The Chrisley Family Feud just went from bitter to downright crazy…and juicy!
Lindsie Chrisley is asking– via a new statement from her lawyer– her family to leave her alone, hours after it was exposed that she told law enforcement that her estranged dad Todd and brother Chase have been threatening to expose her sex tape with a certain star of the Bachelor franchise!
TMZ revealed on Thursday that Lindsie filed a police report last month claiming that “Todd and Chase threatened to release the sex tape if she didn’t lie about a certain ‘incident.'” The site’s sources state that the ‘incident’ had to do with the tax evasion situation that got Todd and his wife Julie arrested earlier this week.
Other members of the Chrisley family have blamed Lindsie for the arrests, claiming that she helped turn Todd and Julie in to the feds. (The Chrisleys maintain that they are innocent of the crimes they’re accused of.)
In a statement sent to The Ashley on Thursday by Lindsie’s attorney, Lindsie denied having any part in taking down her parents.
“Lindsie would like nothing more than to be left alone and go about her own business,” the statement reads. “Unfortunately, certain members of her family will not let her live in peace. We are flabbergasted at the audacity of Todd and Chase Chrisley, who are more focused on attacking my client rather than defending themselves against the allegations of criminal conduct. While it is not necessary to detail their repugnant actions, it is important to note that the allegations are of serious crimes against Lindsie.
“Lindsie has made a complaint of their acts to law enforcement, and she will provide them whatever they need in the course of their investigation into her family’s actions. Lindsie
prays for a just outcome so that she can go forward with her life safe from those who are looking to do her harm.”
Her statement makes no mention of the alleged sex tape, which TMZ claimed she made with a guy who had once been featured on the Bachelor franchise.
On Thursday, Todd exposed that Lindsie— who has been married to Will Campbell since 2012— had affairs with not one but two members of Bachelor Nation: Josh Murray (the winner on Andi Dorfman‘s season of The Bachelorette), and Robby Hayes (the runner-up on JoJo Fletcher‘s season).
Both men are seen posing with Lindsie in the Instagram photo below, which was posted by Josh in 2016.
The gentlemen caller who made the tape with Lindsie, though, is Robby, according to Todd.
“We have tried to keep Lindsie’s extramarital relationships with Robby Hayes and Josh Murray private for her sake since August of 2016,” Todd said in a statement on Thursday. “Sadly, for reasons we can only guess at, she ran to the sheriff’s office to accuse her brother of buying a sex tape of her and Robby, which was a complete lie, and now she’s telling more lies about me. Although our hearts are broken, Lindsie is our daughter and we will always love her.”
Robby has yet to speak publicly about the allegations, but Josh released a statement to Entertainment Tonight. Although he slammed the Chrisleys for their actions, he did not specifically state that their claims that he hooked up with Lindsie are false.
“I know Todd and his family are going through some tough times right now and I pray everything works out in their favor,” Josh said in the statement. “They should probably focus on how not to be imprisoned for 30 years rather than spreading gossip to try and hurt their daughter. I truly believe they are good people and I wish them the best in however they choose to go about their actions.”
