“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez has left both her agency and management company following the recent sexual misconduct scandals, TheWrap has confirmed.
An insider with knowledge of the situation tells TheWrap that Rodriguez has been taking meetings with other agencies.
Rodriguez’s former manager David Guillod resigned from his company, Primary Wave Entertainment, two days after “Ted” actress Jessica Barth told TheWrap that he drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2012.[powergridprofile powerrank=”4509” node=”276545” type=”person” path=”http://powergrid.thewrap.com/person/gina-rodriguez” title=”Gina Rodriguez” image=”gina_rodriguez”]
As first reported by TheWrap, Barth approached the LADP last Thursday to revive accusations that Guillod, her then-manager, drugged and sexually assaulted her after inviting her to dinner in May 2012. She went to police at the time, but said she did not go forward with the case because Guillod threatened to sue her.
Talent agent Tyler Grasham has been fired from the Agency for the Performing Arts, one day after TheWrap reported on an actor’s accusation that Grasham sexually assaulted him when he was in his late teens. Grasham did not represent Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has been a client of APA since 2012, two years before booking her Golden Globe-winning breakout role in “Jane the Virgin.”
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news about Rodriguez’s departure.
