These are difficult times for the Chrisleys. The reality TV stars have been grabbing headlines this month for their legal troubles and some personal family drama.

However, they can take some comfort in knowing that Tamra Judge will always have their backs. "I love Todd and Julie, and my heart is absolutely broken for them," Tamra said during a recent interview with ET. "They're going to get through this. They're leaning on the Lord, big time. I know the backstory, so you know, they're innocent in all this."

Todd Chrisley and his wife Julie Chrisley received a 12-count indictment from a grand jury that included tax evasion, bank fraud, and wire fraud conspiracy, among other charges, earlier this month. The Chrisleys later pleaded not guilty to the indictment.

"The truth always comes out. You know, they're going through a court case, so... it's tough. I mean, there's not too much I can say, but... They're hanging in there," Tamra continued in her interview with ET. "It's been definitely hard."

Tamra also shared that Todd has asked her to pray for him, which she "absolutely" has been doing. "I can tell he's having a hard time. But, on the flipside, he knows that he didn't do anything wrong," she said. "So, he knows the truth will come out."

Todd has repeatedly denied the allegations against him and his wife. “The allegations contained in the indictment are based on complete falsehoods," his attorneys Bruce H. Morris and Stephen Friedberg said in a statement to PEOPLE following the indictment. "The Chrisleys are innocent of all charges."

Tamra and Todd have long shown support for one another in their times of need. In fact, Tamra shared on Instagram in 2017 that she often turns to Todd for some guidance. "I love this guy. When we met I knew instantly we would be friends for life. His good looks, perfect smile, charm, sarcastic mouth, love for God and his family [shines] bright," she wrote. "What I didn't know was how his kind heart and advice would lift me up when I wanted to fall down. Thank you Todd. You truly know what's best!"
