Musician Drake Bell's ex-girlfriend, Melissa Lingafelt, has taken to her TikTok page to accuse him of verbal and physical abuse during their multi-year long relationship in the early 2000s​.

Aside from claiming that Bell abused her in multiple ways during their relationship, she also went on to mention that he allegedly cheated on her with underage girls while they were together, and provided screenshots of messages to attempt to validate these harrowing claims against the former 'Drake and Josh' star.

The 34-year old singer originally came under fire when Lingafelt shared her initial short TikTok that included the information, "Think you could hurt my feelings? I lived with and dated an alcoholic, abusive Drake Bell from 16-19."

Lingafelt dated the star up until roughly 2009, but has only now decided to share the information that Bell is allegedly abusive and engaged in sexual activities with underage girls during the peak of his fame while he was a 'Nickelodeon' television star and his music career was taking off.

The singer's ex began her message by saying, "First off I’d like to start out by saying, I don’t really care if anyone believes me, as this is my story and my life, and something that I went through. It wasn’t until recently that I actually realized that abuse isn’t something that all women have to go through."

Lingafelt then went on to detail exactly how and what transgressions Bell perpetrated during their time with one another, including the nature of his physical violence towards her.

"I moved in with him, I was singing. It wasn’t until about a year when the verbal abuse started. And when I say verbal abuse, imagine the worst type of verbal abuse you could ever imagine, and that was what I got. It then turned to physical — hitting, throwing, everything. At the pinnacle of it, he drug [sic] me down the stairs of our house on Los Feliz. My face hit every step on the way down. I have photos of this," Lingafelt went on to explain.

She then went on to detail in the subsequent videos about Bell's advances towards younger girls during their time together, even including screenshots of direct messages with alleged victims of the star who claimed that Bell committed statutory rape agains them when they were underage.

Despite Bell himself denying what his ex has claimed as recent times have transpired, many have taken to social media regardless to voice their opinions about the childhood actor given the information Lingafelt presented through TikTok.
