Chrisley Knows Best fans have wondered how Todd and Julie Chrisley’s marriage would survive separation behind bars. Sadly, there are so many doubters among the reality TV show’s fanbase that a divorce rumor grew legs and quickly spread. Some speculated the couple couldn’t survive having no contact and only being able to communicate via email.
Despite being behind bars, Todd and Julie Chrisley caught wind of the rumors surrounding the fragile status of their marriage. Using their attorney, Jay Surgent, as their mouthpiece, the couple broke their silence on the divorce rumors.
Is there trouble in paradise? Or, are these rumors… just rumors? Keep reading for the details.
They Can Only Communicate By Email
Despite being married, there are pretty strict rules that prevent inmates at different facilities from communicating. Moreover, inmates can only make phone calls by calling the person they want to talk to. The person typically has to accept a fee to take the phone call. So, the system just isn’t set up for there to even be a way for Julie and Todd to communicate on the phone.
Because they are married, however, they were given special permission to communicate via email. It, however, is the only way they can communicate until Julie gets out (as she gets out before him).
Once Julie Chrisley isn’t behind bars, she will be able to speak to her husband on the phone. It is unclear if she would be able to visit him though as she may have restrictions after being released preventing her from doing so.
Todd & Julie Chrisley Address Divorce Rumors
Speaking exclusively to RadarOnline, Jay Surgent addresses swirling rumors that Julie Chrisley and her husband Todd are getting a divorce. The Chrisley Knows Best attorney assures the outlet there is no truth to the rumors. In fact, he insists Julie Chrisley loves her husband Todd more than she’s ever loved him before.

The attorney continues to share: “Julie desperately misses Todd. She makes statements like she wishes she could just be there to make sure he is eating or wishes she could just check on him and make sure he is okay.”
Now, that wasn’t to sell Todd Chrisley’s love for his wife short. In fact, Jay Surgent also affirmed the reality TV king’s love burns just as bright for his queen as it always has. Jay shares that every time they get on the phone Todd’s first questions are always regarding his wife’s wellbeing.
