Lindsie Chrisley opens up about her complicated relationship with her estranged family and explains why she can never reconcile with them while also yelling at her father, Todd Chrisley.
That Chrisley knows best Alum’s relationship with her family has made headlines since she walked away from the popular show in 2017. Although things had apparently calmed down a bit, the drama began again after she announced her divorce from her husband Will Campbell in July.
If fans remember, after her announcement, Todd shared a message of support for Lindsie via Instagram and subsequently told her podcast listeners that he was praying for his 31-year-old daughter and her young son, Jackson. When Lindsie was asked if she had listened to Todd’s podcast in a new interview, she said she took his word for it because he had not reached her privately.
“Through therapy over the last year, I had just been advised by my therapist not to tune in, not follow on social media, things that were posted because it triggered me,” she told Entertainment Tonight on the 2nd. September. “So I try to distance myself from it as much as possible. However, I was told many things that have been said. And it’s hard not to want to react to these things. Because some of the things that have been said, either they are categorically false, or maybe the intentions I do not feel are pure. ”
Last month, Todd told ET that he found out about Lindsie’s divorce through a text message and shared that he had not contacted her because of their previous legal issues. As a result, Lindsie questioned why her father feels he can talk about her in public if he has neglected to talk to her in private, which she has allegedly tried to make happen.
“Well, you feel comfortable talking about me in public,” she said. “So I feel it would be in the best interest of everyone to be able to sit down and bring everything to the table and say, ‘That’s it,’ and let the pieces fall where they might. I have extended that courtesy several times and have never been taken up by it. So I think that speaks volumes. ”
Still, even though the family met face to face to put their beef to bed, Lindsie insisted that she and her family would never reconcile or be the same again.
“There will never be a reconciliation,” she declared. “I think the most thing anyone can ask for at this point is that everyone should continue their life as they see fit and just leave the other side alone. But at this point, there is no chance of reconciliation. And unfortunately, I will continue to respond to all the allegations made. ”
She admitted that she sometimes misses her family, but to protect her sanity, she must distance herself from that non-stop drama.
“I feel that it is much healthier for me to be where I am. I need to protect my peace and I do not want to be a drug in drama all the time, ”she explained. “And unfortunately, I have been the person that drama always surrounds because I am not a part of them, you know? And then I’m the outsider looking in. And then I am always the target. ”
As for Todd’s comment that Lindsie is jealous of her younger siblings because of their big Instagram followers, she insisted that it could not be further from the truth as it was she who chose to walk away to live a normal life.
“What is there to be envious of? I moved away from something that I felt was toxic and not in my best interest and created my own path, ”she claimed. “I am educated. I have my own home. I have a beautiful child. I have a good life. I have a life outside of the public that I really appreciate. And there is nothing to be jealous of because they are on a reality TV show? I’m not jealous of anyone who’s on reality TV. ”
Nevertheless, Lindsie had a message for Todd and the rest of her famous family.
“Leave me alone. Let me live my life,” she demanded.
