Cheer's Jerry Harris Under Investigation Following 'Inappropriate Sexual Conduct' Allegations.

Jerry Harris is under FBI Investigation after being accused of “inappropriate sexual conduct”.

The report, via USA Today, says that the 21-year-old cheerleader, and one of the stars of Netflix’s Cheer, had “solicited sexually explicit photos and sex from minor.”

A search warrant was issued for Jerry‘s home in Illinois this afternoon (September 14). He has not been criminally charged with anything.

The allegations were reported to the police by Varsity, a giant in the cheerleading industry, who are required to report any and all accusations by law.

“As a result of the recent allegation, we have barred this person from having any affiliation with Varsity Brands or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, now and in the future,” Varsity’s chief legal officer, Burton Brillhart shared about the allegations and consequences.

Mr. Billhart‘s letters to police, dated August 1, include screenshots from a conversation that appear to have Jerry‘s face in them.

Jerry, who was once rumored to be part of the new Dancing With The Stars season, worked for Varsity at a cheer camp last year. He became one of Cheer‘s hottest stars with his iconic mat talks.

He seemed so innocent.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

When the boys were around 13 or 14 years old, Harris “would repeatedly hug” them at cheer competitions. Harris’s misconduct progressed further, as he “exploited the fact that Plaintiffs were openly gay,” the suit further claimed. When they were around 13 or 14, Harris messaged them demanding that they “‘send nudes,’ expressly demand that these young boys send Harris child pornography, including pictures of their naked bodies, penises and buttocks.”

He's being sued now:

More details about Jerry Harris‘s legal battles are being revealed, with news of the Cheer star being sued by two twin brothers.

Deadline reports that the 21-year-old’s accusers have filed court documents against the Netflix breakout, claiming that he sent them sexually explicit messages when they were just 13 years old.

The lawsuit states that the twin brothers befriended Jerry in 2018, during a cheer competition and says that the boys were “star struck” with him and their relations expanded beyond just text messages to meeting in “secluded locations at various competitions.”

After their mother found out, she reported Jerry to Varsity, a giant in the sport of cheerleading, who in turn reported the incidents to police.

Reps for Jerry are denying the claims.

“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,” they said in a statement.

Stay tuned for more on the story…

They really need to have a required class on proper social media use and laws surrounding it. I don't think a lot of these kids realize that nudes from anyone under 18 are considered "child porn" in the US, even if they themselves are the same age, even if the photos are of themselves that they are giving out.

Also, it sounds like the twins got caught with him and used him as a scapegoat with their mother.

R5 He was 19 when that happened - not a kid anymore.

As sad as it is, I'm not really surprised these skeletons were in his closet. It's almost a guarantee with the overly cheerful, positive, "never gonna let negativity get to me!" types that something like this comes out.

"Harris allegedly admitted to investigators to soliciting sex acts from both minors, asking for and receiving child pornography from 10 to 15 other minors, and having sex with another 15-year-old at a cheer event in 2019, according to the complaint."

What would Monica say?

No more pyramid for him.

Wow and there are screenshots from the texts too. He's gone.

Is he portrayed gay or straight on the show?

Wow, Netflix just can't catch a break.

by Anonymousreply 1309/17/2020

I don't remember him from the show. Was he Sam and Diane's adopted son?

by Anonymousreply 1409/17/2020

How awful.

Netflix, the pedo platform.

He probably told those kids he was a cheerleader, but left the "male" part out.

by Anonymousreply 1709/18/2020

r17 I don't get it. You think he was passing as woman? You think he could with his looks?

by Anonymousreply 1809/18/2020

How embarassing, he's from my hometown 🤮

by Anonymousreply 1909/18/2020

I recently binged the "Cheers" series and was rooting for him from the first episode. I am so saddened by this news. Ugh.

by Anonymousreply 2009/18/2020

r6 to be fair, that's only a 4 year age difference for him, and 15 year olds can look like they're 20 now, especially if they work out and have muscle like a cheer person would. It's unreal some of the bodybuilder guys you see on Insta who are young but look old enough to vote (and no, I'm not seeking them, just pointing this out).

by Anonymousreply 2109/18/2020

r21 He was preying on boys aged 12-14, too. And in any case, he most likely knew their ages.

by Anonymousreply 2209/18/2020

r22 well, that's more disturbing, but how would he know their ages?

by Anonymousreply 2309/18/2020

R23, they had extensive text conversations with each other AND they had met personally at a cheer competition.

by Anonymousreply 2409/18/2020

r24 ok, you're reaching there.

by Anonymousreply 2509/18/2020

R25, how am I reaching? There are screenshots of the text conversations.

by Anonymousreply 2609/18/2020

sketchy brother! he'll get some cheers in the clink!

Wow R8 Jerry bin bizzy!

I think he was in foster care, and let's face it, was obviously gay from the time he could say his ABCs. I am not surprised AT ALL, by this revelation, that he was being sexual with younger boys.

I guarantee he was serialized and molested. It's not an excuse, but that shit fucks up little boys and serious "arrested development" is obvious in men who were sexually traumatized. He is very child like and I remember thinking this when I watched his show. I expected him to reveal he was molested.

His desire to be sexual with young teens is way of having sex while staying in control of the sexual dynamic. Men who were molested often crave control in sexual situations. Having sex with experienced men could be scary to him, so inexperienced "virgins" make him feel confident.

The bigger problem is now we have a whole bunch of traumatized teens, who are now going to mature into men, with their own set of issues to deal with! Trauma begets trauma!

SMH.

^^ Not "serialized and molested" I meant "sexualized and molested"

If he was in California, he'd be subject to the new amended sex crime law signed by newsom and would be fine.

by Anonymousreply 3109/18/2020

19 yos can have sex with 13 yos in California?

by Anonymousreply 3209/18/2020

I think R30 is correct - he is carrying on a behavior that was practiced on him in the Cheer Community.

by Anonymousreply 3309/18/2020

Did he commit suicide yet?
