'Zoey 101' Alum Alexa Nikolas Insists 'Toxic Doesn't Agree With Me' As Social Media Feud With Chris Massey Comes To A Head Over Bullying Claims On Set
Alexa Nikolas is speaking her truth and not backing down.
After the Zoey 101 alum butted heads with former costars Jamie Lynn Spears and Chris Massey over bullying claims on set, Nikolas seemed to allege she didn't regret sharing her side of the story.
The child star took to her Instagram Story Wednesday, February 2, to share a quote by Bjork that read: "Toxic doesn't agree with me. Love lured me here. Into a stagnant state. My myths, my customs, ridiculed. Vacuum packed molecules. Then my body memory kicks in. On this Brooklyn dance floor. Sweating with these rhythms. Rotate this matrix. All trapped in legal harness. Kafkaesque. Farce like patriarchy. Avoided to confront it."
"Then my body memory kicks in. My warrior awakens," the poem continued, "My turn to defend. Urban didn't tame me. Then my body memory kicks in. All bosoms and embraces."
Nikolas also shared a tweet to her Story about past trauma: "Regardless of whether or not you over-explaining yourself is a trauma response, you deserve to be heard and understood."
The drama between the Zoey 101 costars began to spiral when Spears claimed in her new memoir, Things I Should Have Said, that Nikolas spread rumors about her on set.
The actresses appeared on the Nickelodeon show together between 2005 and 2006, per E! News, when they were 12 and 13 years old. Nikolas apparently left the hit series after Season 2 due to what she allegedly experienced on set with her costars.

According to the outlet, when Jamie Lynn revived the show's theme song in October 2020, Nikolas was absent from the project. The brunette beauty revealed Spears eventually extended an olive branch and apologized to her, "So I forgave her," she explained in an Instagram post last month.
And while Nikolas thought the two were past their childhood feud, Spears' memoir proved otherwise. In light of the book, Nikolas slammed her for "lying up a storm," and called Spears out for never addressing anything she said about her in the book, "because she knows everything she is saying is a total lie and I would have called her out on that."
As Nikolas continued to declare she was on the receiving end of bullying, costar Massey chimed in, insisting: "Bullying was not a thing," on set. After Massey shut down Nikolas' claims, she was hit with a multitude of death threats, which she shared on her social media account.
"This is bullying 101. I remember it well," Nikolas wrote alongside a screenshot of malicious messages she had received. She tagged Massey in her Story, seemingly accusing him of being responsible for the hurtful messages, as she insisted in her post that only he can "stop this bullying."
Nikolas didn't stop there, as she also called Massey out for his previous claim that there was "never anything unwelcoming" among the cast members, responding: "Chris you guys didn't even invite me to the reunion…What is more unwelcoming than that…?"
A confused Massey replied to her Story via Instagram DM, asking: "what do you mean," and saying, "I'm confused why you tagged me in this post."
