Danielle Marie Bregoli, professionally known as Bhad Bhabie, is a rapper, songwriter, and internet celebrity. She was born in 2003 to Ira Peskowitz and Barbara Ann Bregoli. Her parents had dated a year before her mother became pregnant. The couple separated when Danielle was still an infant. Danielle was primarily raised by her mother in Boynton Beach, Florida. She is estranged from her father, who works for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
The young rapper’s claim to fame is rooted in her first appearance on the ‘Dr. Phil’ show back in 2016, with her mother. The main point of discussion during their appearance was to discuss Danielle’s behavior. Besides being foul-mouthed and disrespectful towards her mother, she stole a crew member’s car while the ‘Dr. Phil’ episode was being filmed. When the audience started laughing and mocking her, Danielle retorted, saying, “Catch me outside, how about that?” which in her accent sounded like, “Cash me ousside, how bout dah.”
This phrase gave birth to several memes circulated in large numbers online, and the ‘Dr.Phil’ clip became viral. Thereafter, Danielle spent some time at Turn-About Ranch, a special program in Utah to help “troubled teens.” After her experience with the program, Danielle got into a few more brawls and landed on the wrong side of the law before launching her career as a rapper. Currently, Danielle is not just a successful rapper, but she has also created other income channels, mostly using her popularity. Curious to know how this viral young talent made her money?
