Disney Channel alum Kyle Massey, 29, is facing a felony charge for allegedly sending pornographic content to a 13-year-old girl in Dec. 2018 and Jan. 2019. The ‘That’s So Raven’ actor has been charged with one felony for allegedly sending explicit texts and videos to a 13-year-old girl, according to TMZ and Variety. Massey was reportedly charged with one count of immoral communication with a minor on June 14 in King County, Washington. He failed to show up for his arraignment on June 28th.
The charge against Massey stems from a 2019 civil lawsuit, in which the underage victim sued the actor for $1.5 million for allegedly sending the pornographic content via Snapchat during the months of December 2018 and January 2019. The lawsuit also revealed that Massey and the 13-year-old met, alleging that she met Kyle over a decade ago at Universal City in California while with her mother. The young girl was interested in pursuing an acting career, according to the lawsuit, and Massey stayed in touch, reportedly offering to help the teen. In Nov. 2018, Kyle allegedly offered the teen a place to stay with him and his girlfriend while he planned to help her find an agent for her acting career. Massey reportedly added the teen on Snapchat, and sent her “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos.”
Massey appeared on That’s So Raven from 2003 to 2007 and also starred in the spinoff Cory in the House from 2007 to 2008.
