Danielle Bregoli — the 13-year-old who rose to fame after she appeared on the Dr. Phil show — is extending her 15 minutes of fame. After starring in her celebrity crush Kodak Black’s “Everything 1K” music video, she’s been getting more offers — and the most recent one was from Miami-based rapper Stitches.
A rep for Danielle claimed that she was tricked into starring in Stitches’ new music video, TMZ reported. The rapper allegedly reached out to Danielle and asked to collaborate on his new project, but his request was rejected. Afterward, he contacted one of the teenager’s friends on social media and offered to pay cash if the pal would show up at his house with Danielle to shoot the video — without her mom Barbara Ann Peskowitz's consent.
"Stitches is a scumbag. He tricked a child into his van by offering her candy,” her rep told TMZ.
But a rep for the 21-year-old rapper said Danielle willfully chose to be part of the music video for his 2016 song “Lost My Mind”. Stitches denied that he tricked her or took advantage of her — he only wanted to be a mentor to her as she continues her career in hip-hop.
Footage taken from the video shoot seems to prove that Danielle was having a good time and wanted to be there. She stood in the sun roof of a white car, wearing a black tank top and white jeans and rapped into the camera — and she even recorded a behind-the-scenes skit with the “Brick in Yo Face” rapper for Instagram.
“Danny, why they judging me? Why they make me seem like an enemy when I’m a good guy?” Stitches asked her, and she replied with her infamous catchphrase, “Cause they need to be caught outside.”
It’s unclear whether Stitches will release the music video.
