Update: Jim Lew, director of business development for Pacific Place Group, has now told media outlets Angela Tian resigned before she could be fired.
The mother of Lil Tay—a tiny, foul-mouthed kid with a penchant for making it rain for her 1.7 million Instagram followers—has been fired from her job at a Vancouver real estate agency.
Earlier this week, VICE published a story explaining who Lil Tay is; in short she’s a nine-year-old girl who appears to have a shitload of money and luxury cars she isn’t able to drive. On, in her words, the “youngest flexer of the century!”
Lil Tay’s antics include taunting other people for not being as wealthy as she is (“Bitch, I just bought a Lamborghini! Y’all bitches can’t afford this shit, OK?”) and beefing with her counterpart Bhad Bhabie aka the “cash me ousside” girl.
But it seems the recent headlines about Lil Tay have resulted in her mom, Vancouver real estate agent Angela Tian, being fired. Tian has at times been seen filming her daughter in the backdrop of her videos. Tian’s former firm Pacific West Realty confirmed to VICE they terminated her employment last week; she had worked there for six months.
“When we found out about this activity last week we had to dismiss her,” Jim Lew, director of business development for Pacific Place Group, told Daily Hive, noting the behaviour in Lil Tay’s videos has “no place” in the real estate industry. VICE reached out to Lew and confirmed Tian is no longer with the company.
Judging by the fat stacks of USD Lil Tay enjoys flashing, she may be able to help her mom out.
