After being charged with multiple counts of wire fraud and state tax evasion, Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley were found guilty by a jury in June, the AP reported. The couple’s trial, which lasted about a month, saw testimony from various parties – including Todd’s eldest daughter, Lindsie Chrisley. Not only did she testify, but Lindsie’s testimony was largely in favor of Todd. Well, that may come as a surprise to those who’ve been following the Chrisleys, as it’s well known that Lindsie and Todd haven’t had a typical father-daughter relationship in recent years.
In 2019, per People, an estranged Lindsie accused her father and brother Chase Chrisley of racketeering and blackmail over an alleged sex tape she made with former “Bachelorette” contestant Robby Hayes. And while Todd denied those claims, he seemingly fueled the feud by claiming that Lindsie actually cheated on her then-husband, Will Campbell. The father-daughter duo then had an even more strained relationship when “Chrisley Knows Best’s” parents got into legal trouble.
However, judging by Lindsie’s attitude during the trial, her relationship with Todd seems to have taken a new turn. Here’s what the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch had to say about his daughter taking the stand.
With the Chrisleys, everything is love
Amid their legal woes, Todd and Julie Chrisley appear to have found a silver lining. Speaking about Lindsie’s decision to testify on his behalf, Todd assured fans that despite everything that has happened to her family, it’s all love. “At the end of the day, she’s our child and I love her, and we’ve still got to work through that,” the reality star admitted (via Us Weekly) during an episode of his Chrisley Confessions podcast.
As he continued to speak, Todd shared how comforting it was to see Lindsie shatter their feud during the trial. “Because I sit in my feelings like she sits in hers,” he said. “But she put her pride aside and went on the stand and said, ‘I was wrong in listening to the information I heard.'”
Lindsie, on the other hand, has also expressed interest in a reconciliation with her father, as revealed on a June 23 episode of Coffee Convos, her podcast with Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry. “I’m also going to go on record today and say I love my parents, I love my siblings, I love my grandmother,” Lindsie said, before adding that she “continues to be through the good, the bad, and the ugly to them.” will stand. Unfortunately, Todd and Julie are yet to see the worst as Deadline reports they face up to 30 years in prison at their upcoming hearing in October.
