According to Deadline, the 14-year-old actor, who plays Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series, made a decision to leave after two men came forward alleging that APA agent Tyler Grasham had sexually assaulted them.
In a statement to E News, the agency said that "Tyler Grasham's employment with APA has been terminated, effective immediately".
That original post seems to have been removed or set to private, but Lipman later named Grasham in a follow-up Facebook post, spurred - incredibly - by Grasham himself.
Lipman claims that when he was 17 or 18, he and Grasham had a dinner meeting at which Grasham "fed" Lipman alcohol and got him drunk, despite him being underage. 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, ' he said in the post. According to Deadline, a third man who has not been identified has come forward to accuse Grasham of sexual assault.
The agency is now working to place his 50-some clients with other agents.

'I didn't know who he was.
