Bella Poarch was born on February 9, 1997, in the Philippines. Her biological parents were Filipino and she was raised by her grandmother in the slums until the age of three. She then was taken in by her adoptive family, their names are currently undisclosed by the TikTok star. Her adoptive father is a white American who had served in the US military and her adoptive mother is Filipino. Her adoptive parents met in Saudi Arabia where her adoptive father was stationed, before settling in the Philippines.
She lived on a farm in the Philipines with two older adopted sisters, her adoptive parents, and her brother. Several sources reveal that she and her adopted brother were heavily abused all throughout her childhood, up until her enrollment in the military. She had many responsibilities at the farm, even as young as seven years old.
She recounts that her adoptive sisters did not receive the same treatment as her. Poarch also said that her father was verbally and physically abusive, while her mother did not get involved. Her family, except her two older sisters who still live in the Philippines, moved to San Francisco for a couple of months to live with her aunt before the family moved to Texas when she was 13 due to her father's need for bypass surgery.
She said that the abuse had decreased, but still faced mental abuse from her father at home. We, unfortunately, don’t have images or names of her siblings or family as she has not been public about them, only revealing certain portions of her life to the media.
Because of the trauma that was left by her abusive father, Poarch has publicly expressed her support in the fight against anti-Asian racism and the rise in hate crimes against the Asian-American community. On March 19, 2021, she uploaded a video to TikTok to speak on the topic and spread the message.
She revealed in an interview saying that she could relate to these situations because she’s been “treated differently” and “randomly attacked and assaulted” as an Asian teen after moving to the U.S. from the Philippines.
