Bella Thorne scolds autograph hunter for 'inappropriate' behaviour

Bella Thorne has revealed she recently told off an autograph collector after they tried to get her to sign ‘topless’ and ‘underage’ photos of herself.

The 25-year-old star explained she normally signs photos of herself, but in this case, felt it was ‘inappropriate’.

Acknowledging that ‘everyone needs to make a living’, Bella noted she offered to sign a different snap, but the man chasing her signature asked: ‘Aren’t they all sexy?’

Speaking in a new interview, Bella shared: ‘I signed things, yeah. I don’t really care but I did tell someone off yesterday.

‘I normally don’t tell them off but they offended me. It was this guy and he was shoving photos in front of me and I looked away for a second and looked back and there was a photo of me from my GQ magazine cover.’

She added to The Hollywood Reporter: ‘It’s super sexy and my butt is out and I’m wearing lingerie and I’m topless. I said I wouldn’t sign that and he took it away and then put it back in front of me again.

‘I said, “No, I’m not signing that”. He pulled out another photo of a magazine with another sexy image. He was like, “Come on, Bella. Sign it for me”. I didn’t like it. It was inappropriate!’

The former Disney star added: ‘There was some stuff there from a Candies campaign that I did when I was 16 and it was clear that he wanted me to sign things that were viewed as sexy and even underage and I was like, “Give me something else”.’

It comes after Bella claimed that she was ‘almost fired’ by the Disney Channel aged 14 after attracting backlash for wearing a bikini on the beach.

Speaking late last year, the Time Is Up star alleged that her career was almost derailed somewhere around 2011 or 2012 when she was pictured wearing a two-piece in a fan photo at the age of 14.

Bella was Zendaya’s co-star on Shake It Up! from 2010 and 2013, as well as guesting on other popular shows like Good Luck Charlie and Phineas and Ferb.

‘One time I almost got fired off the Disney Channel because I was 14, and I wore a two-piece on the beach,’ the actress recalled in a new interview with some bewilderment.

‘This stylist that I was hanging out with put this chain on me that’s, like, a body chain. I don’t know? I don’t care. There was a fan, they got a photo of me on the beach. I almost got fired. It was all over the media, it was literally viral in that time. It was, “How dare this little girl do this? This is so disgusting”,’ she said.

Bella then shared on Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low podcast that people were ‘putting Disney under pressure to fire me’ after ‘sexualising’ her for wearing a bikini – but the studio chose not to. has contacted Disney and Candies for comment.
