Ted Cruz's Daughter Caroline Speaks Out After Reported Hospitalization - Watch Now

Ted Cruz‘s daughter is breaking her silence after making headlines.

On Tuesday night (December 6), it was reported that Caroline – the 14-year-old daughter of the 51-year-old Texas senator – was rushed to the hospital reportedly due to self-inflicted stab wounds.

The following night, Caroline took to TikTok to address the situation.

“I wanted to address this on my own because the media is completely altering the story and causing my mental health to be exploited for their gain,” Caroline started. “Honestly I think it’s sick that they’re using a 14-year-old as a publicity tool.”

“I also don’t enjoy the assumptions on why I did what I did,” Caroline continued. “No, it had nothing to do with my sexuality or my father. I’m not suicidal, but I am experiencing some mental issues and I’m working through it and getting the help I need.”

Caroline concluded, “Thank you so much for all of the support and love. It means a lot to me, but the most traumatizing part about this experience is how public it’s been. I’m feeling a lot better and I’m so happy to have a great support system, but I would prefer if y’all didn’t make bold statements about what this is when you truly have no idea what is going on. Love y’all, thanks.

In the caption, Caroline wrote, “Before yall ask yes I am reading from a script, had a lot to say and I wanted to say it right so I’m sorry if it sounds superficial.”

Despite her caption, one person commented on the video, writing, “the way this feels a lil forced babe.”

Caroline responded, writing, “idk how to make it not seem that way I have a message I wanna share – doubt either of my parents would be happy that I posted this.”

Along with Caroline, Sen. Cruz and wife Heidi share 11-year-old daughter Catherine.

Sen. Cruz has not yet publicly addressed the situation.
