BELLA Thorne has released her own topless selfies after being threatened by a hacker.
The 21-year-old actress decided to “take the power back” after an unknown person messaged her a series of her own topless photos and videos after hacking her social media page.
Sharing a screenshot of the conversation, with the hacker’s phone number on display, it can be seen that the individual sent Bella a topless mirror selfie and the message: “Wya [where you at] smh [shake my head]”.
They then followed up with: “YO BELLA!!!” to which the former Disney star replied: “Feels so weird someone I don’t know looking at my personal s**t.”
A second screenshot shows more photos and videos of the beauty alongside the message: “Got all the videos.”
Accompanying the grabs, Bella wrote a heartfelt message – revealing that the assailant also had indecent images of other celebs.
She shared: “Yesterday, as you all know, my s**t was hacked.
“For the last 24 hours I have been threatened with my own nudes – I feel gross, I feel watched, I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see.
“He has sent me multiple nude photos of other celebs, he won’t stop with me or them he will just keep going.”
She added: “For too long I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I’m f***ing sick of it.
“I am putting this out because it’s MY DECISION NOW, YOU DON’T GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME.
“I can sleep tonight better [sic] knowing I took my power back. You can’t control my life, you never will.
“Here’s the photos he’s been threatening me with, in other words, here’s my boobies.
“So here, f*** you, and the last 24 hours I have been crying instead of celebrating my book while doing my book press.”
Bella concluded the empowering message with: “Oh yeah, the FBI will be at your house shortly so watch your motherf***ing back.”
She captioned the three images: “F*** you and the power you think you have over me.
“I’m going to write about this in my next book.”
Bella’s fans praised her for her response to the hacker, with one replying: “You took the power back from this piece of s***.
“That’s real strength. I love you.”
The star later told The Hollywood Reporter that she doesn’t want to “ruin” the hacker as she believes that they are only young.
She explained: “This kid sounds like he’s 17, as much as I’m so angry and wanted to f*** him up over doing this to people I just wanted to teach him a lesson.
“He’s still a kid and we make mistakes, this mistake is a bad one. But I don’t want some 17 year old’s whole life ruined because he wasn’t thinking straight and being a dumba**.
“Plus, he’s obviously smart so if he got on the right side of the tracks he could actually possibly help our community and be an alliance.
“You can’t always tear someone down for their bad sides but more so build up their good sides.”
Before threatening Bella, the hacker had targeted her Twitter account, sharing racist messages and changing her profile picture.
The actress’ account has now been restored.
Last January, Bella’s fans rallied around her after she took to Instagram to reveal that she was sexually abused until the age of 14.
The star spoke out in response to the Time’s Up movement, writing: “I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember until I was 14… When I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night.
“Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again. Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did.”
