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“

Furthermore, her father says that her outfit and behavior are all related to sex kinds of stuff. In an interview with The Sun, Ira said,
“Was she groomed? Absolutely. With the way she dressed and the way she acted, everything was sex-related and encouraged by people around her. Who in their right mind thinks ‘Ah she’s just turned 18 so now it’s time to make money on OnlyFans’, you don’t think of that in a few days there must have been some preparation when she was under 18.”
For Ira, it wasn’t a normal thing, and it’s abnormal to pay just to see a barely legal girl explicitly. He thinks that the sad thing is people had treated his daughter like a product.
He further stated that,
“Everyone around here just wants her to make money. She doesn’t rap anymore, she doesn’t sing, and she doesn’t go on tour. She sits in her house and does her OnlyFans. I don’t know how many hours a day they are telling her to do it but to make that kind of money must be time-consuming. I know there’s a leaked video of her with a bunch of girls doing sexual things.”

“I wanted to get Danielle the proper health care and help that she needed in regards to her hardships in life, from her problems at school, her behaviour with others, her drug abuse, all that stuff. I wanted to be able to help Danielle in a nurturing and normal atmosphere that a child would go through, not through this nonsense.”
