The Truth About Skai Jackson's Feud With Bhad Bhabie

The feud between Disney Channel star Skai Jackson and internet personality and rapper Bhad Bhabie (real name Danielle Bregoli) escalated to the point of legal action when Jackson filed a restraining order against Bregoli, who rose to fame for her (ahem) fighting spirit on a 2016 episode of Dr. Phil. According to E! News. Jackson was issued a temporary restraining order against the "Cash Me Ousside" star on Feb. 26, 2020.

Things got so ugly that both of the girls' mothers got involved, and ultimately, Jackson felt unsafe. In court documents obtained by E! News, the actress claimed Bregoli's "harassment has caused me to be fearful of leaving my house by myself, and lack of sleep."

Here's everything you need to know about how this nasty feud began and where it stands now.

Skai Jackson and Bhad Bhabie's feud may involve a boy

The beef between Bhad Bhabie (aka Danielle Bregoli) and Skai Jackson allegedly began when the Jessie star made flirty comments on Instagram about Bregoli's ex-boyfriend, rapper NBA YoungBoy. "Can somebody hook me up with YB. He just so fine to me...Lord," she said, per Insider.

Bregoli wasted no time responding to Jackson's comments, reportedly calling the actress a "Disney Thot" on Instagram. Bregoli then went on a rant about Jackson via Instagram Live. "Why you so obsessed with me b**ch? I'll literally kill you..." Bhad Bhabie said in the video (via The Shade Room Teens) "You're so small if I get my hands on's're going to the hospital."

Bregoli claimed that her issues with Jackson were not just about YB, alleging that the Disney star had pursued her other exes too. "Stop believing that this b***ch innocent," she said, per E! News.

Jackson never directly responded to Bhad Bhabie's digs online, but internet sleuths surmised that one particular tweet may have been a clapback at Bregoli. Jackson's post flaunted her successes and dismissed drama. "Book doing well, check. Finalizing makeup deal, check... " she tweeted, along with half a dozen other accomplishments. "No time 4 negatives."

Skai Jackson's mom and Bhad Bhabie's mom battled too

Although Skai Jackson didn't directly spar with Bhad Bhabie online, her mother, Kiya Cole, did wade into the cesspool that is internet feuds. 

"How about you just put your address or phone number in my DM and I will gladly have this conversation with your mother," Cole commented on one of Bhad Bhabie's posts (via Insider). "Take this s**t somewhere else and leave my damn daughter alone."

This apparently compelled Bhad Bhabie's mom, Barbara Ann Bregoli, to get involved. Oh listen to you preach," she wrote, per Insider. "Tell your daughter to stop speaking on mine and you think you are calling my daughter Ratchet. Remember I come from New York too." 

Cole eventually decided to stop sparring online. "Had to reel myself back in and not lose track of all the great work I've been doing these past few months," she said, per Seventeen. "At the end of the day, I'm still human."

Skai Jackson wishes Bhad Bhabie 'nothing but the best'

The animosity between Skai Jackson and Bhad Bhabie (aka Danielle Bregoli) seemed to quiet down after Jackson pursued a restraining order. In fact, TMZ reported in June 2020, that the Disney star had decided not to continue legal measures against the rapper. "Because Danielle stopped threatening me after the Court ordered her to do so, and now that she's made the decision to work on herself through rehab and therapy, I'm pleased that I don't need to extend my restraining order," she said.

Jackson told TMZ she would possibly refile if things heated up again. "If she goes back to her old ways, of course, we'll have to change that, but I hope and believe that it won't be necessary. I think it's great that Danielle is getting the help she feels she needs. I wish her nothing but the best on her road to recovery," Jackson said.

Hopefully this sizzling feud can remain on the back burner as these two pursue their showbiz careers.
