Danielle Bregoli Net Worth – How The ‘Cash Me Outside’ Girl Achieved Fame and Fortune
As stated above, Danielle Bregoli‘s appearance on the Dr. Phil segment titled “I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime” on the 14th of September 2016 was what gave rise to the launch of her career. The Boynton Beach, Florida native appeared alongside her mother Barbara Ann Bregoli who came on the show to discuss her daughter’s behavior. The young girl was said to have been indulging in numerous delinquent acts, one of which occurred during the filming of the episode as she stole a crew member’s car.
While answering questions from the show’s host, people in the audience laughed at the way she was answering questions, which visibly irritated her. This led her to respond to them by saying the now-famous catchphrase, challenging them to a fight outside the studio. As things would later pan out, the clip of her using the catchphrase inspired a 2017 single that was recorded by DJ Suede The Remix God. The song proved to be quite successful as it entered the Billboard Hot 100, Streaming Songs, and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts and led to a series of YouTube dance videos.
In the following months, due to the popularity of the catchphrase, many companies attempted to use it, however, they were met with lawsuits from Danielle Bregoli and her mother for infringing on her intellectual property rights. Multinational retail corporation Walmart was also threatened with a lawsuit as it also used her catchphrase on its T-shirts.
Music manager Adam Kluger, who received backlash from industry insiders for his decision, went on to sign Danielle Bregoli in early 2017 as her net worth at the time had skyrocketed to $200 thousand. The Cash Me Outside girl went on to release her first single titled “These Heaux” on August 24, 2017. The song was well-received as it reached number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100, making the then-fourteen-year-old the youngest female rap artist to debut on the music chart.
By this time, music executives could no longer afford to not pay attention to her music as Atlantic Records went on to sign her to a multi-million album recording contract. Bhad Bhabie, as she was now being referred to, would go ahead to remix a few songs by popular musicians before releasing her now RIAA Gold-certified second single titled “Hi Bich” on September 22, 2017, which debuted at number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
To celebrate her 15th birthday, Danielle Bregoli released another single, “Gucci Flip Flops” on March 26, 2018. The song debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart at number 80 after she had supported it with a video and went on a tour across North America and Europe with artist Asian Doll. Her efforts earned her a 2018 Billboard Music Award nomination for Best Female Rap Artist alongside heavyweights like Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.
Thanks to all she has since been able to achieve, releasing a mixtape titled 15 and featuring notable artists like Kodak Black and Ty Dolla Sign, Danielle Bregoli’s net worth has become the envy of many people as she now hopes to have a long career that will put her among the greats when it is all said and done.
