Sad news as the family of former viral sensation Lil Tay aka The Youngest Flexer says she has passed away at the age of 14. Tay had a crazy rise to stardom back in 2018 at just 9 years old with her vulgar but hilarious videos and beef with Bhad Bhabie (the catch me outside girl).
This was an absolutely wild era in internet history. Tay, Bhad Bhabie, Rice Gum, Whoa Vicky...they were all doing huge numbers by flexing how rich they were and talking shit about each other online. I had a buddy who used to send me the videos every day and they would drive me insane. But the internet ate that shit up.
She disappeared from the spotlight a few years back and was only really heard from when her brother (who has also reportedly passed away) started a GoFundMe saying their father was trying to take away their finances and custody.
Dexerto - My sister Tay has been silent on social media for the past 3 years because her absentee father (Chris Hope) served my mother a court order demanding control over Tay's money, career, and custody, and as a result it was court ordered that my sister had to return to Vancouver, Canada. He also requested through a court order to prevent her from speaking out about the truth. Since then he has stolen millions of dollars from my sister and has taken control of all her funds. He has signed million dollar deals and taken all of Tay's money for himself, he has spent millions buying himself and his wife (Hanee Hope) a new mansion, speed boat, nice cars, trips to spas, salons, fancy restaurants, trips to Egypt, Dubai, Mexico, Philippines, Hawaii, the UK, Paris, designer clothing and jewelry/watches from head to toe, they have been living a lavish lifestyle for the past 3 years off of Tay's money.
A wild and tragic turn of events for sure.
During her meteoric rise Tay was known for her profanity-laced, braggadocios rants talking about how much of a baller she was and how broke everyone else was. Also, she was just 9-years old. If those sentences sounded ridiculous when you read them then you should watch the videos because they were next-level internet nuts.
She appeared in videos with Chief Keef, Jake Paul, and plenty of other influencers in what will easily go down as one of the weirdest eras in internet history.
Either way she was way too young to pass. No one should be gone before they even get their license. RIP to the youngest flexer and one hell of internet entertainer.
