Todd Chrisley says he forgives estranged daughter Lindsie, calls out children for 'greed'

Todd Chrisley is trying to make amends with his estranged daughter, Lindsie Chrisley.

The "Chrisley Knows Best" reality star said he has unconditional love for his daughter, adding it's "heartbreaking" that "the feelings that I have had for her her entire life are not reciprocal."

"She will always be my daughter, that will never change," Chrisley said on Wednesday's episode of "Chrisley Confessions," his podcast with wife Julie. "(Lindsie) is my first-born child, and she is loved, and this is her moment for her to say whatever she wants to say, regardless of whether or not it’s true or not. She is forgiven."

Last week, Todd and Julie Chrisley pleaded not guilty to tax evasion and other fraud charges that their lawyers said stemmed from false allegations made by a former employee. (Lindsie denied alerting authorities about her father's alleged crimes.)

The family's legal drama didn't end there. Lindsie, 29, accused her father and brother Chase of blackmailing her with her sex tape soon after. Chrisley called the claims a "complete lie."

"(Lindsie) is forgiven for what’s happened in the last week to 10 days," Chrisley added Wednesday. "She is forgiven for what has happened in this investigation that she has contributed to. She’s forgiven for what she’s gonna do today and tomorrow."

Chrisley said he's ashamed that his children have let these hardships divide them.

"It is a shame that I have raised five children, and that the jealousy and the greed and the backstabbing that has been exhibited towards a sibling is unconscionable," the real estate guru said. "They’re going to be ashamed when something happens to each of them and then you can’t turn around say, 'I'm sorry,' because it’s too late."

He continued: "I love all of my children."

Lindsie accused Chrisley and Chase of extortion, claiming they "wanted her to lie about an incident and if she refused to do so, they were going to release the sex tape involving her," according to a police report obtained by E! News.

Robby Hayes – a star from the "Bachelor" franchise, who Chrisley said had an "extramarital relationship" with Lindsie – broke his silence Wednesday.

"We did not make a sex tape," Hayes said on the "Bleav in Housewives and Vanderpump" podcast. "I'm not sitting there with a camera aimed down and trying to get the angles. Like, we got caught on the security camera, basically. It was a puppy camera in her friend's living room, the couch we crashed on. So no consent from either end, which kind of debunks the whole thing."

He added: "We're in the middle of dealing with it."
