Jackie and David Siegel are ready to set the record straight.
On Wednesday, the Queen of Versailles couple spoke with a local Florida news team following their daughter, Victoria Siegel's burial. The teen's mother discussed the events that lead to her daughter's death — and seemed hesitant to confirm her passing was a suicide.
"I don't think [she] had any intentions of killing herself. I think she just wanted to soothe the pain she was going through."
As we previously reported, the 18-year-old was found Saturday afternoon unresponsive in the family's home in Windermere, Florida. Since the news broke, a rep for the family shared that Victoria struggled with prescription drugs in the past.
The family has since revealed that the teenager had also been bullied online by her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.
However, it seems Victoria's mom is standing firm in her belief that her daughter's death was an accident.
It's said that it could take up to 12 weeks for the autopsy results to report what exactly happened to the young heiress.
Regardless, the Queen of Versailles' patriarch reflected on the milestones he'll miss now that his daughter has past away.
"This should've been a happy time of celebration where I would have been walking her down the aisle and she would have started a new life as a new wife and a new mother. Instead we are having to bury her."
Our thoughts are with the Siegel family during this trying time.
