The mansion of the ‘Queen of Versailles’ star damaged by Hurricane Ian

“Queen of Versailles” star Jackie Siegel says Hurricane Ian destroyed parts of her Florida mansion, causing $10 million in damage.

The 56-year-old socialite provided TMZ with photos of the destruction, including collapsed ceilings.

Siegel explained that the damage is so extensive because she recently added 24-carat gold moldings to her living room, which is now partially falling to the floor.

As a result of the hurricane, construction on the 90,000 square meter estate has been halted.

Siegel said several floors in the house are flooded and her back patio looks like a lake.

She thinks pumping out the water will cost about $100,000.

The Orlando area property is said to be ready in May 2023, according to the former model, but it appears that date has now been pushed back.

Jackie and her husband, timeshare mogul David Siegel, began building their estate on the shore of Lake Butler, Florida in 2004.

The pair rose to fame with the 2012 documentary ‘The Queen of Versailles’ which documented their struggle to build the house after David – the owner of Westgate Resorts – was hit by the 2008 recession.

Despite the financial setbacks, Jackie told TMZ in Friday’s story that she is determined to finish the lavish house and said it will be a “masterpiece.”

Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno announced earlier this week that hundreds of deaths are feared after the tragic natural disaster.
