Lindsie Chrisley clarified that her surprising reconciliation with father Todd Chrisley had “nothing” to do with his conviction on fraud charges.
The former reality star, 32, addressed rumors on her podcast “Southern Tea” that she and the real estate mogul, 53, were “reconnected over the process.”
“I can confidently tell you that for whatever legal reason there has been no reconnection,” she explained. “Nothing like that ever happened.”
Instead, Lindsie attributed her 2021 divorce from Will Campbell to causing her and Todd’s reunion.
“After my divorce stuff went public, my dad posted, ‘I’m here, I love you, whatever’s happening in your life right now, I see it,’” she recalled.
“That’s actually more how we were able to reconnect,” Lindsie continued. “[It was] especially because of my divorce.”
The “Growing Up Chrisley” alum and Campbell, 33, revealed their split via social media in July 2021.
The following month, Todd sent Lindsie his support via Instagram, leaving her “really…shocked” for blocking her dad and not being able to see his posts.
“We have each other’s numbers,” she said on an August 2021 episode of her “Coffee Convos” podcast.
Lindsie called Todd’s comment “triggering” in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” and said they would “never” talk again.
“Because of last year’s therapy, I was just advised by my therapist not to tune in, not follow along on social media,” she explained in September 2021. “So I try to distance myself from that as much as possible.”
However, when Todd and his wife, Julie Chrisley, were found guilty of fraud and tax evasion in June, Lindsie supported them.
“The verdict is not what I hoped or prayed for, and I am deeply saddened for myself, my son and my family as a whole,” she wrote via Instagram Stories after the verdict. “Please pray for us at this difficult time.”
