Things just keep getting worse for Todd Chrisley and family.

Chrisley pled not guilty and is currently gearing up for the legal battle of his lifetime.

Meanwhile, all around him, his personal life is crumbling as fans learn that the wholesome domestic life Chrisley presented on his reality show was nothing but a facade.

In addition to the shocking revelation that Lindsie Chrisley was extorted by her father over a sex tape she made years prior, there's been a great deal of concern for Kyle Chrisley, who, until recently was estranged from his father.

Last week, Kyle was hospitalized, and his father took to Instagram to assure fans that all was well.

"NOT TODAY SATAN, NOT TODAY... God shows up and shows out, now won't he do it?" Chrisley captioned the above photo.

"Kyle is great and we are back to the grind .." he added.

Todd didn't offer any specifics as to the cause of Kyle's hospitalization, but a family spokesperson claimed he experienced a bad reaction to prescribed medications.

"He had an adverse reaction to his medication, but as you can see from the photo his father posted on Instagram, he is doing great," read the official statement.

As it turns out, the situation was a bit more complicated than that.

Kyle appeared on his family's podcast this week and revealed that he had been hospitalized after attempting to take his own life.

To be fair, the spokesperson wasn't lying, exactly, as Kyle says the suicide attempt was a result of a bad reaction to his psych meds:

“I take medication and I had a bad side effect to it and I tried to take my own life” Kyle said.

“With the meds, I got all kinds of crazy thinking going on.”

It's been a hard road for Kyle, who was arrested for possession of methamphetamine back in May.

After years of estrangement, however, Kyle now says he has reconciled with his father and believes Todd is innocent of the charges against him.

"I'm telling you now, with a clear mind, my mom and dad have done nothing wrong! Today, I am sober. I am working, and I am at a good place in my life," Kyle recently wrote on Facebook.

The comment stands in sharp contrast to a 2018 Good Morning America interview, in which Kyle stated that his father boasts about not paying taxes.

As for Todd's view of his legal future, insiders tell Radar Online that the reality star believes he will be cleared of all charges.

“Todd truly believes that he is going to get out of all these charges and walk away with a slap on the wrist” a source tells the site.

“He has convinced his children that this is the case, and his wife too.”

We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
