Fans thought Bella Thorne would get her happy ending with ex-fiancé Benjamin Mascolo, but it clearly wasn’t to be. The former Disney sweetheart told Nylon that she first met the Italian singer on Instagram in 2019 and later fell in love at Coachella. The timing coincided with the end of Thorne’s widely publicized throuple with singer Mod Sun and YouTuber Tana Mongeau, and consequently Thorne admitted to being “super sad” to meet Mascolo. Thankfully, though, she said, “He accepted me for everything I was during that time.”
By June, Thorne and Mascolo were Instagram officials. Two years later, their relationship heated up on the set of 2021 VOD romance film Time Is Up. In fact, CNN reported that Mascolo popped the question there. “I wrote the love letter on the back of our movie’s script,” he shared on Instagram Stories (via CNN). As a result of the film, “We came out on the other side and were stronger as a couple,” Mascolo told TooFab. “It was a win-win for everything.”
Mascolo and Thorne seemed so in love that their shock breakup rocked fans in June 2022. A source told People that the couple’s “conflicting schedules” led to their split, but neither Thorne nor Mascolo have spoken much about what went wrong. Now, Thorne could be finding solace in the arms of another potential love interest as she was spotted with the actor over the 4th of July weekend.
Are Bella Thorne and Ryan Eggold Dating?
Just like the fireworks on July 4th, Bella Thorne was in high spirits! Page Six reported that the OnlyFans star was spotted cozying up with actor Ryan Eggold at the Surf Lodge in Montauk, New York on July 3. There, the duo was scheduled to attend a dinner for Rosario Dawson’s fashion collaboration with Bloomingdale’s. Although both were on the guest list for the event, Thorne and the ‘The Blacklist’ actor never showed up for dinner. That’s because “they used to walk outside together drinking cocktails,” according to a source.
Page Six went on to point out that unlike her ex-boyfriends Tana Mongeau and Benjamin Mascolo — who are similar ages to Thorne — Eggold is 13 years older than her. However, Mod Sun is 11 years older than his ex-girlfriend, so Thorne is likely unfazed by any age difference. The Famous in Love actor was also linked to Scott Disick, who is older than Eggold at 39, in 2017.
At this time, it’s unclear if Thorne and Eggold were just having some good old-fashioned Independence Day fun, or if their outing could be the start of something more serious. Thorne previously spoke to Elite Daily about the importance of finding a supportive partner, explaining that “in relationships, everyone has their thing, everyone has their good and bad points.” So, instead of getting serious about dating someone new, Thorne might just be diving into the dating pool.
