Former Disney star Kyle Massey’s current lawsuit may serve as a reminder for parents to monitor who their children are interacting with on social media.

Fox News reports Massey, 27, is being sued after a 13-year-old says he sent her “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos.” The court documents were filed on Friday.

According to the suit, the plaintiff is suing Massey for at least $1.5 million.

She is suing 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.

The teen’s name has not been revealed due to her age. However, she and her mother claim that she reportedly met the “That’s So Raven” star when she was just 4 years old. As a result of her interest in pursuing an entertainment career, she and her family became close with the actor.

The girl and her mother said Massey “held himself out as a father figure.”

According to Fox News, Massey even extended the teen an offer to come live with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles.

Communication between Massey and the minor increased with talks of her getting a role in a “Cory in the House” reboot. Fox News reports that around a month later, Massey sent the girl a friend request on Snapchat.

E! News reports that Massey then began to send the girl inappropriate messages. These messages reportedly include videos of Massey’s girlfriend as well as “a Snapchat image of Massey holding his penis” among other alleged “lewd” texts.

Parenting reminds parents to talk with their children and set ground rules for social media. Make sure your children are comfortable communicating with you. Tell them to take precaution when talking with people online and to block users when necessary.

You may also want to consider monitoring who your children are friends with and messaging on platforms social media. Start with social media platforms like Facebook and Snapchat.

In this case, however, Massey’s mom says that her son is not the type of person parents should be concerned about. Angel Massey came to her son’s defense with an Instagram post that claimed him to be the real victim.

She wrote:

KYLE MASSEY IS THE VICTIM! Where is the justice for MEN?! Women get to say and do what they want and file lawsuits under JANE DOE! No the mother name is Kindra Andreas. My son name is Kyle Massey . Kindra is another mother just like me. Why does she not list her name in her complaint? THIS is #hetoo You can’t even look into her background without a name. What if this is a pattern from her? You would never know if her name is always JANE DOE on lawsuits? Just my opinion . My constitutional right to freedom of speech. Not accusing her of anything JUST MY THOUGHTS. SHARING MY PERSONAL EMAILS!

Massey has not yet responded or released a statement regarding the lawsuit.

What do you think?

  1. While I have no opinion on the texts between these two the mother is correct in stating that women are sheilded in this setting and just this lawsuit with it’s implications and accusations puts the man at a disadvantage. But we are so far in the women’s corner now because of abuses in the past (and some still happening) that fairness does not seem to be the goal. Gold digging has been going on just as long. Who’s to say if this isn’t just that? It would be great if we could trust the system but we really don’t think we can. It would be best if the cases were filed with no one named until a decision has been made in the courts. Then the accused’s life isn’t ruined because of an accusation and there is no pressure to settle trying to do damage control. The case could be heard without outside pressure from media. Both involved could be treated as innocent until proven guilty.
