Lil Twist Faces 25 Years in Jail for Chris Massey Attack
Justin Bieber's sidekick Lil Twist is in serious trouble. The rapper has reportedly been charged with six felonies for attacking former Nickelodeon star Chris Massey back in November.
TMZ reports that the Los Angeles County District Attorney charged Lil Twist, 21, with making criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. If convicted on all counts, TMZ claims, he faces up to 25 years in jail. Whoa.
As we previously reported, Lil Twist and some friends were hanging out with Kyle and Chris Massey in November 2014 when the brothers reportedly kicked the rapper out of Kyle's apartment. Lil Twist and his friends then allegedly forced their way back into the apartment, attacked him with brass knuckles, pulled his pants down and even stole his wallet and cell phone.
At the time, the Massey family released a statement in which they claimed that Twist and four friends broke into Kyle and Chris' apartment and "robbed and assaulted" them. The family stated that they "plan to legally pursue this to the full extent of the law."
Kyle Massey is most well known for his role as Cory Baxter on the Disney Channel's That's So Raven and its spin-off Cory in the House, while his brother Chris is known for his role as Michael Barrett on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101.
Both Lil Twist and the Massey brothers are also friends with Justin Bieber. We certainly hope that the Biebs has since cut ties with Twist after this incident — especially now that he is so focused on turning his life around.
