Stranger Things star fires agent over sexual abuse claims

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has chose to leave his agency and agent Tyler Grasham after two men came forward alleging that Grasham had sexually assaulted them. We hear the agency took the agent off his desk Wednesday after accuser Blaise Godbe Lipman, now 28, went public on Facebook saying that the rep sexually assaulted him 10 years ago when he was seeking representation as a child actor.

'APA Agency has kept this man employed, working with kid actors. "I find it incredibly hard to believe they do not know of his predatory behavior, using his position within the company to prey on naive kids", said. Two men have come forward accusing Grasham of sexual assault, which you'll know is something taken very seriously these days if you've been watching the news.

He posted to his Facebook that he had experienced sexual abuse at the hands of a Hollywood agent. In the course of a year, Grasham reportedly expressed a strong desire to be Lindsey's boyfriend, start a family with him, and help him begin a career in Hollywood.

Grasham allegedly organised a smear campaign in order to "out" the actor (Lipman, who is gay, wasn't out at the time of the incident) "I didn't do anything at the time". However, Grasham again made advances and Lindsey said he ended up walking out at around 4 am.

According to Deadline, APA agent Tyler Grasham is finding himself in some serious hot water.

Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler in the show, has parted ways with agent Tyler Grasham due to claims of sexual abuse.
