Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
Lark Voorhies is having a hard time maintaining control of her social media.
Questionable things about Lark keep popping up on Instagram, but one of the most recent posts grabbed tons of attention because it was about her health. In a post from an unverified account that went up on Thursday, someone posing as the “Saved By The Bell” star told her followers that she’s got lupus.

Once Lark found out about this her people immediately set out to shut down the rumors. They couldn’t deny the claim fast enough because the actress doesn’t want anyone to think she’s the type of person to lie about her health.
“Lark has never been diagnosed with lupus. It’s upsetting her that people are coming out about it,” Lark‘s rep told People.com. “She doesn’t want to be perceived as someone faking an illness.”
Lark‘s camp added that there are several unverified accounts on Instagram that don’t belong to her.
The actress then went to do some damage control on her actual account. She told fans about the alleged breach in her online identity, adding that she may not be as active on the app until she can’t the issue sorted out.
This isn’t the first time that she’s used the “my account was hacked” line. Last month, she claimed that someone had taken over her Instagram account after a post that said a lot of nasty things about her ex-husband.
But, the picture sharing platform isn’t the only problem. Her rep revealed, “Somebody has hacked her Twitter account to the point she is shutting it down.”
