"It is unfortunate that claims are being made to the media that Paul’s daughter Meadow was at the event on Saturday when the accident occurred," Walker's representatives wrote on his Facebook page and confirmed to TODAY. "We want to clarify that Paul went to the event alone. Meadow was not at the charity event on Saturday and thankfully, did not witness the accident. Any claims stating otherwise are inaccurate." 

The post also addressed Facebook pages and Twitter accounts purporting to belong to Walker's daughter, saying all are hoaxes.

"Sadly, there’s also numerous people creating fake social media profiles claiming to be Meadow," the post reads. "We would like everyone to know that Meadow does not currently have any public profiles and is not currently active on social media. We ask that her privacy be respected at this time."

Walker, 40, and his friend Roger Rodas, 38, were killed when the red Porsche they were traveling in crashed in Valencia, Calif. Walker had been attending an event for Reach Out Worldwide, a charity he co-founded in 2010.

Meadow, 15, moved in with her father in 2011 after living with her mother in Hawaii, Entertainment Weekly reports. In August, the actor told GQ it was his daughter's encouragement that kept him acting when he had thought about leaving the profession.
