“Chrisley Knows Best” stars Todd and Julie Chrisley have been indicted on federal fraud and tax evasion charges, U.S. Attorney’s Office announced on Tuesday.
The Chrisleys and their accountant, Peter Tarantino, were reportedly charged in Georgia’s Northern District with conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax evasion.
A rep for the Chrisleys told Fox News: “Nothing has happened yet that we’re aware of.” An attorney for the Chrisleys did not immediately return a request for comment.
On Monday night, Todd, 50, posted a lengthy Instagram note telling fans that an upcoming indictment was due to a disgruntled former employee stealing from his family and trying to retaliate against them after he was fired in 2012.
The star wrote that he wouldn’t go into detail, but said the former employee’s alleged crimes included “all kinds of really bad stuff like creating phony documents, forging our signatures, and threatening other employees with violence if they said anything.”
