Lil Tay speaks out on viral death hoax as she returns to social media

She's made some major claims against her father

Lil Tay has taken to social media to talk about the viral death hoax which happened earlier this year and accused her father of being 'abusive'.

Back in August, the Instagram account of rapper and social media star Lil Tay, real name Tay Tian, announced that the girl who had found viral fame in 2018 was dead.

A brief statement had been posted online calling her death 'entirely unexpected' but it turned out that the whole thing was a hoax.

However, her family soon said she was alive and well and Lil Tay claimed she'd been the victim of a hack, talking about a 'very traumatizing 24 hours' where loved ones had been duped and had called trying to figure out what was going on.

Now, she's spoken out about the whole thing along with a promotion of 'Sucker 4 Green', her first single in several years.

Lil Tay posted a series of livestreams to Instagram showing her playing a number of musical instruments before she made a number of claims against her father, Christopher Hope, as well as his partner, Hanee Hope.

Lil Tay said her mother had spent 'all of her life's savings to support me' before expressing a desire to move on, saying: "I’m free now. I just dropped my music video. I’m ready to move on, I’m done with this."

In a statement given to TMZ, Christopher Hope refuted the allegations made against him and said the claims were '100% false'.

She was seen in public for the first time in years, and after a death hoax.

He said: "The person who is responsible for that Instagram post, as well as anyone repeating the completely false and libelous accusation within it, are virtually certain to become defendants in a defamation lawsuit.

"Everything stated is 100% false, and I trust that this should be obvious to anyone who knows me or the long history of absurd and untrue statements made by the various people who have controlled the Instagram account."

UNILAD have contacted Christopher Hope for further comment.
