Todd Chrisley, the reality TV star whose family has been embroiled in an ongoing legal drama, believes that the truth will eventually rise.
The USA Network series Chrisley Knows Best was canceled after it came to light that Todd and his family had allegedly committed tax fraud. The network also canceled its spinoff show, Southern Charm: Savannah.
In February 2019, USA Network dropped all references to the show from its website and social media channels. It remains unclear if there will be any new seasons for either series in the future. “We have faith that truth is going to come out,” the former USA Network reality show star, 51, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive joint interview with his wife Julie.
The couple was arrested on Tuesday morning in their hometown of Greenville for allegedly defrauding more than $200,000 in taxes over a four-year period from 2010-2014. They were released on bail later that day and are due back in court on June 3rd.
The charges against them include conspiracy to defraud the United States government and aiding or assisting others in doing so as well as making false statements regarding income tax returns they filed together during that time span.
Todd Chrisley Wants Truth To Win
Chrisley Knows Best was renewed for a seventh season by USA Network in February, just before Todd and Julie were indicted on tax evasion and other federal charges. The network has not released a statement about whether the show will continue without its stars or if it will be cancelled.
In the meantime, Todd Chrisley and Julie remain in prison awaiting trial. If convicted, they could face up to five years each behind bars—but they’re also still making money from their hit TV show while they’re incarcerated!
Todd says he believes this entire ordeal is retribution against him for being “too outspoken” about his Christian values.
“I am a Christian,” Todd Chrisleysaid in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE. “I have always been vocal about my faith, and I’m not ashamed of it.”
The Chrisley Knows Best star opened up about how he believes the arrest was motivated by his religion and politics as well as other factors that were sparked by his outspokenness on both issues.
