Just a day after it was reported that Savannah Chrisley was dating Robert Shiver, the couple was seen out for the first time.
Chrisley, 26, was spotted on September 6 at the Los Angeles International Airport with Shiver, 38, before news they were dating surfaced.
It isn’t clear how Chrisley and Shiver met, or when exactly they started dating, though the new couple certainly seemed happy in their travels.
The new snaps come just hours after Chrisley appeared on The Vial Files podcast where she revealed that she previously went on a date with Armie Hammer.
Chrisley was seen at LAX wearing a plain white t-shirt with a gold necklace dangling from her neck.
She had a pair of black sunglasses perched on her blonde locks while accessorizing with huge diamond earrings and many gold bracelets.
Chrisley had a brown Louis Vuitton purse dangling from her left shoulder, while pushing her brown LV matching luggage set.
The reality star was making a phone call while walking to her vehicle after her getaway with Shiver.
Savannah completed her look with blue jeans and grey and white Nike Dunk sneakers for her look.
Her new beau was spotted wearing a black t-shirt, black baseball cap, blue jeans and blue and black Nike Dunk sneakers, with a brown backpack strapped to his back.
Chrisley revealed on Nick Vial’s Vial Files podcast that she once went on a date with Armie Hammer, long before all of his controversy.
‘He and I connected and went out to dinner one time, but that was the extent of it,’ she said. ‘Nobody knows that, by the way.’
When asked about who made the first move, the Chrisley Knows Best coyly stated: ‘I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe it was [me], maybe it wasn’t.’
Shiver was a former college football long snapper for Auburn University, who met his wife at his alma mater when she was a cheerleader.
He played as a long snapper from 2006 to 2009 for Auburn, and while he wasn’t drafted by an NFL team, he was signed as a free agent before the 2009 season.
However, he wasn’t signed by the team and released, as he pivoted to a career in insurance, working for Senior Life Insurance Company in Thomasville, Georgia.
Robert, the son of former Flowers Foods CEO Allen Shriver, married Lindsay in 2010 and they share three sons – Grayson, 11, Landon, 10 and Rhett, 4.
The couple were going through divorce proceedings and a nasty custody battle when the murder-for-hire plot was uncovered.
Lindsay had reportedly been hooking up with Terrance Bethel for quite some time, and when Robert learned of the affair, he started divorce proceedings and cut her off from their home and his family’s private jet.
Lindsay also filed a counter-claim that Robert was abusive during their marriage, when the plot was uncovered.
Police were investigating a break-in at Grabbers, a popular watering hole in Great Guana Cay where Bethel had worked.
Police asked Grabbers employees to turn over their phones to investigate the break-in, when they discovered messages between Lindsay, Bethel and prospective hitman Faron Newbold, discussing having Robert killed.
She reportedly tearfully confessed to sending photos of Robert to Newbold and instructing him to kill her husband.
At the time, Robert was visiting his family’s property in nearby Baker’s Bay before his wife was arrested.
A Superior Court judge set Lindsay’s bail at $100,000, which was paid and she was released, and while there were reports that Robert paid the bail, they have since been debunked.
Lindsay is expected to remain in the Bahamas while the case is ongoing, and will be forced to surrender her passport until the indictment in October.
Robert is currently pursuing sole custody of his three children while Lindsay awaits her arraignment in the Bahamas.
As for Savannah Chrisley, she is coming off a two-year engagement with Nic Kerdiles that ended in 2020.
She first entered the public eye with the reality series Chrisley Knows Best, as the oldest daughter of Todd and Julie Chrisley.
Her parents were indicted by the Georgia Department of Revenue in August 2019 on multiple tax evasion and bank fraud charges.
While they settled the Georgia case, they still faced federal tax evasion charges, with Todd and Julie both found guilty, with Todd sentenced to 12 years in federal prison and Julie sentenced to seven years.
After their incarceration, Savannah became the primary caregiver for her 16-year-old brother Grayson and 10-year-old niece Chloe, with Savannah admitting in a May episode of her Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley podcast that it has had her questioning wanting kids herself.
‘I’m in that anger part of grief right now. I’m just angry at everything. And also, after taking on the kids. I’m like, ‘Okay. Do I actually want kids? Do I? You know, seeing how much this whole thing has affected us?”‘ Savannah admitted.
Still, she clarified that she isn’t angry about having to care for her brother and niece after her parents were locked up.
‘I don’t want anyone to take what I said out of context at all. I frickin love these two kids more than life itself,’ she said.
‘They are my everything,” she said. “We have so much fun together. I try to have as much fun as possible,’ she added.
She will next be seen on the Fox reality series Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test, with the second season debuting September 25.
