Victoria Siegel, the daughter of Queen of Versailles stars David and Jackie Siegel, was just 18 when she died on Saturday. Now the family’s attorney says she may received some cruel text messages on the morning she died.
Michael Marder, the Siegel’s attorney, issued a statement via Jackie Siegel’s Facebook account.
In it, he talks about the purported actions of an ex-girlfriend of the boyfriend of Victoria Siegel.
“The ex-girlfriend of Victoria’s boyfriend used his phone to send cruel and hateful text messages using the boyfriend’s phone,” Marder said in the statement. “These messages were sent early on the morning of Victoria’s death. These messages were clearly intended to hurt Victoria and while we cannot be sure may have affected her emotional state at a time when she was emotionally vulnerable.”
The teenager was alone when she received the alleged text messages and when she died. Her family was away at a wedding.
Victoria Siegel was battling an addiction to prescription medication.
Do you think these text messages may have prompted Victoria Siegel to take more drugs than her system could handle?
