Bella Thorne has come out as pansexual after recently discovering what it means for herself.
The 21-year-old former Disney child star had previously identified as bisexual but told Good Morning America since learning about pansexuality, which does not consider sex or gender, she has had a self awakening.
Thorne explained: “I’m actually pansexual and I didn’t know that. Somebody explained to me really thoroughly what that is.
“You like beings. You like what you like. Doesn’t have to be a girl or a guy or a he or she or they or this or that. It’s literally you like personality.
“You just like a being.”
The Shake It Up actress is currently in a relationship with Italian pop singer Benjamin Mascolo and she posted pictures from a holiday in Sicily last month.
The Big Love star was previously in a polyamorous relationship with internet personality Tana Mongeau and American rapper Mod Sun.
Other celebrities to have spoken out about identifying as pansexual include Miley Cyrus, Kesha and Moonlight actress Janelle Monae.
Thorne hit the headlines last month when she became embroiled in a public spat with Whoop Goldberg.
Thorne chose to publish nude photographs of herself on social media after being threatened with blackmail by a hacker who claimed to have stolen the pictures.
Goldberg said on The View that Thorne only had herself to blame for taking the pictures in the first place. Thorne hit back calling Goldberg “sick and disgusting”.
