Raelynn defends ‘Incredible’ Todd, Julie Chrisley after sentencing

Singer Raelynn defended her pals Todd & Julie Chrisley after the reality TV couple was sentenced to prison for white-collar crimes. 

“Todd & Julie Chrisley are some of the most Incredible & giving people I have ever met,” the “God Made Girls” singer, 28, wrote via her Instagram Stories on Monday. 

“To see the results of today is absolutely DISGUSTING. This is wrong. The lies & misinformation that have been spread about this case & this family are uncanny.”

Raelynn, who competed in “The Voice” Season 2 in 2012, also encouraged the court system to “actually [sentence] people who commit crimes. NOT GOOD PEOPLE WHO HELP AND LOVE PEOPLE.”

The musician’s friend Paige Szupello — the Chrisleys’ longtime makeup artist — also supported Todd, 53, & Julie, 49, on social media, urging followers to be compassionate.

“The Chrisley family are one of my life’s absolute biggest blessings,” she wrote in a Story of her own on Monday. 

“They are people just like us. I wouldn’t wish what they’re going through on my worst enemy, & to have to go through all of this in the spotlight, I can’t even comprehend,” Szupello continued. “This is a family. The most incredible family who make our world a better place.”

Todd was slapped with 12 years behind bars, while Julie received a seven-year sentence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia confirmed.

“Over the course of a decade, the defendants defrauded banks out of tens of millions of dollars while evading payment of their federal income taxes,” U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said in a statement. 

“Their lengthy sentences reflect the magnitude of their criminal scheme & should serve as a warning to others tempted to exploit our nation’s community banking system for unlawful personal gain.”

After they were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison on bank fraud & tax evasion charges, in addition to submitting false documents to banks, it appears they are going to have to give up their homes.

Judge Eleanor Ross of the US District Court in Atlanta ordered the “Chrisley Knows Best” stars to pay $17.2 million in restitution in relation to their $36 million fraud scheme. 

Sources told The Post they’d likely have to give up their two Nashville, Tennessee, mansions worth roughly $9 million to help meet their obligation.

“They’re going to have to give up a lot of things, including their homes, sadly. They won’t be able to afford it,” the source said. “But their main concern now is their children, especially their youngest boy.”
