More drama in the Chrisley family is coming to light.
Todd Chrisleyand his wife Julie wereindicted for tax evasionearlier this week, and now, the patriarch is being accused of attempted extortion by his eldest daughter, Lindsie Chrisley — whom her older brother has accused of turning their parents into authorities in the first place.
According to a Georgia police reportobtained byTMZ, Lindsie, who is estranged from Todd, alleged that her father and brother, Chase, harassed and threatened her over an alleged sex tape. In the report filed July 16 and alsoobtained byE! News, Lindsie asserted that Todd and Chase “wanted her to lie about an incident and if she refused to do so, they were going to release the sex tape involving her.”
She said in the report that she learned her brother claimed to have purchased such a sex tape, and also stated that “there is an ongoing issue with her family threatening and harassing her.”
In a statement to PEOPLE on Thursday, Chase denied Lindsie’s allegations and said, “I love my sister and I don’t understand why she’s doing this to our family. Not only am I heartbroken over these false allegations by my sister — and they are totally false — but so are my parents and the rest of our family.”
On Thursday, Todd also denied Lindsie’s extortion claims — and went on to allege that she has been intimately involved with two formerBachelorettecontestants: Robby Hayes and Josh Murray.
“It’s heartbreaking and shameful that these kinds of accusations have to be aired in public. We have tried to keep Lindsie’s extramarital relationships with Robby Hayes and Josh Murray private for her sake since August of 2016,” he said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.
“Sadly, for reasons we can only guess at, she ran to the sheriff’s office to accuse her brother of buying a sex tape of her and Robby, which was a complete lie, and now she’s telling more lies about me,” Todd continued. “Although our hearts are broken, Lindsie is our daughter and we will always love her.”
In response to Todd’s claims that Lindsie engaged in two extramarital affairs and appeared in a sex tape, her attorney, Musa Ghanayem, said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE on Thursday: “Lindsie would like nothing more than to be left alone and go about her own business.”
“Unfortunately, certain members of her family will not let her live in peace. We are flabbergasted at the audacity of Todd and Chase Chrisley, who are more focused on attacking my client rather than defending themselves against the allegations of criminal conduct,” the statement continued. “While it is not necessary to detail their repugnant actions, it is important to note that the allegations are of serious crimes against Lindsie. Lindsie has made a complaint of their acts to law enforcement, and she will provide them whatever they need in the course of their investigation into her family’s actions. Lindsie prays for a just outcome so that she can go forward with her life safe from those who are looking to do her harm.”
