She also has an academic ‘Bhad Scholarship’

Bhad Bhabie has managed to make £42 million ($49 million) from OnlyFans in just a year – and now she gets to tell students of the world’s most prestigious university how to do so too.

Oxford University – an institution responsible for majority of UK’s Prime Ministers – hosted an event that featured the rapper, real name Danielle Bregoli, shot to fame in 2016 when she appeared on an episode of Dr Phil, alongside her mother Barbara Ann.

Forbes magazine estimated that her total earnings for 2021 were $51 million, and that the majority of this came from her OnlyFans work. She apparently managed to make more than $1 million from just her first six hours on the platform.

So of course, the good students of Oxford needed to listen her for pearls of wisdom and financial inspiration.

The teen star was invited to speak at the Oxford Union; just a day before her political activist Malala Yousafzai gave a talk in the same spot.Just last month she teamed up with the Educapital Foundation to create a $1.7 million scholarship, which will provide postgraduate entrepreneurial grants and full scholarships to students.

The social media star spoke about her partnership, explaining that she wanted to make a real difference to ‘young hustlers’ starting their own business.

“While developing this scholarship programme, it was great collaborating with Educapital’s Aisha Rodriguez and Dr. Brenita Mitchell, both amazing women giving amazing opportunities to the next generation of entrepreneurs,” she said.

“We didn’t want to just give out tuition funds but also help the grads with startup capital to launch their own businesses. I can’t wait to see what these young hustlers do.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Brenita Mitchell, Founder of Educapital Foundation, said the scholarship will remove financial barriers for students: “We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with Bhad Bhabie that allows us the continue our mission to eliminate poverty through trade school education.”

“I have seen firsthand the role education plays in opening doors to building wealth and creating successful career opportunities.

“By removing financial barriers, the ‘Bhad Scholarship’, will help students spend more time focusing on their studies, and help them achieve their lifelong dreams.”

Bregoli first went viral when she famously told the Dr Phil’s audience: “Cash me ousside, how bout dah?”

She first appeared on Dr Phil for the segment titled ‘I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime’.

Since then, she has managed to enter the world of rap as Bhad Bhabie, and is currently signed to Atlantic Records.

But it’s been her venture into OnlyFans that has paid off the most for her according to Forbes who placed her 16th on their latest Top Creators list.

“Danielle Bregoli, who goes by ‘Bhad Bhabie,’ made $49 million in 2021 from content subscription service OnlyFans,” Forbes said.

“For just $24 per month, fans can access lingerie and bathing suits-clad photos of Bregoli – who encourages her subscribers to tip and receive more explicit content privately.

“The 19-year-old earns as much as top Hollywood actors and more than TikTok stars like Addison Rae Easterling. Bregoli, however, may be less palatable.

“The Florida teen entered the public eye in 2016 after a feud between her and her mother over Bregoli’s obnoxious (and sometimes illegal) antics on Dr. Phil went viral when she exhorted the jeering audience to ‘cash [her] outside.’

“Following a moderately successful rap career, Bregoli translated her starpower into an OnlyFans account after her 18th birthday last year—reportedly making over $1 million in the first six hours.”
