The hits just keep coming for Todd and Julie Chrisley, and not in a good way.
In case you missed it, the reality stars from USA Network’s Chrisley Knows Best have been sentenced to prison time after being found guilty of bank fraud. More specifically, Todd Chrisley was sentenced to 12 years for bank fraud and tax evasion. His wife Julie was sentenced to seven years for her involvement as well.
All of this is sure to cost the couple more than just time behind bars. It will also cost them lots of money — as they will also have to let go of their two properties in Nashville, worth a combined $9 million, after being ordered by the court to pay $17.2 million in restitution.
Yeah, Good Luck With All That.
“They’re going to have to give up a lot of things, including their homes, sadly. They won’t be able to afford it,” a source told the New York Post.
Apparently, the more popular the Chrisleys became, the more they began to spend. That’s often how it works, it’s just that they were funding their lifestyles via illegal methods, according to the courts.
Per the Post:
“In 2016, when the couple first moved to Music City, they purchased a Belle Meade four-bedroom home for $1.6 million. That property, which spans more than 5,200 square feet, is worth an estimated $2.88 million today, according to Zillow.”
That said, some episodes of Chrisley Knows Best have yet to air, as USA re-upped the program for a 10th season. Any episode that has already been filmed will indeed air, Deadline added. Those are set for 2023.
