Victoria Siegel — the teenage daughter of Jacqueline and David Siegel, who were profiled in the 2012 documentary, The Queen of Versailles — has been declared dead after she was found unresponsive at her family’s palatial “Seagull Island” estate near Orlando, Fla., on Saturday, June 6. She was 18-years-old.
A cause of death has yet to be revealed — though her mother confirmed her passing on Facebook.

“It is with great sadness that we ask you to respect our privacy during this tragic time and the loss of our beloved daughter, Victoria. Thank you all for your prayers and for your support,” the 49-year-old wrote.
“As more information comes out the family will share it, until that time there is no comment.”

The Siegel family first rose to prominence when they were profiled by filmmaker Lauren Greenfield for a documentary called The Queen of Versailles, which followed the wealthy family as they attempted to build one of the largest single-family detached homes in the United States despite the on-going recession.
David sued the documentarian for “false and defamatory statements,” but ultimately lost the lawsuit in March 2014.
