Chrisley Knows Best stars Todd and Julie Chrisley denied his estranged daughter Lindsie Chrisley's bombshell accusations during a recent Dr. Phil interview in a statement via their rep. The couple claimed that Lindsie lied repeatedly during her sit-down with the TV personality. During the segment, Lindsie alleged that Todd accused her of sleeping with the tax official who brought about their tax evasion indictment.
Lindsie, 29, claimed that Todd, 50, believed there was "an affair going on" between her and the Georgia Department of Revenue's Office of Special Investigations Joshua Waites.
Todd was allegedly was suspicious that Lindsie was cooperating with the investigation regarding the couple's tax evasion case and she claimed that he "threatened" her with incriminating evidence including nude photos and a sex tape, which she claimed does not exist.
"Lindsie Chrisley made false statements with regards to not only her involvement with Todd and Julie Chrisley's tax situation but also with Joshua Waites from the Georgia Department of Revenue and also that she was threatened and coerced to make them. In June of 2019, Lindsie Chrisley gave a deposition to Todd Chrisley's lawyers on her own volition," Todd and Julie's statement to Entertainment Tonight read.
It continued, "This deposition was on June 8th of 2019. In her interview, which aired yesterday on Dr. Phil, she stated that she was threatened and coerced on June the 7th — which was literally the day before the deposition where she voluntarily explains her involvement with Joshua Waites and the investigation by the GDOR. In addition, after this deposition, she willingly handed over a multitude of text messages which spanned over an 18-month period between her and Joshua Waites, which clearly signifies a long-term relationship."
The pair went on to explain that they believed Lindsie had a clear intention of causing them harm.
"By the nature of the text messages, it's clear that she was a willing participant in providing information. For example, in one text she says, 'So they are shutting it down,' in reference to the Chrisley Knows Best USA reality show that she was fired from. This shows her whole motivation and goal in working with Joshua Waites and the GDOR," the statement concluded.
Todd and Julie recently settled the $2 million George state tax evasion case against them but they are still facing federal charges.
