A single Instagram comment has ignited a social-media feud turned legal battle between actress Skai Jackson and rapper Danielle Bregoli, known as Bhad Bhabie to her fans.

Last week, E! News confirmed that Jackson, 17, filed a restraining order against Bregoli, 16, citing the rapper's continued "harassment" as the reasoning behind her decision to take legal action. 

Here's a breakdown of the feud between the two social-media stars — and their mothers.

The feud began in February when Jackson voiced interest in Bregoli's ex, and Bregoli wasted no time in retaliating.

On February 25, Jackson posted a comment from her secondary Instagram account expressing romantic interest in rapper NBA YoungBoy, who Bregoli dated in 2019. 

"Can somebody hook me up with YB," the comment read. "He just so fine to me… Lord."

In response, Bregoli posted an Instagram story calling Jackson a "Disney Thot" (Jackson appeared in the Disney Channel sitcom "Jessie" from 2011 to 2015). 

When screenshots of the story were posted to The Shade Room Teens' Instagram account, which is dedicated to keeping up with drama among influencers, Bregoli commented on the post adding that Jackson had blocked her on social media. 

Bregoli then went onto Instagram Live, where she appeared to threaten the actress. 

"B—-, why are you so obsessed with me? I will literally kill you," she says in the clip.

Jackson never directly addressed Bregoli's comments — but she did post a tweet dismissing "the negatives" in her life.

While Jackson never made a statement in direct response to Bregoli's threats, she took to Twitter to list her accomplishments, including the success of her book, the finalization of a makeup deal, and a speech-in-progress for Ted Talks.

"No time 4 negatives!" she wrote in the tweet which has received over 24,000 likes at the time of writing. 

Some of Jackson's 188,000 Twitter followers interpreted the post to be a response to Bregoli. 

"And this is how you respond to B listers when you're booked busy and ACTUALLY famous," one commenter wrote. 

"I really love how well you handle ugly situations," another said. "Pure maturity."

Meanwhile, Bregoli continued to talk about Jackson online.

Bregoli continued to express her frustrations with Jackson, posting another Instagram story that was shared on The Shade Room Teens' account. 

"So y'all telling me it's okay for someone to play the innocent role in front the main crowd but in real life they making finsta accounts to talk bad about ppl they try and b like so bad?!!!" she wrote.

She went on to add that her posts seemingly attacking the actress were not because of Jackson's interest in YoungBoy specifically. She said she was angry Jackson pursued several of her exes.

"This b—- got issues. Stop believe that this b—- is innocent," she concluded.

Things escalated when Bregoli and Jackson's mothers got involved.

Jackson's mother, Kiya Cole, commented on Bregoli's post, condemning her "trashy negativity." 

"How about you just put your address or phone number in my DM and I will gladly have this conversation with your mother," she wrote. "Take this s— somewhere else and leave my damn daughter alone."

Bregoli's mother, Barbara Ann Bregoli, then responded to Cole's post.

"oh listen to you preach. tell your daughter to stop speaking on mine," she wrote. "and you think you are calling my daughter Ratchet. Remember I come from New York too."

The two went back in forth in the comments, trading threats and criticizing each other's parenting styles.

Cole went on to post a photo with her daughter on Instagram. 

"TOGETHER a united front. ALWAYS have each other's back. FOREVER side by side," she captioned the post (pictured above).

Actress Debby Ryan, who played Jackson's babysitter on "Jessie," seemingly came to her former co-worker's defense.

According to a screenshot posted to The Shade Room Teens' account, Ryan liked a tweet berating Bregoli and defending Jackson.

"Imagine starting beef with Skai Jackson nice unproblematic a–," the tweet read.

She later unliked the tweet and the original poster's account was set to private.

Jackson responded to Bregoli's comments by taking out a restraining order against the rapper, E! News confirmed.

On February 27, Jackson was granted a temporary restraining order in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles.

The 17-year-old stated in her petition that "the harassment has caused me to be fearful of leaving my house by myself, and lack of sleep," according to court documents obtained by E! News. Insider reached out to the Judicial Records Department of the California Superior Court for access to the documents, but did not hear back at the time of writing.

Jackson added that she was "afraid that the violence and harassment would reoccur."

The actress did not address Bregoli's comments publicly, but her Instagram story on February 27 contained a quote about positivity and choosing happiness. 

"If you want to be happy, be happy on purpose. When you wake up in the morning, you can't just wait and see what kind of day you'll have," it read. "You have to decide what kind of day you'll have. Higher thoughts. Higher energies. Higher vibrations. Higher frequencies. Higher experiences."

Bregoli appeared unfazed by the restraining order.

Representatives for Skai Jackson did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. Danielle Bregoli declined to comment for this story.
