The Real Reason Bhad Bhabie Is In Rehab

Bhad Bhabie — aka the "cash me outside girl" whose real name is Danielle Bregoli — has experienced a lot in the years since she first found fame on Dr. Phil. "There's always something weird about an artist who manages to make it big before finishing high school, but Bhad Bhabie was barely a teenager when the world was first exposed to her incomprehensibly brash, 'DGAF' demeanor," NME notes. 

It didn't take long before the "ultimate product of a soundbite generation," who was "destined to be defined by a catchphrase that could've ruined her life," instead turned her "into a superstar."

However, with fame came drama. While launching her rap career, Bhabie found herself in a feud with actress Skai Jackson and in trouble with the law. Beyond that, on June 3, 2020, news came out that the young star had done what other celebrities like Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Ben Affleck, and Mel B have done in the past and sought out help from professionals by entering rehab in order to deal with "some personal issues." 

Bhad Bhabie is getting help for a 'combination' of serious issues

While Bhad Bhabie's Instagram account makes it seem like she lives a charmed life these days, behind the scenes, it turns out that the star has been dealing with more than fans realized. According to TMZ, "Danielle, as well as people around her, were aware of the severity of the issue" that she was struggling with, "which is why she decided to seek assistance" by going to rehab.

The young rapper "recently checked herself into a facility at an undisclosed location, and has been held up a few weeks now," per TMZ. The outlet also noted that a source revealed that "she's receiving treatment for a combination of things," including "childhood trauma" and "substance abuse in the form of prescription pills."

A note also popped up on Bhabie's Instagram, first informing fans of the star's situation, then adding that she "has promised to return better, and healthier than ever."

The good news is that Bhabie, who will likely spend 30 to 90 days in rehab, is apparently "doing well so far and is optimistic about her progress." She's also getting support from those around her, including her management, who told TMZ, "We are very proud of Danielle for recognizing that she needed help and seeking it out."
