Lil Twist Pleads Not Guilty in Kyle Massey Brawl

Young Money rapper arraigned for attacking actor’s brother.

Lil Twist pleaded not guilty to assault and theft charges in court Friday morning, stemming from an alleged brawl at the home of ex-Disney star Kyle Massey, the Los Angeles Times reports.  


Twist is up against six charges including first-degree assault, criminal threats, grand theft and misdemeanor battery. 

The Young Money rapper is accused of forcing his way back into a party at Massey’s residence last November after he was told to leave for attacking the actor’s brother. Prosecutors say he punched the victim at least twice before leaving and returned 30 minutes later with four others. A fight ensued, and the victims’ belongings were stolen, according to the D.A.

If convicted, the 22-year-old, whose birth name is Christopher Lynn Moore, faces close to 10 years in prison.
