Giving lip. Bella Thorne’s lips looked noticeably larger when she hit the red carpet ahead of the Jingle Ball in LA on Friday, Dec. 1. The 20-year-old actress took to Instagram earlier in the day to let her followers know that her plumper pout was the result of an allergic reaction to something she ate, but some fans weren’t convinced. They accused Bella of getting injections and even attacked her for trying to emulate lip kit queen Kylie Jenner. Check it out in the video below.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Bella has ignited lip injection speculation. Back in January, the Disney Channel alum shared a selfie, in which her kisser appeared cosmetically enhanced. At the time, fans criticized the “Jersey” singer for seemingly paying a visit to a plastic surgeon’s office.
“You’re overdoing it with the lips. Just stop already!” one fan wrote, while another feared that lip injections could be the catalyst for a future plastic surgery addiction for Bella. “OMG Bella no. You’re such a natural beauty and too young for this! The more you do this, the more you’ll get addicted. Pls know that you don’t need this.”
While the former Shake It Up! star has never confirmed any plastic surgery rumors (even that one about her alleged boob job), she did reveal during a 2015 interview with Cosmopolitan that, as a female, her self-esteem is often affected by society’s inclination to judge women solely based on their physical appearance.
“If a girl wears a bathing suit, she is a ho and is body-shamed. If you don’t show your body, you’re a prude,” Bella said at the time, adding that her breasts used to be one of her biggest insecurities. “I was always flat-chested, and that really gave me a complex growing up. Once I stopped stressing about them, they grew.”
