Bella Thorne claims she was 'molested my whole life' in new Instagram post
Former Disney actress Bella Thorne claims that she has suffered constant sexual assaults from a young age.
In a series of candid Instagram posts, Throne appeared topless and shared a poem, as well as a number of her personal anxieties with her social media followers. Chief amongst these was her outrage at apparently having to endure a lifetime of objectification before she went on to add that she had been "molested [her] whole life."
Thorne wrote: What is wrong with me? Why do I always need Validation from everyone but mostly men... Everyone keeps telling me to be single, be alone, and make your self happy. But All those things sound so f*cking scary to me. all I want is him. I want him to hold me, I want him to love me, I want him to tell me it's ok, I want him to look me in the eyes and let me know I'm accepted. Why? Because I can't accept myself. [sic]"
She continued: For some reason in my head I'm just not f*cking good enough. Not good enough for him or Her or anyone else. And if it's not him I just look for the 'next' him, or her Why can't I just look for the next me? Find me and accept me. Was it because I was molested my whole life. Exposed to sex at such a young age it's all I know how to offer to the world...or is it because I was raised to think I wasn't good enough. [sic]"
She added: "But it doesn't matter what happened to me.. What matters is whats happening to me right now. I can't blame my childhood, in fact I can't blame anyone for anything. All I can do is blame me. I blame me for not loving myself. I blame me for not thinking I'm attractive, I blame me for putting this on everyone around me. Expecting people to love me enough for me to love myself. [sic]"
Thorne has recently gone through upheaval in her personal life. Earlier this year she broke up with Mod Sun and Tana Mongeau - whom she had been pursuing polyamorous relationships with - and had had nude pictures of herself leaked to the internet by hackers.
Not only that, but Throne also later caught flack from actress Whoopi Goldberg over her leaked nudes. In an appearance on The View, Goldberg opined that Thorne should have been more responsible regarding her scandalous pictures, stating: "If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself."
She added: "Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it, and if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I’m sorry. You don’t get to do that."

Taking to Instagram in response, Thorne later wrote: "Dear Whoopi, I have loved u for so long but honestly I’m so displeased and saddened by your response to [Thorne’s leaked photos]. Blaming girls for taking photos in the first place? Is sick and honestly disgusting. [sic]"
