Inside Todd's drama with daughter Lindsie Chrisley.

Before Todd was married to Julie, he was married to Teresa Terry, who is the mother of Kyle and Lindsie. Todd's oldest two kids were featured on the first season of Chrisley Knows Best, but they soon exited the show amid rumors that they were estranged from Todd. 

Lindsie and Todd's relationship began to appear strained on the show when Todd openly discussed how he didn't like Lindsie's husband, Will Campbell, whom she has a son with.

After the tax evasion charges broke, Todd finally began to address the rumors of his estrangement from Lindsie. He accused her of bringing the charges to the police and for turning her back on the family. 

He then alleged that Lindsie had been hiding multiple instances of infidelity with two former Bachelorette contestants, Robby Hayes and Josh Murray. He alleged that she had sex tapes with both men, and that he had tried to prevent them from being released in the past.

The slander against Lindsie makes it appear like the two will not be reconciling for some time, although Todd did say that he would always have love for his daughter. In the meantime, he looks to be focused on further mending his relationship with Kyle.
