Bella Thorne says she was molested from age 6 to 14 while working at Disney. She claims it was an open secret and people did nothing to stop the abuse. This is not the first time a child star has opened up.

The entertainment industry is still rife with issues related to the protection and care of children.

Corey Feldman was one of the first to kick open the door to the extent of children's abuse in Hollywood. He opened up about the abuse he suffered as a child actor in the 80's and 90's. Bellå has stated, "Everyone around me saw and did nothing."

Bella Thorne discussed the alleged molestation while promoting her upcoming book, The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray on BUILD Series.

In the interview, the starlet, who played CeCe Jones in Shake It Up, was asked by an audience member about the transition between being tightly controlled and to where she can now freely express herself.

Thorn stated:

"The transition, it's definitely tough. But it is what it is. It's like anything in my life. If you read the book, you'll be like, 'Haha, transitioning from Disney to this was f****** easy.' "

Everyone knows, but no one does anything

Bella continued:

"I don't know. Getting molested for f****** from when your six to your fourteen seems like way harder circumstances. You're physically abused all the time. It seems like a much more difficult situation than f****** having paparazzi following you since you were twelve. Um, I don't know. I was still being molested when paparazzi were still f****** following me.

So it's pretty hard in my mind to think of these big flashlight photographs, and everyone thinking they know me and talking about me, but having no idea the type of mistreatment that I was still dealing with at that time. That everyone around me saw and did nothing.

So, I don't know you tell me what's so hard. 'Cause that to me, way harder than any of this other shit I deal with daily."

As for Disney, the company has had a troubled history regarding the treatment of its young actors. Jordan Pruitt opened up about her own experiences on Facebook last December.

She detailed that an unnamed male figure had groomed her. The entertainment industry is still rife with issues related to the protection and care of children.

Elijah Wood would also comment on the problem of pedophiles and Hollywood stating, "Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated."

He added, "But as I made clear to the writer, I have no firsthand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen."

Let's hope Bellå and all those affected by this get the proper care, and those at fault are brought to justice.
