That's So Raven actor Kyle Massey has responded to a lawsuit alleging that he sent text messages containing explicit photos and videos to a 13-year-old girl. Massey's attorney Lee Hutton tells TMZ, "No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct."
Hutton alleges that the accuser is trying to shake the 27-year-old actor for money, claiming her legal team previously demanded $1.5 million in exchange for them not going public with information that could potentially hurt his career, but Massey didn't budge.
The suit claims Massey first met the girl in 2009 at Universal City when she was just four years old. The girl wanted the Disney star to help her establish a career in the entertainment industry, and Massey spoke to her mother this past December about flying the child out to Los Angeles where he would help her to secure an agent. Massey offered to have the girl live with him and his girlfriend during her visit.
According to the suit, Massey sent "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos," including an image of his erect penis. He also allegedly sent "a Snapchat image of [himself] holding his penis with a corresponding text message that reads 'LOL/Just me messing with u LOL.'"
The girl alleges she has "suffered great pain of mind, body, shock, emotional distress, physical manifestations of emotional distress, embarrassment, loss of self-esteem, disgrace, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life."
She is seeking $1.5 million.
