Court Documents Confirm Julie Chrisley Once Assaulted Lindsie

Chrisley Knows Best, News, Reality TV

For a long time, there had been a rumor that the real reason Lindsie Chrisley left Chrisley Knows Best was because her father’s new wife Julie assaulted her. Now, the estrangement caused Lindie to be the black sheep of the family. For the most part, fans of the reality TV family divided and picked a side. Because Todd was on television still and in a much brighter spotlight than his daughter, most people sided with him and his version of the stories.

Sadly, court documents from Todd and Julie’s recent convicting and sentencing confirm Lindsie’s version of the story was very much the truth. Julie Chrisley assaulted her stepdaughter Lindsie in front of a bunch of witnesses. Per the court documents, she reportedly assaulted Lindsie in front of a production crew. And, the incident also happened in front of Todd.

How did Julie Chrisley manage to assault Lindsie in front of a bunch of witnesses and get away with it? Why didn’t Lindsie press charges against her stepmother? The court documents tell the full story. Keep reading for a summary of the court documents.

Julie Chrisley once assaulted Lindsie

Per Sentencing Exhibit #14 (on pages 2 and 3), fans learn that 2017 was the year that Lindsie Chrisley (then referred to as Lindsie Campbell) stopped filming Chrisley Knows Best. According to Lindsie, she believed her last day filming (or the day behind) was when the IRS seized a storage unit belonging to her father Todd. Lindsie speculates her stepmother Julie was likely upset about the storage unit the day she assaulted her.

According to the court documents, Julie became upset at Lindsie Chrisley for reading Chloe a bedtime story. Julie Chrisley reportedly invaded Lindsie’s space (got in her face), grabbed her neck, and slapped her. Per the documents, Lindsie Chrisley was slapped by Julie in front of a filming crew and her father Todd.

Embarrassed by what happened, Lindsie informed her father she could have Julie arrested for assaulting her before leaving. Lindsie Chrisley later had an anxiety attack over what happened.

Why didn’t Lindsie Chrisley send her stepmother to jail?

The biggest question fans have is simple: If this really happened, why didn’t Lindsie press charges against Julie Chrisley? Turns out, she did not file a police report. Instead, she hired an attorney to handle the situation. Lindsie later learned Todd (and the media company) also hired an attorney. Furthermore, they hired an investigator. Julie Chrisley reportedly flipped the story when recalling it to the investigator claiming that Lindsie was the aggressor in the situation.

Making things worse, everyone who saw the incident was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Sadly, Lindsie Chrisley’s attorney informed her that filing a lawsuit was a waste of time because everyone would support Julie’s version of the story out of fear of losing their job.

Moreover, fans were flabbergasted by the fact that Lindsie has somehow forgiven her parents and let them back into her life. Some fans speculate Todd likely threatened Lindsie (again) to play nice because of the ongoing legal battle.

  1. I love this family so much so I turned my whole family on to the show. However I just started watching from the beginning, so many things I missed. The way they treat Chase really was degusting yet whenever things went south they depended on Chase to fix! Todd spoke to and about all hid kids terrible, he was always so bothered by them. Julie was his his puppet doing whatever he told her even when she expressed she didn’t agree. It then turned out that she also turned judgemental and mean. She started acting so above the ppl around her including her friends Allison and Lee talking about she is against mothers going out it’s not a good look. . . NEWSFLASH, EITHER IS GOING TO JAIL! She openly took jabs at Lindsey and wether this story is true or not, Julie is far from the perfect person she tries to protray!!!
