Bella Thorne Reveals She Was Sexually Abused in Her Childhood Until Age 14

Bella Thorne speaks out about suffering sexual abuse as a child

While the Time's Up movement rallied men and women in Hollywood with bold sartorial and social statements at the Golden Globes, those dining at the Beverly Hilton weren't the only ones to ride the evening's wave of empowerment.

The former Disney child star identified herself as a victim of childhood sexual abuse in a post shared on her Bella Thorne Instagram profile yesterday.

She continued: "Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did".

Back in December a troll tweeted about the actress: 'What did Disney do to this girl?!

She says the manhandle finished when she "at last had the mettle" to bolt her entryway around evening time and simply sit by everything night, saying she was, "sitting tight for somebody to exploit my life once more".

It is fearless of Thorne, who has vocally criticized slut-shaming in the past, to share her own story so she can raise awareness about others experiencing sexual and physical abuse.

Hours before the show, the 20-year-old actress opened up about her own sexual abuse story, while declaring her support for the Time's Up movement. I think she was molested?' "Please today stand up for every soul (that's mistreated)".

Prior to her shocking tweet in December, back in September, Thorne shared an unretouched photo of herself from her shoot with GQ Mexico, hoping to inspire body positivity and demolish stereotypes of ideal celebrity bodies.

And on Monday, the actress told a Twitter follower that she knew her alleged abuser.

"I'm on Twitter reading about all the people sharing your sexual abuse stories with me from mine and I just want to say I'm really proud of all you guys", she said in tears.

"I'm really proud of all you guys. Peace, I adore you folks".
