Victoria Siegel, Daughter Of 'Queen Of Versailles' Stars, Dead At 18

WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say the 18-year-old daughter of the stars of the documentary "Queen of Versailles" has died after being found unresponsive at their home near Orlando.

Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jeff Williamson says Victoria Siegel was found by deputies at the family's home in Windermere on Saturday afternoon. She was declared dead at a nearby hospital.

A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

She was the daughter of David and Jackie Siegel, stars of Lauren Greenfield's 2012 documentary, "Queen of Versailles," which followed them as they built a second, 90,000-square-foot mansion. David Siegel later sued Greenfield for "false and defamatory statements," but lost the lawsuit in March 2014.

David Siegel is the founder of Orlando-based time-share company Westgate Resorts. His wife is a former Mrs. Florida America.

UPDATE: Victoria's mother confirmed her daughter's death in a Facebook post on Sunday:

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.
As more information comes out the family will share it, until that time there is no comment.
