Todd Chrisley’s Siblings: Meet His Brothers Randy and Derrick Who Died Young

Todd Chrisley originally had two brothers, Randy and Derrick, but Derrick unfortunately died in October 1971 at just 4 months old.

With his reality show Chrisley Knows Best giving fans and the media alike an insight into his personal life and his family members, one would think Todd Chrisley, along with the rest of his family, was pretty much an open book; however, this does not seem to be the case.

The media, along with the rest of the world, were shocked and intrigued to learn that Todd, who was previously thought to be the only child of Gene Raymond and Faye Chrisley, is the first of three children. Here is all we know about the other Chrisley siblings, Randy and Derrick Chrisley.

Todd Chrisley Has Two Brothers; One Living Sibling

Randy Chrisley Was Born 16 Months After Todd

  • Born: 28th of August 1970
  • Age: 53 years old
  • Birthplace: Westminster, South Carolina

The world first learned of Randy Chrisley from an Instagram post shared by real estate mogul Todd Chrisley on the 3rd of January 2020. The post showed a picture of a young Todd and Randy opening presents under a Christmas tree. The post serves as a homage to their mother, Faye, who, more or less, single-handedly raised them.

In the post caption (above), Todd thanked his mother for her sacrifices in raising him and his brother, revealing that she worked 60 hours a week in a textile mill to “make sure we had everything we wanted and needed.” The reality TV star added that he had just found the photo where he wore a red top sitting just across his brother as they opened Christmas gifts from Santa. Todd revealed that his brother received drums while he got a record player.

This post was followed by yet another picture from their childhood, posted the next day. While it is clear to see how close the Todd Chrisley clan is through the show, with his posts on Instagram since his introduction of Randy to the media, it is obvious that this closeness extends to his siblings as well.

According to reports, Randy was born on the 28th of August 1970, a year after his brother Todd. Randy was born and raised in Westminster, South Carolina, like his brother Todd. He attended West Oak high school from 1984 till his graduation in 1988, and while there is no record of where he went to college or whether or not he even went to college.

What Does Todd Chrisley’s Brother, Randy, Do For a Living?

Since 2020 when Todd Chrisley revealed that he had a living brother, many fans of the reality star and his family have been burning with questions about the new Chrisley; top among those questions is Randy’s occupation.

It is common knowledge that he went into the real estate business like his brother. However, he was not as successful as Todd in that venture. From what has been gathered, Randy currently works with RS services and has been with them since August 2001. He has a net worth of about $100,000.

Randy Met the Love of His Life Pamela In 2010

Randy met the love of his life Pamela, in 2010, and the two dated for two years before they decided to tie the knot in 2012. In 2014, Randy was diagnosed with stage four cancer, and shortly after, he began making headlines. The media, along with the rest of the world, were convinced that Randy Chrisley would surely die due to the severity of the cancer. However, he managed to pull through, all thanks to chemotherapy and the support from his wife and the rest of his family.

Randy and Pamela’s Marriage Came to an End in 2016

In the years they were married, all seemed rosy between the two. However, it was not until they filed for divorce in 2016 that the media knew otherwise. The couple had a rather public and messy split amidst rumors of adultery on Randy’s part. Pamela took to Facebook, accusing Randy of cheating and hinting at domestic abuse. Todd Chrisley and the rest of the family stood firmly behind him and provided support during all this.

The divorce proceedings took a rather dark turn when People Magazine reported in March 2016 that Pamela Chrisley had been arrested and charged with second-degree harassment after allegedly attempting to blackmail and extort the Chrisley family out of a rather large sum of money. This issue shone a light on the Chrisley family, hinting that they were not perfect. Pamela was said to have threatened to sell a story on the family, specifically Todd, to the National Enquirer unless he paid her hush money.

She was later released after posting a $1,000 bail money. She was also ordered not to make any contact of any kind with any member of the Chrisley family for any reason whatsoever, whether directly or not, and no electronic contacts of any kind.
Todd took to Instagram following the events, paring a mugshot of Pamela, with a portion of the caption reading;

Our family has endured this harassment for many months and had to stay quiet to let law enforcement from two states do their job. Today is the first day of many to come and additional charges, but our family will persevere and move forward together. We are at peace now that we know who has been behind this tragic situation and ask for your prayers and support for healing at this time.

While the two had no children during their marriage, Randy did have a child from a previous relationship. The names and identities of the child and his mother have yet to be revealed.

Shortly After His Divorce, Todd Chrisley’s Brother Randy was Arrested for Shoplifting

It seemed the tabloids were not through with the Chrisley family in 2016, and it was reported that Randy was arrested for shoplifting in Westminster, South Carolina. According to reports, Randy Chrisley was said to have stuffed some bags of candy valued at around $22, the police were called, and upon inquiry, he admitted to having put the candy in his pants, intending to leave the store without paying.

Randy Chrisley was said to have been there with his eleven-year-old son when all this transpired. The bad press caused the media to wonder if all was well with this Chrisley brother. Randy has long been out of jail since the experience and chooses to keep away from the spotlight, maintaining a rather private life ever since.

Derrick Chrisley was the Youngest of Todd Chrisley Brothers

  • Born: 29th of June 1971
  • Died: October 1971
  • Age at Death: 4 months

Derrick Chrisley is the last and youngest of the Chrisley brothers. He was born on the 29th of June 1971, just a little over a year after his brother Randy was born. Sadly, Derrick passed away in October 1971, four months after he was born. Like with the case of the Chrisley patriarch, Gene Raymond, his cause of death was never disclosed. Derrick was just two years younger than Todd and would have been 50 years of age as of 2021. The Chrisley clan is yet to reveal how they dealt with the grief of his passing, but we can imagine that it was quite a harrowing experience.
