Friends of Bella Thorne are reportedly against the idea of the Shake It Up actress getting closer to Scott Disick after they sparked rumours of romance with a dinner date on 15 May.

According to HollywoodLife, friends and family of the Famous star "don't approve" of her getting cosy with the reality star as they feel he "will hurt her".

"Bella and Scott are hanging out but Bella's friends and family don't approve whatsoever," a source told the gossip website. "They worry Scott will hurt her".

However, the source also said that 19-year-old Thorne "isn't taking their relationship too seriously".

"She's just being young and having fun and doesn't really care what people think or what their opinions are. Basically, she's being Bella and no one is going to change that."

Bella and 33-year-old Disick, ex-partner of Kourtney Kardashian and father of three, ignited dating rumours when they were spotted on a dinner outing on 15 May.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the pair enjoyed dinner together at Catch in West Hollywood and then went clubbing at The Nice Guy, which they followed up by listening to live music at The Peppermint Club.

The duo left together in Disick's car at 1.30am, a source told the celebrity news website.

It seems like Scott and Kourtney, 38, are moving on as she told her ex-partner that she was never getting back together with him after he was caught bringing a girl to their family vacation to Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, Kourtney is reportedly enjoying the company of model Younes Bendjima. "Kourtney and Younes are hooking up," a source previously told Entertainment Tonight, adding "It's not serious yet."
