Finn Wolfhard fires agent after sexual assault claims

Twitter

Wolfhard, in the meantime, has yet to sign with a new agency but multiple agencies are pursuing the actor after his breakout performance in "Stranger Things" and, more recently, 'IT'.

The APA Agency made a statement to Deadline, noting that "APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter".

Nearly immediately following this announcement, fellow APA Agency actor Cameron Boyce, known for his work on this Disney Channel and the Grown Ups film series, has also fired Grasham due to the allegations. Grasham remains employed with the agency and now represents Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars, King Cobra) and 14-year-old actor Finn Wolfhard, most recently seen in Stranger Things and It.

On Monday, filmmaker and former child star Blaise Godbe Lipman shared a Facebook post accusing his Grasham of misconduct and assault as part of the #MeToo campaign. An admission of guilt with a smirky, "just try me"? Lipman is now 28, but said the incident occurred when he was 17.

The actor first met Tyler at APA's Beverly Hills office and later joined the executive for dinner where the agent supposedly got the aspiring star "drunk".

GM Reaches $120m Settlement With States Over Switches
Kentucky's Attorney General announced a settlement with General Motors Thursday for violating Kentucky's Consumer Protection Act. Under the settlement, GM will declare a motor vehicle safe only if it has complied with federal motor vehicle safety standards.

After Lipman's posts about Grasham, other men have come forward with similar stories.

As reported by Deadline, it has since been confirmed that Grasham was sacked by APA following their investigations.

A young man named Lucas Ozarowski claims that in 2015 he attended a party for another APA agent at Grasham's home. I was young and desperately wanted acceptance within my industry.

APA has terminated agent Tyler Grasham from the agency following numerous accusations of sexual abuse and harassment from several men who have spoken out on social media this week. His Facebook page has been deleted, although his Twitter and Instagram pages remain active (for now).

"I hope the light that's shed by the newly empowered victims who are coming forward, makes predators think twice".
