A Florida woman, ridiculed on social media this week for allegedly rear-ending a Lamborghini and then blaming the driver instead, has posted two new videos that change what was believed so far.

The first video, initially posted on TikTok and Instagram by the driver of the Lamborghini Matthew Heller on Monday, showed Maddy Gilsoul yelling at him for hitting her car.

“You hit my car, you did that to the front of my f***ing car,” she said, while Mr Heller laughed. “What’s funny?” the woman asked in the video. “That’s my new f***ing car,” she yelled.

Mr Heller continued to laugh and said: “Usually when you rear-end people, that’s not how this works. But now you’re saying I hit you from behind?”

“No!” Ms Gilsoul said. “You hit me in the front of it, remember? When I was at a red light? You went in front of me and hit my car.”

Mr Heller said he will call the police. His video also showed a security footage, where his white Lamborghini can be seen stopping at a petrol station, while Ms Gilsoul’s Audi hits it from behind.

The video has been viewed over 100,000 times on Instagram and made it to Reddit’s Public Freakout sub, which has 3.6 million viewers. Thousands claimed that Ms Gilsoul was merely trying to shift the blame.

However, after two days of public ridicule, Ms Gilsoul posted two videos on her TikTok account on Wednesday. These seem to support her claim that Mr Heller’s car hit her Audi first.

The first video featured another security camera footage of the white Lamborghini. The voiceover identified the driver as Matt Heller saying he “went into oncoming traffic on a red light because I didn’t turn left on yellow”. It added that Mr Heller “almost hit a person” and that her “lawyers will be serving him with slander.”

Notably, in the video posted by Mr Heller on Monday, Ms Gilsoul had said that his car almost hit a cyclist and then hit hers at the traffic light.

The second video that Ms Gisoul shared recently showed photos of her Audi while the voiceover says Mr Heller “hit me from the front” and he “side-swiped while I was on the red light”.

“Guess he didn’t want to share the whole story,” the video added.

The videos posted by Ms Gilsoul have been liked by over 50,000 people so far.
