Bella Thorne Reveals Heartbreaking Reason For Disney Stardom

Bella Thorne has dramatically opened up about the devastating circumstances that forced her to become a Disney star.

Her image has certainly changed since her Disney days when she played CeCe Jones in the hit show Shake It Up.

After she received criticism online for looking different, Bella sadly revealed that she took on the role to save her family from homelessness.  


When one Twitter user wrote, “If ur plan is to be edgy and controversial then maybe you shouldn't have started ur career on Disney channel???,” Bella responded with some heartbreaking truths.

“You're right when I was about to live on the streets with no money and a whole family I shoulda turned down the offer,” the 19-year-old wrote.

Speaking to MTV podcast Happy Sad Confused earlier this year, Thorne admitted her true motivation for accepting the role when she was just 13.

"We were about to live physically on the street if I didn't have that role," she said.

"We were living off Stouffer's coupons, and that's all we had to eat every day. That may not sound like a big deal to everybody, but when you're a single mom raising four kids with debt and you have nothing to your name, it's f***ing s***ty,” Bella revealed.
