Disney star Ricky Garcia, has filed a complaint against talent manager Joby Harte alleging Harte raped him throughout his adolescence. Harte arranged for a two-night songwriting retreat for himself and Garcia's boy band Forever in Your Mind on Catalina Island.
Parents were not allowed to attend. During this trip, Harte got Garcia drunk and proceeded to sexually assault him. Garcia claims he was raped and sexually assaulted by Harte “dozens of times,” and that Harte would show him porn and ply him with alcohol, after which Garcia says he would wake up naked the next morning beside Harte.
Garcia claims he was passed around Harte and his colleagues.
