Tik Tok is where teens go to express themselves, and they have a lot to say about relationships gone bad. A girl named Bella Dorlando has gone viral for her use of the platform to express some things about her ex-boyfriend, who she says cheated on her. The 18-year-old posts as @trapmoneybella.
Her vid made its way over to Twitter, too, and people love the way she dunks on the boy who did her wrong. In the short clip, Dorlando dances to a voicemail her ex left her, in which he cries about her dumping him over the alleged cheating.
“I tried all day to talk to you about this, and you’re just blowing me off. I’m telling you the truth, I’m telling you all this and you still don’t trust me,” he sobs, as she body-rolls.
“I’m sorry I went off on you,” he continues. “I don’t even know what to do. Like, I’m doing everything I can… You’re the only f**king person that actually cares about me and pushes me in the right direction. Without you, I’m just going to go back to f**king hell. I’m not forcing you to stay with me, though.”
No, you’re definitely not. She’s danced on from that responsibility. Dorlando told Mel Magazine that she got the voicemail in December 2018, and the two have been split since then.
But sometimes you just have more you need to say:
The trend has been picked up by other Tik Tok girls, who seemingly have an unending supply of voicemails from cheating and abusive exes.
Another 18-year-old, Tenley Earles, shared a video where her supposed ex-boyfriend screams at her for wearing leggings in a voicemail. She dances along to it, hitting some pretty good choreography:
“I’m not dating someone who’s got every f**king dude in the school looking at her,” he screams, like a psycho. “You want to do that? Don’t f**king be with me.”

Earles told Mel she posted the video because she wants people to know what an abusive relationship sounds like, especially other teen girls.
“I had a lot of girls reach out to me and say they were in the same situation and I gave them hope to get out of it,” she said.
But the formula isn’t just for ex-boyfriend voicemails. People are dancing to their exes terrible music, to voicemails from supposed friends gone south, and even parents arguing:

It might seem like dancing to serious pain is undercutting what it’s like to be in a bad relationship or situation, but for these girls, it’s a way to cope, share what they’re going through, and have a little bit of a cathartic release. Sometimes you really do have to dance it out so you can let it go.
