Lindsie’s Claims Against Todd & Chase
According to sources, Lindsie has been estranged from Todd and the rest of the Chrisleys for years. She even reported to Georgia police that her father and half-brother, Chase, attempted to extort her. This extortion was in the form of a sex tape purchase.
Lindsie claimed that Chase purchased a sex tape of Lindsie and that he as well as Todd had threatened to blackmail her with. If she didn’t lie for the family about a certain incident, most likely involving Todd’s tax evasion and fraud, then they would leak the tape to the public.
In addition to this accusation, Lindsie stated that Todd was also responsible for physical abuse, harassment, and other forms of blackmail. However, Lindsie has since revoked many of these accusations, and she even took the side of Todd and Julie during the trial.
The sex tape investigation was recently closed. According to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department where the case was created, the accusations are not valid. The incident did not occur within their jurisdiction, so the case was dropped.
Is There a Chance for Reconciliation?

Lindsie has also stated that she would love to reunite with the family. Of course, there are some major obstacles involved. Especially considering both Todd and Lindsie have made legal claims against each other.
Even though Lindsie apparently wants to reconcile with her father, she has told sources that she will never return to the show. If there is a reunion, it will be off-camera in a private setting.
