Teenage internet sensation Lil Tay may NOT be dead…social media calls it a big hoax!!

Lil Tay’s obituary yesterday may have been fake. A person claiming to be the 14-year-old social media star reportedly took to her so-called “new” Instagram page last night and Wednesday night:

“We are not dead, everything was taken from me and my brother. Please repost it and make it public. My parents are sick people.”

Yesterday, dozens of “media” sites published an unconfirmed report that viral YouTube star and aspiring rapper Claire Hope, aka Lil Tay, had died suddenly at the age of 14. The “news” came from a message posted to her Instagram account.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the devastating news of the sudden and tragic death of our beloved Claire. We have no words to express the unbearable loss and indescribable pain. This result was completely unexpected and shocked us all.”

The statement also claimed that Claire’s brother had also passed away and that his death “adds an even more unimaginable depth to our grief.”

Lil Tay went viral in 2018 at the age of 11 when she pretended to be a millionaire living in million dollar penthouses.

So what happened? Well, no one knows for sure, but Media Take Out confirmed that Lil Tay and her brother were in the middle of a bitter legal battle with their parents over the rights to the “Lil Tay” name and associated social media accounts.

Someone other than Lil Tay and her new managers wrote these posts about her death.
