The Chrisley Is aware of Greatest star and his spouse, Julie, settled in with ET, telling them to “ask us no matter you need to ask us” in a frank dialogue in regards to the actuality TV household and their estranged relationship with the 31-year-old amid her personal private divorce drama.
In fact, followers will recall that Lindsie left the hit actuality present again in 2017 earlier than later accusing her father of extorting her with a intercourse tape — a declare Todd denies.

Regardless, he did have rather a lot to say, together with updating followers about how not too long ago he and Lindsie have communicated — and what he did with the message upon receiving it on his cellphone (beneath):
“I acquired a textual content message from Lindsie about two weeks in the past. I turned that over to our attorneys as a result of we don’t really feel that it’s protected to speak. Each time that I’ve achieved that it’s been twisted and turned, and within the place we’re in, we will’t run that threat. I’m unhappy in regards to the scenario. I’m unhappy that my daughter selected to make choices that she’s made in her life. However if you get married, marriage is meant to be ceaselessly and also you’re speculated to have a dedication to one another.”
And whereas Chrisley’s speak is clearly self-serving right here, he nonetheless claimed that Lindsie’s points all return to “jealousy” and “hate” relating to the household’s ascent to fame years in the past and now-23-year-old daughter Savannah’s reputation on social media.
“She is my daughter and I really like her. There was just a few form of emotional battle that Lindsie has had inside herself, and jealousy amongst her siblings. It began out with Savannah having far more social media followers, after which [she] wasn’t getting sufficient time on the present. … Lindsie wasn’t, at the moment, prepared to permit the cameras into her private life. She wouldn’t inform the world something. There was by no means any extortion, that was all used for headlines. That was used to achieve social media following. She’s our daughter, and I’ll inform you that the anger was there for a very long time. Revenge and anger belongs to the satan. So I walked with the satan. I used to be dancing with the satan there for a minute. I needed to keep in mind that I’m a father first. When you’ve gotten youngsters and also you self-discipline your youngsters, the world’s not gonna see that. However when Todd Chrisley disciplines his youngsters, it’s a headline.”
Hmmm… all this over social media followers?! Possibly, however tax fraud allegations and extortion claims are so much greater than that!
BTW, for these unfamiliar with the Chrisley fam, Todd has 5 youngsters, the eldest being Lindsie, adopted by Kyle — who was lengthy estranged from his dad and siblings up till this yr. The brother and sister pair have been welcomed throughout a earlier marriage to Teresa Terry, whereas half-siblings Chase, Savannah, and Grayson share momma Julie.

Later within the interview, the poppa opined about whether or not he thought there was hope for him to ever reconcile together with his eldest daughter sooner or later:
“I pray to God on daily basis. It has been the toughest factor as a result of I don’t know the place you go from that. While you’ve had a toddler that you’ve cherished the best way that Lindsie has been cherished, and this occurs. All I can do is pray that God blesses her, and God offers her peace of thoughts and that God restores what may be restored.”
Now, for her half, Lindsie’s workforce additionally delivered a brand new assertion to ET on Monday.
In it, she principally maintained what she’s all the time maintained — that she’d moderately discuss these points along with her father privately, versus via media retailers or social media posts:
“She has tried to debate these issues personally moderately than via a forwards and backwards within the media, however since that isn’t being reciprocated, she feels the necessity to converse up and defend herself from these and additional false claims. Regarding the jealousy situation, there was by no means a jealousy situation, particularly over followers or social media so far as Lindsie is anxious. Lindsie very a lot so has a life outdoors of the general public eye and has labored through the years to protect that. She drove forwards and backwards from Atlanta to Nashville for nearly a yr to maintain filming going and in the end determined to depart the present when it was now not a wholesome atmosphere for her and her son.”
And so, the estrangement — and the drama — continues.
BTW, another factor earlier than we go: Julie revealed to ET that the household’s short-term future included a transfer out of Nashville and again to their house state of South Carolina.
And Todd shortly chimed in that the transfer house was, partially, with a purpose to put together himself for a run to “go into some type of politics” at that time.
Julie defined extra:
“We’ve been collectively a very long time and I’m not bailing now, so politics or no politics I’m gonna stick in there. We’re gonna do what we’ve all the time achieved, which is come collectively as a workforce and see what occurs. I’ve had this dialog about our personal youngsters, and nearly this technology, of how simple it’s to simply throw within the towel and simply begin over. Every part is so disposable. Is our marriage excellent? No, it’s not, however I do suppose we’ve got this mutual respect and we each agreed that we’re not falling by the wayside, regardless of how robust issues get.”
Simply think about Todd Chrisley going into politics, with the state of our nation at this time and most of its politicians as they’re proper now… come to consider it, he’ll match proper in.
What do U make of all this, Perezcious readers?? Politics amid tax fraud indictments and intercourse tape extortion allegations?! Is that basically the wisest transfer??
Really, don’t reply that; we’ve already seen how that seems. Sigh…
Anyhow, sound OFF about Todd, Lindsie, and every part Chrisley-related down within the feedback (beneath)…
