‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Season 9 on USA Network: Inside the Chrisleys’ unexpected family turmoil #Chrisley #Season #USA #Network #Chrisleys #unexpected #family #turmoil Welcome to Lopoid
Few families have more ongoing conflict than the Chrisleys, the stars of USA’s ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’ The program is not without controversy, but its actors have been involved in more conflicts than a single reality show can manage.
Todd Chrisley and his spouse Julie are no strangers to flaunting their family problems in public, having done it regularly on their program ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ since 2014. According to his bio on the show’s website, Patriarch of Perfection, Todd’s parenting approach towards his five kids — Grayson, Savannah, Chase, Kyle, and Lindsie — has been covered in the series, as has his “remarkable ability to dish insults.” Off-screen problems including purported tax evasion, extortion, and a sex tape have shaken the “picture-perfect Southern clan who have everything money can buy,” according to USA Network. Isn’t it a lot to take in? It is, but we’ve deconstructed the melodrama and family disputes for you.
Who is Lindsie Chrisley? Todd Chrisley’s estranged daughter ‘saddened’ after he’s found guilty of $30M fraud
Chrisley DID NOT know best! Todd and Julie Chrisley could face 30 YEARS in prison
Todd and Julie Chrisley were found guilty of fraud and tax evasion
The Justice Department revealed in early June 2022 that reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley had been found guilty of tax evasion. Their accountant was also found guilty of several tax offenses. Before the couple’s show, ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ premiered in 2014, they planned to swindle Atlanta-area community banks out of more than $30 million in personal loans. The Chrisleys and their former business partner falsified paperwork to get millions of dollars in illegal loans, which they subsequently spent on vehicles, clothing, real estate, and vacation. They utilized fresh loans to repay previous ones. Peter Tarantino, the couple’s accountant, was found guilty of conspiracy to cheat the IRS and filing two fake corporate tax returns on behalf of the Chrisleys’ firm. The Chrisleys and Tarantino are due to be sentenced on October 6, 2022.
Lindsie’s reported affairs with alums of the ‘Bachelorette’
Lindsie stated in a July 2019 police complaint that Todd and Chase planned to leak a sex tape, including her. Lindsie’s father later told E! News that the family had sought to keep her extramarital affairs with Robby Hayes and Josh Murray [during her marriage to Campbell] hidden for her benefit since August 2016. Despite the charges, Murray asserted that he and Lindsie had been friends for years, while Hayes claimed that he did not produce a sex tape with her. Instead, he said they were captured on a security camera. Lindsie’s counsel said that she has been the ongoing victim of falsehoods, abuse, and threats from her family and, as a result, has been estranged from the Chrisleys since 2017.
Kyle’s run-in with the law
Kyle was arrested and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine in May 2019 after police discovered narcotics in his car in Oklahoma. He was also wanted in Georgia for reportedly making murder threats against his ex-girlfriend Alexus Whilby. Kyle’s drug charges in Oklahoma were dropped by the district attorney. In Georgia, he was arrested for terroristic threats and freed on his own recognizance.
The custody battle over Chloe, Kyle’s daughter
After welcoming daughter Chloe with ex Angela Johnson in November 2012, Todd’s eldest son struggled with addiction. In 2013, when Kyle was arrested and charged with violence, the ‘Chrisley Confessions’ cohost was given joint custody of his granddaughter with Johnson. Kyle said in 2014 that his father “stole” Chloe from him because she would be a good fit for his demographic on the reality program. Todd, on the other hand, appeared to respond to the allegations on Twitter, stating, “My son Kyle is bipolar, he suffers from mental illness, he will struggle for life.” After Johnson was jailed in 2016 for allegedly scamming Medicaid and food assistance, Todd was given full custody of Chloe.
Todd and Lindsie’s animosity begins
Since her elopement with Will Campbell in January 2012, the patriarch’s relationship with his oldest child has been strained. Although he subsequently pardoned his son-in-law for failing to obtain his consent before the wedding, Todd was not pleased, telling E! News that Lindsie should never have tolerated such disrespect. He also expressed dissatisfaction with how the marriage began. Not only on Will’s side, but also his daughter’s. He didn’t believe the marriage began as it should have, and certainly not as a parent would like to see a marriage begin.
Todd’s relationship with Lindsie deteriorated further after that, with her final appearance on ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ aired in 2017 during Season 5. He said in August 2021 that her problems with the family stemmed from her hatred for Savannah. Todd claimed to Entertainment Tonight that Lindsie was having an inner war within herself, as well as envy among her siblings. Savannah had a lot more social media followers at first, and then she wasn’t getting enough time on the show.
Following the couple’s convictions, USA Network will telecast the second half of Season 9 of ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ on Thursday, June 23, 2022, at 9.00 pm ET.
