Entertainment TV Todd Chrisley Is Not Surprised Daughter Savannah & NBA Player Luke Kennard Broke Up Savannah Chrisley split from Luke Kennard in August 2017 after four months of dating By Karen Mizoguchi Published on May 8, 2018 04:51 PM Share Tweet Pin Email When it comes to his children’s dating life, Todd Chrisley is very involved. The Chrisley Knows Best patriarch approves of daughter Savannah‘s current relationship with pro hockey player Nic Kerdiles – and she’s thrilled. “I couldn’t ask it to be any better. When I’m gone, I don’t have any worries about what he’s doing, who he’s with, and that’s a good thing,” Savannah, 20, told PEOPLE Now on Tuesday about her boyfriend, adding that she’s in “a healthy relationship.” Though Todd likes her current boyfriend, the reality star also said he was fond of her ex, NBA player Luke Kennard. “I liked the last one. So, you know,” Todd said, much to his daughter’s irritation. “The ex is a young guy, NBA, made a lot of money, and he’s doing exactly what NBA players do. It’s absolutely no excuse,” Todd continued, adding that he was not surprised by their breakup in August 2017. “It was not shocking to me. I mean, hell, when you crawl into bed with a snake, don’t bitch when it bites.” “It was shocking, but at the end of the day, we just don’t give it any life anymore. When I say I’m going to date a man, not a boy, we leave the boys in the background,” Savannah said about her ex, whom she dated for four months. Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE?

It needs to be someone you’ve been seeing for a minute.” Savannah added, “My thing is that’s going to be the first thing I’m going to do, is bring him to meet my parents, because if you don’t get along, at least you know right off the bat this is not going to work.” Season 6 of Chrisley Knows Best premieres on Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
