Amid their nasty family feud and war of words, Todd Chrisley‘s estranged daughter Lindsie is cooperating with authorities amid the reality TV patriarch’s tax evasion nightmare, Spiel News..com can exclusively report.
In an exclusive statement to Spiel News..com, an attorney for the the Coffee Convos podcast host said: “We forwarded all communication between Lindsie and Todd, as well as other parties in her family, to the United States Attorney’s office to be investigated.”
In addition to Todd’s financial charges, he could also have other legal issues to worry about. Radar can report the married mom, 29, filed a police report against her father on July 16, 2019 in Cherokee County, Georgia.
According to sources, she claimed her famous father and brother Chase, 23, “wanted her to lie about an incident and if she refused to do so, they were going to release [a] sex tape involving her.”
The report also allegedly stated “there is an ongoing issue with her family threatening and harassing her.”
“Todd Chrisley is going to say anything that he can right now so that he can try and get out of his current situation,” Musa M. Ghanayem of Ghanayem & Rayasam law firm told Radar exclusively.
“We forwarded all communication between Lindsie and Todd, as well as other parties in her family, to the United States Attorney’s office to be investigated. We will continue to forward any and all information to them to make sure that crimes being committed against my client are investigated.”
“Todd Chrisley is not above the law and, in my 20 years of practice, I have never seen anyone be exonerated from the charges such as he is facing. If Martha Stewart went to prison at the height of her career, so can anyone else.”
Despite Lindsie’s allegations, Todd denied he or his son Chase extorted, threatened or harassed his oldest daughter.
“Although our hearts are broken, Lindsie is our daughter and we will always love her,” he said in a statement.
On Tuesday, August 13, Todd and his wife, Julie, 46, were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges including bank fraud, tax evasion and wire fraud conspiracy.
One day later, the couple surrendered in Georgia federal court. They were arraigned, and released on bond.
Lindsie was accused by her brother Kyle of betraying the family and tipping off authorities about the alleged crimes, which her attorney said was “absolutely not true.”
“In regards to Kyle, it is well known that Kyle struggles with demons. Everyone is aware of that,” Ghanayem told Radar. “He has zero credibility.”
Radar exclusively reported that Kyle, who has been open about his struggle with addiction, was arrested on April 16, 2013, and charged with battery after he allegedly beat Lindsie in a rage.
Fulton County Court could not confirm the disposition of the case, but a source told Radar the charge was lowered to a misdemeanor after he agreed to take a domestic violence class.
