Justin Bieber’s former rapper buddy Lil Twist was sentenced to one year in prison for assaulting and robbing Zoey 101 alumni Christopher Massey. What made the rapper do something so reckless?
On Wednesday, the New Money rapper was sentenced to prison after he pleaded no contest to assaulting and robbing former Nickelodeon star Christopher Massey. The rapper was also sentenced to three years of probation following his jail time.
According to Perez Hilton, Lil Twist (real name Christopher Lynn Moore) went to a bash at That’s So Raven star Kyle Massey’s house in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of El Lay in 2014.
Kylie Massey starred on his own That’s So Raven spinoff, Corey in the House. The former Disney star also competed on Dancing with the Stars.
The rapper was allegedly asked to leave the party. This did not go well with Twist, who later returned with four friends and broke into the Disney star’s home.
Twist jumped Kyle’s brother Christopher, beat him with brass knuckles, and stole several of his belongings, including his Rolex wristwatch.
The attack on Chris Massey was described as “brutal.” Before leaving the Disney star’s house, Twist and his buddies pulled Chris’ pants down and snatched his wallet and cell phone.
Justin Bieber’s ex-pal was charged with six felonies, including first-degree residential burglary, assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, grand theft, and first-degree robbery.
Lil Twist is required to surrender himself by February 3, and it is entirely possible that the rapper may be out of jail by August if he maintains good behavior.
The rapper apparently had to turn himself in back in September for failing to appear at his court appearance, according to TMZ reports.
Did the judge go too easy on Bieber’s pal? The charges against him were pretty serious, but it seems he only got a slap on the wrist.
How does Nickelodeon star Chris Massey feel about the rapper’s short sentencing? Twist could have been sentenced to 10 years behind bars.
The former Nickelodeon actor required medical treatment for his injuries following that attack on him, according to Daily Mail.

Justin Bieber has not been seen with his buddy Lil Twist in quite some time. The pair even lived together for some time. Now, Bieber’s management reportedly decided that Lil Twist was too much of a bad influence to hang out with the Canadian pop star.
Back in 2013, the rapper caused up to $10,000 worth of damage to one of Bieber’s cars when he sped out of a parking lot at a Four Seasons.
Shortly thereafter, he was pulled over for speeding, and a paparazzi photographer was killed by oncoming traffic while trying to snap a shot of the incident.
That wasn’t the only time the rapper damaged Bieber’s possessions. In March of 2013, Twist crashed another one of Bieber’s cars into a pole outside of a liquor store in San Fernando Valley.
To make matters worse, just a few months later the rapper was arrested for a DUI in Calabasas. Twist was driving another one of Bieber’s cars, a Fisker Karma, between 60mph and 70mph in a 30mph zone.
Maybe this time in prison will give Lil Twist a chance to reevaluate some of the bad choices he’s made over the past few years.
