'Stranger Things' Star Fires Agent After Sexual Assault Claim

Blaise Godbe Lipman

Finn Wolfhard has proven that there is no age minimum when it comes to doing the right thing.

"APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter", an agency spokesperson said. However after Grasham, who now works at The Agency For The Performing Arts, passive aggressively "poked" Blaise out of the blue - he knew he had to speak up!

Canadian child actor Finn Wolfhard, 14, known for his role as Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series 'Stranger Things, ' parted ways with the agent and the company all together this week after the claims surfaced.

Wolfhard took a stand that not many adults seem to be taking, leaving the APA talent agency after his agent, Tyler Grasham, was accused of sexual assault by filmmaker Blaise Godpe Lipman, according to the LA Times.

The India vs Pakistan rivalry is no doubt one of world sport's most iconic showdowns, and this time was no different. But India also won a penalty corner in the 14th minute which was scuffed by drag-flicker Harmanpreet Singh.

Lipman says that Grasham allegedly assaulted him the summer he turned 18, a decade ago.

"When I was 21, Tyler Grasham repeatedly harassed me about my sexuality, and forcibly implied he could "protect me" if I joined his roster, ' he tweeted, adding that the agent told him if he didn't comply his career 'may be derailed". Lipman is now 28, but said the incident occurred when he was 17. Two men have come forward alleging that Grasham assaulted them.

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". I didn't name names, just the company he worked for. Deadline also spoke to another man who came forward with a similar allegation against Grasham. I didn't know better. "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications". His Facebook page has been deleted, although his Twitter and Instagram pages remain active (for now).

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.
