The mystery of Instagram star Lil Tay’s origins has stumped the internet ever since the foul-mouthed nine-year-old started flashing money bands on the ‘Gram. With an explicit vocabulary that has NO business flowing from a child who looks like she still needs a booster seat, Lil Tay has both captivated and horrified her 1.6 million Instagram followers into checking her page daily to see what will come out of her mouth next.
In addition to claiming status as the self-proclaimed “youngest flexer of the century,” the single-digit minor has stayed steady grindin’ while cultivating a burgeoning rap career.
Recently making headlines for scrapping with Danielle Bregoli aka Bhad Bhabie while clinging to the shadow of the equally repulsive viral star Woah Vicky, it seems that there’s no limit to just how low Tay will sink to score more likes and views. Thankfully, internet sleuths uncovered the identity of the nine-year-old’s mother and now have a target for their criticism and disgust.
Lil Tay’s Instagram rants got her mom fired
After Googling the booking number on Lil Tay’s official page, online detectives quickly traced it back to Angela Tian, the same woman present in several of the viral star’s Instagram videos. A real estate agent in Vancouver, Tian’s profession also explains why many of her daughter’s videos are filmed in vacant, high-end homes.
some tea for y’all that keep up with lil tay. apparently her mother, Angela Tian, is a real estate agent who sells luxury homes. all of lil tay’s videos are filmed at client homes just before they move in, she uses client/rented cars and flashes client/company money

Encouraging her daughter to say the N-word on camera and flex stacks of cash that aren’t hers, Tian is an equally terrible mother AND manager. In a satisfying turn of events, Tian’s terrible parenting skills ended up costing the real estate professional her job.
“When we found out about this activity last week we had to dismiss her,” wrote Jim Lew, director of business development for Pacific Place Group, in an email to the Daily Hive. “There is no place for this sort of activity in our industry. Angela has only been a realtor with our brokerage firm for only six months.”
Hopefully this IRL punishment for her daughter’s online behavior marks the beginning of the end of Lil Tay’s talentless claim to fame.
Lil tays mom got fired for enabling her daughters behavior lol…good for her. Someone should slap her for raising a little brat
