Danielle Bregoli was born March 26, 2003. Her parents, Ira Peskowitz and Barbara Ann Bregoli, dated for a year before Bregoli's mother became pregnant, later breaking up when she was an infant. Bregoli was raised primarily by her mother, and is estranged from her father, a deputy who works for the Palm Beach Police Department.
On September 14, 2016, Bregoli and her mother, Barbara Ann, were interviewed on Dr. Phil for the segment "I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime" to discuss Bregoli's behavior, which included stealing a crew member's car while the episode was being filmed. When Bregoli became irritated at the laughter that the audience exhibited at her expense, she responded to it by saying, "Cash me ousside how bout dat"; her pronunciation of the phrase became a meme "Cash Me Outside Howbow Dah", and Bregoli became known as the "'Cash Me Outside' Girl". On February 10, 2017, Bregoli reappeared on the show, but without the studio audience, due to the response at her previous appearance. Her first appearance on the show, and the catchphrase it spawned, would inspire a single based on the clip, which was recorded by DJ Suede The Remix God, which entered the Billboard Hot 100, Streaming Songs, and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts in its March 4, 2017 issue. The song in turn led to a series of dance videos that were uploaded onto YouTube.
Bregoli and her mother sued three companies for "infringing her intellectual property rights" by using her signature catchphrase without consent. She also threatened to sue Walmart for using her catchphrase on T-shirts. She was also nominated for a 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards in the "Trending" category based on the catchphrase.
Following her appearance on Dr. Phil, Bregoli spent time on a Utah ranch for troubled teens. She was later arrested and pleaded guilty to charges of grand theft, marijuana possession, and filing a false police report for which she was sentenced to five years' probation in July 2017, but it ended earlier, in March 2018, after hiring a new lawyer.
In February 2017, Bregoli's mother Barbara Ann became involved in a fight with a female airline passenger, who accused her of taking too long to put her belongings in an overhead bin. Bregoli then punched the passenger in the face and was removed from the flight. Bregoli, her mother and the victim were later banned from Spirit Airlines for life. In the same month, Bregoli got involved in a brawl outside a bar.
