The self-made millionaire and reality star writes, "grieve the loss of ones you love that didn't love you."

Todd Chrisley has issued a warning against "attention seekers" in a message he posted to Instagram amid allegations he attempted to extort his own daughter.

The post came soon after it emerged his estranged daughter, Lindsie Chrisley, had filed a police report last month in Georgia, alleging her father, Todd, and brother, Chase Chrisley, were attempting to extort her with a sex tape -- one she believed Chase had purchased.

In the police report, obtained by TMZ, Lindsie alleges both her father and brother threatened to release the video if she didn't lie about an "incident." Sources close to Lindsie claimed the "incident" was in relation to her testimony regarding her parents' recent indictment on multiple federal charges, including tax evasion, bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy.

"Trust and believe that we are holding the right hand of God on this walk we are on, if he brings us to it he will bring us through it," Todd wrote on Instagram Thursday. "Please don't fall victim to false prophets, don't give attention to the attention seekers, stay steady on your course, grieve the loss of ones you love that didn't love you, pray for them even though they have wronged you, forgive them for yourself and ask God to move them on."

Although he didn't outwardly mention Lindsie or her claims, the self-made millionaire and reality star appeared to allude to the situation as a "distraction."

"We are getting back to work after this distraction and our show hasn't been cancelled," he wrote. "God delivered much clarity yesterday as to those who set a net for us, so the Lord says, 'May the net your enemies cast for you be the same net they become snared in."

"To each and everyone that has supported us on this journey we call life, we love you with all of our hearts," he added. "The kindness we have been shown yesterday and through this process has been overwhelming, God is good, we drop our hands and surrender to God and will let God do the rest, you can't claim FAITH and still express FEAR."

Todd denies he and his son are in cahoots and told TMZ that Lindsie was lying. He also said he and Chase did not purchase the sex tape, which allegedly involves a "Bachelor" star.

Sources connected to Todd told the news outlet he suspects Lindsie might actually be part of the reason he and wife Julie Chrisley got indicted in the first place; however, Lindsie's attorney, Musa Ghanayem, said any report of her ratting out her family is untrue.

Lindsie's case in Georgia has since been dismissed, according to TMZ, because the alleged threat and harassment occurred in Tennessee.

On Tuesday, Todd and Julie were slapped with a multi-count indictment, alleging years of tax evasion, bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy between 2007 and 2012. Court docs claim the couple ran a scheme in which they swindled banks out of millions of dollars in loans by providing fraudulent information, then skipped out on paying federal taxes on the money they earned. Their accountant was indicted, too.

On Wednesday, the Chrisleys turned themselves in and pled not guilty in court.

Shortly before the charges became public, though, the couple put out a lengthy statement, denying any wrongdoing. According to Todd and Julie, a former employee of theirs carried out the financial crimes without their knowledge or participation. They insist they have nothing to hide.
