Dr. Phil breakout star Danielle Bregoli, also known by her rap moniker Bhad Bhabie, has exposed boxer Adrien Broner for sliding in to her Instagram DMs.
The 16-year-old Florida native screenshot Broner’s message, which read “text me crazy girl,” and shared it with her 17.2 million followers.
Bhad Bhabie later posted a meme featuring a clip of Akon and Style P’s monster hit “Locked Up,” sending a clear message to the 30-year-old elite athlete. However, Broner claims it was an honest mistake.
“Nobody want to date a kid but I fault Instagram for not having people’s age on they profile,” Broner told The Shade Room. “I thought she was grown the way she out here moving.”

Bhad Bhabie has since deleted the post. The outspoken teen originally rose to notoriety for her infamous appearance on The Dr. Phil Show in which she unwittingly birthed the “Cash Me Ousside” catchphrase. She was ultimately approached by Atlantic Records and talked into signing a record deal.
In a 2016 interview with HipHopDX, she explained how she became Bhad Bhabie.
“What would you do if you were put in the situation I was?” she said. “And your mom put you on a TV show and you came home from a program, and you didn’t even know the latest music that was out — didn’t know anything. Your mom gives you your phone and you look on the Instagram explore page, and there’s a million pictures of you? Every other picture is a picture of you with something saying, ‘Cash me ousside’ on it and you don’t even remember that you said that. Then all of sudden somebody calls you and they’re like, ‘Hey do you rap, do you sing?’ And you say no, but they wanna manage you and say, ‘I think we can make something out of you.’
“Then they fly you out to Los Angeles and they basically put you in a little Airbnb, and they take you to meet with a record label because they just want to meet you. They think that you can be an artist. They ask you if you like music, you say, ‘Yes.’ They say, ‘Okay we want to give you a record deal. You sound good.’ Are you not gonna take that?”
Despite the success of songs such as “These Heaux” and “Hi Bich,” Bhad Bhabie said she’s done with fame last month.
“I’mma keep it real, I’m not fit for this fame…I’m too real nobody can handle the truth and if being attacked for something I’mma tell the the damn truth about it and y’all can’t handle that,” she wrote on IG. “I’m back in Florida with my family living my best life. I could give two fucks about this fame shit.”
