The 16-year-old singer and daughter of former Donald Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway revealed the news to her 1.7 million followers on TikTok. In the video, Claudia Conway appeared in good spirits — despite being hooked up to an IV — dancing in her hospital bed to Lil Baby x Gunna’s song, “Drip Too Hard.” Though Conway appeared carefree, she wrote a fearful caption: “let’s hope that my appendix isn’t about to burst.”
Per TMZ, Conway’s health condition remains unclear. But, according to TikTok, she seems to be doing just fine. Just two days after the hospital TikTok video, Conway posted a video clip Thursday of herself dancing and looking well in front of a door marked “urgent care.”
Conway Was Eliminated From ‘American Idol’
Conway has hopes to make it as a singer, a far cry from the career paths of both her parents, Kellyanne and father George Conway, a high-profile lawyer. Back in February, Claudia Conway wowed “American Idol” judges with her rendition of Adele’s “When We Were Young” during auditions. However, Conway’s journey was cut short when she was axed after the duets round in March, as ET reported.
Before her elimination, during Hollywood Week, Conway told Idol cameras that this experience has helped her overcome some of her self-doubts, drown out the opinions of people about her and her family on social media, and build her own identity as an artist. “Most people don’t know that I’m into music. Most people don’t know that I’m a singer. And it’s very important to me,” she said.
Conway Has Her Own Political Beliefs
Conway isn’t afraid to voice her own political opinions on social media, even if they’re different from her famous parents.
Conway has used TikTok to call out Kellyanne Conway’s conservative beliefs in videos like one she posted after the January 6 riot at the Capitol in which she addressed her mother, asking, “How do you feel about your army becoming rioters?” Back in late 2020, she threatened emancipation from her parents on Twitter upon learning her mom would speak at the Republican National Convention.
Conway tweeted: “i’m devasted that my mother is actually speaking at the RNC. like DEVASTATED beyond compare.” She followed that with a post saying: “i’m officially pushing for emancipation. buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. welcome to my life.”
