Todd Chrisley says family drama with estranged daughter Lindsie was sparked by her jealousy over sister Savannah’s popularity
Todd Chrisley, of reality TV show Chrisley Knows Best, spoke out about his relationship with estranged daughter Lindsie Chrisley.
He shared his thoughts in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight on Monday.
The father of five says the family drama was started by jealousy, due to his daughter Lindsie having a smaller social media following than one of her sibling’s.

‘It started out with Savannah having way more social media followers, and then [she] wasn’t getting enough time on the show,’ Todd said in the candid conversation.
Lindsie, 31, left the show in 2017.
To put things into perspective, her younger sister Savannah, 23, currently has 2.2 million followers on the site, a sore spot for Lindsie, according to their dad. Lindsie has just over 600K Instagram followers.
Despite the ongoing rift between Lindsie and her family, the others remain close.
Younger brother Kyle Chrisley, 30, gave their dad a shout out back in July for no particular reason. ‘I love you so much and I will forever be grateful for your love and grace,’ he said in his heartfelt caption.

Meanwhile, Savannah happily posted on Instagram on Tuesday in anticipation of her 24th birthday.
‘The face of a girl whose birthday is TOMORROW!!’ she wrote.
In the midst of the family conflict there’s been a lot of he said-she-said. In 2019 the patriarch accused his oldest daughter of being unfaithful to her then-husband.
Later, the mother-of-one alleged that her father was going to release a sex tape involving her, a claim he denies.
At the end of July Todd’s firstborn announced her split from husband Will Campbell after nine years of marriage.
‘We maintain the greatest respect & love for one another,’ she told her 614,000 Instagram followers.
Todd and Julie Chrisley, both 48, are currently facing a 12-count federal indictment.
