Kyle Chrisley took to Facebook on Wednesday, shortly before his parents appeared before a federal judge in Atlanta to plead not guilty to bank fraud and tax evasion charges.
Kyle also addressed the comments he made about his father in the past, and how he was able to get “forgiveness” from the star for his misdoings.
“I’ve seen all the stories about my dad’s indictment allover the internet. I know the interview I did bashing my dad OVER A YEAR AGO is being shared on social media. Honestly I’m tired of it. You guys don’t have the facts and I need to set the record straight once and for all,” he wrote.
Kyle says that the interview he gave “was all lies,” and that, “About a year and a half ago my biological mom and my sister, Lindsie were responsible for turning my dad in to the Georgia department of revenue for tax evasion.”
Kyle explains that he was battling through drug addiction, and that his biological mother and sister used that to their advantage to turn him against his father.
Now he claims to have seen the light, and realizes that, “My mom and dad raised me. I haven’t been the best dad to Chloe, I’ve had a problem with drugs, I’be [sic] acted completely ridiculous and through all that they have stood by my side.”
He also claims to be sober and working.
Kyle writes that, “9 months ago I went to my dad with an apology. His words were ‘I love you always, and you are forgiven.’
The estranged son’s words seem to differ from his cryptic message the other day, when he shared a meme that read, “Never question who God removed from your life. He heard the conversations when you weren’t around.”
Now it seems the message was directed at his biological mother and Lindsie, as he’s clearly backing Todd and Julie in the investigation.
He feels responsible for the indictment against the “Chrisley Knows Best” stars, and writes that, “The guilt that I carry knowing that I could have played a role in this is indescribable. I can’t take it back so I’m telling you now, with a clear mind, my mom and dad have done nothing wrong!”
Kyle is adamant that, “I will continue to stand as a united front alongside my mom, my dad, and the rest of my family.”
He hopes that, “that my sister Lindsie will seek the same forgiveness from my daddy as I have, that he is able to forgive her, and that my family will one day be whole again.”
