The past week has been quite the roller coaster ride when it comes to the developments in the Chrisley family and their ongoing legal woes. After Todd Chrisley and wife Julie Chrisley were indicted for tax evasion and other financial crimes, the skeletons in the family closet began to come out. One of the most shocking twists was the report that Todd and his son, Chase Chrisley, attempted to extort his estranged daughter, Lindsie Christie (from a previous relationship), over an alleged sex tape and alleged past affairs with Bachelor Nation stars Robby Hayes and Josh Murray. The extortion attempt may have been tied to a request to get her to lie in connection with his alleged financial crimes.
In a new statement to PEOPLE from over the weekend, Lindsie confirmed that she and her father have not seen one another “for a while,” before sharing whether she'd be willing to reconcile with him in the wake of their family drama.
“Lindsie never had a sincere gesture from her father,” her attorney, Musa Ghanayem, said. “We don’t even know how to react if she was given a sincere opportunity to reunite.”
In another statement to E! News, Lindsie's attorney attempted to shed more light on her client's current state of mind regarding her father.
"Its always been her wish to reconcile on a genuine, loving, human level, not on a superficial business level, or a phony type of affection that has no depth of to it," Lindsie's attorney told E! News over the weekend. "This is not a TV show, she doesn't want to be a member of the cast, she wants to be a member of the family. If she received a genuine, human, heartfelt invitation to reconnect she would be open to do so, but that has not happened."
In response to Lindsie's most recent comments regarding her relationship with her father, Todd gave the same statement to both PEOPLE and E! News: "As I've said all along, Lindsie is my daughter and I love her, and that's not going to change."
Last week, Todd and Julie pleaded not guilty in court to a 12-count indictment on August 14; he has denied any wrongdoing in that matter.
