Lil Tay's mother 'paves way for her career comeback' following death hoax

Lil Tay’s mother’s legal representatives have issued a statement on her behalf, giving an update on the custody battle.

Last week, a now-deleted statement on the 14-year-old’s Instagram page seemingly announced that she and her brother had died.

However, she later shared a message slamming the announcement as a hack on her account, leading to a ‘traumatizing 24 hours’.

Now, it seems she could be making a career comeback.

An official statement shared to her Instagram account by MacLean Law read: ‘Lorne MacLean K.C and Fraser MacLean of MacLean Law are the Vancouver, Canada, family law attorneys for Tay Tian’s mother, Angela Tian.

‘We have been asked to clarify media confusion as to the current state of the family law proceedings, including custody, child parenting and child support.

‘Given privacy concerns related to the children, we provide a brief status update on the results in the British Columbia Supreme Court.’

The statement went on: ‘MacLean Law successfully obtained orders for our client that have enabled her daughter to advance her career, including orders for:

‘1. Retroactive child support owed by the father since 2014, amounting to approximately $275,000;

‘2. Ongoing monthly child support from the father, plus additional expenses;

‘3. Sole day-to-day and final decision-making powers and responsibilities in the best interests of Tay Tian for Ms. Tian;

‘4. Ms. Tian is the person entitled to sign contracts;

‘5. Tay Tian’s primary residence being with her mother, Ms Tian; and

‘6. Entitlement to relocate outside of Vancouver for Ms Tian and Tay Tian.’

Tay shot to fame as a child, in 2014, and amassed millions of followers thanks to Instagram videos and skits in which she flaunted her wealth.

Her page remained inactive between 2018 and 2023, before the statement of her ‘death’ was shared, with her last post being a tribute to XXXTentacion.

Many were left shocked when a statement was shared on her Instagram page on Wednesday August 9, appearing to announce that she had died.

The message, which has now been deleted, read: ‘It is with a heavy heart that we share the devastating news of our beloved Claire’s sudden and tragic passing. We have no words to express the unbearable loss and indescribable pain.

‘This outcome was entirely unexpected, and has left us all in shock. Her brother’s passing adds an even more unimaginable depth to our grief.

‘During this time of immense sorrow, we kindly ask for privacy as we grieve this overwhelming loss, as the circumstances surrounding Claire and her brother’s passing are still under investigation.

‘Claire will forever remain in our hearts, her absence leaving an irreplaceable void that will be felt by all who knew and loved her.’

However, in a statement provided to TMZ the following day, Tay claimed that her account had been hacked.

‘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,’ the teenager told the outlet.

‘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.

‘My Instagram account was compromised by a 3rd party and used to spread jarring misinformation and rumors regarding me, to the point that even my name was wrong. My legal name is Tay Tian, not “Claire Hope”.’
