As The Blast previously reported, Lil Tay’s Instagram account was reactivated yesterday by someone claiming to have worked with her in the past. In a series of posts, the person claims Lil Tay’s disappearance from the public eye was due to her father, Chris Hope.
In a new post, the person claims Lil Tay and her mom were planning to fly to Florida for a charity event with XXX.
The person writes, “X got Tay and her Mom 2 plane tickets to Florida on June 18th, but Christopher John Hope refused to allow her to be a part of this event claiming that XXXTENTACION would be a negative influence on her life because of his past history.”
The anonymous writer then said that XXX would never have gone to the motorcycle shop, where he was killed, if Lil Tay had arrived in Florida as planned.
The person writes, “But since Christopher John Hope didn’t allow Tay to go to Florida, instead of going to the airport to pick Tay and her Mom up to plan for the Charity, X decided to go to the motorcycle dealership last minute after Christopher John Hope stopped everything. If Christopher John Hope had let Tay go to Florida on June 18th X would have been at the airport instead of the motorcycle dealership, and wouldve possibly not have been setup on June 18th.”
After XXX was killed, Lil Tay posted a tearful video where she described the late rapper as a father figure. In the video, she also made mention of being involved in a charity event X was planning that weekend in Florida.
Finishing the Instagram post, the anonymous writer reiterated claims against Tay’s father, writing, “Tay has big dreams and aspirations that she was willing to work hard to achieve. For the first time in her life she was happy, she felt like she was on top of the world, but then out of nowhere Christopher John Hope attempted to come back to her life only to forcefully try and drag her down by bringing her back into the dark state that he was once responsible for putting her into. I hate seeing this happen to a poor little girl that has lived a difficult life and was finally given a chance to break out of her misery, we cannot let Christopher John Hope destroy Tay. #LLJ #FreeLilTay.”
