In June 2021, Bell entered a guilty plea during a case involving attempted child endangerment.

The charges related to an online incident involving a 15-year-old fan in 2017.

Bell, who was 31 at the time of the incident, said he did not know the girl’s age at the time and that “all conversation and communication stopped” when he became aware.

He admitted child endangerment and disseminating material harmful to juveniles.

Bell was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service.
