Chrisley Knows Best star lifts lid on 'filthy' jail and claims dead cat fell from ceiling

Todd Chrisley has detailed the allegedly “filthy” prison conditions in a new interview, including a not-so-appetizing meal.

Todd Chrisley is currently serving his 12-year jail sentence for bank and tax fraud offenses in Federal Prison Camp Pensacola. He reported to the minimum security federal prison camp in January, which is hundreds of miles away from his wife Julia in another jail. Now the reality star has spoken out against the prison’s “disgusting” conditions in his first interview behind bars.

Todd Chrisley claims prison is ‘starving’ inmates of food

In his first prison interview, Chrisley claimed to Newsnation’s Brian Entin conditions are so horrifying that food is “disgustingly filthy” and expired by one year.

“The food is literally, I’m not exaggerating, the food is dated,” Todd claims.

Prison staff allegedly covered up inmates’ food with plastic while they were removing black mold from the ceiling when a dead cat dropped onto the food, Chrisley alleged.

“You’ve got rats, you’ve got squirrels in the storage facility where the food is.”

The Chrisley Knows Best star predicts Entin wasn’t allowed to interview inside the camp to avoid him seeing “what’s really going on,” not because it was a “breach of security.”

As for his diet, the reality star says he only eats the food he purchases from the commissary, particularly tuna and peanut butter for protein, and a pasta salad he makes himself. However, he claims a warden has been trying to “break” him by limiting the amount of food items he can buy. He could allegedly purchase 12 packs of tuna but the warden has cut the quota to three, reportedly without stating a reason.

GRV Media and Reality Tibit have reached out to FPC Pensacola for comment.
