Viral YouTube Star Lil Tay Dead at 14


Instagram

Viral YouTube star and aspiring rapper Claire Hope, aka Lil Tay, died suddenly at age 14, according to a message posted on her Instagram account.

“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.

The statement mentioned Claire’s brother also passed away and his death “adds an even more unimaginable depth to our grief.” Both of their deaths are under investigation.

Lil Tay went viral in 2018 at age 11 by pretending to be a millionaire trust fund kid living in million-dollar penthouses.

She was dubbed “InstaBrat” on Instagram where she flaunted cash and luxury cars. She gained over 3 million Instagram followers.

But Lil Tay was busted when a Vancouver, Canada blog broke the story that Lil Tay was a fraud.

Her mom, a real estate agent named Angela, was fired after her employer saw Lil Tay yelling profanities in a penthouse that was supposed to be vacant and listed for sale on Realtor.com.

As a real estate agent, Lil Tay’s mom had access to high end vacant properties that she didn’t own.

“There is no place for this sort of activity in our industry. Angela has only been a realtor with our brokerage firm for only six months,” the agency told Dailyhive.com.

Tay’s first Instagram account was deleted in 2018. She returned to Instagram to pay tribute to slain rapper Xxxtentacion, making his picture her profile icon.
