Mum of Brit model who died falling from Aussie selfie cliff hits back at trolls

The heartbroken mum of a British Instagram model who tragically plunged to her death at a notorious tourist hotspot dubbed the "selfie cliff" has hit back at trolls.

Madalyn Davis, 21, plunged 100ft from a cliff after climbing over a fence to pose for an Insta-worthy sunrise photo in Diamond Bay near Sydney.

Hundreds of tributes have poured in for the young girl whose body was recovered by Australian search and rescue divers hours after she slipped.

But Madalyn's devastated mum has lashed out at "nasty people" who have mocked the 21-year-old for being "self obsessed."

Hitting back at trolls Rebecca Smith said: "My daughter was not self-obsessed she was a wonderful beautiful person that made a mistake.

“How can you write such things? She has a little sister and brother who be reading this.

“Madalyn was loved, she had integrity and decency.

“If you need to believe otherwise in order to feel better about yourself then that’s your pain.

“Fill your boots you nasty people, you are the one that has to sleep with yourself at night.”

The devastated mum also posted photos of her daughter on Instagram as floods of tributes came in from friends and family.

Rebbeca added: "She always wanted to be famous so thank you trolls you are making this happen."

Madalyn quit her job as a makeup artist to go travelling last year, regularly sharing trip highlights with her 20,000 Instagram followers.

Days before she died the 21-year-old uploaded a picture of herself licking an ice cream in Sydney's Bondi beach.

On the day of the tragic accident Madalyn had been to a posh party in suburb Vaucluse before she and seven friends went to see the sunrise over the ocean.

It is believed the beauty fell from the cliffs at Diamond Bay around 6.30am on Sunday and rescuers recovered her body in the water hours later.

Family friend Lydia Woodward jumped to the young girls defence and said: "Maddy had been at a party and then they all went to this cliff to take pictures.

"It appears that Maddy was sitting on the cliff edge to have her picture taken when she fell – it is such a tragedy."
