Seeing the name Danielle Bregoli may not mean too much to you. But we guarantee you know who she is - it's just you may better know her by one of her aliases. Perhaps if we say the "cash me outside" girl, you'll know who we mean? Or perhaps the rap star Bhad Bhabie? Yep, that's Danielle Bregoli - and she's back in the news again.
Bregoli is only 16-years-old and this time she's in the news for outing boxer Adrien Broner after he slid into the child's DMs...
Bregoli shared Broner's creepy message to her and he has since responded for his questionable antics.
Keep scrolling for the full story.
This is probably where most of you will know Bregoli from.She rose to fame after an appearance on Dr. Phil in September 2016, in an episode about out of control teenagers. After the audience began laughing at her, she uttered her, now infamous, line.
The initial reaction to Bregoli was... mixed, to put it politely.People just didn't know what to make of this oddly aggressive teenager - although she was quickly embraced by meme culture and became an internet sensation.
The fame she found based on her catchphrase was far-reaching."Cash me outside" was remixed into a chart-topping DJ Suede track, plus Bregoli was nominated in the MTV Movie Awards based on the phrase alone!
Since her Dr Phil appearance, Bregoli has launched a rap career.Her first single, These Heaux, reached number 77 in the Billboard hot 100, making her the youngest female rapper with a charting debut. Her live tour has had surprisingly positive reviews, too.
The video for These Heaux plays on her controversial image.And the song itself is... not bad? It seems that she may be taking her rap career more seriously than her meme roots.
She's certainly moved away from her humble beginnings.

Though some may dismiss her as a novelty act, she's certainly gained some fans.

But one area of insecurity for the teen? Her teeth.Sources say Bregoli was embarrassed by her crooked teeth, with a particular issue being the crowding on her bottom row.
In fact, it's tricky to find a pic of Bregoli's gnashers.

Bregoli is also known for wearing grills.

But now all that has changed!
Danielle Bregoli Drops $40,000 on Some Brand New Chompers https://t.co/VNnIzzGmSw— TMZ (@TMZ)1546621213.0
Last year, she shared a video about her insecurity.In it, she smiles to the camera, saying, "I hate my teeth." She then pouts and poses, saying, "but I look cute if I keep my mouth shut."
The procedure Bregoli went for was a set of porcelain veneers.Veneers are placed over the natural teeth to give an even, white and flawless appearance.
For those desiring the perfect smile, there's no better way to go.Veneers are becoming increasingly popular as a way of "cheating" perfect teeth.
But the procedure doesn't come cheap.According to TMZ, Bregoli's new set of gnashers cost her a whopping $40,000. That's a lot of money, particularly for a teenager!
She credited celebrity dentist Dr Aamir Wahab with her new smile.Instagram page full of amazing transformations.
Some fans reacted positively to the news.
Smart! https://t.co/ZakGUKvAu7— EDDIE KAYNE (@EDDIE KAYNE)1546604861.0
Others were less happy.It's true that Bregoli's new smile is far more generic and gives her a less individual look.
But if she's happy with it, who are we to judge?Often the confidence boost people get from "fixing" their so-called "flaws" can have a hugely positive impace on their confidence and thus their quality of life. We say, live and let live!
Bregoli makes a ton of money through her social media presence.Her career has many branches, but it's suggested that it's her Instagram presence which has boosted her income enough to allow for this expensive procedure.
The controversial star's career seems set to grow even further in 2019.
Not bad for someone who started their career as a meme.Love her or hate her, it's going to become harder and harder to escape Bregoli as her stock is on the rise.
And her Spotify stats speak for themselves.
And it's safe to say those fans are pretty dedicated.We have to say, it's pretty impressive that this teenager has managed to turn one car-crash television appearance into what seems like a legitimate career.
In spite of her controversies, she's still standing.
So if she wants to spend $40,000 on some teeth, so what?
To think, if it wasn't for Dr. Phil, we would never have heard of Bhad Bhabie.And so for that, we have to say thank you. We're extremely excited to see Bregoli's Snapchat show in the coming months. If this story is anything to go by, we're in for a treat.
But now she's in the news for a different reason.
Broner slipped into her DMs.
Text me crazy girl.But Bhad Bharbie outed him on her social media, posting his message to Instagram and to her 17 million followers. She accompanied his messages with the Akon song: 'Locked up'.
Broner has been bombarded.
Broner has since apologised.
Nobody wants to date a kid. But I fault Instagram for not having people's age on their profile. I thought she was grown the way she out here moving.Is it too little too late?
