Bella Thorne, born Annabella Avery Thorne, has revealed that she never learned to read or count.
Bella Thorne who is an American actress, model, singer, music video director and author revealed that she has never been taught how to read and count. The actress who recently made blazing headlines for releasing her own nude photos after someone threatened to leak them is known for being incredibly straightforward and not holding back despite what people think.
While being interviewed on the podcast chicks in the office about her book, The life of a Wannabe Mogul said:
“I don’t talk about it in this one, but in the third book it would be the fact that I never learned how to read and I learned how to read from reading scripts. She also said that she taught herself basic math, explaining that she “learned how to count from counting my dad’s cash.”
She continued by revealing the condition she suffered as a child,
“I remember when I started first grade. Right away, it was awful because I couldn’t read as well as the other kids. My brain mixed up letters like ‘B’ and ‘D’ and ‘M’ and ‘W.’ Dyslexia is different for everyone who has it. For me, it just makes it harder to read or write.”
She flaunted her accomplishments by adding,
“I was tone deaf and I now own a record label and I’m signed to Sony as an artist and I can sing a capella like a bitch ass so f— with me,” she explained. “I had $200 to my name by 18 and bought a house by 19. I’m writing a series and got an Oscar winner to play my mom. I’m out here doing stuff that people say is impossible.”
