HOLLYWOOD, California — It’s becoming less and less of a shock when a celebrity comes out as gay or bisexual.

Former Disney star Bella Thorne is the latest star to do so.

It is who she is dating that might surprise some people.

On Monday, Thorne retweeted a picture of her kissing a woman who appears to be Bella Pendergast.

Pendergast is Thorne’s best friend and the ex-girlfriend of Thorne’s brother, Remy.

On Tuesday, a fan asked Thorne on Twitter if she was bisexual.

Thorne retweeted the question with the reply “Yes.”

A few hours later, she thanked her fans for “all the accepting tweets.”

Just last week, Thorne announced her breakup with boyfriend Gregg Sulkin. They had been dating for more than a year.

Thorne had been dropping hints about her relationship with Pendergast over the past few weeks.

She called her her “soulmate” and her “gorgeous girl” in recent tweets.

Thorne rose to fame back in 2010 on the Disney Channel show “Shake It Up!”

According to IMDB, her recent roles included “The DUFF,” “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” and “Scream: The TV Series.”
