In 2012 Belle became good friends with Gemma Andrews. They however later fell out over the affections of Sean Spencer. Gemma fell backwards and hit her head and later died of a brain haemorrhage. Belle was convicted of manslaughter and sent to juvenile detention. Upon her release, Belle started hearing voices from her late friend Gemma. In the end Belle went to a psychiatric unit. Upon her release she started to date much older doctor Dr Jermaine Bailey. Thinking she is a university student, he asks her out on a date. They start romancing. They try to cover their tracks.
Emma Barton finds out about Bailey abd Belle and blackmails him into lying about an illness or she will tell Cain Dingle, Belle's older half brother. Bailey was later found out, attacked by Cain and ended up losing his job. Oddly, he was employed by Belle's distant relatives Charity and Chas Dingle at The Woolpack. Belle kept hearing voice from an imaginary friend called "Ellie". Ellie kept saying things to Belle that she is a waster and deserves everything she gets. In August 2016 Cain, Zak and Lisa realised Belle was hearing voice again. Belle ran away and slept rough on the streets. The police tried to find her. A body was found in the area where Belle's phone had been found. Lisa and Zak went to identify the body and thankfully it was not Belle.
In September 2016, Bailey reckoned Belle may have schizophrenia due to her hallucinations.
