Two teens are taking "Cheer" star Jerry Harris to court for grooming them into sending nude photos and demanding sexual favors. those are the allegations in a new lawsuit filed on their behalf.

The statement is in response to allegations that emerged in a USA Today report which said that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents executed a search warrant at Harris' home on Monday September 14, after being informed that he may have asked for sexually explicit photos as well as sex from minors.

It is reported that agents investigated Harris' house under a search warrant on Monday, September 14th, as part of the investigation. In letters to the police obtained by the publication, Varsity's chief legal officer Burton Brillhart said the company was made aware of "inappropriate sexual conduct" allegations against the star. Department of Justice policy prevents the FBI from commenting on the existence or nonexistence of any investigations that may be occurring.

Harris was made famous earlier this year, following the January release of Netflix's Cheer documentary series, which followed Texas' Navarro College cheerleaders in their bid to secure a national title.

Harris, 21, has not been criminally charged, USA Today noted. "Harris often attempted to make Plaintiffs meet Harris in secluded locations at various competitions, soliciting sexual conduct with these boys", the lawsuit added.

The lawsuit alleges that Harris "exploited his popularity and position of fame with young male cheer athletes" in the time "leading up to, during, and following the distribution of the "Cheer" docuseries". "We are confident that when the investigation is complete the true facts will be revealed".

The lawsuit says the boys' mother reported Harris to USASF, Varsity and Cheer Athletics.

A request seeking comment through his publicist has not yet been returned. Rogers told the newspaper that she learned of the allegations against him in mid-May and reported them to police. Harris instantly became a fan favourite, heralded for his enthusiastic "mat-talking" and encouragement of his teammates.

This FBI probe is reportedly based on allegations brought forward by 14-year-old twin brothers, Charlie and Sam, who described a year-long "pattern of harassment, both online and at cheer competitions" that began when they were 13 and Harris was 19.
