A few years ago, a young teenager became an internet sensation after she first appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil. Danielle Bregoli, also known by the stage name Bhad Bhabie, is currently an American rapper and internet personality when she was known by saying an infamous phrase many people know today as “Catch me outside, how about that.” Bregoli was born on March 26, 2003 in Boynton Beach, Florida to Barbara Ann Bregoli and Ira Peskowitz. Her mother is of Italian descent and her father is Jewish. However, soon after her birth, Bregoli’s mother and father separated and Bregoli was raised in a Catholic household by only her mother. She is currently still estranged from her father, who is known to work for the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office.
Bregoli was first known on an episode of Dr. Phil known as “I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime” on September 14, 2016. Bregoli’s mother wanted to discuss her daughter’s behavior on the show. During the show, the audience was laughing at Bregoli’s actions, and she became frustrated with the audience and said to the audience “Catch me outside, how about that?” She said this to try to challenge the audience to a fight outside of the studio, but later her signature line became a meme and she became known as the “Cash Me Outside’ Girl” due to the way she pronounced her words. During the initial filming, Bregoli was also known to have stolen one of the crew members’ car. Due to Bregoli’s actions from her initial filming, she reappeared again on the show without an audience on February 10, 2017. Bregoli was also involved in two public instances in February 2017 when she and her mother boarded a flight with another female airline passenger. The female passenger accused Bregoli’s mother of taking too much time to put her belongings into the overhead bin, so Bregoli punched the female passenger in the face, and the three of them were removed from the flight and were permanently banned from Spirit airlines for life. Bregoli was also involved in a fight outside of a bar during this month.
On March 4, 2017, a single inspired and based on Bregoli’s appearance on Dr. Phil was recorded by DJ Suede The Remix God and entered the Billboard Hot 100 Streaming Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. The single rose to popularity with many series of dance videos in relation to the single being released on Youtube
While Bregoli’s signature catchphrase was quickly catching on to the internet, many companies were infringing her intellectual property rights. Bregoli and her mother sued three companies and threatened Walmart for using her signature catchphrase without pre- approved consent. Bregoli was nominated for the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards in the “Trending” category for her catchphrase. Also, after her appearance on Dr. Phil, Bregoli had to spend time at a Utah ranch for “troubled teens.” After her time in Utah, Bregoli was later arrested and pleaded guilty of charges of grand theft, marijuana possession, and false police report and was to receive a sentence to five years probation in July 2017. However, Bregoli hired a new lawyer and her probation ended much earlier in March of 2018.
In early 2017, Bregoli began her music career when she was signed by music manager Adam Kluger. Although initially she received industry backlash, she came through when she released her first single “These Heaux” on August 24, 2017. Her first single reached number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the youngest female rap artist to debut music on the chart. Her success of her first single allowed her to sign into a multi-album recording contract with Atlantic Records. A month later in September, Bregoli released “Hi Bich”, which hit number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100, and she also released “Whachu Know” as a music video which received over 3 million views within 24 hours. In many of her music videos, viewers can see Bregoli wearing gold grillz. On March 26, 2018, Bregoli celebrated her birthday by releasing “Gucci Flip Flops” featuring Lil Yachty. Two days later, she received a gold certification from the RIAA for “Hi Bich”. On April 14, 2018, Bregoli began her first tour across North America and Europe with Asian Doll. On May 2, 2018, her music video for “Gucci Flip Flops” released and the song debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart at number 80. She also received the 2018 Billboard Music Award nomination in the category for Best Female Rap Artist alongside Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. On August 15, 2018, Bregoli received gold certification from the RIAA for “Gucci Flip Flops”. On November 16, 2018, Bregoli began her second and third segments of her tour on the west coast of U.S. and Australia and New Zealand.
It was later known that in 2018, Bregoli spent $40,000 on a custom gold grillz. Earlier this year in January 2019, Bregoli released
“Babyface Savage” featuring Tory Lanez and “Bestie” featuring Kodak Black. Her song received much recognition and likes that it charted on Canada and also on Bubbling Under Hot 100 in the U.S., which extended her record of being the youngest female to have more entries in over 20 years. Also in January 2019, Bregoli announced an endorsement deal with Copycat Beauty and promoted the brand’s products on to her music videos on social media. The contract openly stated that Bregoli would make $900,000 in addition to a percentage of the sales for 6 months. After 6 months, it was noted that the deal was successful with the company’s sales spiking by reaching 500,000 on only the first day. Bregoli also released a trailer of her new reality show Bringing Up Bhabie which would feature details of her daily life and music career. The show is to be released as Snap Originals on Snapchat for 12 episodes for the first season. TMZ later reported that within the first 24 hours, there were ratings of over 10 million viewers. In addition, Bregoli is reported to make well over $10 million in 2019.
This teenager is doing very well during her first few years of fame, and she’s doing it right with some gold teeth bling.
