Who is this mystery mean girl Bella Thorne speaks of?

In November, the 18-year-old Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip actress described her to Seventeen. "She's in the business, and she's very, very mean. I stay away from her at all costs. I never say hello to her," she said, adding, "One of the reasons I don't like her is because she's been a billionaire since she was very little, and she's never had to work for anything in her life."

Thorne didn't reveal the mystery mean girl's identity during a HuffPost Live interview Wednesday, but she did clarify some of her comments after the quote was read back to her. "You know, there's a little part that's missing in there. It's not, 'I hate her because she's a billionaire.' It's, 'I don't like her because she is a billionaire and makes sure everyone knows that she is,' which is like, you know, I didn't grow up with money or anything like that," the actress said. "And even if I did...I'm not very much like that. But it's not necessarily about one person."

Thorne reiterated that her issue isn't with the mystery girl's wealth, saying, "If somebody wasn't flaunting it in a mean way to make other people feel bad about themselves, then I would not mind it. It would be, 'Go, girl! You do you. Good for you. I'm happy that you have a great life.' It's when people do it in certain types of ways that make you not appreciate them as much."

Having money isn't the problem, Thorne said. In fact, the teen queen added, "It's not something you should be ashamed of. You should be like, 'Hell, yeah! I worked hard and that's how I'm here now, and I'm proud. I'm proud of who I am.' And that's always good to let any girl know."

The former Disney Channel star said she spoke out in Seventeen to let young girls know that bullying is never OK, no matter their circumstances. "It's in Hollywood, too. It doesn't change like that. Our life is not so overly glamorous. It's exactly what you're going through, but there's photos taken of it," Thorne explained. "And that's kind of the difference. So, it's about bullying."
