Bella Thorne started off as an adorable pre-teen on the Disney Channel, but nowadays she’s more known as a tabloid sensation and Scott Disick’s “close friend.” The redhead has made a 180-degree turn when it comes to her image. She’s proven to the world in recent months that she’s not a little girl anymore. Though she might only be 19, she’s proving that she’s got a wild side that she’s not afraid to flaunt and sure isn't going to apologize for!
We love Bella’s killing acting skills and confident, carefree attitude. But the star has gotten more than a little heat for her wild antics in the past few years. From being in the middle of love triangles, slamming fellow celebrities, and engaging in illegal behavior, there’s a reason why Bella is on more tabloid covers than movie posters. Here are fifteen shocking things that Bella has actually done. We guess her Disney days really are over!
15 She Posts TMI Naked Pics Of Her Sleeping Boyfriend
Bella Thorne loves letting fans know what she’s been doing… including what she’s been up to in between the sheets. The starlet has never been shy to post TMI updates to social media, but a Snapchat she shared of her and her ex Gregg Sulkin in bed made many fans a bit uneasy.
In the pic taken in April 2016, Bella and her beau appeared like they were naked under the covers, so it was easy to assume what these two had been up to before calling it a night. It looked like Gregg was sleeping as Bella snapped and uploaded the shot, which made fans question whether he would have consented to having such an intimate photo uploaded for her millions of followers to see.
This wasn’t the first time she got TMI with Gregg on social media. The same month, she shared a video where she asked her BF for some ‘backdoor’ action. She could be heard saying “After I watch the movie at the premiere… f*ck this” she said motioning to her derriere. Gregg replied, “It’s on my public Snap!” making it clear he wasn’t comfortable with this, but Bella replied with a casual “It’s okay.” Well, we wouldn’t be okay with that if we were him!
14 She Frequently Uses Racial Slurs Online
Bella Thorne is no stranger to using colorful language on social media, but it’s how she coolly drops racial slurs that have offended fans. Several times she’s been caught making offensive remarks against black people on her Snapchat account. She also frequently loves using the N-word to refer to other people.
It should come as no surprise that Bella likes making shocking comments like these, as she’s known for posting about her bizarre behavior online. From the time she drunkenly ate a banana (like it was something else… hint, hint) to showing off her risqué twerking moves, Bella has no filter when it comes to her online social media presence.
We love that she’s carefree and confident in her actions, but that doesn’t make it okay to use offensive slurs and words, especially not in front of an audience of millions. Bella may not have meant to hurt anyone with her comments, but fans have expressed how offensive they were, which is perhaps a sign Bella should think a bit harder before posting things to her public social pages.
13 She Dated Her Brother’s Ex Girlfriend
Bella came out as bisexual in 2016, which was a great move! It’s awesome seeing her open and proud about her orientation, especially for her LGBTQ+ fans. But what wasn’t great was who she started dating shortly after she made her announcement.
The star ended up posting a video online of her making out with her brother’s ex girlfriend. Yes, you heard that right! It’s unclear if Bella was dating her bro’s ex, or if they were just locking lips for the camera. But what fans could see was that Bella wanted to make a statement, and she sure did, in a very weird way.
Most people would not be okay with their sibling kissing their ex girlfriend or boyfriend, and we’re sure Bella’s brother must have made the same way. Fans wish Bella had chosen any other girl to go after!
12 Bella Cheated on Tyler Posey With Charlie Puth
Bella proved she’s not the best girlfriend after photos of her snuggling up to Charlie Puth were leaked while she was still with Tyler Posey. Back in December 2016, Bella was seen getting intimate with Charlie at the 2016 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Miami. Fans were immediately confused because they thought she was still with the Teen Wolf actor!
But fans weren’t the only ones who were confused- days later, Charlie took to Twitter to say that he had no idea Bella and Tyler were still an item. He accused Bella of cheating on her boyfriend and making him the other man without his knowledge.
He wrote: “I don’t know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn’t be treated this way. She told me she was not with him anymore. This is all news to me.” In another Tweet, the singer wrote, “No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I’m not going to be in the middle of it.” Yikes!
11 Afterwards, She Called Charlie A Liar
Even though Charlie confirmed that Bella cheated on Tyler, the actress has yet to apologize for her actions. Instead, she insists that she’s done nothing wrong. On the same day Charlie sent out his tweets, Bella responded by writing: “Ty and I have been broken up for like over two weeks and Charlie and I AREN’T DATING we are friends. That article was written forever ago.” It seems that Charlie would beg to differ!
More recently, in July 2017, Bella brought up the drama again in an interview with Jenny McCarthy. She once again was adamant that the love triangle was nothing more than a miscommunication, and said that Charlie had “lied” about everything. She said that she hung out with Charlie only after her “really difficult split” with Tyler. “I had hung out with [Charlie] twice…. Everything just got way blown out of proportion.”
She added that the original photos of Bella and Charlie were misleading. “It looked like we were about to kiss but we were not about to kiss… I didn’t think it was going to be a problem because I knew personally that me and Ty were cool.” She went on, “He didn’t even text me though, or talk to me about it,” she said of how Charlie handled everything. “I kept calling him, he wouldn’t answer my calls, so he texts me and I was like ‘yo that’s straight up a lie why did you tweet that?’ He should have just called me.” Who’s version of the story do you think is true- Bella or Charlie’s?
10 She Hooked Up With Scott Disick For Fame
Bella shocked the world when she was seen cozying up to Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney Kardashian’s three children, in Cannes several months back. Following that initial sighting, the pair were seen spending a ton of time together, doing everything from going on expensive dinner dates to partying the night away. She even Instagramed photos from Scott’s house after hanging out with him the night before, proving the two have had at least one sleep over.
However, sources have said the 19-year old is only using Scott to increase her star power. One source said to People that they have a “friends with benefits” type relationship, though both Scott and Bella have said they’re only friends (though the pictures suggest otherwise). Other sources have said the teen is hopeful that hooking up with a Kardashian baby daddy will help bring her more fame and solidify her new image as a wild child rather than a Disney darling. Being with Scott has definitely gotten her more tabloid attention recently, but we’re not sure this is the type of attention she should be seeking.
9 She’s Ratting Scott Disick Out to Kourtney Kardashian… For Fame
Want more proof that Bella is using Scott Disick for fame? The teen is reportedly letting his ex Kourtney Kardashian know everything he’s been up to during his months long party binge. Since splitting with Kourtney, Scott has been on a wild partying spree that she’s allegedly not too happy about. But one insider says she’s been helping Kourt keep tabs on him in hopes that the Kardashians will help her boost her star power even further.
“Bella has been ratting out Scott to Kourtney Kardashian,” a friend of Bella’s shared with Hollywood Life last month. “She tells Kourtney all the dirty things Scott is doing, and in return, the Kardashians have promised to help boost Bella’s career.” It looks like Bella is seeking the next famous face to help her improve her star power once her fling with Scott runs dry.
But, the source went on to warn that things probably won’t end well for Bella. “That family looks out for itself and no one else. Bella’s always been obsessed with the Kardashians and thinks they’ll take her under their wing. But the minute Scott drops her, they will too.” Yikes!
8 She Makes Fun of Eating Disorders
Bella got a lot of heat when she made fun of anorexia while starring on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up. In almost every episode, Bella’s character made some sort of offensive remark about eating disorders, and the actress never seemed to have a problem spewing such hateful comments. Even when the media began highlighting such offensive remarks, Bella didn’t seem to understand the weight of her words and refused to apologize for going along with the script.
Fellow Disney channel alum Demi Lovato went on a Twitter rant against Bella and the cast while the show was still on the air. "I could just eat you up, well if I ate" - Disney Chanel's Shake It Up.... What are we promoting here? #notfunnyATALL...I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress' from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make jokes about...that very disease..... #nice.." She said in one tweet. Disney said they were going to pull the re-runs off the air to evaluate the content. To this day, Bella has never addressed the criticism or done anything to apologize for making fun of this serious issue.
7 She Shows Off That She Drinks While Underage
Remember that Bella is only 19-years old- that means, by American law, she’s not allowed to drink alcohol. But that hasn’t stopped the star from showing off all the times she’s drunk while on social media.
She’s known for documenting all of her wild booze-filled nights out, which typically involve her flaunting her assets in barely-there outfits, making out with random strangers, and being obviously intoxicated. While under the influence, Bella has done a lot of strange things, including seductively eating a banana to posting pics of her bare chest.
This type of behavior would be questionable regardless if she was of age or not. But, since her consuming alcohol is technically illegal, it’s even worse. We bet Bella will look back on her old Snapchat stories and will one day regret posting all of those things for the world to see.
6 She Showed Her Lady Bits Getting Waxed On Social Media
No, Bella did not just say she was going for a bikini wax. She actually documented the whole thing. The. Whole. Damn. Thing. This past April, Bella got more TMI than ever with Snapchat when she showed the aesthetician actually waxing her lady bits on camera. Bella’s entire private part was visible to the camera, and so was the woman doing the job who didn’t seem to mind this being video taped for the world to see.
“Oh my God, this is going to hurt so bad.” Bella could be heard saying during one of the first clips. She also captioned the video, “First time getting waxed.” This was followed by several loud shrieks as the woman pulled off the first strip of wax. Ouch! We appreciate that Bella wants to be open and honest with her fans about the lengths she goes for beauty, but we bet no one wanted this image stuck in their head. Perhaps Bella needs to learn what’s appropriate (and what’s not) to post on social media… or at least considers what things her followers might not appreciate seeing!
5 She Does Drugs and Posts About It Online
Tons of fans have speculated that Bella does or has at least tried illicit substances. Based on her hard partying ways and the group she usually hangs out with, many are treating it as a given fact.
One time on Snapchat, Bella showed herself smoking. While it could have very well been a normal, hand-made cigarette, many were quick to assume that it’s MJ. Perez Hilton wrote, “Thorne learned that the hard way when a video leaked on the social app of the 18-year-old smoking what seems to be drugs from a hand-rolled blunt. It looks like what meant to be a private snap to friends ended up all over the Internet.”
More so, many fans have pointed out that Bella has often seemed under the influence of something during her bizarre Snapchat stories. We’re not sure if Bella really likes to party hard or just likes to be a goof, but it seems like she’s bringing herself a lot of negative attention regardless.
4 She’s Ditched Without Paying the Restaurant Bill
OK! Magazine reported in 2015 that Bella had a bit of a Diva moment (or, should we say an illegal moment) when she stormed out of a restaurant without paying the bill. The actress and some of her friends were dining at Teddy Bear in California.
The star allegedly began having a conversation with a family sitting nearby while the waitress cleared her table after her group was done eating. Right before leaving, a witness heard Bella say, “I can’t breath, let’s get out of here,” which prompted her and the rest of the group to leave the restaurant without paying their bills.
The waitress who’d been serving them was reportedly “shocked.” The family Bella had been talking to added that she accused them of taking her photo, though they claimed she didn’t. While this could just be a misunderstanding or the witnesses perhaps over exaggerating what they saw, if this is true, then that’s totally not cool, Bella.
3 She Insulted PewDiePie While Giving Him an Award
Bella received heat after she dissed YouTube PewDiePie (aka Felix Kjellberg) while presenting him with an award at the Teen Choice Awards. The star was reading off the list of nominees for “Male Choice Web Star” with her then-boyfriend Gregg Sulkin, but she seemingly dissed Felix when she tried to pronounce his complicated last name.
“Felix something, something, something, you know what? Be here if you want to hear the rest of your name,” Bella said when trying to say his name. Felix happened to not be in attendance at the event that night, and some fans thought Bella was suggesting he was undeserving of the award since he couldn’t make it.
Bella later took to Twitter to clarify that it was just a joke she was required to say as a presenter. “I knew how to say his name,” she said. “It was part of the script. A joke. I didn’t write it. Calm down. Nothing but love for @pewdiepie.” She wrote. However, many fans still feel that her comment was still her throwing shade.
2 She Bashes Fellow Celebs in the Media
Bella isn’t afraid to throw shade at fellow celebrities. Back in November 2015, the natural redhead made headlines after calling another female star a “mean girl”- though she wouldn’t reveal the identity of the secret bully! When speaking to Seventeen magazine, she admitted she has her own famous mean girl. “[She’s] very, very mean,” Bella said, “I never say hello to her.”
“Her siblings are not mean like she is. It’s just her,” Bella went on. “One of the reasons I don’t like her is because she’s been a billionaire since she was very little, and she’s never had to work for anything in her life.” Many were quick to assume that she was talking about Kendall or Kylie Jenner, as they’d both fit the profile. But Bella took to twitter to say, “ I adore the Jenner girls especially @KylieJenner.” So what about Kendall?
Other fans think she might have been referring to Miley Cyrus or Ariana Grande. Either way, many felt that it was pretty petty that she was attacking a fellow celeb in the media and even shadier that she couldn’t even admit who she was talking about!
1 She Wore Real Fur, But Lied and Said It Was Fake
Back in 2016, Bella posted an outfit of the day online featuring her wearing a fur jacket. She made sure to mention that the jacket was “faux fur,” but fans were quick to point out that, no, that jacket was indeed real.
Fans found the exact jacket being sold on Harrods’s website, where it was listed as the Alice & Olivia Tierra Striped Fur made of genuine fur. The website described it as “Crafted with super-soft rabbit and blue fox fur, it boasts a woven design with a cropped silhouette, and is finished with a monochrome striped pattern.”
Bella’s representative later spoke out and said the actress was gifted with the jacket during a photoshoot, where she was told it was faux fur. They added that she’ll no longer wear it since she’s now aware of what it’s actually made out of.
