American actor and rapper Kyle Massey has been allegedly charged with a felony for sending sexually explicit messages to a minor. The latest allegation comes less than two years after a 13-year-old girl reportedly sued the former Disney star for sending her graphic messages.
However, Kyle Massey previously refuted the claims on money extortion grounds. According to the latest report by TMZ, new documents show that the “Life is Ruff” star is being charged for sending sexually inappropriate messages to an underage girl.
The current case is being considered as a follow up to the 2019 lawsuit against Kyle Massey. As per reports, the minor girl sued the actor for $1.5 million in a civil suit.
Investigations regarding the case began after the girl approached local police. According to police records, the girl’s mother said that Massey first came across the girl when she was just 4 years old.
He continued to stay in touch and began sending her sexually improper material when she turned 13. Kyle Massey was set to appear in King County Criminal Court on Monday but reportedly did not attend the trial.
