Todd Chrisley's formerly estranged son speaks out on family scandal: 'You guys don't have the facts'

Kyle Chrisley is standing by his father.

Todd Chrisley's previously estranged son took to Facebook on Wednesday to defend him following his indictment on multiple financial crimes, as well as allegations that he extorted his own daughter using an alleged sex tape.

"I've seen the stories about my dad's indictment all over the internet. I know the interview I did bashing my dad OVER A YEAR AGO is being shared on social media," he wrote of a 2017 "Good Morning America" interview he did. "Honestly, I'm tired of it. You guys don't have the facts and I need to set the record straight once and for all. Everything I said in my interview was a lie. These allegations against my dad are all LIES!"

He then went on to place blame for his father's indictment on his older sister, who has since denied being involved in reporting Todd for tax evasion and bank fraud.

"About a year and a half ago my biological mom and my sister, Lindsie were responsible for turning my dad in to the Georgia department of revenue for tax evasion," he went on. "My relationship with my dad was really rocky at the time and that was used to their advantage."

Kyle added that he helped allegedly "lie" for them because he "was battling drug addition and I felt like he was trying to control me."

"I should have said NO!" he continued. "9 months ago I went to my dad with an apology. His words were, 'I love you always, and you are forgiven.' And just like that I was welcomed back into his life with open arms. I will be forever grateful for his love [and] graciousness."

The 27-year-old former reality star went on to express his guilt for any involvement he had in reporting his parents to the government and proclaimed their innocence.

"The guilt that I carry knowing that I could have played a role in this is indescribable. I can't take it back so I'm telling you now, with a clear mind, my mom and dad have done nothing wrong!" he sad. "Today, I am sober. I am working, and I am at a good place in my life. I just want to fix what I've done wrong so that I am able to forgive myself. I will continue to stand as a united front alongside my mom, my dad, and the rest of my family."

Kyle finished his post by urging his older sister, who is still estranged from her family and maintains that she was harassed and threatened by her father and brother, Chase, to reach an understanding with the rest of the family.

"My hope is that my sister Lindsie will seek the same forgiveness from my daddy as I have, that he is able to forgive her and that my family will one day be whole again," he concluded.

Todd and Julie Chrisley were charged with 12 counts of tax evasion and bank fraud on Tuesday. On Wednesday, they turned themselves in, pleaded not guilty and were subsequently released on $100,000 bond
