Todd and Julie Chrisley sat down for what they admitted was their first interview since drama with Lindsie started hitting the fan. Before the interview began, Todd noted the outlet was free to ask anything. There were no off-limits questions. He and his wife Julie were an open book. As the interview progressed, Todd Chrisley got candid. He spilled the truth on what really broke his relationship with Lindsie. Where did all this drama begin?
The war between Savannah and Lindsie Chrisley
According to his interview with ET, there is a bit of a war between Savannah and Lindsie. Todd explains this whole thing started over Instagram followers. To be more specific, Savannah and significantly more followers than Lindsie. And, that bothered her.
He explained: “It started out with Savannah having way more social media followers, and then [she] wasn’t getting enough time on the show. … Lindsie wasn’t, at that time, willing to allow the cameras into her personal life. She wouldn’t tell the world anything.”
She is my daughter and I love her. There was just some kind of emotional battle that Lindsie has had within herself, and jealousy amongst her siblings.”
She did try to contact her father recently
Todd Chrisley tells the media outlet that it hasn’t been that long since Lindsie tried to speak with him. He noted that he received a text message from her just two weeks prior to the interview. For legal reasons, he doesn’t feel comfortable talking to her at this point in time. So, he keeps his estranged daughter at arm’s length.
He continued to explain: “I turned that over to our attorneys because we don’t feel that it’s safe to communicate. Every time that I’ve done that it’s been twisted and turned, and in the position, we’re in, we can’t run that risk.”
According to Todd Chrisley, everything he says to Lindsie gets twisted and turned into something else. So, for his own safety, he turns over any communication attempts on her part and he doesn’t respond to her.
Lindsie Chrisley did take to her own Instagram Stories to announce she would comment on everything her father has been saying during her next Coffee Convos episode. She, however, wanted it to be clear she was not trying to get ahead of a story. She wanted to tell her side of the story. And, she thought everyone should be held accountable for their actions.
