Do not mess with Bella Thorne! The actress loves to post sexy photos of herself on social media in revealing outfits, but don’t get it twisted: only she is allowed to decide how much or how little she wants to show online. That’s why fans are praising the 21-year-old for the way she handled a person who hacked into her phone and threatened to leak her nude photos online. She got one step ahead of the hacker by leaking the nude pictures herself and taking her power back in the process.
The Famous in Love star shared screenshots of a text message conversation between her and her hacker. The hacker sent her one of her own topless mirror selfies, and wrote, “WYA SMH.” When Bella didn’t respond, the hacker texted, “YO BELLA.”
After the second message, she responded. “Feels so weird someone I don’t know looking at my personal s–t,” she wrote. As if that wasn’t violating enough, the hacker sent her more of her own nudes, including videos of her bare breasts. That’s when Bella decided to take control back from the hacker and she posted screenshots of the nudes on Twitter, along with a statement.
“Yesterday, as u [sic] all know all my s–t was hacked. For the last 24 hours, I have been threatened with my own nudes. I feel gross, I feel watched, I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see. He has sent me multiple nude photos of other celebs, he won’t stop with me or them. He will just keep going,” she wrote. “For too long, I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I’m f–king sick of it. I’m putting this out because it’s MY DECISION NOW U DON’T GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME.”
“I can sleep tonight better knowing I took my power back. U can’t control my life, u never will. Here’s the photos he’s been threatening me with, in other words, here’s my boobies,” she continued. “So here, f–k u, and the last 24 hours I have been crying instead of celebrating my book while doing my book press. Oh yea, the FBI will be at your house shortly, so watch. Your. Mother. F–king. Back.”
