Danielle Cohn has since addressed her dad's accusations about her real birthday on Instagram stories.
Danielle Cohn's dad Dustin Cohn has accused the internet personality of lying about her real age in a new Facebook post.
Danielle Cohn is a YouTuber, singer and social media star with currently over 3.7 million followers on Instagram. Before rising to fame Danielle, competed in pageants and even won the Miss Florida Jr Preteen Queen pageant in 2014. Since then she's gone viral on musical.ly, released her own music and been in relationships with other popular influencers including the likes of Mikey Tua (17-years-old) and Sebastien Topéte (18-years-old). Danielle claims that she is currently 15-years-old.
However, now Danielle's dad Dustin Cohn has reported that Danielle is much younger than she says she is.
When was Danielle Cohn born? When is her real birthday?
According to Dustin, Danielle's birthday is actually March 7, 2006. Taking to Facebook this week (Sep 6), he wrote: "Danielle is 13. I have never liked Danielle being on social media especially when she started at such an early age. But pageants, and modeling, and then musically we’re all pushed on her. It was always a huge problem to me."
If Dustin's claims about his daughter's age are true, Danielle would have been 11-years-old when she first became an internet star.
Dustin then explained: "I asked for it to stop but it didn’t, and now it has spiraled into me being worried about my daughters safety.' He continued to say: "I want these companies to be held accountable because they never did their due diligence in checking my daughter’s age, and have used a minor for profit because the money is more important than the truth. The exploitation of children on these sites needs to stop."
He continued: "I allowed Danielle to move to California if this made her happy, with the agreement that she would visit once a month and be appropriate. If I found something inappropriate they’d take it down. It started with crop tops to bikinis and now lingerie? Instead of it being taken down, now every time I ask, im told Danielle wants to post it... and I’m told she’s losing likes. To me safety is more important."
Dustin then called out brands who work with Danielle: "Instagram, YouTube, fashion nova, buzzfeed, universal, target, Bang Energy Drinks are ok with child exploitation".
Dustin also spoke out against Danielle's dating life: "I also feel sorry for these young guys who are being lied to and put in a horrible position of dating an under age and illegal minor. She is 13 and should not be around 17 year old boys."

I have decided to set things straight about my daughter Danielle Cohn. For years I have done the diplomatic thing while...Posted by Dustin Cohn on Monday, 16 September 2019
Since Dustin accused Danielle of lying about her age, Danielle has responded to him with a set of Instagram stories. Danielle wrote: "Growing up without a biological father is the best thing that could have ever happen to me. I want you to notice that I said biological. I have many people taking your place. My mom, my grandparents, my brother, my friends' parents, the list goes on and on".
She added: "There is so much damage you have caused that I will never be able to forgive you. Like going on social media instead of personally reaching out to me... you laid out lies and spoke about me as an enemy would... you lied about it all." She also insisted: "[My mom] did not force me to do anything that I do not want to do myself. I have a mind of my own."
It's currently unclear if Danielle is 13-years-old like her Dad claims or not. We shall update you as soon as there is any further information.
