New Jersey authorities open an investigation after a private topless photo of Kellyanne Conway’s teen daughter ‘Claudia’ briefly ended up on Kellyanne’s Twitter Fleets.
The New Jersey Department of Children and Families also is “looking into all concerns around the incident” involving the Conway family, who lives in the town of Alpine, Buzzfeed News reported Tuesday.
On Monday, Claudia on a TikTok video spoke about a topless photo of herself that was reportedly posted as a Twitter Fleet by Kellyanne Conway’s account. Twitter Fleets are deleted after 24 hours, as a rule.
The photo reportedly was quickly deleted, long before it normally would have been.
Conway’s husband, conservative anti-Trump lawyer George Conway, used his own influential Twitter account to share a statement directly from the couple’s 16-year-old daughter Claudia on Tuesday.
“This isn’t forced. This is coming completely from me, Claudia,” the teen said in a series of clips first posted on her public TikTok account.
“I have faith and I know that my mother would never put something like that on the Internet, as well as me. We would never do that,” she said.

“My mom and I, we fight like mothers and daughters, but we also love like mothers and daughters, and I do love her,” she said. “I will be taking a break from social media because we are really tired of being headlines.”
In a separate video shared on her TikTok, the teen said she was “distraught” when she initially suggested her mom intentionally posted the photo. The eldest daughter said she now believes her mom was hacked.
“Please do not incite hate or violence on my family. Please, not threats, no calls to authorities,” Claudia said in the clips shared by her dad. “I love my mom and she loves me.”
