In a shocking turn of events acclaimed and well-known reality TV stars Julie Chrisley and Todd were charged with tax evasion.
Star couple of hit TV reality show, “Chrisley Knows Best”, the duo were indicted for not one but quite a few charges. Julie was charged with bank fraud and wire fraud conspiracy among the other offences listed, as reported by CNN.

Todd captioned his post as :
