LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Todd Chrisley’s bankruptcy case is still pending. LALATE can exclusively report that, in the related lawsuit filed by Todd Chrisley’s bankruptcy trustee again Julie Chrisley, that dispute is now heading mediation. Todd’s trustee sued Julie Chrisley for multiple civil counts including allegations of Avoidance of Fraudulent Transfers. Julie disputed the same.
Todd Chrisley has delivered an exceptionally entertaining second season of Chrisley Knows Best this fall. The show is funny, cheerful, and just a wonderful show to watch. But Todd Chrisley, off camera, is delivering more falsehoods to news this month about his bankruptcy. Rather than just avoid discussion of his bankruptcy altogether, Todd chose to discuss his case again.
When asked by PEOPLE about his bankruptcy case, Todd told the magazine that the bankruptcy case is “truly in its final phases … we’ve moved on from it”. Nothing could be further from the truth. The parties have not “moved on” from Todd’s bankruptcy, and neither has Todd nor Julie. The case is active. And in documents obtained exclusively by LALATE today, Honorable Mary Grace Diehl just today ordered Julie and Todd’s trustee to mediation.
Of Todd and Julie, the trustee claims, and Julie denies, that “neither Debtor [Todd] nor the Defendant [Julie] has been employed since CAM closed in 2012. However, they continue to live in lavish residences, drive expensive vehicles and travel extensively. Their lifestyle is the subject of … Chrisley Knows Best.” Todd’s trustee also claims that “In 2010, Debtor’s largest creditor, RES-GA Buckhead, LLC, filed suit against him on his personal guaranty for approximately $14 million in debt. Pursuant to the Debtor’s Statement of Financial Affairs, paragraph 4, Debtor was a defendant in at least six other collection suits initiated in 2010 or 2011for an aggregate of approximately $20 million in additional debt.” Todd and Julie have not “moved on from” his bankruptcy case. Rather she heads into mediation in the coming weeks while his case remains pending.
