Lil Twist Charged With 6 Felonies
Lil Twist just got slapped with half a dozen felonies in connection with last year’s alleged home invasion and attack on former Disney star, Kyle Massey.
In November 2014, Christopher Moore, the rapper’s legal name and four other people apparently broke into Kyle’s apartment, beat the actor with brass knuckles and stole his phone and wallet.
TMZ is reporting that the L.A. County D.A. has officially charged Twist with making criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery and 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
There is an arrest warrant out for Moore and if convicted, the 22-year-old could face up to 25 years in prison.
“We want everyone to know that Christopher is fine and he was defending himself after Twist and four unknown suspects broke into Kyle & Christopher’s penthouse and robbed and assaulted him,” the Massey family wrote in a statement back in November. “Christopher is doing well and did get medical attention as reported, but has no physical concerns especially with the severity of the altercation. The police are still looking for the four accomplices. We plan to legally pursue this to the full extent of the law.”
“Finally, we would like to thank the police who did an amazing job responding to the incident.”
Calls to Twist’s reps were not returned.
