It’s super sexy and my ass is showing and I’m wearing lingerie and topless. I said I wouldn’t sign it and he first took it off then put it back in front of me again. So I said, ‘No, I won’t sign it.’ He pulled out another magazine picture with another sexy image and said, ‘Come on, Bella. Sign it for me.’ I did not like it. It was inappropriate“.

Only I was under 18 and it’s inappropriate“, continued Bella Thorne who thought back to some of the photos taken in the past that “I wouldn’t do it now“.
