"I'm going to put it in my own words so therefore it cannot be twisted or contorted," the 52-year-old said on the "Chrisley Confessions" podcast. "I want to be very clear that it is a very sad day, that this is the news that I went to bed with last night and that I prayed about and that I woke up again with this morning with these press requests."

The Chrisley Knows Best star explained that he hoped his kids would not go through divorces after having split from his high school sweetheart Teresa Terry because of "what it did to Lindsie and Kyle."

Todd maintained that he always got along with his eldest daughter's estranged husband, and said Campbell was a "good provider to my daughter and to my grandson [Jackson]."

"He and his family have always been very supportive of Lindsie and Jackson to the best of my knowledge," Todd said. However, he admitted that his knowledge on the topic was "very limited."

The businessman explained that he was happy to know that Jackson had a relationship with Campbell's family, who "have been wonderful grandparents and are really the only grandparents that Jackson knows". Todd also said he hopes they maintain the relationship because "I want Jackson to have as little disruption as possible."

That said, the TV personality admitted that he wasn't fully sure if Jackson still had a relationship with Campbell's parents because he hasn't spoken to Lindsie in some time. However, Todd held firm that the distance is for the best because there "can't be fighting when there is no communication."

"I pray for all of my children every day, every night before I got to bed, every morning when I raise my head," Todd noted. "So I will continue to do so."

Meanwhile, Lindsie's brother Chase also spoke out on the podcast, noting there has been "a lot written and a lot talked about that was not true but at the end of the day, Lindsie's still my sister and I love her and if she ever needed me I'm a phone call away."

Chase's statement came nearly two years after Lindsie alleged that Todd and Chase had tried to blackmail her with a sex tape involving Bachelorette alum Robby Hayes, which he denied.

Chase said that because Lindsie was a half-sibling to him, Savannah and Grayson, the podcast host felt like "she was always on the outside looking in," but was adamant that while this was not the case, he does understand her "perspective."

"I don't understand how all these kids can come from the same household, be given the same thing and they love the same," he said, "and then you have one that loathes all of their other siblings."

"I raised her, so I claim her. She's made the statement that she has no siblings, you do have siblings," Todd said. "You have four."

"No, I did not know that Lindsie and Will were separated, no I did not know that they weren't living in the same house, living separate lives. I didn't know anything about that… I didn't know any of this," Todd clarified.

Todd posted a cryptic message on Instagram saying "I’m here. I love you" but did not name Lindsie.

Lindsie and Campbell first got together in 2009 before tying the knot in 2012. After announcing the split, the "Coffee Convos" host maintained that the former flames will "remain friends & be devoted parents to our son."

According to divorce papers obtained by The Sun, the 31-year-old filed on July 26 and requested a "shared parenting plan in the best interests of the child" and permanent and temporary child support.
