AceShowbiz - Bella Thorne has reached out to make amends with her mother Tamara in a sweet Instagram post.
Earlier this year, Bella opened up about being sexually abused from the age of six, writing on Instagram: "I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14... Over and over I waited for it to stop."
While the actress didn't name the perpetrator, the words shocked her family, and her uncle (Tamara's brother) insisted he'd "never heard about any of this before now."
On Monday (July 22), the "Midnight Sun" star, 21, posted a selection of snaps of herself and 48-year-old Tamara online, alongside a heartfelt message asking for her forgiveness.
"Dear mother. I'm sorry for the words I have said. I needed to get them out from lingering underneath my skin..." she wrote. "I know your life hasn't been perfect and I know that that's why mine hasn't been either, everything in life is a mystery but what's not, is this infinite undying love I have for you."
"Our relationship is f**ked up but I'm glad we are here, and I'm grateful we have time to mend. I love you mommy," she added, before ending the post with a heart emoji.
"I'm actually a pansexual, and I didn't know that. Somebody explained that to me...," she shared. "You like what you like. Doesn't have to be a girl or a guy or... you know, a he, a she, a this, or that. It's literally, you like personality, like you just like a being."
