Todd Chrisley‘s partnership with Beckett’s Spirits has been dropped as the reality star faces up to 30 years in prison for fraud, Us Weekly confirms.
Tinley Beverage Company Inc noted in a press release on Monday, June 27, that it “has served notice and has terminated” their agreement with Chrisley, 53, on being their brand ambassador. The businessman, for his part, still has Beckett’s Spirits listed in his Instagram bio.
The Chrisley Knows Best star announced his partnership with Beckett’s in January 2021. Todd confirmed that Todd was his wife at the time. Julie ChrisleyThe mother and the daughter Savannah Chrisley would be joining him as they promoted the company’s line of non-alcoholic spirits and cocktails as part of their “sober curious” movement.
“As America’s #1 Helicopter parent, my mission has been to find the perfect, sophisticated, non-alcoholic party cocktails for our family and friends of all generations – from Chase [Chrisley] and Savannah, even my Mother Nanny Faye,” the real estate mogul, who last posted about the partnership in August 2021, stated in a press release earlier that year. “When I couldn’t find anything, I found the right partner in the Beckett’s team. They knew exactly what to do to make magic happen, without alcohol or the bland, boring, and socially awkward options for sugary sodas, waters, and other beverages. So now, when everyone gets home, they will have been socially responsible – ALL GOOD. And everyone’s happy.”
News of the terminated partnership comes after Todd and Julie’s conviction on 12 counts of tax evasion, bank and wire fraud, and conspiracy. After denying the claims, the couple was indicted in 2019. They plan to file for a new trial ahead of their October sentencing.
A source revealed that the verdict was delivered earlier in the month. Use that “the entire family is devastated” as they “[weren’t] sure what this means” for their future projects and TV shows.
“No one knows what’s going to happen or what to do at this stage,” the insider noted. “Any future planning in Todd and Julie’s life is pretty much on pause until they learn of the sentencing in the fall. It’s horrible news and they were not expecting to be found guilty. Their whole life changed in that moment.”
Todd broke his silence about his legal woes during an episode of his “Chrisley Confessions” podcast that same month. “We wanted to let everyone know that it’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now,” he detailed. “But we still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he does because God’s a miracle worker — and that’s what we’re holding out for.”
Their marketing company has supported the famous family. “I think the people don’t say the real side of them; they only see the TV side,” DavidSuperior Marketing CEO, Paul, 26 years old, exclusively told UsIn a statement made Monday, June 27, “I wish people can see how truly great that they are. I just feel bad that they’re getting all this negative publicity. I support them because I’ve seen a better side of the family.”
