The so-called Queen of Versailles is in mourning today and speaking out about the shocking death of her teenage daughter.
Jackie Siegel took to Facebook to say, “It is with great sadness that we ask you to respect our privacy during this tragic time and the loss of our beloved daughter, Victoria. Thank you all for your prayers and for your support.”
Eighteen-year-old Victoria Siegel was found unconscious at the family compound near Orlando. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Jackie and her billionaire husband, David Siegel, have eight children.
Just last week, Jackie appeared care-free as she spoke to INSIDE EDITION about her appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap.
Her words have a special poignancy now. She said, “It really made me come back to earth and realize what’s super important in my life. Meaning, my children and my husband”
Victoria, then age 15, appeared in a documentary called The Queen of Versailles about her mom and the extraordinary mansion the couple has had under construction for eleven years. It’s still unfinished.
It’s said to be the largest private home in America with 13 bedrooms, 30 bathrooms, and a 20-car garage.
One report says Victoria died of a drug overdose, and had just returned from a stint in rehab. But, authorities have not yet released an official cause of death.
