Danielle Bregoli, also known as the “Catch Me Outside” girl and who now goes by Bhad Bhabie these days in her stab at a music career seems to want to end 2017 on a great note at least where her mom is concerned.
The 14- year old, who rose to fame on an episode of Dr. Phil titled “I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime” and coined her catchphrase during the question and answer portion with audiences gave her mom a check for $65,274 over Christmas.
Bregoli shared the exchange on her Instagram.
The card reads: “Merry Christmas Motha, thanks for everything. Use this for whatever you want or pay the house.”
While Danielle may not have come into public consciousness in the most pleasant of ways, earning Internet fame for the blatant disrespect towards her mother Barbara, we at least know she’s trying.
She’s already had several endeavors since coming into the spotlight: releasing merchandise with her catchphrase on it, paid appearances on radio and television, and trying her hand at a music career.
She’s already signed a deal with Atlantic Records, and her first single, “These Heaux,” logged 20 million YouTube views in two weeks. YouTube named her one of 2017’s rising stars with over 3 million subscribers.
Of course, the Internet had something to say over her gesture, with some not entirely happy with how she addresses her mother in the video.
“That’s so sweet but why say bit** to your mother!”
Another commenter added, “She might be one crazy child but she does have a bigger heart than most kids.”
However, not all of 2017 was a successful year for the teenager. In August, she was sentenced to five years of probation after she pled guilty to grand theft, grand theft auto, marijuana possession, and filing a false police report, according to this report.
The charges stem from three separate incidents in 2016 after the Danielle stole her mother’s purse and car and called the cops, falsely reporting that Barbara had been using heroin.
Danielle and her mom relocated to California from Florida, where she will be able to complete probation.
