AceShowbiz - %cBella Thorne% voices her support for the anti-sexual misconduct campaign Time's Up. On Sunday, January 7, the 20-year-old former Disney darling took to her Instagram account to share her own shocking story of sexual abuse.

"I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14..when I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it," she began writing. "All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again."

The "Famous in Love" actress later shared the abuse finally stopped, saying, "Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did." But she noted that "some of us aren't as lucky to get out alive." She concluded, "Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup."

Fans quickly rallied behind her and showered her with supportive messages in the comment section. "Wow. Damn. You truly never know what a person is going through... I never realized how strong this woman was! The most beautiful souls are typically the ones who have been damaged but survived. You're beautiful Bella. Truly," a fan commented. Similarly, another fan expressed his/her gratitude toward the red-headed beauty, writing, "Thanks Bella! You seriously help a lot of people more then you know.."

The devastating revelation arrived after the actress previously shared on Twitter that she was molested. Responding to an internet troll who commented on Bella's photo, she snapped back, "Yeah I was [molested]. So it wasn't Disney."

Bella was not the only celebrity participating in the Time's Up movement. Dozens of stars wore black on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes. It was to stand in solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault. Bella also declared that she would be wearing black today. "Time's up, b***h!" she said on her Instagram Stories.
