Controversies & Scandals
Simply Liv became the subject of much criticism and online hate following an incident that occurred in mid-2016. She and Annie LeBlanc of the Bratayley family, who is also a gymnast, had become fast friends during their days in the Coral Girls. In 2015, Annie’s older brother, Caleb, passed away of natural causes at the age of 13.
After this tragic incident, Simply Liv did a live broadcast on TikTok where she reportedly said that there was an open casket at Caleb’s funeral and she looked into the casket as Annie wanted her to but she fled soon after as she was too scared. She further added that she didn’t cry at the funeral as she was feeling numb and as she had already cried earlier.
Further, the Bratayley family subsequently released statements on social media criticizing Simply Liv and her parents. Billy LeBlanc, Annie and Caleb’s father, wrote that she was lying to gain more followers and hoped that in future her parents would be able to “take the responsibility to monitor her actions better in this very public forum.” Her friendship Annie suffered and in July 2016, she closed all her social media accounts.
