Bella Thorne was a staple on the Disney Channel for many years, but the “Shake It Up” star apparently almost lost her job when she was 14.

During Tuesday’s episode of Emily Ratajkowski’s “High Low With EmRata” podcast, Thorne opened up about many instances where she felt she was sexualized as a young girl.

“One time I almost got fired off the Disney Channel because I was 14, and I wore a two-piece on the beach,” Thorne said. “This stylist that I was hanging out with put this chain on me that’s, like, a body chain. I don’t know? I don’t care. There was a fan, they got a photo of me on the beach. I almost got fired. It was all over the media, it was literally viral in that time. It was, ‘How dare this little girl do this? This is so disgusting.’”

Thorne, who starred opposite Zendaya on “Shake It Up” from 2010 to 2013, explained that people were “putting Disney under pressure” to fire her, but ultimately they didn’t. “They were like, ‘Hey, we’re getting a lot of heat for this. Everyone’s getting heat for this because you’re in a bikini on a beach, so she needs to make sure she goes out in boy shorts and a loose t-shirt next time she’s at the beach.’”

During the episode, the actor, 25, also recounted a disturbing situation that happened four years before that.

“I had a director give me feedback once and I was 10. The casting director calls my agent and the agent calls my mom, and they’re like, ‘So she’s not moving forward because the director felt like she was flirting with him, and it made him really uncomfortable,’” Thorne said. “What the fuck are you talking about, man?! I don’t give a fuck what the fuck I said! I don’t care if I said, ‘Eat my pussy right now!’ She is 10 years old. Why ever would you think that?”

Disney Channel representatives did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

Bella Thorne has leveled a new charge of childhood sexualization.

The former Disney Channel star’s latest accusation was made while appearing on Emily Ratajkowski‘s podcast High Low With EmRata.

In the talk, Thorne claimed she was passed over for an acting job at the age of 10 after a casting director accused her of flirting with him. She did not name the person.

“I had a director give me feedback once and I was 10,” the 25-year-old actress shared. “The casting director calls my agent and the agent calls my mom, and they’re like, ‘So she’s not moving forward because the director felt like she was flirting with him and it made him really uncomfortable,’” Thorne recalled. “What the f— are you talking about, man?! I don’t give a f— what I said! I don’t care if I said, ‘Eat my p—y right now’! [I was] 10 years old. Why, why, would you ever think that?”

“Also, him feeling that it was a real issue,” Ratajkowski replied.

This isn’t the first time Thorne has raised the issue of her childhood abuse by older figures.

In her 2019 book, “The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray,” Thorne used poetry to tell about being molested by someone she declined to name from ages 6-14. That’s a time frame that covered her star turn as part of the Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” which ran from 2010-2013.

“He didn’t have to deal with the countless times he molested me, / he didn’t deal with the countless times I felt ashamed or disgusting,” Thorne, 21, wrote in the poem. She blamed “Stockholm syndrome” for not stopping the abuse and did not name he abuser. Stockholm syndrome is a mental condition that causes a captive to align their views with their captor.

The latest confession saw Thorne point out that the casting process wouldn’t allow her to be inappropriate.

“Also, you’re in a director session,” Thorne noted. “You can’t really say or do much. You do the scene, you say ‘hello,’ you walk out. There’s no time to like, ‘Let me go sit on your lap or make you feel uncomfortable.’ What the f— are you talking about, man?”

Thorne admitted she battles guilt from the incident.

“I’m trying to find almost fault in myself,” she said. “Like: ‘What did you do, Bella? What did you do that made him feel like this? And every time I’m like, ‘Bella, stop it.’ Even that thought right there is becoming part of the problem … it drives me crazy.”

Ratajkowski then concluded, “If you need a more f—ed up story about Hollywood and pedophilia and the sexualization of children, I don’t know that there is one.”

Bella Thorne has a new flame in her life!

Three months after calling off her year-long engagement to Benjamin Mascolo, the 24-year-old actress and singer is dating Mike Emms, the film and television producer behind Netflix’s popular Bad Vegan docuseries, PEOPLE can confirm.

“It’s new, and they’re having fun,” says a source close to the couple. “They’ve been dating for about a month.”

Earlier this week, Thorne and Emms were spotted at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights with a group of friends. An onlooker tells PEOPLE that Thorne was seen “dancing to The Weeknd’s music” as she navigated a maze.

Last month, Daily Mail reported that Thorne and Emms were spotted kissing while enjoying a yacht outing on vacation in Mykonos, Greece.

On Friday, Thorne posted a video of herself posing in a black one-piece bathing suit from the Mykonos trip to Instagram alongside the caption, “in my own little world.”

A rep for Thorne did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In June, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that she and Mascolo had split over a year after announcing their engagement.

“Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo have parted ways, calling off their engagement of over a year,” the source told PEOPLE at the time. “Their conflicting schedules led to a lot of time apart that eventually resulted in the breakup, but the two have parted ways amicably.”

Thorne and Mascolo were first linked in April 2019, just days after she announced her split from Mod Sun, with whom she and YouTuber Tana Mongeau had been in an open relationship.

Months later, the former Shake It Up star and Mascolo, 28, went Instagram official in June 2019. Three months later, the pair showed some PDA on the red carpet for the world premiere of Thorne’s directorial debut, Her and Him, at Oldenburg’s Film Festival in Germany.

Then, she and the Italian singer announced their engagement after nearly two years of dating three months later. “She said YES @bellathorne,” Mascolo shared on Instagram while Thorne shared a video of herself showing off her pear-shaped diamond engagement ring on her Instagram Story.

“Thank you for being amazing baby. I love you so much. Yay we’re getting married. Celebration in Italy and America both,” Mascolo said in a video shared on his Instagram Story.
