Kyle Massey, who rose to fame with his roles as Cory Baxter on Disney’s “That’s So Raven” and “Cory in the House,” has been charged with one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.
According to TMZ, Massey is accused of sending sexually explicit content to a 13-year-old girl during the months of December 2018 and January 2019. The charges are connected to a $1.5 million civil suit filed in 2019, where Massey was accused of sending photos of his erect penis and sexually explicit text messages to the then 13-year-old girl.
Massey also reportedly failed to appear for his arraignment Monday (June 28) in King County Criminal Court in Washington.
TMZ reports that the girl’s lawyer advised her to drop the civil suit because they didn’t believe Massey had enough money to make the lawsuit worth it. After the case was dropped, the girl’s legal team went to the Sheriff’s Office to file a report. It was also revealed by the girl’s mother that Massey had known her daughter since she was 4-years-old.
The mother also gave authorities a thumb drive that contained the explicit material Massey allegedly sent.
Massey responded to the allegations at the time, claiming he was being extorted.
