As of 2023, Robert Shiver's estimated net worth stands at a significant sum, reported to be between $9 and $10 million. This figure encompasses his property, earnings, and other assets.

Family Life and Turmoil

Talking about family life, his first married life was with Lindsay Shiver and together they had three children. However, that relation ran into a critical situation due to Lindsay Shiver being charged of conspiring to murder Robert.

The entire story behind their marital upheaval is both mind-boggling and disturbing as we shall find out later in this article.

Despite facing financial implications stemming from his ongoing divorce and the associated legal battles, Robert's financial status remains substantial.

The attention surrounding his net worth has intensified due to his newfound relationship with Savannah Chrisley, prompting speculation and varying fan reactions regarding the nature of their romance and its potential motivations.

Marital Life with Lindsay Shiver and Kids

In August 2007, Robert met Lindsay at a fitness class at Auburn University and built a bond and started dating. A couple of years later, they got married on March 7, 2010.

In the early days, their marital life flourished and they both were quite accepting of each other. Robert and Lindsay together had 3 children, all of which were boys.

Grayson Shiver was born on March 13, 2012, Landon Shiver was born on April 2, 2013, and Rhett Shiver was born on February 15, 2019.

However, their relationship took a dark turn when Lindsay allegedly plotted to harm Robert amid their divorce proceedings. This tumultuous situation has not only garnered public attention but also led to legal complications involving Lindsay and her alleged accomplices.

The "Private Jet" Incident

At some point (reportedly in February-2023), the relationship between Robert and Lindsay started getting tense. Robert seemingly found out or had conclusive suspicion of his wife's secret affair with someone named Terrance Bethel, 28, from Bahama. This made him take on a tough stand, and he filed for a divorce.

During legal proceedings, Lindsay revealed that she was in debt beyond her capacity to pay, which weakened her stand further.

The conflict grew louder around July 16 when one day Robert blocked Lindsay from accessing the jet he was boarding with his 3 children. Eventually, the police was called in.

Lindsay quickly accused Robert of physical violence, and the police had to begin careful investigation.

The bodycam footage was examined which revealed a heated argument between Robert and Lindsay where Robert was seen opposing Lindsay from boarding the plane. Robert took a firm stand and strongly denied accusations of physical violence.

This entire episode of conflict and drama set the stage for a long and contentious legal battle, as what happens in most marital dispute cases.

Hitman Allegations on Lindsay – The Shocking Twist

As if the fight between Lindsay and Robert was not already ugly enough, that it took a far more dirty twist when police suddenly discovered a plot hatched by Lindsay to actually harm and "kill" Robert.

The most intriguing part of the story is how this entire plot uncovered in a totally different place from where Robert and Lindsay were actually living.

According to the website Bahamas Court News, the police were involved in investigating a "break-in" at "Grabber's Bar and Grill on Guana," and while examining the WhatsApp messages of a suspect, they suddenly came across a detailed plan to kill Robert Shiver.

According to the prosecutors - Lindsay Shiver, 36, her alleged lover, Terrance Bethel, 28, and another 29-year-old man Faron Newbold together conspired to kill Lindsay's estranged husband Robert Shiver.

Faron Newbold was supposed to be the assassin in this crime plot. Terrance Bethel, however, claims that the police has actually exaggerated the context of the chat messages and that there was no actual plot of a real conspiracy.

At this point, its worth noting that Robert and Lindsay had connections to the Bahamas previously. Robert supposedly owns a holiday home in the Bahamas and used to travel there frequently with his family on his private jet. This fact gives an insight into the Bahamas connection of the entire plot.

Though it is still not fully known as to how Lindsay and her lover "Terrance Adrien Bethel" got into an affair.

Lindsay's Detention and Bail

Lindsay was arrested on July 21. The police went forward with examination of her mobile phone and allegedly found messages of instructions to kill Robert. The police informed Robert who replied with counter accusations of cheating, multiple affairs, and manipulative behavior on Lindsay.

Lindsay was detained in Nassau's Fox Hill prison initially, but was later released on bail, reportedly of amount $100,000. The bail had conditions. She was required to wear a GPS ankle monitor all the time, report to the police thrice a week, and stay in the Bahamas until further orders.

A court hearing was scheduled for October 5, 2023, as well.

Robert moves on with Savannah Chrisley

Even though Robert continues with the legal battles against Lindsay, he seems to have found a new life with a new friend, Savannah Chrisley, and both are reportedly dating.

Their relationship is already somewhat of a public matter, and people are pouring in their reactions. Some of the internet viewers believe that Savannah gave attention to Robert because of his net worth, which unofficially estimated to be around $9-$10 million.

Though Savannah says she found Robert to be a "normal guy" and this is what attracted her, who knows what's going on in her mind.

For now, all we know is that they seem to be getting together well enough. As per information, Savannah is about 12 years younger to Robert and she initiated contact through online messaging sometime in November, 2023.
