Back in March, Bhad Bhabie, aka the Dr. Phil guest who went viral and subsequently built a career out of a “Cash Me Outside” meme, turned 18. It was a momentous birthday she celebrated six days later by joining the platform OnlyFans, a move that netted her a record on the platform in only six hours. Now, the star says she could already retire on the money she made in just a few short months.
Bhad Bhabie initially broke out with a music career following her viral appearance on Dr. Phil at the age of 13, in a segment called "I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime,” and was described as being outside of her mother’s control in the episode. The subsequent fame and music career netted her a nice amount and helped her to become an influencer, amassing 16.9 million Instagram followers and product placement in music videos. She made $2 million that way, according to a recent Today interview.
Then, Bhad Bhabie turned 18 and joined OnlyFans, where she made over a million bucks in just over six hours, beating a record Bella Thorne had made headlines for hitting months before. (In Thorne’s case she made over a million in 24 hours.) Now, the star, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, has enough to pay cash for a $4 million dollar home, which she is considering doing, and says she has enough money that she could retire right now, at the ripe old age of 18.
The rapper and OnlyFans star also recently took to Instagram to share a look at how she’s self-made, giving fans a look at some of the cars and more she’s been able to purchase as part of her fame.
Though Danielle Bregoli does not seem as if she will be retiring anytime soon, she does seem to be at least fairly interested in being savvy with money. In fact, you’ll be able to cash her outside--in Florida, where the teenager plans to keep most of her property.
OnlyFans has been a lucrative platform for many stars and influences, particularly since the start of the pandemic in 2020. The platform itself has made a move to branch out from the nudity that made it a household name, and these days the subscription service seems to be thriving in a lot of different ways, with Bhad Bhabie making a chunk of her money from subscriptions, but also private messages, as well. As the platform becomes more mainstream, we'll have to wait and see if other names join as well.
