Disney star Kyle Massey, 29, is charged with felony for allegedly "sending pornographic material to a 13-year-old girl". Massey is famously known for appearing as Cory Baxter on popular shows 'That's So Raven' and its spinoff 'Cory in the House'. According to reports, the actor was charged with one count of "communication with a minor for immoral purposes".

The TV star has reportedly been accused of "electronically sending sexually explicit content to a 13-year-old girl" between December 2018 and January 2019. This news surfaces days after former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell pleaded guilty to two charges related to crimes involving a minor. Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, who reportedly had sex with a minor, was also in the headlines recently. He is not the only one. Former Congressman Anthony Weiner reportedly rejoined Confide, the same app he used in a sexting scandal with a 15-year-old. In April, YouTuber James Charles apologized after he was caught flirting with 16-year-olds.

According to TMZ, Massey's case is connected to a March 2019 civil suit where he was sued for $1.5M for allegedly sending "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos" via Snapchat. However, Massey claimed he was being extorted. The teen's legal team then filed a report with the Sheriff's office because according to them, Kyle "didn't have enough money" to make the suit "worth it".

Documents say that police began their investigation in early 2020. The girl's mother alleged that Kyle knew her since she was four years old. Court docs revealed that police received a thumb drive from the girl's mom containing the explicit material Massey allegedly sent on Snapchat when she was 13. According to the authorities, the thumb drive included a "pornographic video clip" and a video of a man who appears to be Massey exposing his penis. Massey reportedly didn't show up to his arraignment in King County Criminal Court in Washington on Monday, June 28. Massey appeared on 'That's So Raven' from 2003 to 2007 before starring in two seasons of 'Cory in the House'.

'Disney stars have issues'

As the news broke out, fans expressed concerns about how Disney child stars are turning out. One user commented, "These Disney stars have serious arrested development, none of them grow up. They're Peter Pan. And it's making so many of them predators. How about Disney provide their young stars therapy for the entirety of their contacts. Save the kids who watch these shows!" Another tweeted, "The same stuff probally happened to them being a child star with Disney, maybe thats why so many of these Disney stars have issues." One fan wrote, "Sometimes I think that these child stars brains don’t develop into adult brains bc they are still stuck in that child star mindset…but anyways Corey in the BIG HOUSE."
