Bella Thorne is big-time pounding her birthday cake, with a little cupcake to top it off. The former Disney star, singer, and “Life of a Wannabe Mogul” author turned 23 ahead of the weekend, with a mammoth set of photos on Bella’s Instagram documenting what she called her “birthday week.” Bella, followed by 23.9 million, wrapped up the celebrations with her hottest set of photos to date, also captioning them “BIRTHDAY B-TCH.” Check out the snaps, plus Bella’s OnlyFans scandal below.
Scroll for the photos. Bella, recently in the news for causing a giant scandal as she signed up to adult subscription site OnlyFans – and pocketing $1 million in 24 hours from it – had kept up the racy vibes. The “Midnight Sun” actress had been photographed kneeling in sexy pink-and-white thigh high stockings, also flaunting her curves in Chanel undies with pomegranate and chain prints on them.
Bella, also rocking sheer pink elbow gloves and a little princess crown, was surrounded by layered, frosted cake. She chose the mini cupcake for a little lick.
Keep scrolling for more photos. Bella kept her caption of “BIRTHDAY B-TCH” short, but the response was big. Leading the way in the comments section is Italian pop star boyfriend Benjamin Mascolo. “Leave some cake for me,” he cheekily wrote.
The response from fans wasn’t exclusively positive, though, with many reminding Bella of the mess she caused by joining OnlyFans. The star, under fire for charging $200 for nude photos that weren’t nude, also caused a messy storm as sex workers accused her of ruining their livelihoods. OnlyFans introduced a $100 tipping cap shortly after Bella joined.
Bella, who joins celebrities on OnlyFans including rapper Cardi B and model Blac Chyna, has both defended her presence on the site and apologized to sex workers forming an estimated 750,000-strong workforce on it.
“Remove the stigma behind sex, sex work, and the negativity that surrounds the word SEX itself by bringing a mainstream face to it that’s what I was trying to do, to help bring more faces to the site to create more revenue for content creators on the site,” Thorne wrote on Twitter.
Bella, saying that she felt she was helping existing sex workers on OnlyFans, then issued an apology. The Florida native wrote:
“I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalize the stigmas.”
“And in trying to do this I hurt you. I have risked my career a few times to remove the stigma behind sex work, porn, and the natural hatred people spew,” she added.
As The Blast reported, fans predicting that Bella’s join would crash the site were right. The platform was briefly out-of-order after the “Infamous” star signed up.
