After the singer’s Instagram account shared that she died, her management also confirmed her death to Variety Aug. 9.
Yet, her dad Christopher and her former manager Harry told Insider they could not confirm or deny the news.
“Given the complexities of the current circumstances, I am at a point where I cannot definitively confirm or dismiss the legitimacy of the statement issued by the family,” Harry said in a statement. “This situation calls for cautious consideration and respect for the sensitivities involved. My commitment remains focused on delivering updates that are both reliable and appropriately timed.”
Then, on Aug. 10, Tay issued a message through her family to TMZ saying she was alive.
