Bhad Bhabie has been unusually quiet on social media lately.
As it turns out, the 17-year-old rapper (and ‘Cash Me Outside’ girl) has checked herself into rehab.
Sources told TMZ that Danielle Bregoli, also known as Bhad Bhabie, recently checked herself into a rehab facility at an undisclosed location. The media outlet reports that she is receiving treatment for a few different things, including childhood trauma, plus substance abuse in the form of prescription pills.
Bhad Bhabie’s silence caught the attention of rapper and activist Chika, who called her out for being hush on George Floyd.
“bad bhabie lil chickenhead a** been silent, too. we really ain’t caught her outside not once. hmm,” Chika wrote.
Plenty of other social media users were calling her out for being quiet, too. Many have been leaving comments on her last posted selfie.
We should have known that something was up. The rapper has never been one to be quiet, at least not on social media. She has a habit of talking smack — remember her feud with Disney Star Skai Jackson, that resulted in a restraining order? And she has never stayed silent in the face of criticism. Just a couple of months ago, she was returning fire after lots of people accused her of blackfishing.
She did finally break her social media silence, posting a black square on Instagram. The gesture is meant to honor Floyd and the BLM movement in a sort of “social media blackout.”
Another post has appeared on her IG, in which someone explained that she’s been taking “some much-needed time off to attend to some personal issues.”
“For past weeks, she has been in a treatment center receiving and continuing to receive professional support,” the statement explains. “She loves her fans, and has promised to return better, and healthier than ever.”
It continues, “Please respect her and her families privacy at this time.”
TMZ‘s sources say that Bhad Bhabie decided to seek assistance because she was aware of the severity of the issue. It sounds like she’s battling an addiction to prescription pills.
However, those sources say that she’s been doing well so far, and is optimistic about her progress. She could be in rehab for anywhere between 30 to 90 days.
“We are very proud of Danielle for recognizing that she needed help and seeking it out,” her management team said.
