Lindsie and Todd have been on the outs since a nasty public row nearly two years ago in which she accused him of trying to extort her with a sex tape and he alleged that she had cheated on Will with more than one man.
On his podcast this week Todd said: 'I do not wish a divorce on any family, certainly not after going through one and watching what it did to Lindsie and Kyle so I certainly was not hoping to see that pattern repeated.'
Todd, a real estate tycoon, shares his children Lindsie and Kyle with his first wife Teresa Terry who had been his high school sweetheart.
He stated that 'Will Campbell has always been a good provider to my daughter and to my grandson,' nine-year-old Jackson.

Todd asserted that Will 'and his family have always been very supportive of Lindsie and Jackson to the best of my knowledge, which is very limited.'
While noting that he and Lindsie 'don't have a relationship' and have no contact with one another, Todd said of the split: 'I hate it for Jackson, but I know that Will has always been a good father like I said, to the limited amount of knowledge that I have, but the times that I've been around him with Jackson he was a great father.'
Todd added: 'To the times that I have witnessed - which have been a handful of times - his family with Jackson they have been wonderful grandparents and are really the only grandparents that Jackson knows and has a relationship with, so, and the only family really that he has a relationship with.'
He shared his hopes that Lindsie and Jackson will continue to enjoy a bond with Will's relatives because 'I want Jackson to have as little disruption as possible.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

On his Instagram that day he wrote a message from 'God and Todd' and did not name its target but said '#you know who you are.'
'I’m here. I love you. Whatever is going on in your life right now, I see it, and I’m working all things out for good, for you, my child. There is nothing you can do or have done that will make me ever love you less. I will protect you from anything, and anyone who tries’s to harm you or your reputation,' he wrote.
'I am stronger than depression and anxiety. I am braver than loneliness, and nothing will ever exhaust me. I promise you I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am breathing a new wind into and over your life right now.'
Todd gushed: 'Look for the favor and blessings I’m sending in this season your way because they are from me. I love you so much!'

Lindsie had a tense relationship with Todd, as well as her half-brother Chase, during her time on the reality series Chrisley Knows Best.
However matters came to a head over the summer of 2019 when she accused Chase and Todd in a police report of plotting to leak a 'sex tape involving her.'
Todd turned around and alleged that Lindsie had been unfaithful to Will with Josh Murray and Robby Hayes of The Bachelorette fame.
