Bhad Bhabie has spoken out about her major success on OnlyFans, admitting she found the response to her controversial debut on the platform “shocking”.
The rapper – real name Danielle Bregoli – first made waves on the internet thanks to her wild appearance on Dr Phil as a teenager, where her catchphrase “catch me outside, how bout at?” was born.
Now 18-years-old, Bhad Bhabie has gone from rapper to OnlyFans star, with Bregoli opening up about her latest venture to Inked Mag for their latest cover story.
“Since I was young, I’ve been called names and told that I’m doing this and that,” she told the publication.
“I thought, ‘You know what, I might as well make money from it.’ I’m not gonna lie, I did definitely expect for it to be the biggest shit ever for the website. I figured I was one of the biggest people to do it and it was going to do amazing. But even after I made one, [the success still] shocked me.”
And shocking it was — within just six hours of launching her OnlyFans account back in April, Bhad Bhabie raked in an eye-watering $1 million, shattering the previous OF record.

“Not bad for 6 hours. We broke the fuck out of that OnlyFans record,” she said at the time.
She also showed in a TikTok video that her total revenue was $1,092,762.63. According to TMZ, OnlyFans also confirmed that she did in fact smash the site’s record.
While her latest project has proved to be a prosperous one, Bregoli also revealed she’s been working on new music that she describes as “less gimmicky” than her previous releases.
“I feel like a lot of my old music was honestly childish,” she explained. “I was young, I was 14 and 15. Now I’m 18 and I’m definitely going to show that I’m more mature with the stuff I’m talking about and my delivery.”
