Former Disney star Kyle Massey was spotted leaving a Los Angeles gym Monday afternoon, just a week after Washington state police issued a warrant for his arrest.

Kyle was charged last month with “one count of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes” and now has a $100,000 warrant for his arrest for skipping an arraignment in King County.

Last month, Massey missed another arraignment, which was moved to last week, which he again skipped.
“The defendant has not appeared and a warrant has been issued. No further hearing dates have been set at this time,” a spokesperson said NBC News last week.
Massey’s attorney, Lee Hutton, responded that Massey has not been sworn in and that they are “concerned about misrepresentation in court.”
“Indeed, we will continue to defend these allegations, as well as determine why a fair trial has not been followed,” Hutton said before admitting that a callback request has not been received by the King County District Attorney’s office. .
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Massey has been accused of electronically sending sexually explicit content to the girl, around December 2018 and January 2019.

DailyMail.com has reached out to legal representatives for Massey to comment.
In March, Massey was sued for $1.5 million for allegedly sending “numerous sexually explicit text messages, images and videos” via Snapchat, but the actor claimed he was being extorted.
The report adds that this most recent indictment is related to the previous civil suit.
In March, Massey vehemently denied the first round of charges, calling the $1.5 million lawsuit filed against him Friday a case of racketeering.
Massey said in a statement through his attorney Lee Hutton at the time: “No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit material and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged wrongdoing.”

According to legal documents obtained by: TMZ, the unidentified girl and her family met Massey when she was four years old and stayed in touch with the actor over the years as she started her own entertainment career.
She contacted him in late 2018 hoping to audition for a part in the recently rebooted Raven’s Home.
The lawsuit also alleges that Massey then suggested she fly out and stay with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles while she was looking for a talent agent.
Just days later, the child claimed that Massey had sent her a number of sexually explicit text messages, images and videos.
Massey supported his extortion claims, insisting the prosecution’s legal team demanded $1.5 million earlier this year and threatened to go public to destroy his career if he didn’t follow the rules.
The actor said he shot the demand.
He has asked fans, and the public at large, “not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone, but to hold back until the full story comes to light, making these allegations groundless.”
Massey played Cory Baxter on the Disney Channel sitcom, That’s So Raven, from 2003 to 2007, and its spin-off show, Cory In The House, as the title character from 2007 to 2008.
His resume also includes Dancing With The Stars season 11 in 2010, and guest-starring in The Practice, Gotham, Being Marie Jane and the voice of Jeremy in Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
