NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Lindsie Chrisley reportedly admitted to her father Todd Chrisley that having premarital sex was the reason she ended up in a failed marriage. Todd discussed his oldest daughter's divorce from her ex-husband Will Campbell after she got married when she was 22 years old on the most recent episode of his podcast 'Chrisley Confessions'.

Todd said in the podcast, "My daughter said to me on her podcast several weeks ago that she would have never married her husband had she not had sex with him before marriage." "The shame and guilt that she had for doing that before marriage is why she married because she felt like that … that cleaned it up … It ended in divorce," he added. The 53-year-old claimed that Lindsie told him that she may have chosen a "different route" and not entered into marriage so quickly if he hadn't "been so hard" on her about premarital sex, Page Six reported.

While having dinner with her family on an episode of her 'Coffee Convos' podcast in October 2022, Lindsie, now 33, also made a passing reference to her divorce. She said she stayed with Campbell longer than she ought to have because of her "desire to have a nuclear family." After nine years of marriage, Lindsie and Campbell announced their separation in July 2021. They added they still "maintain the greatest respect [and] love for one another," while striving to "remain friends [and] be devoted parents to our son whom we both love very much." The couple has a 9-year-old son named Jackson.

The ex-couple experienced a brief separation in 2014 and 2016. They experienced difficulty in 2019 after Robby Hayes and Josh Murray, who had previously been on 'The Bachelorette', were reported to have had "extramarital relationships" with Lindsie. Although Lindsie said it was "freeing" to announce her divorce, she said it also helped her mend her connection with her dad Todd, with whom she hadn't spoken in years.

MEAWW reported earlier that in 2019, Todd accused his daughter Lindsie of cheating on her husband. The father-daughter duo was also the center of another controversy when Todd allegedly tried to extort Lindsie using her sex tape unless Lindsie helped her father fight back the charges of his fraud and tax evasion. He later denied that he ever threatened his daughter. In an episode of his podcast 'Chrisley Confessions' with his wife Julie Chrisley, Todd said he only has love for his daughter.

He said, "Now as far as our oldest daughter Lindsie goes, I will say to you that we are saying nothing other than that we love Lindsie," adding, "She will always be my daughter, that will never change, she is my first-born child. She is loved and this is her moment for her to say whatever she wants to say, regardless of whether it's true or not."
