APA Concludes Investigation of Tyler Grasham, ‘Corrective Action’ Taken (Exclusive)

Agency will not disclose results of a probe launched in October

Talent Agency APA has concluded its internal investigation into the accused misconduct of fired agent Tyler Grasham, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

The agency took “corrective action” following the probe, which was conducted by California state labor attorney Matthias Wagener, an agency spokesman said.

“APA has completed its investigation and taken corrective action. We are committed to ensuring that both employees and clients are always treated professionally and with respect. Beyond that, we are unable to comment on the matter because of the privacy of those involved,” the company said in a statement to TheWrap.

Relatedly, the Los Angeles District Attorney announced Thursday that it will not file charges against Grasham. Of the four accusations against him, two were found to be outside the statute of limitations, one was dismissed for lack of sufficient evidence, and one was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office, for possible filing as a misdemeanor.

The agency declined to elaborate on what actions were taken after the investigation, which started in October. TheWrap reached out to three of Grasham’s accusers to ask if they were involved in the resolution. The fourth has not been publicly identified.

Blaise Godbe Lipman, a filmmaker who said Grasham promised him entertainment industry connections prior to his accused assault, told TheWrap he would not comment further on the incident or any measures taken by APA in their investigation.

Lucas Ozarowski, a production assistant who said Grasham touched him inappropriately, did not return multiple calls or emails from TheWrap. His case was the one referred to the city attorney.

The third accuser, Brady Lindsey, did not respond to a request for comment.

Grasham was a top agent to young actors, most notably “Stranger Things” and “It” star Finn Wolfhard, who left the agency shortly after accusations against Grasham were reported.

Last November, TheWrap reported on the conduct and culture created by Grasham inside the Beverly Hills offices of APA. Multiple individuals said Grasham’s conduct with young actors was found to be inappropriate, and included serving alcohol to minors in his office. At least one individual reported complaining about Grasham’s behavior to a human resources representative.

An attorney for the agency called the account “absolutely false” at the time.
