Bella tears

Bella Thorne appeared on Logan Paul’s podcast “Impaulsive,” and spoke about her new book, photoshop, mental health, and her history of being sexual abused.
She has spoken out about sexual abuse before, but she went into more detail on the podcast. For example, she explained why she had never named her abuser.
“I am selfish because I won’t just put myself through the pain of describing every story in detail that I’ve spent so long trying to forget,” she said. “And have reworked my mental brain so I don’t have flashbacks all the time and to go back there again, over, and over, and over.”
She added that it’s hard for victims to come forward because they are treated like “villains.”
“After you get beaten down again, and again, and again, you have to just keep fighting,” she said, when asked what advice she would give to other survivors of sexual abuse. “Even when you feel like it might kill you.”

Thorne has publicly spoken about being sexually abused between the ages of 6 and 14 several times.

“I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14,” she wrote on Instagram in January. “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.”

She added: “Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup”
