While Todd Chrisley continues to serve his 12-year prison sentence for fraud and tax evasion, several racist tweets and voicemails from years ago are resurfacing online – all of which are directed towards his former daughter-in-law, Alexus Whilby, who used to be married to Todd’s eldest son, Kyle Chrisley.
“I endured the bullying comments for years in silence, but karma dealt with it so that I didn’t have to,” Whilby told Daily Mail last week as the tweets and voicemails resurfaced. “To see a grown man and public figure, who is the grandfather to a beautiful black child, say those horrible things was shocking.”
Alexus and Kyle tied the knot in 2014, but the couple divorced in 2018 after four years of marriage. While they don’t share any children together, Alexus was a stepmother to Kyle’s daughter, Chloe, who was born in 2012 while Kyle was dating Angela Johnson. Alexus describes Chloe as a ‘beautiful black child.’

The racist tweets in question, which have since been deleted, were posted by Todd Chrisley on April 4, 2015. “Alexus Whilby stop being silly u fame seeking wh**e.. U can’t count high enough to reach me,” Todd wrote in one tweet. It came just a few months after Todd accused Alexus of extorting him for $20k.
Todd Chrisley didn’t stop there and doubled down on his racist rant, replying to his first tweet. “bye you tired a*s weave wearing ashy skinned H*, u r blocked now, We are bored with pity for u,” he continued. The tweets are just some of the, what is being described as, “bullying comments” Todd directed towards his former daughter-in-law over the years.
In 2017, Todd Chrisley learned that Alexus Whilby was allegedly speaking to the Georgia Department of Revenue and assisting their investigation – the same investigation that landed him in prison for 12 years. He reportedly proceeded to send her a voicemail regarding an email he received addressed from her to the DOR.
In the email, Alexus was asking for protection from the DOR. “No darling, you don’t need protection, you need an attorney,” he said in the voicemail – adding that a lawsuit wouldn’t be a ‘vendetta’ against her, but rather an opportunity to force Alexus to ‘do the right thing’ and ‘acknowledge what she’s done.’
“We are still waiting for a response from her attorney now regarding her divorce. And we can’t seem to get a response, so normally when people don’t respond to you it is because they haven’t paid their attorneys. So, I assume if she can’t pay a mortgage on time, she can’t pay her attorney on time,” Todd continued.
Kyle Chrisley Also Helped Convict Todd Chrisley
According to 2017 court documents, Alexus Whilby wasn’t the only one assisting the Georgia Department of Revenue in their collection efforts against Todd Chrisley and his wife, Julie Chrisley. His eldest son, Kyle Chrisley, was also part of a Skype call – with his then-wife, Alexus – and assisted in their efforts.
In fact, it was Kyle who allegedly told the DOR that his father had offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes on money he was making at the time. Not long after that Skype call, Alexus spoke with the DOR about a warehouse that was part of a scheme to get an IRS tax lien removed from one of Todd’s properties.
Nearly a year later, Todd tried to pressure Alexus into testifying on his behalf as the DOR closed in on the allegations – this came after they executed a search warrant on the warehouse. It was at this time that Alexus decided to file for divorce from Kyle – hoping to put the entire situation in the rearview mirror.
“Being married to Kyle taught me that it’s not the glitz and the glamour that people like to flaunt on the outside that is important. It is about being a good person behind the scenes and being true to yourself and others,” Alexus told Daily Mail – referring to what she learned during the four-year marriage.
