After being considered the "catalyst" to their conviction, Todd and Julie Chrisley have cut major ties with their eldest daughter Lindsie. But she's not shy to share her truth about her family.

Fans of Chrisley Knows Best probably noticed Lindsie's abrupt exit in 2017, but many probably weren't aware that her choice to quit meant not only leaving the popular reality show, but also pausing her relationship with her parents.

The 32-year-old isn't a stranger to being candid on social media (which Todd has since blocked her on). In April, she wrote "Reality tv. Media storms. Podcasts. Family feuds. Divorce. Legal battles. All things that I have navigated over the last few years. I’ve kept quiet for the most part & tried to allow the storms to pass. As I have tried to move forward in my life, I am constantly hit with Google alerts — living in fear, anxious & tired."

And most recently, during her podcast Coffee Convos, Lindsie got brutally honest about her parents' recent conviction. "I think it's fair to say that there is public interest in what's going on behind the scenes," she began. "Reconciliation, if that's ever a possibility. Possible returns to Chrisley Knows Best, working on projects together. All of those things. It would be naive to say that that's not of interest because we publicly live our lives."

Previously, Lindsie felt pressured to tell the public that there would be a reconciliation to restore her and her parents' relationship. But on her podcast, she admitted that "the pressure of media — and not all media — but certain media pressuring to tell the world about a reconciliation that they have no idea about or the intricacies of that, is very reckless and very harmful."

After hearing the conviction, Lindsie was very candid about how the verdict shocked and saddened her. And on June 23, she did an interview with People, and wanted to make sure people heard this important message: "I will also go on record today and say that I love my parents, I love my siblings, I love my grandmother. And what is the future of our relationships at this point, I'm currently not going to discuss any more than that, other than the fact that I love them and I stand with them. And I will continue to stand with them through the good, the bad and the ugly."

Todd and Julie currently face the possibility of serving up to 30 years in prison after being found guilty of tax evasion and fraud.
