Lil Tay Biography

Lil Tay (birth name: Claire Eileen Qi Hope) was born on 29 July 2009 in Vancouver, Canada. She was born to a Canadian father, Christopher John Hope, and a Chinese mother, Angela Tian who separated when Tay was 2 years old. Tay also has an older half-brother, Jason Tian who played a major part in her YouTube and Rap career. As a kid, Tay grew up learning various activities such as piano, ballet, swimming, singing, skating, and more. She even took Chinese lessons since her mother was Chinese. 

Lil Tay began her career in 2015 when she opened her YouTube channel and Instagram account. She started posting videos of her flexing cash, and automobiles and using excessive language in her videos which went instantly viral on social media and gained Lil Tay millions of views on her social media platforms.

Soon Lil Tay began getting profiled by famous YouTuber PewDiePie and gained massive popularity on social media platforms. She currently has 2.8 Million followers on her Instagram account. 

Her brother Jason and mother often helped Lil Tay with content and moved with Tay to Los Angeles to boost her career in the music industry. Lil Tay began her career as a rapper and released her first song in April 2018 called “Money Way” which received mixed reviews from the audience. However, Lil Tay’s social media antics and personality on the internet did not sit well with her father Christoper J. Hope, who made her move back with her and pursue the opposite career of what she was doing. 

Her father has stated she was originally born and raised in Vancouver, Canada but she falsified her hometown to Atlanta, Georgia on the internet. 

After her father issued a court order for Lil Tay to fly back to her hometown in Canada where Tay was abused by her father and family. In an interview with Hollywood Life, Lil Tay’s father claimed that when Tay’s social media went viral, he disagreed with most of the stuff she was doing on the platform. I took legal action to end those activities which I believe are endangering her bodily and emotional health and might affect her future. On July 5, 2018, Lil Tay posted a story on her Instagram account quoting “Help Me” and has since been absent from her social media accounts. As of 2023, the majority of Lil Tay’s posts are now deleted from her Instagram account and her YouTube channel. For now, she is completely away from the public eye and is living a quiet life.
