Opinionated with a quick-witted Southern tongue, Todd Chrisley gives audiences a no-filter look into his lavish lifestyle on his hit reality series Chrisley Knows Best. The USA Network show follows the Chrisleys as they navigate life in the public eye, but fans have noticed that one member of the family is missing.
While Todd's youngest children — Chase, Savannah, and Grayson — are regularly featured on the popular reality series, the TV dad’s eldest child no longer appears on the show. After a reported fallout with her strict father a few years ago, Lindsie and Todd’s relationship reportedly remains fractured.
Does Lindsie Chrisley talk to her family?
Lindsie and Todd’s fallout seemingly started after Lindsie eloped with then-husband Will Campbell in 2012. As USA Network’s website states, “[Lindsie] stunned her father, Todd, with her decision to elope and then five months later surprised him even more with the news that she was expecting her first child.”
She welcomed a son named Jackson in 2013.
The couple reportedly filed for divorce in 2016, and although they attempted to rebuild their marriage and remain together after their legal separation, Lindsie is currently single.
In 2017, the eldest Chrisley sibling left the show after reports surfaced of her strained relationship with her dad.
"I kind of felt like an outcast,” Lindsie explained on her podcast Coffee Convos, referring to her stepmom Julie and half-siblings. “Even though they didn’t make me feel like that intentionally, I just felt that way.”
In January 2019, Todd posted a cryptic message on Instagram, which many fans believed to be about Lindsie, which read, “One of the hardest things you will ever have to do is grieve the loss of a person who is still alive."
While he didn’t directly tag Lindsie in the post, he captioned the quote, “Grief won’t last forever, one day you wake up and realize that life goes on and God has given you another day and another opportunity to find happiness elsewhere."
As of 2021, Lindsie and her family do not follow each other on social media.
Who is Lindsie Chrisley's biological mother?
However, in 2018, Lindsie revealed that she was legally adopted by her stepmom Julie.
“I am from my dad’s first marriage. So his last three kids are from my dad and his wife on the show. So my stepmom adopted me legally,” she shared on her podcast before adding, "I just wanted to do whatever I could to make myself feel a part of. I always felt like something wasn’t whole."
Lindsie hosts her hit podcast with 'Teen Mom 2' star Kailyn Lowry.
Since walking away from reality television, Lindsie continues to have a budding career in the spotlight. The mother-of-one has a podcast called Coffee Convos with Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry, where the longtime friends regularly discuss their everyday lives. And nothing is off the table, from relationships to travel stories to humiliating moments.
In October 2020, Lindsie addressed her estranged parents' snubbing her on National Daughter's Day as he gave an Instagram shoutout to Savannah but not her.
“There were posts that my dad and Julie made on their Instagrams that were like saying happy National Daughter’s Day to Savannah or something like that,” Lindsie said on Coffee Convos, noting they did the same thing the year before.
She continued,“I feel like two sides of it, right? So, I feel like if you’re going to do it to be petty, then you shouldn’t just post it at all because then you’re just like showing your cards. Also, if you’re going to do it, make sure you’re doing it from a genuine place. If you just don’t consider me your daughter, don’t go on your podcast and be like, ‘Oh, I still love her. I still this, I still that,’ but then your actions aren’t consistent with what you say.”
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there's a reconciliation coming anytime soon for Lindsie Chrisley and her estranged family.
