After Lil Tay’s Instagram account “confirmed” her death, a rep for the minor says that she’s alive and her page was hacked.

Earlier this week, the Instagram page of former viral sensation Lil Tay claimed she passed away and news began to circulate that her brother allegedly died as well. There were even claims from commenters that they saw the two children die in a car wreck. Later an alleged witness would backtrack his comment and claim that a “member of his team” posted the inaccurate information. This instantly put social media on high alert that something wasn’t right.

According to TMZ, Lil Tay is alive and well and a hacker posted the “jarring misinformation” about her alleged passing.

“I want to make it clear that my brother and I are safe and alive, but I’m completely heartbroken, and struggling to even find the right words to say,” said Tay via a statement. “It’s been a very traumatizing 24 hours. All day yesterday, I was bombarded with endless heartbreaking and tearful phone calls from loved ones all while trying to sort out this mess.”

She also says,

“My Instagram account was compromised by a 3rd party and used to spread jarring misinformation and rumors regarding me, to the point that even my name was wrong. My legal name is Tay Tian, not Claire Hope.”

It’s a relief to know that Tay is okay, but some fans still have doubts because of alleged publicity stunts. the influencer rose to fame by flexing a luxurious lifestyle which eventually led to her mother being fired. Then a dispute between her parents ended with her going MIA.
