Annabella Avery Thorne is the accomplished young woman known as Bella Thorne. She is an actress, model, author, and musician from the United States. She got her breakthrough at Disney, and she expanded her career from there. As of 2022, Bella has an estimated net worth of $12 million.
Bella was born on October 8, 1997, in Pembroke Pines, Florida. She is one of four children of Tamara and Delancey Reinaldo Thorne. Her three other siblings also grew up to be actors. However, their father died in 2007, and they were raised by their mom alone.
She grew up in a suburban environment and was diagnosed with dyslexia in first grade. She was ridiculed as a child due to her condition. Because of this, she was home schooled. She claimed in 2010 that she had conquered dyslexia by reading all she could see.
Her upbringing wasn’t easy. Aside from bullies, she dealt with an unnamed sexual abuser from when she was 6 until she turned 14 years old. Furthermore, they were very poor. And this was the reason she started acting.
Thorne’s first film performance was as an extra in the 2003 film Stuck on You, in which she was uncredited. Since then, she’s appeared in a number of film and TV projects. It was around 2010 that she got recognition from major companies.
In Season 4 of HBO’s Big Love, Thorne took over for Jolean Wejbe as Tancy “Teenie” Henrickson. Bella got her big break after this. She appeared in Disney Channel’s Shake It Up as CeCe Jones with Zendaya, with whom she shares a good friendship to this day.
After signing on for the show, she began attending three dancing classes every night because she wasn’t a dancer before this. This paid off well as the show ran for three seasons.
Music is also responsible for making Bella famous. Watch Me, Thorne’s debut single as a singer, was released in 2010 when she was still at Disney. Then, she released her first album, Made in Japan, in 2012.
She reportedly secured a deal in 2013 to publish a book series, beginning with her debut novel, Autumn Falls. Around this time, she got big contracts in acting as well.
Her most successful gigs were with Adam Sandler in Blended, her recent romantic drama titled Midnight Sun. With the fortune she garnered, Bella was able to start her own record label, Filthy Fangs, in 2018.
Aside from writing, singing, and acting, Bella Thorne also has other ways of showcasing her talent. Thorne’s directorial debut on Pornhub was revealed in August 2019. She helped produce the adult film Him & Her.
Thorne also has an OnlyFans account. This was quite a controversy, but Bella doesn’t seem to mind. In just her first day on the subscription service, she quickly earned $1 million.
Bella purchased a home for $2 million, which she later sold. Now, she lives in Sherman Oaks, California and is currently engaged to an Italian vocalist named Benjamin Mascolo.
