Vincent Cirrincione, Hollywood manager of some of its biggest stars like Taraji P. Henson, Halle Berry and Jussie Smollett, is being accused of sexual harassment by nine women.
According to CBS News, actress and filmmaker Tamika Lamison was one of Cirrincione’s victims. “In the middle of the poem, he grabbed me and kissed me, he stuck his tongue in my mouth, and I was shocked, I pushed him away.”
Upon learning about the allegations, Henson took to social media to speak out about the man that helped launch her career.
Halle also slammed the 70-year-old for the accusations.
In a statement on Twitter, Jussie revealed that he’d be severing ties with his manager amidst the accusations.
I am both angry and completely heartbroken at yesterday’s article about Vincent Cirrincione. I have since severed all ties with Cirrincione & associates. #TimesUp 🙏🏿
