LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Lark Voorhies' publicist says the actress does not have lupus, contrary to a fake Instagram post attributed to Voorhies claiming she has the autoimmune disease.
"Lark has never been diagnosed with lupus. It's upsetting her that people are coming out about it," her representative told People magazine.
"She doesn't want to be perceived as someone faking an illness."
Voorhies, 41, has largely stayed out of the spotlight since starring on the sitcom Saved By the Bell from 1988 to 1993. She occasionally makes headlines for her erratic behavior and changes to her appearance. The actress is in the midst of a divorce from music engineer Jimmy Green, whom she married in April.
Her publicist said Voorhies is not on Instagram.
