Netflix Star Jerry Harris Has Been Sued By Underage Twin Boys

Following the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced they had a warrant for Netflix’s ‘Cheer’ star Jerry Harris, multiple new sources declared that underage twin brothers in Texas sued him for alleged exploitation and abuse.

Attorneys for the underage twin boys, who filed a petition with the District Court of Tarrant County in Texas on Monday, stated that 19-year-old Harris allegedly sent explicit and suggestive messages asking for inappropriate pictures. He also accused of “imminent physical bodily injury without consent.”

According to claims by the 14-year-old brothers, Harris befriended them at national cheerleading competitions and kept in touch with them by phone, and via social media. The suit stated that Harris violated his role as a cheer personality, icon, and coach and used his position of authority and power over the minors.

One of the attorneys, John Manly said in a release:

“Varsity Spirit is trying to mislead the public by implying that they were the ones who took the initiative to report Harris to law enforcement. In fact, our clients’ mother took action to report Harris to USASF, Varsity Spirit, and Cheer Athletics, including providing evidentiary proof of the manipulation, harassment, and exploitation that her sons had suffered. She also took action to report Harris to law enforcement, including reporting Harris to Fort Worth Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

When all these allegations appeared in the media, a spokesperson for Harris spoke to PEOPLE magazine and said:

“We categorically dispute the claims made against Jerry Harris, which are alleged to have occurred when he was a teenager. We are confident that when the investigation is completed the true facts will be revealed.”

Harris now is facing the loss of sponsorship and of his role in Netflix’s docuseries.
