As Todd And Julie Chrisley Head To Prison, It Looks Like There’s A Custody Battle Brewing

It’s been a few weeks since Todd and Julie Chrisley were sentenced to years in prison months after being found guilty of bank fraud, tax evasion and other crimes. Since then, the two reality TV stars have been aiming to get their (legal and domestic) affairs in order. One of the matters that they’re currently looking to get situated is the guardianship of the two younger kids that were in their care: 16-year-old son Grayson and 10-year-old granddaughter/adopted daughter Chloe. Right now, the two are set to be placed in the care of Savannah Chrisley, but it looks like a custody battle involving Chloe is now brewing for the Chrisleys ahead of their prison stints.

Angela Johnson, the mother of Chloe Chrisley, is reportedly looking to get full custody of her daughter. TMZ reports that Johnson has been assembling a legal team for at least a few years now in an attempt to get her child back. However, it’s noted that the process has allegedly been a bit of an uphill battle for her, which is partially because of jurisdictional issues. At present, Johnson is a South Carolina resident, while Chloe resides in Tennessee. The news outlet obtained footage that shows Johnson making a tearful plea to be reunited with her daughter on a full-time basis: 

I want [Chloe] home, she deserves to be home. … I’ve held back for so long, try to patiently [get her back], and I don’t think it’s right for them to just pretend that I don’t exist and just say, ‘Oh, we’re just going to let Savannah get her.’ It don’t make sense.
