Lindsie reportedly filed a police report accusing her father and brother Chase of threatening her with the sex tape. Lindsie claimed her brother purchased the tape. Sources close to the family said the extortion was to get Lindsie to change her testimony regarding the tax fraud.

Todd denied any involvement in the sex tape incident. (RELATED: Todd And Julie Chrisley Turn Themselves In To FBI After Federal Tax Evasion Charges)

“It’s heartbreaking and shameful that these kinds of accusations have to be aired in public,” Todd said in a statement Friday to Page Six. “We have tried to keep Lindsie’s extramarital relationships private for her sake since August of 2016. Sadly, for reasons we can only guess at, she ran to the sheriff’s office and then to the press to accuse her brother of buying a sex tape of her, 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.”

• Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots • ???????????? ???? Over the last week, I’ve been taking some time to reflect on life & my purpose. I think we all find ourselves in the comparison game. It’s truly an act of violence against ourselves & the ultimate thief of joy. I get on social media & see hateful comments for no reason or someone comparing their life & appearance to someone else. I’m guilty of comparing, but why do we do it? I did an “ask me questions,” a few days ago & the majority of the things asked were superficial or hurtful. I believe that we all need to remember… no matter what we look like on the outside, the inside is what truly matters. Your highest form of strength is internal. Fill your heart with what is important & be done with all the rest ???????????? ⭐️ Are you a positive light in others lives? Do you go out of your way to do things for others without expecting anything in return?????????
