However, until now, she hasn’t said anything about the matter.

Barbara Played Both father & Mother Role In Her Daughter’s Life

As we mentioned above, Barbara and her ex-husband stayed in a relationship for a short period of time. Well, after parting ways, Ira was totally an absent figure from his daughter Bhad Bhabie’s life. Barbara was just 35 years old when she gave birth to the rapper.

From the very beginning, she was raising Danielle alone and was there through every situation be it good or bad. On the occasion of Father’s Day, Bregoli posted an image of her alongside her daughter.

She captioned the post,

“Happy Father’s Day to me as I have always and will always be the ONLY parent in my daughters life – I have been there through every up and down, good and bad, happy and sad. Through every milestone of waking, talking, first tooth, first everything- I was 35 when I had her and knew from the beginning I was going to do it alone and I was just fine with that and still am. Sometimes it’s better to not have a parent around that never wanted you then to force them to be around. Danielle and I still face challenges BUT we will always be there to support one another as we are a TEAM ALWAYS & FOREVER “Barbara & Danielle Est. 3/26/2003” @bhadbhabie”

The mother-daughter duo then started living together in a beautiful house in Boynton Beach.

Bhabie’s mom Suffered From Cancer: Is she alive?

As Barbara raised her daughter Dani in Florida alone, she was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. It was a hard time for Barbara as her daughter was just four at that time. Even though, the rapper became her mom’s temporary caregiver. She use to rub aloe on her mother’s chest to ease the pain which was given by the treatments.

Not only that, but they also had financial problems as Barbara was unable to get any job. They only survived on insurance, child support, and sometimes support from Barbara’s family. In an interview with Palm Beach Post, Barbara talked about the subject matter “mother’s love”. She told,

“Sometimes you think you are alone, but there are a bunch of moms like me out there who should be recognized. It’s hard being on your own. A dad is a dad, but a mom is the one who gives birth to a child. She nurtures that child. You are a mom for life. That never changes.”

Although the cancer was cured, it again returned to Barbara’s life when her daughter was around 11 years old. Thankfully, as of now, she is healthy and living life happily.

Barbara Bregoli’s Family Has A Well-Documented Controversy

As per Dazed, after the return of cancer in Barbara’s life for the second time, Bhabie started having a change in her behavior. Bregoli said, “Danielle had fear. She feared losing her mom, and that’s how she reacted.” When Dani turned 13, her behavior got worse and worse.

Her action soon started turning criminal, and after she stole her own mother’s car just to go to Miami, Barbara sent her to rehab. However, it is believed that the laws were of no help. Then, on September 14, 2016, Barbara and her daughter were interviewed on Dr. Phil just to talk about the then-13-year-old Bhabie’s behavior.

In spite of getting better results, her phrase “Catch me outside, how about that?” became a meme. Later, she started spending her time at a facility for “troubled teens”, the Turn-About Ranch in Escalante, Utah. She ended up getting arrested and found guilty of marijuana possession, filing a false police report, and theft. In July 2017, she was announced to five years of jail. But, she got out earlier in March 2018, after hiring a new lawyer.

The Controversy Further Elongated

In March 2021, the artist revealed that she was abused and had a bad experience at the Turn-About Ranch through her YouTube channel. She also their staff for forcing her to sit still for straight three days. Bhabie wasn’t even allowed to sleep at that moment. Her complaints were also ignored.

She also confronted Dr. Phil through the video for sending teenagers on his show to those kinds of facilities. Dr. Phil, on the other hand, denied all of her criticism through an interview with NewsNation. He said he was unaware of the ranch’s actions, there wasn’t any feedback from them.

Take a look at the video mentioned below, in which Bregoli has talked about the matter.

Besides, after remaining distant from Barbara and her daughter Bhad for years, on 7 Apr 2021, Ira said, he wants his famous daughter to be out of the limelight. On this subject matter, his ex-wife has responded through her Instagram. She captioned the post,

“Hmm I’d say this is a perfect example of two hypocrites! Bitch my daughter hates you both – stop trying to act like you know her – you never met her 🤦‍♀️”
