Derrick Chrisley died before he could live and make a name for himself. Despite his very early passing, Derrick has been in the public eye because of his popular last name. The Chrisley name was made popular by his older brother Todd Chrisley’s successful career in the television industry and real estate business.
According to reports, Derrick Chrisley was born on June 29, 1971, in Westminster, South Carolina. He was the son of U.S Army veteran Gene Raymond Chrisley and Faye Chrisley, a Westminster High School graduate. His father received a bronze star during the Korean War, and he died at Emory University Hospital on July 11, 2012.
It is alleged that Derrick Chrisley died in October of 1971, a few months after his birth. There are no details regarding the cause of his death.
Derrick Chrisley has two brothers Todd Chrisley and Randy Chrisley. Once, in 2020, Todd Chrisley posted a childhood picture of himself and Randy, disclosing his mother’s struggle and effort to raise and take care of her kids. In the caption, he wrote, “God bless my mama, she worked 60 hours a week in a textile mill to make sure we had everything we wanted and needed. I found this photo (me in red), and Santa brought me a record player and my brother drums, it’s the little things that make me smile now as I get older… I love you, mama.”
Derrick’s Brother Todd Chrisley
Todd Chrisley is a hardworking entrepreneur and self-made millionaire who was born in Georgia, on April 6, 1969. He’s been married for almost 20 years to Julie, and they are blessed with five children and one granddaughter. He is known as the patriarch of the family, and he also stars on a couple of shows like the hit reality show Chrisley Knows Best. He has five children; Kyle Chrisley, Savannah Chrisley, Chrisley Lindsie, Chrisley Chase, and Chrisley Grayson.
Todd first got married in the late 1980s to Teresa Terry. The couple had their first child, a daughter Lindsie Chrisley on September 17, 1989, in South Carolina. Less than two years after the birth of Lindsie, Terry gave birth to their son Kyle. However, their marriage soon fell apart, and they were divorced by 1997.
Todd is also the owner of Chrisley Asset Management. However, court papers indicate that the company has been in danger for several years. The real estate mogul filed for financial protection in 2012, declaring to have 4.2 million dollars in assets and 50 million worth of obligation. Todd Chrisley has had financial challenges for several years. Despite this, the real estate mogul and fashion icon keeps up his lavish lifestyle. He still owns a 30,000 square foot house and is alleged to be spending over $300 thousand on his clothes. He is involved in a $45 million case, including a land domain that wasn’t successful.
Todd and his wife Julie were arrested in Atlanta in August 2019 on charges of tax evasion, wire fraud, bank fraud, and conspiracy between 2007 and 2012.
Derrick’s Brother Randy Chrisley
Randy Chrisley was born in Westminster. He schooled at West-Oak High School in 1984. After school, he got involved in the real estate business but later quit. Randy began working at R.S. service in August 2001 and has been a part of it ever since.
Before the pair got married in August 2012, Randy dated his now estranged wife, Pamela, for a short time. Randy got the sad diagnosis of stage four cancer in 2014, and he was admitted to the hospital. Many felt that Randy Chrisley would not survive it, considering the severity of his health problems. With help of family members including his brother Todd, however, and long chemotherapy, Randy soon made a quick recovery and now lives a healthy life.
In 2016, after his wife raised allegations of infidelity, Randy’s marriage faced some obstacles. Todd Chrisley was swift to defend his brother, saying that Pamela was, in truth, a gold digger extorting the Chrisley family. Pamela was arrested after the divorce was settled on charges of attempting to extort Randy. Authorities revealed to E.T. That she had been arrested on 4 March and was charged with 2nd-degree harassment. Pamela was later released on a $1,000 bond the same day. Pamela threatened to “sell a story to the National Enquirer that would hurt the Chrisley name unless hush money was deposited into her bank account.” according to incident reports published by Fox Carolina.
After posting Pamela’s mugshot on his Instagram page on March 5, 2016, Todd Chrisley made her arrest known to the press, with the caption:
“Pamela has been involved in a scheme with other individuals in G.A. and S.C. to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from our family because my brother filed for divorce from her. Our family has endured this harassment for many months and had to stay quiet to let law enforcement from two states do their job.”
Chrisley Knows Best
Chrisley Knows Best is a family reality T.V. series that follows the lives of the real estate giant Todd Chrisley and his family. It started to air on March 11, 2014, on USA Network. So far, the series has had over seven seasons. Apart from Todd, other recurring cast members include his wife Julie and his children Lindsie, Chase, Savannah, and Grayson. Although Randy has appeared on the show, he is not listed as a cast member. Many have said that despite the name of the show, it focuses more on Todd Chrisley’s immediate family rather than the entire Chrisley clan.
Todd and Randy Chrisley have both had careers in real estate, but Todd has been more successful. His success in real estate and television is the reason why the Chrisley name is known.
Derrick died before he could earn any money for himself. Although there is no specific information as to his earnings, Randy Chrisley’s fortune is estimated to be over $1 million. Meanwhile, his brother Todd Chrisley is said to have a wealth of about negative $5 million since he is facing bankruptcy.
