Last month, we all felt for 19-year-old Bella Thorne when it was reported that she was left feeling “used” by 34-year-old reality star Scott Disick.
The teen had been papped cosying up to Scott in Cannes after a string of speculation that they were embroiled in a romantic relationship, with fans being particularly stunned by a photo of Scott seemingly grabbing Bella’s breast.
In an even more alarming turn of events, the pictures were quickly followed by more snaps – this time of Scott getting up, close and personal with his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli, just hours later.
Bella jetted out of Cannes soon after, reuniting with her sister in the US as sources told TMZ that she had been left “devastated” by Scott’s antics, and she told a fan on Twitter that she wasn’t talking to the father-of-three.
However, the actress has now opened up about what really happened in Cannes, insisting that there are no bad feelings between herself and Scott – and even explaining what was really going on in that grope snapshot.
Speaking about how she first met the famous lothario, Bella told Complex: “I throw a lot of house parties, and that’s how I meet these people. They come to my house party and they’re, like, ‘Yo, I heard you’re having a party,’ and I’m just, like, ‘OK’.
“That’s how I met Scott — he came to a house party of mine and I was, like ‘hi’.”
However, the teen insists that she only left Cannes due to Scott’s heavy partying, adding: “Scott is really nice, sweet, charming. I don’t drink, and he really drinks a lot. And it just ended up…
“I just wasn’t down. I was like, ‘I gotta leave.’ We were [at Cannes] a day and a half before I was like I’m booking my flight and leaving. I love to go out and have fun, I love to f*cking dance, but I just don’t party hardcore like that and it was way too much for me.
“I was like, ‘Woah, this is not the way I live my life, bruh.’”
And discussing that infamous pic, Bella has surprisingly defended Scott’s honour, claiming that he was actually being a bit of a gent when he groped her chest.
She explained: “Honestly, my nipple came out of my bikini and he tried to fix it for me and it looks like he’s grabbing my boob.
“That’s very nice of you to actually not sit there and stare at my nipple because my boobs are big.
“They come out of my shirt all the time! You can’t keep those suckers down.”
Well, that settles that then… Although we can’t help but wonder what Kourtney Kardashian makes of it all.
