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, following rumors that the pair were romantically involved.
“He’s just an awesome person,” Chrisley, 25, said, before revealing the pair did give dating a shot. “The waters were definitely tested. You got to date to know where you got to land.”
Chrisley and Stell first met when she starred in his “Prayed For You” music video back in 2018, alongside her ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles, 28.
The reality star went on to clarify that she was still “very engaged” to Kerdiles at the time, even though that relationship “ended pretty quickly.”
Although Chrisley gained a friend 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 to hear the song anymore,” the “Growing Up Chrisley” star continued. “You can’t take people you’re in a relationship with to your favorite restaurants, your favorite vacation spots because then you might break up and it ruins it.”
Although the split has been hard for Chrisley, the reality star has stood by the athlete’s side amidst his public mental health struggles.
In February, Kerdiles suffered a psychotic breakdown which caused him to hold a gun against his head and threatened his own life. Chrisley — along with a friend and her dad, Todd Chrisley — was there to talk him out of it, according to the 911 call obtained by TMZ at the time.
The former couple, along with Todd, went on to address the scary situation on Instagram, with the athlete telling their fans he was on a mixture of medications to treat COVID-19 and other health matters along with “a lot of alcohol.” The toxic combination caused him to blackout during the ordeal.
“I don’t know where I was at in my mental state, but between the depression, anxiety, the COVID effects, the medication, the alcohol, I did something that I never thought I would ever do,” he said.
The family patriarch concluded the message by saying, “Mental illness should not be made fun of, should not be taken lightly, and we should do everything in our power to lift those who are struggling up, not pay them to tear someone down.”
