When it comes to Savannah Chrisley dating professional athletes, her father, Todd Chrisley, has some reservation.
During an interview with “Access Hollywood Live” earlier in the year, Todd didn’t hold back when asked how he felt about his 20-year-old daughter being linked to some of the rising stars in the NBA.
“I think in the NBA, you know, they’re ho hounds. I mean, so you know, my daughter’s not gonna be on that list. They have two phones, you know, side chick, main chick. … You know, let’s call it what it is.”
However, after Savannah revealed she was dating newly drafted NBA star Luke Kennard, it didn’t take long for the “God-fearing” athlete to get Todd’s stamp of approval:
He told E!’s “Daily Pop” crew:
“[Savannah] has been a ‘Shady Sheila’ in her past. We don’t have to worry about that because Luke is a wonderful, fine young man whose integrity and morals are beyond reproach.
His family is just wonderful, good, God-fearing people.”
He continued in a separate interview, calling Kennard an “honorable young man”:
“We love him. He’s a good, decent, honest, honorable young man. He’s very strong and committed to his faith. His family are quality, good, decent people.”
In fact, Savannah had so much faith in Luke that it was the first time she wasn’t nervous introducing a boyfriend to her father.
“Honestly, I wasn’t [afraid] because, for the first time, he’s an awesome human being. There was no hesitation about it. It started off very pure and right. [Todd] was involved from the very beginning. That’s the way to do it.”
Unfortunately, it appears as though Savannah and Luke’s relationship is no longer pure.
In a statement given to E! News, the 20-year-old revealed she and Luke broke up after four months of dating, stating that she worried she wasn’t the only girl in his life:
“The last 4 months I’ve been dating Luke have been great but as a young woman of faith I made the decision that with where Luke and I both are in our careers, it was best to part as friends rather than deal with the pressures of wondering if you are the only one.
I was brought up to know my worth. I’m 20 now and so excited to live my life as beautifully as God intended. I will forever love the Kennard family.”
Around the same time Savannah released the statement, her father posted a cryptic tweet, acknowledging that a person “can’t find happiness by taking someone else’s away”:
What’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine, just because you take it from the person God gave it to, doesn’t mean he’s gonna allow you to keep it. Here today, gone tomorrow.
As a result of their breakup, Savannah removed all photos of Luke from her social media accounts.
Luke followed suit, as well.
