Bella Throne is moving on!
The former Disney star was spotted kissing Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo in San Diego, California, on Wednesday, days after announcing her breakup from Mod Sun.
Thorne, 21, was dressed casually in a black windbreaker and a pair a converse as she leaned over a table for a little PDA with 25-year-old Mascolo, who part of the duo Benji & Fede. She revealed on Monday that she and Mod Sun -- who were in an open relationship -- had gone their separate ways after over a year together; she split from her girlfriend, YouTube star Tana Mongeau, in February.
Thorne posted on Instagram about feeling "lonely" on Monday, but on Thursday, she was feeling much more herself. "Happy girl was sad girl and needed a break to breathe. Running myself down and now I feel better. Thank u😍," she captioned a photo of herself basking in the sun.

Finding her happiness is of utmost importance to Thorne, who told ET last March that Mod Sun's positive attitude is one of the things that attracted her to him.
"It was definitely meeting someone that's just so happy," she said. "That's his whole thing and for me coming from someone who's a little bit glass half-empty, it really is nice for me to have someone on my back that's like, 'No, it's good, it's good, it's good,' even when it's bad. You're always your harshest critic, [and] your significant other -- those are the people that build you up."
"I definitely have changed so much of my mindset," she added about whether Sun had subsequently made her a happier person. "Or when I see me going towards the negative, I'm like, 'Bella go towards the positive.'"
