Another reality television couple is headed for splitsville. Chrisley Knows Best star Lindsie Chrisley has filed for divorce from husband William Campbell after four years of marriage.
Chrisley and Campbell started dating in 2009. They got married after three years of dating in 2012, just two years before the 2014 premiere of her family’s reality television series.
“He was my first love. We got together when we were 19-years-old, and over time we grew separately in different directions instead of together,” Chrisley told People magazine. “I feel like I’ve become more independent, I’ve come more into myself, I’m more confident with myself and I just don’t feel that relationship gives me what I need anymore. I’ve outgrown the relationship.”
Chirsley, who has a 3-year-old son with Campbell, also revealed to the magazine that the couple briefly separated in 2014.
“We had a little time apart, then we got back together in the hopes that we could make it work for our child,” Chrisley said. “But we realized that two people that are not happy with one another and trying to make it work just for the child and not for themselves personally — that’s not in the best interest of the child, or either of us.”
However, Chrisley doesn’t regret the couple’s break two years ago, saying, “I take nothing negative from that experience because that’s where I was at the time. I feel like I had been struggling with this decision for a long time, and I didn’t want to make an immature decision on the spur of the moment.”
Todd Chrisley, Lindsie’s father, and Campbell never really got along. He always disapproved of the pair’s decision to elope without his knowledge and was shown butting heads with his son-in-law on the show.
However, her father had nothing but positive things to say about Campbell following the divorce announcement.
“[Will] has been a very good provider and there has been no kind of anything going on in their marriage that I would tolerate, that Lindsie would tolerate or that Will has done that anyone could twist,” Todd told People. “He is a decent young man, and our family will always stand with him for the betterment of our grandchild.”
