Lil Tay’s Livestream Update
During the livestream that came after, Tay showed off her musical instrument skills which included her playing a piano rather elegantly, an acoustic guitar, and an electric guitar, along with some vocal chords.
However, once her musical introduction came to an end, the star provided an update as to where she’s been and most importantly what’s been going on between her and her father.
In summary, Tay claims that her father, Chris Hope, only got involved in her life once she started getting famous back at the beginning of her viral years, along with stating her father managed to acquire custody of her for a relatively long period of her childhood.
Tay alleges that her father abused and mistreated her during the chapter of her life when he had custody of her, with details of both physical and mental abuse – something that Tay and her brother have alleged in the past on social media.
Tay also dived into the recent death hoax that occurred a couple of months ago, claiming that the hoaxed online post was created and posted by her father, with details of a person she says has been claiming to others that they’re her ex-manager.
Tay stated during the livestream that this person has been lying along with alleging that this person is working with her father, stating that they wanted to fake her death to cash in on a crypto scheme. However, specific details of this weren’t fully explained or made clear.
Tay added that her mother now has full custody over her again and that she just wants to move on and focus on her music career, something she’s wanted to do for a while now. Tya also defended her mother during the stream, stating that she has been her biggest supporter throughout her life.
As per TMZ, Tay’s father denies all claims of abuse and “strongly suggested” that he will be taking legal action against “whoever was putting his kid up to this.”
