Chrisley Knows Best fans know that Todd’s formerly estranged son, Kyle Chrisley, rarely posts on social media. In fact, after the whirlwind of controversy in his past, Kyle tends to stay out of the spotlight altogether. Yesterday, show fans did a doubletake when a rare post from Kyle popped up in their feed. What made the eldest Chrisley son break his silence?

Read on to get the details about this very special post.

Kyle Chrisley – The Family Secret?

Kyle Chrisley certainly isn’t invisible to fans of the family — but he is definitely the family member that people have the most questions about. Now 30, Kyle has been in and out of the spotlight for years, dealing with his own, non-show-related issues. While he isn’t in the show very often now, he was a regular staple in the show’s initial season. The show’s producers focused heavily on Todd’s relationship with Kyle.

In the beginning, the show followed the family during a time when Kyle was struggling with substance abuse/addiction. Then 23, Kyle was trying to get his life straightened out so he could get sober for his infant daughter, Chloe.

Unfortunately, after a saddening downward spiral, an attempted suicide, a relapse, and Chloe’s mother eventually being arrested for alleged Medicaid fraud, things were not looking up for Kyle. Thankfully, Todd ended up being awarded full custody of Kyle’s daughter. Todd and Julie have raised Chloe like their own. She has become an integral part of the Chrisley clan and has flourished and grown into a beautiful young lady.

After several years of battling addiction, Kyle finally got sober in 2019 and made amends with his father, officially reuniting with his family.  While the millennial celeb was getting treatment for his bipolar disorder, a bad reaction to a behavioral med caused him to suffer from suicidal thoughts. Eventually, that struggle led to Kyle trying to take his own life. Thankfully, the attempt was not a success.

Just after the incident, Todd posted on Instagram about how overjoyed he was that God came through and saved his son. He accompanied the caption with a photo of Kyle in a hospital bed, smiling, surrounded by the smiling faces of the entire Chrisley family. That was a huge turning point for the family whose relations with Kyle have only gotten better since.

Since getting sober, Kyle has been rebuilding his relationship with his daughter. He has found a new love in his life and married his wife, Ashleigh Nelson, in March of this year. Overall, despite all of the challenges that he has had to face over the last few years, the young Chrisley appears healthy and happy.

Kyle Chrisley Shares Rare Post On Social Media

While deep in the throes of his addiction, Todd getting sole custody didn’t make Kyle happy in the least. He told anyone who would listen that Todd was pulling a stunt to improve his ratings. According to The Daily Mail, Kyle said, “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.”

Now, seven years later, Kyle seems to have really changed his tune when it comes to his father’s motives. And, it seems Kyle is taking the initiative to earn himself a place inside his daughter’s heart.

You are so funny you make me laugh every time you talk. You are such a beautiful little girl and I am so thankful for every minute spent with you. Happy Birthday, Chloe, I love you so much!”
