Reality star Todd Chrisley seen bragging about spending $300k a year on clothes in resurfaced clip

Todd Chrisley and his wife Julie - stars of reality TV show Chrisley Knows Best - were sentenced to jail yesterday

Video footage has resurfaced that shows Todd Chrisley bragging about his extravagant lifestyle on his TV show before it was revealed that he and his wife had defrauded millions. Check it out for yourself below:

Chrisley and his wife Julie were sentenced to jail time yesterday for their part in the fraud, which saw them using fake financial statements to appear much wealthier than they were before taking out bank loans worth millions.

Then, the pair spent the cash living a dream life with luxury cars, expensive holidays, and all the trappings of being a rich family.

Yesterday, that life came to an abrupt end after Todd was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Julie was sentenced to seven years incarceration and their accountant Peter Tarantino received a three-year jail term.

However, footage from their TV show Chrisley Knows Best has now come back to public attention because of a boast from Todd claiming to have spent $300,000 on clothes for the family.

That claim was made just two years after he told a bankruptcy court that he only had $100 to his name and absolutely nothing in his bank accounts.

In that promotional video for their reality TV show, Todd Chrisley said: “In a year we probably spend $300,000 a year, probably more, on clothing.

“I approve every piece of clothing that our children wear.”

The Chrisleys have already said that they intend to appeal against their sentences, with their family attorney releasing a statement that said: “Yesterday was a difficult day for the Chrisley family.

“But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions,

“Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid.

“Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”

Another attorney for Todd Chrisley, Bruce Morris, confirmed: “An appeal is planned.”

In an emotional sentencing hearing, both defendants addressed the court to ask for leniency because of their children, with Todd asking for his wife to receive a lower sentence on the grounds that she is their children’s primary caregiver.

Julie added: "To hear your 10-year-old say she doesn't want to live if their mom goes away, no child should feel that way.”

However, US District Judge Eleanor Ross pointed the blame back at them, stating: "It is heartbreaking, but it has to be burdened by the defendants,

"I've never heard any acceptance of any crime; I've never really heard any admission to any wrongdoing or any remorse."
