The 20-year-old actress, who starred on Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” recently revealed she was once almost fired by the network for being photographed wearing a bikini back when she was 14.
In an interview with a YouTuber, Bella Thorne recounted the incident, when Disney Channel threatened to fire her for a picture that was taken of her wearing a black, lace-lined bikini.
“It was a sexy bathing suit”, she said. Although she didn’t think much of it at the time. She just simply liked the design that her mom had picked out for her. “It was cute”.
However, the network executives disagreed and threatened to end her career for real if she made another mistake.
After the incident, her agent was warned: “You’re lucky she has such a fan base that we can’t afford to fire her at this moment in time, but if she does one more other things, we will.”
This is A LOT of pressure for a kid!
Bella has since cut ties with Disney and is currently focusing her efforts on directing and on her music career. In the meantime, she literally wears whatever she wants!
We’re rooting for her! She hasn’t been afraid to experiment with edgy fashion choices since then.
