Claudia Conway apologized Tuesday for publicly accusing her mother Kellyanne of leaking a topless photo of her to Twitter, insisting she’d ‘never intentionally do that’ and says she believes the former Trump aide was hacked.
Former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway was accused by her 16-year-old daughter Claudia of posting a topless picture of her on Twitter on Monday.
According to screenshots posted across social media, Kellyanne’s official account is seen to have shared the nude image of her teen daughter using Twitter’s newly launched Fleets feature, which deletes posts after 24 hours.
Claudia leveled the accusation to her 1.6 million followers on TikTok.
“Apparently that’s real and here’s what I guess happened,” the teen said. “The picture’s from months ago and I’m assuming that when my mom took my phone — any time she’s taken it because she takes it all the time — she took a picture of that, so that was on her phone.
“And I guess she accidentally posted it, or somebody hacked her,” Claudia continued in the post, which was also deleted but saved by users on Twitter. “But nobody would ever have any photo like that ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to f–king jail.”
Claudia Conway said, “My mom deserves to go to jail.”

In other deleted TikToks, Claudia — who in the past has publicly warred with Kellyanne and her father, George Conway — urged her followers to report the photo.
“My mom deserves to go to jail,” she said in the videos that reappeared on Twitter. “That’s unreal. She’s the only person that has it.”
Reached by phone Tuesday, Kellyanne, who was an adviser to former President Donald Trump, said she was “sitting here with Claudia” before saying, “We have no comment” and hanging up.
A short time later, the outspoken teen took to TikTok again, insisting that she believed her mother was hacked and begging people to stop contacting law enforcement over the alleged photo.
“Yesterday when I was made aware of the situation I was distraught and very, very upset and I acted irrationally and impulsive and it is something I do regret,” Claudia said.
“I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally and I do believe she was hacked. I want to apologize for making all of this public.”
