A man who has reportedly been arrested for allegedly sending sexually-explicit material to 12-year-old Dance Moms star Jojo Siwa now says he has contacted multiple girls from the show. 

Phoenix Sundown, who, according to TMZ, was arrested Tuesday for sending explicit material to a minor, was interviewed from his jail cell by San Diego's 10 News

Sundown told 10 News that he also sent 11 packages to Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, who is 12 years old and most famous for appearing in Sia's music videos. He also said that he doesn't see anything wrong with behavior because he is communicating with the girls through cryptic messages on social media and said they use codes to confuse advertisers. 

"Seems like, oh this dude is 'way obsessed,' but no one is recognizing that there's communication going on," he said.

Additionally, Sundown showed 10 News his tattoos and revealed that the image on his neck is a zombie version of Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller.


Sundown, who, per 10 News, has been in prison before on manslaughter charges, and is currently waiting for his day in court. 

"They know I'm not going to come swinging through a rope and smashing through a window and screaming with print outs that we married," said Sundown. "I'm not that crazy."
