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

The 29-year-old actor — who found fame on That’s so Raven and Cory in the House — sported a colorful tie-dye tank top and shorts for a fitness session with a friend. 

Kyle was charged with ‘one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes’ last month and now has a $100,000 order for his arrest for skipping out on an arraignment in King County.

Last month Massey missed another arraignment, which was rescheduled for last week, which he once again skipped.

‘The defendant failed to appear and a warrant was issued. No further court dates have been set at this time,’ a spokesperson told NBC News last week. 

Massey’s attorney, Lee Hutton, responded that Massey wasn’t served and that they are ‘concerned with the misrepresentations made in court.’

‘Indeed, we will move forward to defend these allegations but also determine why due process has not been followed,’ Hutton said before admitting a return call has not been received by the King County district attorney’s office. 

Per legal documents obtained by TMZ, Massey has been accused of sending sexually explicit content to the girl electronically, 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 charge is connected to the previous civil suit. 

Back in March, Massey vehemently denied the first round of allegations, calling the $1.5 million lawsuit levied against him on Friday, a case of extortion. 

Massey said in a statement through his attorney, Lee Hutton, at the time: ‘No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct.’

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 began her own entertainment career. 

She reached out to him in late 2018 with hopes of auditioning for a role on the recently-rebooted Raven’s Home. 

The lawsuit also contends Massey then suggested that she fly out and stay with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles while she looked to get a talent agent. 

Just days later, the child contended Massey sent her a number of sexually explicit text messages, images and videos.

Supporting his claims of extortion, Massey maintained the accuser’s legal team demanded $1.5 million earlier this year and threatened to go public to destroy his career if he didn’t comply.

The actor said he shot down the demand.

He has asked fans, and the public in general, ‘not to jump not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone but reserve judgment until the whole story comes to light, proving these allegations baseless.’

Massey played Cory Baxter on the Disney Channel sitcom, That’s So Raven, from 2003 until 2007, and the spinoff show, Cory In The House, as the title character from 2007 until 2008.

His resume also includes Dancing With The Stars season 11 in 2010, and guest starring roles on The Practice, Gotham, Being Marie Jane and the voice of Jeremy on Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
