'That's So Raven' Star Kyle Massey Charged With Felony Immoral Communication With A Minor

Kyle Massey, most known for his role of Cory Baxter on That’s So Raven, has been charged with felony immoral communication with a minor. Court documents were filed this month in Kings County, Wash.

He was sued in early 2019 for “allegedly sending explicit photos, texts and videos to a 13-year-old girl.”

The actor was sued for “intentional infliction of emotional distress, harmful matter sent with intention of seducing a minor, attempting to commit a lewd act with a minor and annoying or molesting a minor.”

Variety reports:

In the lawsuit, the unnamed girl alleged she met Massey when she was four years old and kept in touch with him because she was interested in a career in entertainment. According to the lawsuit, Massey became close with the girl’s family and indicated that she should move from Seattle to Los Angeles to live with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles. The girl and her mother alleged in the lawsuit that Massey “held himself out as a father figure” to the girl, and contact increased in November 2018 after the girl indicated she was interested in a role on a rebooted version of “Cory in the House.” About a month later, Massey allegedly requested to be the girl’s friend on Snapchat, and shortly after sent her “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images and videos.” The suit says the girl is suing Massey for at least $1.5 million.

Massey has kept working after That’s So Raven. He currently stars in the ALLBLK comedy series, Millennials.
