Massey, 27, probably best known for his role on the hit show "That's So Raven" when he was younger, has known the now-13-year-old since she was 4, according to news reports, when Massey met the girl and her mother at Universal City.

The lawsuit contends the girl, known as Jane Doe in legal documents because of her age, kept in touch with Massey over the years and recently asked for his help in auditioning for a reboot of Massey's spinoff show "Corey in the House," People.com reported.

The suit contends Massey offered to move the girl, who lives in Seattle, to Los Angeles to live with him and his girlfriend, despite her age, and friended her on Snapchat in December.

The girl claims in the lawsuit that Massey sent her sexually explicit text messages, images and videos, and she is suing for $1.5 million, according to People.

Massey, who voices the character Milo on "Fish Hooks," also starred in the movie "Life is Ruff" and competed on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2010.
