“We have no words to express the unbearable loss and indescribable pain. This outcome was entirely unexpected, and has left us all in shock,” the post continued. The cause of death while not revealed, Tay’s parents stated that it is under investigation.
Who are Lil Tay’s parents?
Lil Tay’s real name is Claire Hope. Her mother is Angela Tian and her father is Christopher J. Hope. The two have been wealthy for most of their lives. Their luxurious lifestyle paved the way for their youngest daughter to become a famous social media influencer. She also found success in the music industry by becoming one of the youngest rappers in the business.
Angela Tian was first a real estate agent. But following her daughter becoming viral, she was reportedly fired from her company. But Tian denied these claims during an interview with Good Morning America.
Tay’s father Christopher J. Hope had taken up multiple professions. He is an attorney who works at the Vancouver-based law firm Lindsay LLP. He is also a pilot and is also an author.
The fans are suspicious about the sudden death of Lil Tay. While not yet proven, there have been suspicions on the Hope family that they had been beating the 14-year-old and torturing her.
Another controversial influencer is Andrew Tate. He had been under house arrest along with his brother. But he had been released following a Judge’s ruling. Just like the former kickboxer, Tay also has been under house arrest. But the young influencer and rapper has never revealed the reason behind the said house arrests.
Given the fact that her brother’s demise was also mentioned during the post, there are some speculations that Tay’s parents may have played a part in her untimely passing. People want both Angela Tian and Christopher J. Hope to be the first ones investigated for the unexpected demise of Tay. Fans found it fishy that both her brother and she had unexpectedly passed away.
The police are investigating Tay’s demise. The public need to wait a little longer to get an update on the investigation.
