Did her newly found fame become too much for the ex-convict? Or is this all just one big publicity stunt?

Just hours before Gypsy went MIA on Instagram and X, The Blast reported on her recent spike of online activity as she shared several new posts with her 7.8M followers. However, that all changed as her verified account has been deactivated and all of those posts have been taken down.

Upon further investigation, there is a new Instagram account, with the same profile photo as the old one -- the difference? This seemingly new account is private and only has 70 followers.

Her hubby, Ryan Anderson, is still active on social media and has 366,000 followers. He is only following 11 people -- one of whom is the new private Gypsy Rose account.

While she no longer has a public Instagram page, and she has seemingly deleted her X account, many think she will be back soon and the entire thing is a publicity stunt for attention.

Gypsy Rose Becomes Latest Internet Sensation

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, the now 32-year-old, was released from prison after serving seven years behind bars for co-conspiring to kill her mother.

For those who are unaware, Gypsy Rose is believed to be a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, which is a psychological disorder where "children whose mothers produce histories of illness to their children and who support such histories by fabricated physical signs and symptoms, or even by alter laboratory tests."

According to medical records shown in the 2017 docuseries, ‘Mommy Dead and Dearest’, Gypsy's mother, Dee Dee, took her daughter to the hospital over 100 times from 2005 to 2014 and convinced doctors to perform multiple surgeries on Gypsy, which were later deemed unnecessary.
