Lil Tay, birth name Claire Hope was born to Christopher Hope and Angela Tian on July 29, 2007, in Atlanta, Georgia. By default, she is an American. Her earlier childhood life is not explicitly known to the public as she came in from nowhere and grabbed a piece of fame for a piece of time.
Tay’s rise to fame began in February 2018 when she uploaded a video to her Instagram account about her lifestyle. She then claimed that her Instagram account is managed by American actress Miranda Cosgrove.
In March 2018, she released her first debut single “money way” which drew more global attention. She then posted videos with her role model Lil pump and rapper Chief Keef affirming her performance with keef in his next music video.
Lil Tay lived with her mum Angela by the time she stormed the social media world in 2018 but as of now she lives with her dad as he decided she takes on homeschool classes.
By then, Angela was a realtor working with Pacific Evergreen Realty in Vancouver, Canada for a period of six month. She was fired by Mr. Lew after filming her daughter’s videos in the penthouse set out for sale and her boss’s car.
She claimed to be damn rich, boasting and hanging around with established influencers like Woah Vicky plus indulging in social media wars with Bhad Bhabie.
Lil Tay has never been arrested or jailed but she has been in courts of law as a beneficiary in child acquaintance. Once he saw that the mum is dragging his daughter’s future and fortune into some uncertain misconduct, Mr. Hope decided to involve the law in accordance with the moral motives of the child upbringing with which the court granted the dad full authority over Lil Tay.
