This has not been a good year for Disney Channel Alum Bella Thorne. Between failing movie roles and drama with Scott Disick, the 20-year-old has had it rough and it doesn’t look like 2018 will be any better.
The trailer for the movie starring Bella and Patrick Schwarzenegger titled “Midnight Sun” was recently released. Thorne stars as a girl with a rare condition who can’t leave the house during the daytime.
She falls in love with a boy from her neighborhood and, of course, her health issue poses a problem. The story line seems sweet and would probably do well if a movie titled “Everything Everything” (starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robertson) didn’t come out with an alarmingly similar plot in May of this year.
Fans quickly flocked to the movie’s official social media account to point out the likeness between the two films.
We will just have to wait until “Midnight Sun” is released in theaters in March of 2018 to see how well it does.
On December 1, Thorne attended the Jingle Ball concert with her co-star with her lips looking plumper than usual.
Followers were quick to call out the change on her face.
One commented: “Yet another girl in the industry injecting plastic into her body this is so sad.”
Another said: “Bella why in the world would you put that stuff in your lips it looks horrible.”
Some of the critics stuck around to find out that the star didn’t actually get lip injections — she had an allergy attack from something that she ate which she discussed on her Instagram story.
This comes after Bella has had a whirlwind of a year. The young starlet was at the center of controversy when she was spotted cozying up to Scott Disick in Cannes when he left her to be with other girls.
After that Thorne received harsh criticism for her performance in a Netflix movie.
Most recently, her ex-boyfriend Lil Peep tragically died of an overdose.
Hopefully, Bella has more luck in 2018.
