Lindsie Chrisley Prays For Better Days
During her Instagram story question and answer session, Chrisley fielded several questions from fans about her personal life. The “Chrisley Knows Best” reality star responded to a particular question asking her how she managed to stay “happy despite all the negative news” that kept coming to her.
Her response was, “I don’t have anything truly figured out. I pray for the day that I can wake up + everything feels light + ok again. Until then, I focus on things I can control. My relationship with God, my son, my girlfriends, and work.
The 32-year-old continued, “It’s hard to not listen to noise, but when you walk in your truth, it’s not quite as loud.” With her parent’s recent legal drama, her strained relationship with them, and still recent divorce, it’s no surprise that her fans are worried about her.
Todd And Julie Chrisley Were Convicted
On June 7th, Todd and Julie, Chrisley’s parents, were found guilty of charges of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the US, and tax fraud. Julie was also found guilty of a separate charge of wire fraud. The couple is awaiting sentencing but could be sentenced to as high as 30 years in prison.
The Chrisleys are yet to make any public statement about their conviction, but their lawyer Bruce Morris told People that the couple is extremely “disappointed in the court’s verdict” and will certainly file an appeal.
The Chrisleys were accused of forging false documents to help them secure a total of $30 million in several bank loans. The money was used to pay for their expensive lifestyles, and when the payments became due, they filed for bankruptcy to avoid paying.
She Has Been Estranged From Them
Chrisley herself has a strained relationship with her parents and has been estranged from them for a while. When the news of their conviction broke, the “Coffee Convos” podcaster released a short statement on her Instagram story saying the ruling “deeply saddened” her.
The post read, “I know most of you are expecting to hear from me on my podcasts this week as I took time to be with my family last week. The verdict is not what I had hoped or prayed for, and I am deeply saddened for myself, my son and my family as a whole. Please pray for us during this difficult time and know that I will be back when the time is right. Thank you for your continued love and support.”
During her question and answer session, she also spoke about her relationship with her parents, addressing whether the family has reconciled. She wrote, “Covering more details on this with my attorney this week on @coffeeconvospodcast. I think it’s time to speak, our truth + not what people assume from social media + bum reporting.”

I’ve moved on in my life + happy where I am at!” She also clarified that she is not dating anyone right now, despite all the rumors of her dating Josh Murray and Robbie Hayes.
