Tran has previously opened up about her relationship with her dad. When speaking to MadamNoire in 2015, she divulged, "I don't think I've ever told anybody this, but my father is gay."
I think I never told anybody just because I don't realize that that's not necessarily normal," the Los Angeles-born artist continued. "I live my life as me, so it's just like, 'Oh, that's my dad.' "
