Bhad Bhabie Danielle Bregoli believes she was raped at a troubled teen camp run by Dr. Phil.
A teen rapper who shot to fame in 2016 after a wild appearance on Dr. Phil says she was exploited at a bootcamp for troubled teenagers that the TV psychiatrist sent her to.
According to a video she posted to her YouTube page Friday, Danielle Bregoli, who was featured on the therapy show with her mother in an episode titled "I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime," was driven to Turn-About Ranch in Utah in the middle of the night by two "transporters."
Bregoli, now 18, claims she was placed in a teepee and forced to remain awake for days when she arrived.
She said, "You have to stay there for three days." “They wouldn't let me sleep on the floor for no reason. They were like, 'Oh, get up, get up.' I was falling asleep and they were like, 'Oh, get up, get up.' So I'm sitting here thinking, 'This is going to be very bad,' when I see these people don't have any sympathy.”
Bregoli, who goes by the stage name Bhad Bhabie, spoke out as part of the "Breaking Code Silence" initiative, which aims to raise awareness about claims of child violence and mistreatment at the Utah facility and other related services.
Hannah Archuleta, a Colorado student, filed a lawsuit against the facility in February, accusing a staff member of sexually assaulting her. After appearing on Dr. Phil, Archuleta was also sent to the ranch. She said she was disciplined after disclosing the alleged violence on the Dr. Phil show.
In the video, Bregoli answered Archuleta's accusations and requested an apology from Dr. Phil.
“Dr. Phil, I'm giving you until April 5th to apologize to me, Hannah, and any other child you sent to Turn-About or any other program like this, and if you don't, I'm going to handle things my way,” she said.
After Paris Hilton disclosed in her documentary "This is Paris" that she was harassed physically, mentally, and emotionally at the Utah boarding school Provo Canyon, Archuleta came forward.
