American actress and singer Bella Thorne has shared nude photos of herself on social media.
The 21-year-old star ‘took the power back’ after a hacker allegedly threatened to leak topless pictures of her, following her Twitter account being hacked last week.
Bella – best known for her role in the Disney show Shake It Up posted screenshots of messages from an anonymous person, sending the actress her own topless selfies as well as personal videos and texting: ‘YO BELLA! Got all the videos.’
Explaining why she was sharing the intimate pictures to Twitter, Bella wrote: ‘Yesterday as u all know all my s*** 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. ‘For too long I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I’m f***ing 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.’
The Midnight Sun star continued: ‘Here’s the photos he’s been threatening me with, in other words here’s my boobies. So here f*** 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***in. Back.’
While there were a number of crude replies to the pictures, many fans praised Bella for reclaiming the power in the awful situation.
