Gina Rodriguez Drops APA and Primary Wave After Sexual Assault Controversies (Exclusive)
Both the agency and management company have been embroiled in Hollywood’s ongoing sexual misconduct revelations.
Gina Rodriguez has dropped both her agency and management company, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. A source tells THR that she is now taking meetings with other agencies.
Both APA and Primary Wave Entertainment have been embroiled in Hollywood’s ongoing revelations of sexual misconduct in the industry. Rodriguez’s manager, Primary Wave co-CEO David Guillod, resigned on Saturday after actress Jessica Barth, a former client, accused him last week of drugging and then sexually assaulting her in 2012.
Meanwhile, APA fired agent Tyler Grasham on Oct. 20 after multiple men came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and assault, including underage abuse. Grasham specialized in youth talent and did not represent Rodriguez. The actress had been with APA since 2012, two years before landing her Golden Globe-winning breakout role on The CW's Jane the Virgin.
Earlier Thursday, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews fired WME after one of its top agents, Adam Venit, was identified as the man who groped him at a party last year. Venit, who did not represent Crews, took a leave of absence from the agency on Friday.
