Strapped for cash?

Todd and Julie Chrisley are attempting to sell their Tennessee mansion for a whopping $4.9 million amid their tax evasion scandal, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

The reality star couple put the 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom home on the market just after Todd revealed in an Instagram post that he and his wife Julie believes they will be named in an upcoming federal indictment.

According to the site, the home underwent a complete renovation with top of the line finishes, including an exquisite formal dining room with custom hand painted Gracie wallpaper, as well as a gorgeous study with fumed oak and custom finish.

Todd and Julie's dream home also boasts a professional chef's kitchen with dual Subzero refrigerators and freezers and a "one of a kind" indoor sports court!

The pair bought the property just four months ago in April, but they've already put it on the market as sources reveal to Radar exclusively the couple "need cash!"

Readers know on Monday, August 12, Todd said on social media he believes that he and his wife will be named in an upcoming federal indictment for tax evasion, and blamed a former “trusted employee” for providing the U.S. Attorney’s Office with “phony documents” to help in the case against the Chrisley Knows Best stars.

“I’ve never talked about this publicly before, but there’s been a cloud hanging over Julie and me and our entire family for the past seven years,” the post began. “It all started back in 2012, when we discovered that a trusted employee of ours had been stealing from us big time.”

Although the U.S. Attorney’s Office For Atlanta would not confirm an investigation, Todd claimed it involved “creating phony documents, forging our signatures and threatening other employees with violence if they said anything.”

“Needless to say, we fired the guy and took him to court — and that’s when the real trouble started,” he claimed. “To get revenge, he took a bunch of his phony documents to the U.S. Attorney’s office and told them we had committed all kinds of financial crimes, like tax evasion and bank fraud. That got their attention all right, but once we had a chance to explain who he was and what he’d done to us, they realized it was all a bunch of nonsense and they sent him on his way.”

He then claimed the ex employee persuaded “a different set” of investigators to reopen the case and grant him immunity from prosecution for his own crimes.

“As a result, it looks like later this week Julie and I are going to be named in a federal indictment charging us with tax evasion and probably a bunch of other financial crimes as well,” he said.

“I’m telling you all this now because we have nothing to hide and have done nothing to be ashamed of. Not only do we know we’ve done nothing wrong, but we’ve got a ton of hard evidence and a bunch of corroborating witnesses that proves it," he concluded.
