Robby Hayes has confirmed that he once made a sex tape with Lindsie Chrisley.
Kind of. Sort of.
By this exact definition, yes, absolutely.
But the details are a tad bit confusing...
The former Bachelorette suitor actually addressed this topic on the “Housewives and Vanderpump” podcast yesterday because the celebrity gossip world is abuzz with chatter over he and Lindsie's past.
For what random/shady/stunning reason?
Well: Todd and Julie Chrisley, the stars of USA Network's Chrisley Knows Best, were indicted last week on multiple counts of tax evasion.
They have pleaded not guilty, but stand accused of lying to the government about their income, of hiding money from the authorities and of falsifying bank documents.
Todd, in a lengthy defense shared on Instagram, has said that a bitter ex-employee set him and his wife up.
But this isn't all he's said...
In response to estranged daughter Lindsie stating that she's been "harassed" and "threatened" over the years by family members, and in response to reports that Todd has been blackmailing his own child with the the release of her sex tape, the reality star has lashed out.
He's tried to say that he still loves and cherishes Lindsie...
... WHILE ALSO PUBLICLY ACCUSING HER OF SLEEPING WITH TWO MEN FROM BACHELOR NATION.
Really, this is the statement Todd released in response to the above extortion accusation:
We have tried to keep Lindsie's extramarital relationships with [Bachelor Nation stars] Robby Hayes and Josh Murray private for her sake since August of 2016.
Sadly, for reasons we can only guess at, she ran to the sheriff's office to accuse her brother of buying a sex tape of her and Robby, which was a complete lie, and now she's telling more lies about me
Although our hearts are broken, Lindsie is our daughter and we will always love her.
So... this brings us all back to Hayes.
Can her at leasy verify that he slept with Lindsie Chrisley? And that it's on video somewhere?
Yes, he can.
"We did not make a sex tape,” the Bachelorette said on Wednesday's podcast, prior to clarifying:
“I’m not sitting there with a camera aimed down and trying to get the angles.
"Like, we got caught on the security camera, basically. It was a puppy camera in her friend’s living room, the couch we crashed on."
Okay, but, wait... WHAT?!?
Hayes is confirming that he and Chrisley had sex on a friend's sofa? And that a camera in the apartment captured the red hot action?
And... somehow it now seems that this footage is floating around out there, presumably in the hands of Lindsie's brother and father? This story is wild, you guys.
“We’re in the middle of dealing with it,” Hayes added. “I was just talking with [Lindsie] this past weekend in Atlanta, two days ago.”
Here's the thing, too. This story actually gets even more wild...
In June of 2017 (the same month Lindsie reportedly left Chrisley Knows Best), Lindsie’s sister, Savannah, Tweeted a reference to someone having an affair.
“Soo funny! Come after me…I really don’t care…come after my mama…you’re OVER!!” Savannah wrote on June 29, 2017. “Watch what u tell when your bed isn’t clean…#literally.
Todd (who, again, is LINDSIE'S FATHER) then added:
“Especially since there’s been more men in your bed than your husband has spent time there, #2batchelors #inlaws #vidoes #photos #letsdothis."
A few months later, Todd Tweeted about someone who “cheated twice.”
“Sometimes those that lie need 2 be exposed in order 2 stop the madness. #cheatedtwice #thxgodforpuppycams #JAMRH #suemeoverthetruth #psycho,” he wrote in September of 2017.
And would you look at that:
It's a reference to a puppy cam, just as Hayes described above.
This seems worth mentioning one more time:
TODD IS LINDSIE'S FATHER AND HE IS CONSTANTLY TWEETING ABOUT HER EXTRAMARITAL AFFAIRS AND QUASI SEX TAPES.
Making things extra incredible and Todd extra horrible?
He just said the following this week to People Magazine:
“As I’ve said before, it’s heartbreaking that Lindsie feels the need to air her private issues in public. But whatever she says, she is still my daughter and Chase and Savannah’s sister.
"We have always loved her, we will always love her, and we are here for her."
Seriously, right? Who would ever air very private issues in public, Todd?
