YouTube star and skateboarder Steven Fernandez was arrested on Wednesday after using his "celebrity status" to sexually exploit a 12-year-old girl.
TMZ reports that the 15-year-old social media influencer promised to introduce the victim to big name celebs and give her an appearance on his MTV show — that he doesn't even have — in exchange for sexual acts. Police were alerted after the act was committed, and Fernandez was arrested.
Fernandez' manager Jose Barajas and 27-year-old Keelan Dadd were also arrested for being in on the plot after LAPD detectives pretended to be the 12-year-old girl and arranged to meet up for sex a few days later. Dadd reportedly turned himself in.
Police are looking for other possible victims.
Fernandez joined YouTube in January 2012 and has over 703,000 subscribers. He goes by the name $cumbeezy and refers to his one million Instagram followers as "scummy."
This is so disgusting!! Our hearts break for the young girl who was preyed upon.
