Savannah Chrisley dating former college football star Robert Shriver, whose wife tried to have him killed

Savannah Chrisley revealed she is dating Robert Shriver — the former college football star who survived an alleged murder-for-hire plot by his wife, Lindsay Shriver.

“This guy that I’m talking to, his wife just tried to kill him. It’s fine,” the former “Chrisley Knows Best” star said on the “Viall Files” podcast Thursday before confirming Robert’s identity.

“It was a thing. He’s a normal person, and I love it.”

Savannah — whose parents, Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley, are serving prison time for bank fraud and tax evasion — joked that she is not afraid of dating someone who was at the center of an attempted murder.

“Dude, I have the government coming after me. I’m good,” she quipped, adding that her opinion on the case is that a person is “innocent until proven guilty.”

Lindsay, who shares three children with the former Auburn player, was busted in the Bahamas on July 26 for her alleged contract killing attempt when police stumbled on her plot while investigating another case.

“It was a thing,” she shared on “The Viall Files.” “He’s a normal person and I love it.”

Two men, Terrance Bethel — identified as Lindsay’s extramarital lover — and Faron Newbold were also arrested over the alleged hit scheme.

Local police unearthed text messages that detailed the plot while they searched the phone of a suspected burglar at a bar in the Bahamas in early August.

It’s unclear to whom the phone belonged.

Robert, 38, exclusively told The Post days later he hadn’t shared the news of his estranged wife’s arrest with their kids.

“My kids don’t know the whole thing yet. I’m going to try to tell them in the next day or so,” he said. “They’re young.”

Following her release from jail on $100,000 cash bail and an agreement to wear an ankle monitor, Lindsay told The Post it’s been “really tough.”

“I really can’t say too much right now,” she said, noting that she had been advised to remain mum by her attorneys as the case progresses.

“It’s been hard. But I can’t speak about it.”

Lindsay was also ordered to remain in Nassau as she awaits an October court date and is prohibited from contacting her estranged husband or coming within 100 feet of him.

The athlete had filed for divorce from the former pageant queen on April 5 after allegedly uncovering “adulterous conduct.” He requested sole custody of their kids.

The day after Robert filed for divorce, Lindsay submitted her response, in which she accused him of domestic violence, cutting her off from his money and “physical and mental cruel treatment.”

For her part, Savannah, 26, and her ex-fiancé Nic Kerdiles called off their engagement in 2020.
