Bella Thorne Revealed That She Was Sexually Abused Until 14
Bella Thorne spoke about her sexual abuse in the past while expressing her support for the Time’s Up fundraising campaign, an anti-sexual campaign. The 20-year-old former star of the Disney Channel series , Shake It Up, last month tweeted a response to a person’s comment and confirmed that she was abused as a child, noting that Disney had nothing to do with it.
On Sunday, she wrote on Instagram , “I was sexually abused from the day I can remember until I was 14 … when I finally had the courage to close the door at night and sit there all night, waiting for someone to come back to take advantage of my life. ” “Time and again I waited for him to stop and he finally did,” he said. “But some of us are not so lucky to get out alive, please defend today every battered soul. #timesup.”
Thorne made his comments hours before dozens of stars looked dressed in black the #AlfombraRojaE! at the Golden Globes 2018 to show their support for the Time’s Up fundraising campaignto combat sexual misconduct, which was launched amid accusations of sexual harassment and harassment against producer Harvey Weinstein and a growing list of other men powerful inside and outside Hollywood.
Thorne will not attend the Golden Globes but she and many other stars have promoted the Time’s Up movement on social media before the ceremony. The campaign is a fundraiser for the Legal Defense Fund, a charity that helps victims of sexual misconduct find legal representation.
