A BMX rider who has appeared in Nutri-Grain campaigns and as a stuntman in Fast and Furious is accused of requesting sex acts and photos from an underage girl in exchange for alcohol.
A suppression order was lifted on the identity of Rhys Kember on Monday after an application by media. Mr Kember was arrested on May 8 after police seized a number of electronic devices at his Theodore address.
Police documents previously tendered to the court said officers intended to categorise images and videos found on the devices as per the child exploitation material categorisation scheme.
Mr Kember has pleaded not guilty to using a carriage service to procure a person under 16, and using a carriage service to groom a person under 16.
The police documents said Mr Kember - whose StarNow profile lists him as an actor, model, and influencer among other things - made contact with an underage girl via Instagram in December 2019. The 32-year-old allegedly went on to request photos of the girl's "boobs at least" in exchange for alcohol, and suggested she give him "head".
The documents allege the girl said, "I don't have much in my [camera roll]". Mr Kember allegedly responded with "boobs not bra", and later said: "Or you can actually give head this time."
The documents said police later posed as a 14-year-old girl who was seeking alcohol for a school camp and initiated contact with Mr Kember on Instagram. Mr Kember allegedly asked the persona to send him a picture of her breasts from a school bathroom.
The documents said the persona told Mr Kember: "Fine I'll play the game. Tell me exactly what you want."
Mr Kember allegedly responded, "Show me your boobs then", to which the persona said, "How am I gonna do that at school?"
Mr Kember allegedly said: "You were just in the toilet so do it there."
According to Mr Kember's StarNow profile, he was a motorbike rider and extra in Fast and Furious and has also appeared in several music videos and television programs.
A Kellogg's spokesman in a statement issued on Monday evening said the company had removed all Nutri-Grain media activity featuring Mr Kember.
"We are deeply concerned about the disturbing charges made against Rhys Kember," the spokesman said.
Mr Kember is next due to appear in court on August 6.
