The teen daughter of billionaire “Queen of Versailles” couple David and Jackie Siegel battled with an addiction to pills and returned home from rehab just weeks before her death.
“At this time we are assuming that there was an overdose,” family lawyer Michael Marder said about Victoria Siegel, who was found dead Saturday after being discovered unresponsive in her family’s Central Florida mansion.
“Victoria was in rehab and was prescribed medication but we do not know what was in her system at the time of her death or what the actual cause of death was,” Marder added.
Sources told TMZ that Victoria struggled with Xanax, but was doing better since returning home from rehab about two weeks ago.
An autopsy on Siegel, 18, was completed Monday, according to the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office, which is awaiting toxicology results that could take eight to 12 weeks.
Victoria was found in the family’s 26,000-square-foot Seagull Island home on Green Island Cove, close to where family patriarch David Siegel — who struck it rich as the founder of time-share company Westgate Resorts — was attempting to build a 90,000-square-foot mansion, the largest single-family home in the nation.
The ostentatious domicile — which has not been completed because of financial setbacks in the wake of the 2009 economic crisis — was the subject of the 2012 documentary “The Queen of Versailles.”
