fans that she might end up becoming the parental figure in both Chloe and Grayson Chrisley’s lives. Granted, Grayson is much older than Chloe, but only time will tell if the law decides that to be the proper solution.

However, Angela spoke with TMZ in December 2022, hinting that Savannah taking over custody of Chloe may not be cut and dry. She told the publication: “As of right now, I haven’t filed any legal papers but I am in the process of getting some legal papers filed so I can go back to court and get Chloe back home.”

Except, Todd and Julie not only have custody of Chloe, they legally adopted her.

“I handled the formal adoption of Chloe by Todd and Julie Chrisley,” Jessica Doyle, a family law attorney, told People. “Angela Johnson’s parental rights were terminated when she voluntarily surrendered her parental rights to Todd and Julie Chrisley on March 24, 2017. She has had no contact with the minor child since 2015.”

It looks like Chrisley Knows Best fans will have to wait and see what happens for sure once Todd and Julie start serving their time.

Where are Chloe’s mother and father today? 

Kyle was arrested in May 2019 and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine after police discovered a pouch of meth hidden in his car. There was also an outstanding open warrant for Kyle in Dekalb County, Ga., after he allegedly made death threats against his estranged wife, Alexus Chrisley.

Before his arrest, Kyle revealed he has no relationship with his family. “I do not talk to my family but I wish them nothing but the best,” he told Radar Online. “I have moved on with my life. I am just going to be the best father and husband that I can be.”

However, Kyle and his family reconciled that summer when the Chrisleys’ tax indictment issues first came to light.

Despite their struggles, the family unit has kept it together and remained strong. Todd shared a picture of his sons on Instagram back in 2020 with the caption, “Love these two with all my heart, hope you have a successful day fishing, take care of each other and see you this evening @chasechrisley @kyle.chrisley.”

As for Angela, Chloe’s mother has been keeping a very low profile on social media. She last shared a photo with her daughter in 2016 — but her Twitter bio reveals how she feels about Chloe. “I have a beautiful baby girl who I will do anything for and love dearly,” it reads.
