A star was born the day that Danielle Bregoli appeared on Dr. Phil alongside her mother — and her signature phrase, “Cash Me Outside,” spawned memes and song remixes throughout the nation.
However, there is more to the 13-year-old than we see in her public persona. Check out these fun facts about your favorite viral sensation!
1. She comes from Florida
According to Palm Beach Post, Danielle is from Boynton Beach, FL.
2. She once helped her mother, Barbara Bregoli, through radiation
The same outlet reported that when she was six-years-old, she stayed by her mother’s side while she went through chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer.
3. Her father, Ira Peskowitz, is a cop
Her father works as a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy and has insisted he did not abandon her, even though she says otherwise. He has even created a GoFundMe campaign to “save” his daughter.
“I’m reaching out to the world, humbly, as a father that was estranged from my daughter, Danielle, as a result of parental alienation,” he explained. “I have always taken care of her financially but was denied the opportunity to truly be a present parent and influence in her life. As a result, Danielle and her future have been compromised with the lack of love and guidance a child needs to be able to flourish in this world.”
4. She fell victim to a death hoax after becoming an overnight celebrity.
There were rumors earlier this year that Danielle committed suicide after being bullied when the episode aired.
5. She dropped out of school in 7th grade.
That could explain the um — accent she speaks in.
6. She is already worth $150,000.
