The Truth About Lindsie Chrisley

Chrisley Knows Best alum Lindsie Chrisley
is best known as the eldest daughter of real estate developer and master of snark, Todd
Chrisley. But although Lindsie has since moved on from
the show, she can’t seem to shake the family penchant for controversy. This is the untold truth of Lindsie Chrisley. “On a scale of one to ten, Chrisley is an
eleven.” A disappointing marriage Although Lindsie might seem like a goody two-shoes,
she hasn’t always lived life on the straight and narrow. In fact, Lindsie married her boyfriend, Will
Campbell, behind her dad’s back. Campbell didn’t even bother to reach out to
Todd before eloping with Lindsie in January 2012. As one might expect, the hush-hush nuptials
didn’t sit well with Todd, who prides himself on his parenting. He told E! News, “I had a problem with the way the marriage
started. Not just on Will’s side but on my daughter’s
side as well.” Todd continued, “A father has his dreams when he has a child,
you know, a young man is going to come and knock on the door one day and say, ‘Mr. Chrisley,
I love your daughter so much and may I have her hand in marriage?'” Todd says that never happened. Trouble after baby It’s not uncommon for couples to struggle
in their relationship following the birth of a child, something Lindsie is all too familiar
with. In a brief essay about parenting for TODAY,
Lindsie admitted to “neglecting” her marriage after Jackson was born in 2013. She revealed, “I feel like for a while your marriage changes,
for me at least. I fell so in love with Jackson that I almost
neglected my marriage in a way. Not on purpose, but out of the newness in
our schedule, and us making Jackson our first priority.” “You know when Mommy was little Poppa never
let her jump on the bed.” “Why?” “Well because I thought it was heathens that
did that.” Interestingly enough, the couple also argued
a lot about Jackson’s eating habits. Lindsie shared, “One element of our lifestyle that I refuse
to budge on at all is diet. Almost everything that Jackson eats is organic.…I’ve
been in many arguments with his daddy over this.” An on-and-off marriage Lindsie filed for divorce from Will in August
2016, saying they had grown apart. “Things weren’t working out with Will and
I, so we decided to separate. We both still really love each other but we
felt like the best thing to do was figure ourselves out.” Lindsie said in a statement to People at the
time: “He was my first love. We got together when we were 19 years old,
and over time we grew separately in different directions instead of together.…I just don’t
feel that relationship gives me what I need anymore. I’ve outgrown the relationship.” Lindsie went on to emphasize the two would
remain friends for their son, Jackson, and she vowed to love Will forever. And it turns out Lindsie wasn’t lying about
that last part! She reconciled with Will in January 2018. A friend revealed to Radar Online, “When it came time for mediation for their
divorce the two of them cancelled it, twice. That’s when they realized that they were still
meant to be together, and she withdrew the divorce papers this past summer.” These days, the two are stronger than ever. An insider told the site, “They have worked out their issues and live
together with their son outside of Atlanta. They are best friends and love each other
very, very much. Anyone who knows them knows this.” Calling it quits on the show When Lindsie left Chrisley Knows Best at the
end of season 5, there was a lot of speculation about why she peaced out on the big paychecks
and free publicity. “Parents who hover create kids that have to
be sneaky and do things behind their parents back.” “But darlin’, sneak is in y’alls’ DNA.” Although it’s fair to assume Lindsie’s decision
was motivated by filming logistics, since she lives in Georgia while the series is filmed
in Nashville, Tennessee, a production insider claims the blame lands squarely on Todd. “And now we’re gonna have nothing but quality
family time.” “Yeah, who wants to do that?” Apparently, Todd was dead set on using Lindsie’s
divorce as a plot device in the show, something she didn’t appreciate. The source alleged to Radar Online, “Todd used Lindsie’s heartache for a storyline,
and he did not care either way how she felt about it…In the end it ruined his relationship
with his daughter.” Lindsie probably wouldn’t want her son to
witness her marital strife unfold on national television, and she’s a pretty private person
overall. But the most compelling piece of evidence
might be Lindsie’s social media accounts, where it appears she’s scrubbed any evidence
that she once starred on Chrisley Knows Best. We don’t know about you, but we smell some
burnt bridges. Setting her priorities straight Out of all the Chrisley children, Lindsie
is arguably the most grounded of them all. Just ask Lindsie’s biological mother, Teresa
Terry, who doesn’t think Todd’s money and fame will change her daughter in the long
run. “The people that help in this house the most
is the ones that’s gonna benefit when I’m rotting in the ground.” “You’ve been saying that my whole life. And you’re still here.” Teresa told the Daily Mail, “I think Lindsie will always be okay, she’s
got a good head on her.” But if you want further proof Lindsie isn’t
easily swayed by her family’s recent riches, just take a look at her life post-Chrisley
Knows Best. Instead of securing a spin-off show or some
other high-profile project, Lindsie opted to start the parenting-centric podcast Coffee
Convos with Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry. “This is our podcast laundry basket if anybody’s
wondering.” “Zoom in nice and tight.” The venture is almost completely behind-the-scenes
for Lindsie, and it allows her to spend plenty of time with her son, Jackson. Of course, it’s always possible Lindsie will
find her way back to the limelight one day. Fame can be tempting, after all. The reality off-camera In the early seasons of Chrisley Knows Best,
Todd made it his mission to present a strong and loving family unit for viewers. But the truth is, the Chrisleys are far from
perfect, especially when it comes to Julie’s relationship with Lindsie. “Crazy does not begin to describe the Chrisley
family. Our family’s not normal.” A perfect example of this is when Julie snubbed
Lindsie and her younger brother, Kyle, on Father’s Day 2018, a slight that didn’t go
unnoticed by fans. To sum up the drama, Julie posted a sweet
Father’s Day message on Instagram featuring pictures of Todd with her biological children:
Chase, Grayson, and Savannah. She captioned it: “Happy Fathers Day to you Todd Chrisley. From the first day I met you, you made it
clear to me that you were a father first and foremost, and I respected you then and sooo
much more today. Thank you for being an amazing father to our
children.” Although the post might seem innocent and
sweet on the surface, it’s a bit strange Julie didn’t think to include Lindsie or Kyle. Plus, let’s not forget Julie adopted Lindsie
years before that particular Father’s Day. An insider dished to Radar Online about the
odd situation, saying, “All she ever really wanted was her perfect
family with Todd, Savannah, Chase, and Grayson. She pushed Lindsie away and she also was a
big reason why Kyle left the show in the beginning.” Trouble with her brother Some fans might remember Kyle, Todd’s eldest
son, as being a bit troubled on the show. “You are a walking ad for why not to use drugs.” In the first season of Chrisley Knows Best,
Kyle’s drug addiction issues came to light, and he eventually was fired from the show
following a big fight with Todd in 2013. Todd, who claims Kyle is bipolar, said of
the blow-up in an interview with E! News: “I didn’t kick Kyle off the show. He refused to take his medication. He was hostile to the crew. He was hostile to other people on the show
and you can’t have that.” Kyle countered his father’s claims by labeling
him a “snake” in a sit-down with the Daily Mail, saying, “My dad is all about control. He’s vindictive and manipulative. He’s a snake, and if there’s a snake in
the grass, you don’t know, but hell, it’ll bite you when you go by.” Unfortunately, it sounds like the fight trickled
down into Kyle’s other relationships because he doesn’t talk to anyone in his family anymore,
including Lindsie. He explained to Radar Online, “I do not talk to my family but I wish them
nothing but the best. I have moved on with my life. I am just going to be the best father and
husband that I can be.” Fingers crossed these siblings can reconnect
one day, and get to know each other once again.

I love Todd Chrisley because he is a real father and husband who loves his children but takes no mess from them! There should be more shows like this.

Kyle doesn't talk to his family but he's letting his father raise Chole? Meaning… he doesn't have a relationship with his his daughter. So, how can he be the best father if his daughter doesn't even know him.

It's sad because some stepmother hate it when the father has a good relationship with their first borns smh it's ridiculous… just because lindsie and Kyle aren't her kids she pushes them away because she just wants it to be her and Todd and her kids ONLY And it's sad because I know all to well how his first 2 kids feel. And he is the type where he will always choose his wife and their kids over his first 2 kids

I’ve continued to watch the show, even though I have always despised how controlling Todd Christley is. I sometimes wondered if it was exaggerated for dramatic effect but after seeing this clip I guess it wasn’t.

There is no one family that is perfect. We dont know what took place between Kyle and Lindsey and their parents, but I dont think its necessary to air family laundry for the whole world to see.

I believe Linsie is a negative person. She ran off and got married. To a loser. Got pregnant. Her father raised her better than that. She saw the way Todd lives how he keeps his family together. I think she is very vindictive and very jealous of her father . And his new family.
