Rapper and influencer Bhad Bhabie once admitted how she only found out the truth about her Dr Phil episode when she was 19.
She appeared on an 2016 episode titled 'I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime' with her mum, who was said to be concerned about Bregoli’s out of control behavior.
And it was one particular segment that stood out to viewers, as she uttered the infamous line ‘cash [sic] me outside, how 'bout that?'.
This subsequently led to Bregoli going viral and being the name everyone knows about today.
However, because she was whisked off to a camp for troubled teens in Utah called Turn-About Ranch straight after the show, Bregoli said she had no idea that she’d become a meme.
And once she had found out about how she propelled herself into fame, the rapper was not exactly best pleased, to say the least.
Speaking on Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low With EmRata podcast earlier this year, Bregoli said: “Imagine you get home from being in this f**king f**ked up place for f**king six months and then you open your phone and go on Facebook and all you see is yourself, and you’re 13.”
She went on to say that she was left thinking: “I didn’t kill nobody. I didn’t touch nobody kid. I didn’t kill no puppy. Why am I here? Even the worst of the worst don't get treated like that.”
And Bregoli claimed that she didn't find out the whole truth about her appearance until she was 19.
“I actually found out on my 19th birthday that my mom had been emailing Dr. Phil since I was two years old,” she claimed.
“My mom is a very narcissistic person and, you know narcissists, they like a crowd - figuratively and literally, they like a crowd. Because they feel like, ‘Well I can't convince the people who really know me, so I can convince others of whatever narrative I want to play.’”
But Bregoli didn’t let newly-found viral fame go to waste - since appearing on the show, she’s launched a rap career and then, as soon as she turned 18, signed up to OnlyFans where she charges $23.99 a month for a subscription to her account.
According to Forbes, she reportedly pulled in $1 million just six hours after joining the platform.
She was later asked by Caleb Pressley for Barstool Sports' Sundae Conversation whether those who subscribed to her OnlyFans right away 'should be in jail', to which she replied: "Yeah."
