'It was all talk of getting me gigs, but not being able to sign me up at the agency until I was already getting work, ' he said.

APA, the agency Grasham worked for, has released a statement saying: "APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter".

APA initially confirmed that Grasham was on leave pending an internal investigation into claims he has sexually assaulted or acted in an inappropriate way towards young male actors.

"Tyler Grasham, under the pretense of a business meeting regarding potential agency representation at APA Agency, fed me alcohol while I was underage and sexually assaulted me".

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.

As first reported by The Wrap, accusations against Grasham were aired by Blaise Godbe Lipman, a former actor turned director who is also known as Blaise Embry.

With a spotlight cast upon the sexual abuse that is seemingly rampant in Hollywood, various actors and actresses have been coming forward to make a stand, including Canadian actor Finn Wolfhard, who has fired his agent over abuse allegations. Lipman is now 28, but said the incident occurred when he was 17. Film and TV editor Lucas Ozarowski, 27, was one of those who told The Hollywood Reporter that Mr Grasham sexually assaulted him at his home in January previous year.

A young man named Lucas Ozarowski claims that in 2015 he attended a party for another APA agent at Grasham's home. He got me drunk, etc etc etc.

After the allegations, Grasham has set his Instagram to private and deleted his Facebook account. The "Stranger Things" star made it clear that the agent's conduct was unacceptable and helping prompt others, including APA itself, to follow suit.
