Lil Tay seeking internet fame again after death hoax

Rapper Lil Tay — subject of a major death hoax last week — is bound for internet glory, if her mother has anything to do with it.

Angela Tian has been granted nine years of back child support, as well as sole decision-making powers concerning the 14-year-old, her lawyers told TMZ.

The roughly $275,000 is coupled with the monthly child support Christopher Hope must pay from here on out.

Tian’s camp also said Tay is no longer subject to a 2018 court order, obtained by her father, that stopped her from making internet content.

“I have been financially ruined fighting for my daughter’s rights and freedom which should have never been taken away to begin with,” Tian told the outlet. “We have won our case in court and my children and I can finally move on from this nightmare.”

Without Hope’s “disgusting financial motivation” influencing Tay’s life, Tian said the teen “can pursue and achieve her dreams on her own terms, and we are finally a happy family again, together.”

Hope’s court order has also forced Tay to uproot her life in L.A. and move back to Vancouver, according to the outlet.

Last week, Tay — who skyrocketed to viral fame at age 8 — returned to the news cycle when a statement posted to her Instagram account falsely claimed she and older brother Jason Tian had died.

Tay told TMZ the following day that she was alive and “completely heartbroken” over the hoax, which she attributed to someone hacking her profile. Meta, which owns the social media app, confirmed Tay’s story, noting it had helped her regain control of the account.
