Ex-Disney star loses vape company deal after felony charge
Ex-Disney star charged for allegedly sending explicit pics to 13-year-old girl
Kyle Massey sued for allegedly sending explicit messages to minor
Bieber buddy Lil Twist charged with 6 felonies
Former Disney star Kyle Massey has slammed the felony charge against him after he allegedly sent an inappropriate photo to a minor.
The “That’s So Raven” alum, via his attorney, claimed the new charge and original lawsuit are “extortive” and denied any wrongdoing.
“It is unfortunate that Kyle Massey had to learn through the media yesterday that the 2019 allegations have resurfaced in the State of Washington a year after their dismissal,” attorney Lee Hutton said in a statement to Page Six.
“Massey claims that the allegations then and now are extortive.”
Massey, 29, claimed the official charge in Washington is a “platform for revenge” after the victim’s 2019 lawsuit was “dismissed,” but TMZ previously reported that the victim and her family went to the Sheriff’s Office after deciding Massey didn’t have enough money to make a lawsuit worth it.
“Massey was never properly served or notified as represented to the court and the pleadings are procedurally and substantively deficient on its face,” Hutton said of the criminal charges. “Massey intends to aggressively defend these accusations again and will seek civil damages from those that refuse to hear the facts.
“We plan to seek an early dismissal — finally putting these extortive attempts to rest.”
The former “Cory in the House” star was charged with one count of communication with a minor — who has remained nameless because of her age — for immoral purposes. She originally sued him for $1.5 million for allegedly sending “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images and videos” via Snapchat.
Massey had been scheduled to appear for his arraignment Monday in King County Criminal Court in Washington, but he failed to show.
He since has begun to lose business deals, with vape company Dr. Dabber cutting all ties with him.
