We hate to shatter your Tuesday but you're going to need to take a seat for this. 

Netflix's Cheer's Jerry Davis is currently being investigated by the FBI.

According to USA Today, the breakout star from the cheerleading show is currently the subject of investigation due to allegations he solicited sexually explicit photos and sex from minors.

A rep for Harris has 'categorically' denied the claims, telling Variety:

"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."

The news comes after FBI Agents executed a search warrent this week at a home in Illinous.

The allegations were made by Varsity, a private cheerleading-industry company which Jerry had worked with.

Burton Brillhart, chief legal officer for Varsity, wrote "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".
