Todd Chrisley allegedly tried to extort daughter Lindsie with her sex tape a month before his arrest for tax evasion and fraud
Todd Chrisley's daughter Lindsie Chrisley opened up and revealed that he had tried to extort her over a sex tape. The alleged incident took place a month before Todd and his wife were charged with federal tax evasion and bank fraud.
Lindsie had reportedly told the authorities that her own father had tried to extort her to get her to lie about his tax issues because he faces years in prison. Lindsie had also withdrawn from her family after her stepmother Julie and father Todd got arrested recently. They also appeared in court in Atlanta, Georgia on 12 charges of bank fraud and federal tax evasion.
The couple could easily be looking at 30 years in prison should they be convicted. As reported by DailyMail, Lindsie had shared that she wants nothing more to do with her parents as they go on trial. According to TMZ, she had alleged in police reports last month that her brother Chase and father were harassing her with her own sex tape. Lindsie claims that Chase had bought the tape and along with her father were threatening to leak it if she did not lie about an "incident. "
Todd and Julie pleaded not guilty to tax evasion and other federal charges. They had entered their pleas during their initial court appearance before a federal magistrate judge in Atlanta. The judge only agreed to release them on a $100,000 unsecured bond. They were also made to give up their passports and are not permitted to travel outside parts of Georgia and Tennessee. The couple has been accused of bank fraud, conspiracy to commit bank fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and tax evasion.
However, Todd has refuted Lindsie's claims and had told TMZ, "Although our hearts are broken, Lindsie is our daughter and we will always love her." In recent years, Lindsie has not had a great relationship with her family.
