On Wednesday, Danielle Bregoli, more famously known as the “Cash Me Ousside” girl, has pleaded guilty to charges of grand theft, grand theft auto, possession of marijuana, and filing a false police report. All this at the ripe young age of 14.
She is likely to be sentenced at a hearing on July 22.
In three separate occasions last year, Bregoli is accused of stealing her mother’s purse, stealing her mother’s car and calling the police to falsely report her mother was on heroin, according to the State Attorney’s Office.
On May 26, 2016, Bregoli called the police to report a domestic battery involving her mother, and accused her of using drugs after spreading powdered sugar on a bathroom counter and describing it as heroin to police, according to the State Attorney’s Office.
This year, Bregoli was found in a car with marijuana, the State Attorney’s Office reports.
Two additional charges against Bregoli were dismissed Wednesday.
Bregoli, her mother Barbara Ann Bregoli and attorney Scott Richardson declined to comment following the hearing.
Robert Shalhoub, a West Palm Beach-based attorney hired by Bregoli’s father Ira Peskowitz, asked Judge Lou Delgado to impose a “no-internet” condition on Bregoli, pending her next court hearing.
Before completely denying the request, Delgado stated, “I’m reluctant to do that.” Her father said that was a disappointing decision. He believes that Danielle is being exploited by her mother and agents.
He said, “She posts 24-7, It’s controlled by an alleged management team that promotes absurd behavior for a 14-year-old child.”
Bergoli was thrust into the spotlight after an episode of Dr. Phil in 2016 in which she appeared with her mother. Her dirty mouth and nasty attitude became stepping stones in her rise to fame.
Danielle challenged audience members to a fight with the phrase “Cash me ousside, how bow dat?” Video clips of the threat soon made her the subject of internet memes and built her an Instagram following that as of Wednesday neared 10 million.
Since her newfound stardom, the 14-year-old has moved to Hollywood and is reportedly shopping a reality television show. She’s also encountered more controversy, getting kicked off of a Spirit Airlines flight with her mother after an alleged confrontation with another woman and becoming the subject of a recent lawsuit by a woman who said someone in Danielle’s entourage broke her nose in an attack outside a Lake Worth restaurant in February.
According to Shalhoub, Danielle is in the center of a custody battle between her parents, and a hearing is to be scheduled within the next two to three weeks. If she manages to stay out of juvie and is placed with her father, this could be the end of her “fame.”
