Kellyanne Conway’s daughter backtracks after igniting topless photo firestorm

The teenage daughter of Kellyanne Conway backtracked Tuesday after accusing her mother of posting a topless picture of her online, saying she believes the former Trump adviser’s phone was hacked.

Claudia Conway caused a stir on Monday when she took to her TikTok account to accuse her mother of stealing her phone, finding the picture of her topless, and then posting the illicit photo to her Twitter account under the new Fleets feature, which automatically deletes all posts after 24 hours.

“Apparently that’s real and here’s what I guess happened,” Claudia Conway said in a video montage that was saved by others but deleted from her account. “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. “But nobody would ever have any photo like that ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to f**king jail.”

In additional TikTok videos, Claudia — who has publicly sparred with her mother and father, George Conway, co-founder of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project — urged her 1.6 million followers to report the topless post to authorities.

“My mom deserves to go to jail,” she said in the videos that showed up on various Twitter accounts. “That’s unreal. She’s the only person that has it.”

The New York Post reported that Kellyanne, who was President Donald Trump’s top political adviser for the majority of his term, said she was “sitting here with Claudia” before adding, “We have no comment,” and hanging up.

Not long after, Claudia Conway took to her TikTok account to say that she is certain her mother’s device was hacked and pleaded with people to stop contacting police over the alleged photo post.

“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,” she 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,” she added. “The best option right now, the best path right now, for the both of us is to get off of social media and work on our relationship.”

A representative from Twitter told the Post: “Through technology and human review, we’ll proactively remove any images that violate the Twitter Rules.”

In late August, in the throes of the presidential campaign, Kellyanne Conway resigned from the White House following a bitter public family blow-up, saying she wanted to focus more on her teen daughter. George Conway left the Lincoln Project as well.

“This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama,” she wrote.

She also addressed her husband’s anti-Trump activism.

“We disagree about plenty, but we are united on what matters most: the kids,” Kellyanne said. “Our four children are teens and ‘tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids ‘doing school from home requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times.”
