Savannah Chrisley and Matt Stell are “better” off “as friends”.
During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “The Highway,” the reality TV star was asked about her relationship with the country music star, 38, after rumors the couple were in a romantic relationship.
“He’s just an amazing person,” said Chrisley, 25, before revealing the couple gave them a chance to date. “The waters have certainly been tested. You have to have a date to know where to land.”
Chrisley and Stell first met when she starred in his 2018 music video “Prayed For You” alongside ex-fiancée Nic Kerdiles, 28.
The reality star further clarified that she was still “very engaged” to Kerdiles at the time, although that relationship “ended quite quickly.”
Chrisley and Kerdiles called it quits in 2020 after they postponed their wedding because their relationship was going “too fast”.
Although Chrisley got a boyfriend in Stell from the music video, she admitted it still reminds her of her painful relationship with the hockey player.
“I don’t even like hearing the song anymore,” continued the “Growing Up Chrisley” star. “You can’t take people you’re in a relationship with to your favorite restaurants, your favorite vacation spots, because then you could break up and ruin it.”
Though the split was difficult for Chrisley, the reality star stood by the athlete’s side amid his mental health issues.
In February, Kerdiles suffered a psychotic breakdown that left him holding a gun to his head and threatening his own life. Chrisley — along with a friend and her father, Todd Chrisley — were there to talk him out, according to the 911 call TMZ got at the time.
The former couple, along with Todd, continued the scary situation on Instagram, with the athlete telling their fans that he was taking a mixture of drugs to treat COVID-19 and other health issues, along with “a lot of alcohol”. The toxic combination caused him to black out during the ordeal.
The 36-year-old Aquaman actress smiled as she …
“I don’t know where I was in my mental state, but between the depression, anxiety, the COVID effects, the medication, the alcohol, I did something I never thought I would do,” he said.
The patriarch of the family concluded the message by saying: “Mental illness is not to be laughed at, not to be thought lightly, and we must do everything in our power to lift those who are struggling, not pay to take someone down.”
