Disney’s influence in the world is immense, from the tales we loved as children to the scandals we read as adults. In many cases of young Disney stars, their truth soon became more interesting than fiction, especially as they grew up in a life of fame, and occasionally misfortune.
Such is the case with 'That's So Raven' and 'Corey in the House' actor Kyle Massey, whom audiences watched grow up on screen, but who has found himself in hot water recently. The former Disney Channel star has been charged with felony by Washington state prosecutors for allegedly communicating with a then-13-year-old girl "for immoral purposes of a sexual nature," between December 1, 2018, and January 31, 2019, E! News reports.
According to a June 14 court motion, Massey was summoned and is prohibited from having contact with minors "except in the presence of a responsible adult," and he must also have a computer monitoring system tracking his use of the internet at all times. The teen's mother alleges that Massey has known her daughter since she was four, and the mother previously tried to sue Massey in 2019, but eventually realized he "didn't have enough money to make the case worth it." She then moved forward with criminal allegations. The actor previously denied the misconduct through his attorney and alleged that the claims were part of an "extortion attempt."
