This is just awful…
Vincent Cirrincione, best known as Halle Berry‘s agent and the man who helped other women like Taraji P. Henson start their careers in Hollywood, is now being accused of sexually harassing nine women.
The women — all “innocent, vulnerable women of color” who have come forward with extremely sad stories of Cirrincione’s abuse — were first documented on Friday afternoon in The Washington Post.
Three of the women have alleged that Cirrincione, now 70 years old, demanded that they have sex with him in exchange for his agreeing to represent them; another woman was allegedly specifically told by Cirrincione that he would advance her career if she provided him “monthly sexual encounters.”
On Friday night, Berry herself lashed out against the man, sending her own message on Instagram (below):
