Her father, who was Cuban, died in 2007 in a traffic accident. On her maternal side Thorne is of mostly Italian ancestry, with some Irish, English, Welsh, and German. Thorne has said that she was raised by a single mother who was supporting four children, and that they were very poor, which is why she worked as a child actress, to help support the family.
In a September 2017 appearance on Chelsea, Thorne told Chelsea Handler that she was bullied growing up because she was dyslexic, lived in a suburban area and spoke Spanish as her native language.
In January 2018, Thorne said she had been sexually abused from a young age until she was 14. She did not identify her abuser.
