Is Bella Thorne Dating Controversial YouTuber Sam Pepper? Fans Are Upset
The actress is reportedly dating controversial YouTube star Sam Pepper (does Thorne have a thing for guys with last names starting with “P”?) and fans are not thrilled by the prospect.
Dating rumors swirled when The DUFF star turned up on Pepper’s Snapchat story. In one photo, she could be seen standing in front of a mirror with the words “You[‘re] so pretty” scrawled across in lipstick—to which Pepper agreed, “True”—and in another appeared to be holding his hand.

In 2016, the infamous YouTuber, known for his controversial and sometimes ethically questionable videos, came under fire for sexual assault allegations after allegedly groping women with a “fake hand” for a prank, Hollywood Life reports.
Thorne fans, meanwhile, have expressed their disappointment over the news of Thorne’s possible new relationship on Twitter:
