Lindsie Chrisley has refrained from contacting her sister Savannah Chrisley in the aftermath of the passing of her former fiance, Nic Kerdiles. The host of The Southern Tea podcast, aged 34, elucidated her decision during the latest episode of her podcast on Wednesday.
Lindsie expressed, In summary, I have not endeavored to initiate communication with Savannah. I am aware that she is understandably distressed and mourning, and I did not wish to exacerbate the situation any further.
The Deliberate Choice To Pay Tribute
Lindsie had previously addressed criticism for not publicly honouring her younger sister's deceased ex-fiancé during an episode of PodcastOne's Coffee Convos on September 28, after Savannah's confirmation on The Viall Files that the two siblings no longer maintain communication.
Lindsay explained formally, stating, In light of the discussions and statements made on Viall Files and my subsequent response on Coffee Convos, I made the conscious decision to honour her expressed wishes during her appearance on Nick Viall's podcast. She made it clear that she did not want any involvement in each other's personal lives.
Sustained Correspondence Was Upheld
Hence, I concluded it to be most prudent for both her and myself to abstain from initiating contact. Additionally, she elaborated, However, I have consistently maintained communication with other family members who have maintained contact with her, thereby guaranteeing that I am kept informed about her current condition. Undoubtedly, my compassion extends to anyone who may find themselves confronted with a comparable circumstance.
Lindsie added, When Savannah's relationship with Nic began, I was estranged from my family. By the time I reconnected with them, Nic was still present, but their engagement had been called off. It appears that they briefly reconciled as boyfriend and girlfriend before ultimately breaking up.
Relationships Have Certain Limitations
Consequently, my knowledge and insight into their relationship are limited, as my interactions with them were minimal. Nevertheless, Lindsie acknowledged the depth of love and care that Savannah and Kerdiles shared in their relationship, stating, I am aware of the profound affection and concern they had for each other, which, to my understanding, persisted even after their breakup.
Therefore, I can empathize with the entirety of their grieving process. Regarding the matter of refraining from posting a public tribute to Kerdiles, Lindsie reiterated her previous sentiments expressed on Coffee Convos. She stated that it is her understanding that the family wishes to ensure that Kerdiles' memory is not overshadowed by the Chrisley family.
Found Challenging Predicament
As a result, she has abstained from publishing any content on social media pertaining to this matter. Lindsie further explained that she found herself in a difficult situation due to the recent events, including the Viall Files podcast episode and her addressing it on Coffee Convos. She felt that if she had posted anything about Kerdiles, it would have resulted in a particular narrative being spun.
She added that there is another narrative being spun, and she does not wish to appear hostile or insincere. Lindsie clarified that she is showing respect for what was said and honouring it. She holds the belief that this is the most optimal course of action. She conveyed her condolences to all parties affected by this unfortunate circumstance.
Result Of A Motorcycle Accident
Kerdiles tragically passed away in a motorcycle accident on September 23rd at the age of 29. The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department informed WRKN News 2 that the former NHL professional and Nashville realtor disregarded a stop sign in a residential area north of Nashville while riding his motorcycle at approximately 3:30 a.m.
Authorities have reported that Kerdiles collided with the driver's side of a BMW. Although the other driver did not sustain any apparent injuries, Kerdiles succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital. Savannah expressed her profound grief for Kerdiles through various heartfelt tributes on Instagram, including a Boomerang capturing a tender moment of the two sharing a kiss.
