Christopher Lynn Moore, better known by his stage name Lil Twist, is headed to the clinker.
As previously reported, the 23-year-old rapper was arrested after he allegedly attacked and robbed former Nickelodeon star Chris Massey back in November 2014. According to reports, Moore pummeled the “Zoey 101” star with brass knuckles after an argument at the apartment of Chris’ brother Kyle Massey. Prior to the assault, reports claim that Moore slapped Massey before he was removed from the residence. Shortly after, Moore returned with four men, where he proceeded to brutally beat down the 26-year-old actor and lifted his wallet and cell phone. Massey was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Now, it appears Massey will get a little justice. Though Justin Bieber’s former sidekick pleaded no contest to half a dozen felony charges including conspiracy, burglary, grand theft, battery and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, on Wednesday, Nov. 30, the Texas native was sentenced to one year in a L.A. County jail. Considering the Young Money artist was facing up to 10 years behind bars, he got off easy with a humble plea deal. “It’s over but not really, GOD got me!!” Moore tweeted shortly after news of his sentencing broke.
Of course, this isn’t Twist’s first brush with the law. In March 2013, he wrecked Bieber’s Fisker Karma in a hit-and-run accident. He was also caught red handed hosting a booze party at the singer’s former Calabasas home in his absence that same month.
Meanwhile, Massey’s team doesn’t seem too thrilled about the ruling. “We intend to hold him fully responsible in the civil trial. We expect the court to deliver justice. He must take full responsibility for the assault, burglary, and battery that took place,” Courtney M. Coates, Massey’s attorney exclusively tells rolling out.
