‘There are only three things he wants to see,’ Tsang said. ‘First, no more crazy videos of cursing from Tay. Second, 25 percent of the gross earnings going to a trust fund dedicated to Tay. The third thing is, there has to be structure in her operation of her, in her public image of her.’

In an interview with the publication about her online presence of her, Lil Tay said: ‘Right now I’m in a bad situation and I don’t want to talk about these things.’

When prompted for further clarification about the situation, she simply responded: ‘With Chris Hope.’

‘I can’t believe this, the evil in the world, This isn’t good Bye. I love you Bro.’
