Actor Kyle Massey, who starred as Cory Baxter in the Disney Channel shows That’s So Raven and Cory in the House, has been charged with a felony count for immoral purposes in King County Superior Court in Washington.
Prosecutors allege the crime happened between December 2018 and January 2019 when Massey sent pornographic material to a 13-year-old girl.
People reported that the girl met Massey with her mother when she was four years old and stayed in touch with Kyle. She also claimed that while pursuing her career in the entertainment field, he held himself out as a fatherly figure.
In November 2018, the girl reached out to Massey via text about a possible audition for “Cory in the House.” Massey suggested she move from Seattle to live with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles.
A month later, it was reported that Kyle friended the eighth-grader on his Snapchat and sent her “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images and videos.”
The minor’s family sought $1.5 million from Massey for intentionally sought damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress, harmful matter sent intending to seduce a child, and annoying or molesting a minor.
In March 2019, Kyle Massey responded to the lawsuit, claiming he was being extorted.
"No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct."
According to the King County Superior Court, Kyle failed to appear Monday for an arraignment, and a deferred bench warrant was issued. His next hearing is scheduled for July 12, 2021.
