Bella Thorne Reveals Chilling Details About Her Sexual Assault
The 20-year-old got on board Time’s Up, a movement started this year as a way to stand in solidarity with the countless men and women who came forward about their experiences with sexual misconduct. While she didn’t attend the Golden Globes and wear black like many other stars who participated in the inspirational initiative, she took to social media to share her story.
The Famous in Love actress tweeted yesterday, “I never knew what was right or wrong growing up..I didn’t know the person sneaking into my bed room at night was a bad person. #timesup”

She also wrote on Instagram, “I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14..when I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again. Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did. But some of us aren’t as lucky to get out alive. Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup”
Bella received tons of support after she told the world she has been molested in the past, including from FIL co-star Georgie Flores who wrote, “You are brave & loved & perfect the way you are. I’m so sorry. & sorry that some loser who doesn’t know you would write something so gross.”
Tana Mongeau, who is one of BT’s best friends and a reported ex-fling, also sent her love last month saying, “My baby the bravest baddest most talented girl in the game. Using her influence to spread awareness abt the hardest sh*t in her life. Legit incredible.”
The former Shake It Up star thanked all of those who reached out at the time (“Means more than you know,” she replied back to Georgie) and then posted another tweet that seemingly expressed her thoughts on the situation.
The world can be a sick place sometimes :/
