Lil Tay was said to have passed away at the age of 14. The news was brought to the public via her personal Instagram account. It was also reported that her brother passed away, leaving the family struggling with their absence.
The Instagram post stated that the circumstances of Lil Tay’s death are currently under investigation. However, others have now confirmed that she is alive, and her account was hacked.
The child star rose to fame in 2018 at the age of nine. She went viral for posting videos with many different celebrities, such as Chief Keef, Lil Pump, and Bhad Bhabie. She caught everyone by surprise when she started flexing with houses, money, and cars, much like the rappers and celebrities we know and love. Lil Tay’s parents were later called out for exploiting their child for fame and money.
In 2021, Lil Tay found herself in a legal battle with her biological father. After her parents split, her father remarried and tried to obtain full custody. Her brother, Jason, who is now deceased, told the public that her father had stolen millions of dollars and owed $400,000.00 in child support.
“Scratched an repeatedly thrown Lil Tay in a dark closet,” her brother also alleged, in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Since this information was made public, Lil Tay took a hiatus from her social media accounts. Her last post on Instagram was a Facetime call between her and XXXTentacion, where she expressed her appreciation for him and grieved his passing.
We are still unaware of the details. The Vancouver Police Department has no records of her death and has not been informed. While her father refuses to provide any information on the case, we wait for more information.
A Twitter account suspected to be her brother’s claims that they are both very much alive. The account mentions the abuse she has faced from her father and accuses them of spreading misinformation to the public.
We have yet to see real proof of life or death concerning the child star. Comments have been made via TMZ.
“I want to make it clear that my brother and I are safe and alive, but I’m completely heartbroken, and struggling to even find the right words to say. It’s been a very traumatizing 24 hours. All day yesterday, I was bombarded with endless heartbreaking and tearful phone calls from loved ones all while trying to sort out this mess.”
She also added that her Instagram account was “compromised” by someone spreading insane rumors. We will continue to provide updates on the story of Lil Tay’s death hoax.
