It’s difficult to determine who is hiding under the mask, sunglasses and hood of the person filmed at the Los Angeles airport on Wednesday, but according to TMZ magazine, which follows the soap opera closely, it is indeed Lil Tay , this teenager who caused a lot of discussion in August.
Lil Tay was greeted by several media outlets who bombarded her with camera flashes and questions. “Lil Tay, how are you?” Is it true that your father faked your death? » The young girl, who was accompanied by her mother Angela Tian and brother Jason, according to TMZ, didn’t say a word before crashing into a van.
Lil Tay, who grew up in Vancouver, first experienced internet fame in 2018 at the age of 9 when he posed as a rapper and revealed his wealth. On August 9, a post on his Instagram account, apparently written by people close to him, announced his “sudden tragic death” and that of his older brother. The news went around the world. The next day, TMZ published an article claiming that Lil Tay was alive and that her account had been hacked.
On Tuesday, another twist: A photo of Lil Tay’s father, lawyer Christopher Hope, was posted (and since deleted) on the young girl’s Instagram account. The photo was accompanied by a defamatory message, which specifically claimed that the young girl’s father was the author of the hoax about Lil Tay’s death, which the main party denied.
Lil Tay, now 14, is at the center of a legal battle between her parents. According to Insider magazine, the girl’s Instagram page has been used in the past for a smear campaign against her father.
