The self-described “Youngest Flexer of the Century” can advance her career, thanks to a B.C. Supreme Court order. In a statement on Lil Tay’s Instagram account, MacLean Law states that her mother, Angela Tian, “is the person entitled to sign contracts” on behalf of Tay. The 14-year-old rapper has four million followers on Instagram.
Lil Tay, a.k.a. Tay Tian, burst to international attention in 2018 as a foul-mouthed, money-flinging, nine-year-old Vancouver wordsmith. That year, she appeared on the cover of Maclean’s magazine.
According to MacLean Law, her father has been ordered to pay approximately $275,000 in retroactive child support dating back to 2014. In addition, her father—who wasn’t identified in the law firm’s statement—must pay ongoing monthly child support and expenses.
Furthermore, sole day-to-day and final decision-making powers rest with Angela Tian. And Lil Tay will maintain her primary residence with her mother, who is entitled to move outside of Vancouver.
Earlier this month, Lil Tay’s Instagram account included a now-deleted statement purporting that she and her brother had died. Lil Tay subsequently granted an interview to TMZ declaring that she and her brother are safe and alive.
