AceShowbiz - Todd Chrisley is setting the record straight. The "Chrisley Knows Best" star clarified rumors about his wife Julie Chrisley's health as she was sent to inmate medical center in Kentucky, rather than federal prison in Florida in their fraud and tax evasion case.
In a new episode of their podcast "Chrisley Confession", Todd addressed the matter once and for all. While Julie is serving in the inmate medical center, he shared that she's okay. "We're not facing, to our knowledge, a death sentence. Neither one of us is dying of cancer that we know of," he stressed, with Julie responding, "Right."
TMZ also revealed that Julie's move to FMC in Lexington is not an indicator she's getting any treatment. Sources also added that she doesn't need any at this time.
Back in 2012, Julie was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent treatment the next year. She later celebrated being cancer-free in March 2022. In an interview with PEOPLE, Julie shared that her doctor told her she could stop taking cancer-treating drugs 10 years after her double mastectomy.
In the podcast episode, the 53-year-old patriarch went on to say, "I know that this may be my future for a minute, but I also have faith that the judicial system is going to turn it around. I also have faith that the appellate court is going to see this for what it is," he said of their imminent imprisonment," Todd said in the episode, which was recorded before the duo reported to two separate prisons on Tuesday, January 17.
Todd also revealed that he's in "a better place" before he started his own 12-year sentence "because I know that this is not my final destination." He additionally said that no one knows "what's going to come at you" as he added that drop dead from a heart attack at any moment. Todd, however, acknowledged, "There are so many more people that are facing far worse than what we're facing."
The episode arrived after it was reported that Julie's designated prison was changed on December 20, 2022. She's set to enter the Federal Medical Center Lexington in Lexington, Ky, where inmates require medical or mental health care, instead of the Sunshine State's Correctional Institution Marianna.
