Cheer star Jerry Harris’s Cameo page has been paused following his arrest last week on a child pornography charge.

The 21-year-old is accused of allegedly enticing an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself, the US Attorney’s Office said in a release.

According to court records, Harris admitted to soliciting and receiving explicit images from the minor, but a spokesperson for the star has denied the allegations.

In the wake of his arrest, the Netflix star’s Cameo account appears to have been paused. Cameo is a popular video site through which fans can pay celebrities to film brief personalised videos, including birthday wishes and congratulatory messages.

While his page is still live, there is no longer an option to purchase a video from Harris. Instead, there is a message which reads: “Notify me when Jerry Harris is available.”
