Kyle Massey did not appear in court for his arraignment on a felony charge of communication with a minor for immoral purposes because he was at a clothing launch.

Seemingly unbothered by his legal woes, the 29-year-old former Disney star – known for playing Raven-Symoné's cheeky younger brother, Cory Baxter, in That's So Raven and spin-off series Cory in the House – was at a party on Monday afternoon to kick off DaBaby's collaboration with clothing line boohooMAN.

The rapper did not appear to be at the fairly empty event that seems to have taken place in Los Angeles, but that did not stop Massey from having a grand ol' time.

Filming every square inch of the indoor-outdoor venue, the embattled actor panned over to show racks of clothing, several bar stations, lots of empty tables and chairs, and a taco stand.

"You guys doing shots?" one of the bartenders asked, to which Massey replied, "Yup, chilled shots."

He also took a solo picture in front of the step and repeat, before hanging with brand founder Samir Kamani and Samir's brother, Umar Kamani, who owns PrettyLittleThing.

As Radar previously reported, Massey was scheduled to appear in King County Criminal Court in Seattle, Washington, for allegedly sending pornographic material to a 13-year-old girl. But he failed to show, and now we know why.

Reps for the actor never responded to our request for comment.

Massey is accused of electronically sending sexually explicit material from December 2018 to January 2019 to a girl he has allegedly known for almost a decade.

The charge is connected to a $1.5 million civil lawsuit the girl in question and her mother – neither of whom have been named – initially filed against Massey in March of 2019 for sending explicit matter to a minor, attempting to commit a lewd act with a minor, annoying or molesting a minor and emotional distress.

They accused the actor of sending the girl "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos" via Snapchat.

At the time, Massey maintained he was being extorted.

According to the newly filed court documents, the girl's attorneys advised her and her mother that they did not believe Massey had enough money to make their civil suit worthwhile. The mother-daughter duo then went to authorities to file their claims with the Sheriff's Office.

Law enforcement officials say they began investigating the case early last year. The new court papers state that the girl's mother gave investigators a jump drive containing the sexually explicit content Massey allegedly sent the girl, including a pornographic video and a video of a man who appeared to be Massey exposing his penis.

In her initial lawsuit, the mother explained that she and her daughter had met Massey at Universal City when her daughter was 4 years old. The mother said that because her daughter was interested in pursuing a career in entertainment, Massey kept in contact over the years and offered to help. The mother-daughter duo said the actor "held himself out as a father figure" for the girl.
