Teen rapper Lil Tay’s mother hinted at a potential comeback for the young influencer after she claimed to have emerged victorious in a custody battle.
Court battle win: Angela Tian’s legal team told TMZ that Tay’s father, Christopher Hope, had been ordered by the court to pay approximately $275,000 in child support backpay spanning back to 2014.
Tian has also reportedly been granted sole decision-making authority and primary custody of the 14-year-old online personality. The court also purportedly granted authorization for Tian to relocate with Tay outside of Vancouver if she decides to do so.
What’s next for Tay: Tian claimed that the prolonged custody battle, marked by differing visions for Tay’s career, has taken a toll on her and her daughter.
“We have won our case in court and my children and I can finally move on from this nightmare,” Tian was quoted saying. “My daughter can pursue and achieve her dreams on her own terms, and we are finally a happy family again, together.”
Speculation about Tay’s potential future endeavors has since emerged amid her return to the spotlight. The viability of a Lil Tay comeback remains to be seen as the landscape of viral content has evolved since her initial rise to fame in 2018.
