Zack Sharf Digital News Director Lil Tay is allegedly alive. One day after the internet rapper and social media star’s management confirmed to Variety that she had died at 14 years old, her family has allegedly issued a statement to TMZ in which she says she is “safe and alive.” News of Lil Tay’s alleged death first arrived via an Aug. 9 post on her Instagram that has now been deleted.
The post also stated that her brother had died. Lil Tay’s management confirmed her death when contacted about the Instagram post. The family’s new alleged statement to TMZ claims that Lil Tay’s Instagram account “was compromised by a 3rd party and used to spread jarring misinformation and rumors” about her.
“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,” Lil Tay’s alleged statement to TMZ reads. “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,” the statement continues.
“My legal name is Tay Tian, not ‘Claire Hope.'” In the original Instagram post that has since been deleted, a statement 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.
