Kellyanne Conway, former counselor to ex-president Donald Trump, is reportedly under investigation after an alleged topless photo of her underage daughter Claudia was said to be posted to her Twitter account.
As OK! reported, the photo in question was said to be posted on Kellyanne's Fleets on the social media app Twitter — similar to Instagram's Story feature, deleting 24 hours after it is posted — on January 25.
When a fan brought things to the attention of the 16-year-old, Claudia seemed overwhelmed, distressed and confused — and said she was unsure how a picture of this nature could make it to the interwebs. At the time, she also said that she was unsure if Kellyanne posted the image or if this was the work of a hacker.
According to a report, an investigation into the situation has been launched, and four officers paid a visit to the Conway family’s New Jersey mansion on Tuesday, January 26 — the same day that Claudia seemed to retract prior statements on TikTok.
Conway’s daughter added that she was quitting the social media platform for the time being and asked her followers to un-involve themselves from the ongoing family drama she’s been continuously parading around social media.
Just before noon, four officers were said to have showed up at the Conways’ home in tiny Alpine and spent about an hour inside before leaving. “An investigation is being conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office. No additional information can be released,” Alpine Chief of Police Christopher Belcolle recently said, noting that records regarding juveniles are not made public.
After Claudia’s initial reaction — she admitted that she acted “very irrationally and impulsively” — she went on to tell her followers that there was no bad blood between her and her mother. She also said she believes Kellyanne “would never put something like that on the internet.”
She insisted, “We fight like mothers and daughters, but being in the public eye exacerbates that greatly. And it adds a lot of stress to both of our lives, and I don’t want that. I don’t want any drama, I don’t want any hate, so I will be leaving social media for a bit to work on my relationship with my mom and my family. Please do not incite hate or violence on my family. Please. No threats, no calls to authorities. I love my mom, and she loves me.”
