Kellyanne Conway was questioned Wednesday by police in Washington, D.C., after her 16-year-old daughter alleged abuse in several TikTok videos, according to the teen.
Claudia Conway posted a TikTok video on January 20 that has since been made private but can still be found on Twitter. It shows a woman who appears to be Kellyanne Conway being interviewed by police in the entryway of their home. One of two male officers in the clip is heard advising the woman to cut off Claudia Conway’s access to the internet and phone.
The video, captioned, “she is putting on a whole show,” has amassed more than 290,000 likes before it was made private.
The video came a day after Claudia Conway posted a series of TikTok videos Tuesday night detailing her alleged abuse by her mother, including a clip of a woman she says is Kellyanne Conway shouting, “You’re lucky your mom is pro-life.”
The videos have since gone viral and sparked a wave of public concern. Many of Claudia Conway’s 1.6 million followers have encouraged her in the comment sections to contact Child Protective Services.
The teen later responded in a now-deleted video claiming CPS “interviewed my whole family and they didn’t do s***. Pierre from Child Protective Services, if you’re watching this, you failed me.”
Claudia Conway is one of four children of Kellyanne and George Conway. She made headlines last summer when she used social media to post anti-Donald Trump messages while her mother worked as a White House adviser. Kellyanne Conway resigned from that role in August 2020, according to Insider, citing what was best “for her children and family.”
Kellyanne Conway has not publicly addressed the recent TikTok videos or the apparent police visit.

Videos Show a Woman Identified by Claudia Conway as Her Mother Berating & Belittling Her
Claudia Conway posted a series of now-private TikTok videos on January 19 appearing to show tense confrontations between her and her mother. Several of the clips suggest they were recorded when she was sick with COVID-19 last fall. Claudia Conway previously accused her mother, who tested positive for the virus after attending the October Rose Garden event for Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, of infecting her.
The first compilation of videos, featuring the overlay text, “A COVID recap with Kelly,” showcased a woman identified by the teen as Kellyanne Conway cursing and yelling at her.
In one clip, the woman said, “I can get you taken out of here today,” after shouting, “F*** you, f*** you. It’s over, it’s over — I don’t care who’s following you, dumba**.”
The same woman in several other clips claimed her daughter couldn’t catch COVID-19 from “the president” and called her an “ungrateful b****.”
The second compilation, which garnered over 700,000 likes, features the same voice telling the teen, “You’re never gonna record another f****** thing in your life, it’s going for a forensic analysis.”
Claudia Conway Says She Isn’t Looking to ‘Hate on’ Her Mom
In several now-private follow-up TikTok videos, Claudia Conway explained she isn’t looking to “hate on” her mom. She expressed that she only wants to share her story and shed light on the situation.
“I want to add a little context to what I just posted,” the 16-year-old stated in one now-private video. “I’m not looking to hate on my mom, I just think it’s important to tell my side of the story and my experience.”
She added, “I was just going through some videos, I have hundreds and hundreds of videos just like that. I thought it was important because, as a woman who has such power in this country, I don’t think people know how she is.”
Claudia Conway also expressed in a separate video that has also been made private that she does not want to be painted by the media as a “rebellious teenager,” saying:
They like to call me a rebellious teenager, or whatever, who’s making up s***, but I’m not. I’m not making up anything I’m just telling my side of the story and showing what I have and I’m not trying to cause anything. I just think it was important to make that public.
On January 22, she posted a video apology on TikTok, saying in part, “I’m in no way, shape or form trying to get anyone in my family in trouble. … I will not be causing all this situation further, because there’s nothing I can do about it. … Thank you for the support, but I’m not trying to get my mom in trouble or start drama or become a headline. So, just spread love.”
