If you saw a video purporting to be Famous in Love star Bella Thorne masturbating on Snapchat this week, it’s a hoax.

The rumor started after a video of what appeared to be 19-year-old Thorne masturbating in the front seat of a car started making the rounds Thursday evening. In it, she says, “Oh finally, I really needed a father.”

As Jezebel points out, sites like ONTD (link NSFW) ran with the story and treated the footage as authentic:

Thorne nipped the rumors in the bud on Twitter late Thursday night, stating, “I don’t even masterbate [sic] like that. Where’s the vibrator thooo.”

Jezebel‘s Bobby Finger got to the bottom of the footage’s origins.

“The video is actually a composite!” he wrote. “The masturbation footage is of someone else (perhaps ripped from internet porn), while the footage of Thorne was taken from an old Snapchat video of the actress moaning about how thrilled she was to have ‘finally’ purchased a coffee frother.”

And there you have it. Masturbation video = hoax, coffee frothers = exciting.
