Police officers showed up at the home of Kellyanne Conway — a former advisor to Donald Trump — after a topless photo of her teenage daughter was posted to social media this week.
The photo of her 16-year-old daughter, Claudia Conway, was posted to Twitter Fleets and later deleted — but not before many users had screenshotted the image and reshared it on the site and elsewhere.
Following a visit to the family home in New Jersey, Alpine police issued a statement to confirm an investigation was underway into the incident.
Four police officers arrived at the Conways’ home on Tuesday around noon. Officials would not share further information about the investigation at this stage since a person under the age of 18 is involved.
Our daughter Claudia asked me to tweet this statement for her. https://t.co/ilH7IFqERB

Claudia Conway, who has more than 1.6 million followers on the social media platform TikTok after becoming famous for her rifts with her mother, posted a video to say it was either her mother or hackers who had shared the nude photo.
It was posted to Twitter Fleets, where posts are deleted after 24 hours. However, the image was deleted less than 24 hours after it was posted.
Claudia told her followers in the video that nobody would have a photo of her like that and used expletives as she speculated that her mother would be “going to jail.”
The teenager said: “I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day, and then somebody hacked her or something. I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it. Nobody would ever have any photo like that ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to f–king jail.”
After the visit on Tuesday, Claudia took to her social media page once again to ask people not to contact the authorities about the picture.
She apologized for making the incident so public and alleged that hackers had accessed her mother’s Twitter account.
She explained to her fans that she does not believe her mother, Kellyanne, would do anything like that to purposefully cause her harm.
She confessed: “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.”
Her father, conservative lawyer George Conway also shared a video where she asked people to stop calling the authorities.
Kellyanne Conway has not commented on the situation.
