In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, former Moesha star Shar Jackson fights back against the child abuse allegations claiming she hits her granddaughter. “These statements are lies and they are disgusting,” she says. “My family is my world. I would never hurt a single one of them. My granddaughter Mariah is my world and I am hers.”
Zoey 101 actor Chris Massey went to LA Superior Court on July 21 seeking a restraining order against Shar, 40, who is a grandmother to Chris’ two-year-old daughter, Mariah. (Shar’s daughter, Cassie, is Mariah’s mom.)

In the filing, Chris, 27, alleges that in May, while in Shar’s care, Mariah sustained a “4-inch razor blade cut” across her forehead and Chris claims Shar “hits my daughter.” Shar says she’s looking forward to her day in court with Chris.
“This whole thing has been hard for my entire family,” she adds. “To have someone make false accusations against me has been painful. The truth will come out.”
Shar also shares two kids, daughter Kori, 15, and son Kaleb, 13, with ex-boyfriend Kevin Federline.
