He has been known to people for TV shows such as Chrisley Knows Best and According to Chrisley. According to Mark, who testified in the court in May 2022, he and Todd were physical and prefer not to share any more details with the jury regarding their relationship.
Certainly, there is no way, they wouldn’t maintain the affair without getting cautious. In addition, they must’ve maintained the affair for a significantly long period. The scandalous affair came to an end, and Mark carried on working in Todd’s company. He even claimed that he and Todd maintained a “brotherly” relationship. But, the unthinkable happened in the end.
Despite their alertness to keep it as lowkey as possible, a few people caught the wind of the ex-marital relationship between the two. And because the individual also knew about Todd’s tax and wire fraud, he thought it was the perfect opportunity to dupe two men out of thousands of dollars.
According to Mark’s testimony, an anonymous source sent a text. The text was meant to threaten to expose their relationship and Todd’s fraud. They had no choice at the time but to pay the sum which was $38,000. Mark reportedly withdrew from the bank in four $9,500 payments, before meeting Chrisley in a parking garage.
He handed over the bag full of money to Todd to pay the blackmailer.
FBI accused Todd and his wife Julie of tax evasion. In these difficult times, Mark thought he should help his ex-lover to commit the fraud to protect them from going to jail. An insider stated that Mark generated false tax paperwork for Todd and sent them to banks, as well as impersonating Todd in emails and phone calls.
Mark kept working for Todd until 2012 but the “brotherly” relationship which he claimed two of them had, came to an end after Todd and Julie fired him from the company. It was probably the feeling of betrayal and revenge that he felt, Mark decided to get back at the reality star and his wife.
