Former Disney actress and Shake it Up! star Bella Thorne claims she is pansexual in a recent interview.
During her media blitz while promoting her new book, The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray, Thorne spoke with Good Morning America’s Juju Chang where she indicated she was a panseuxal.
Thorne told Chang, “I’m actually pansexual and I didn’t know that.” She added, “Somebody explained to me really thoroughly what that is.” She then defined it, “You like beings. You like what you like. Doesn’t have to be a girl or a guy or a he or she or they or this or that. It’s literally you like personality. You just like a being.”
This isn’t the first time the actress has opened up about her sexuality. Back in 2016, she was asked by a fan on Twitter if she was bi-sexual. In which the actress said that indeed she was.

Thorne has been in the headlines throughout the summer. Before promoting her book she found herself in the middle of a hacking scandal where a hacker attempted to blackmail the actress in order to keep her nude photos from being released. But instead of paying off the hacker, she opted to just release them herself.
A few weeks later, during another press event for her book, she admitted that while employed with Disney, she had been the victim of sexual abuse while people within the studio knew of the abuse and did nothing.
Thorne’s new book is The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray. It is out now.
