Taraji P. Henson Cuts Ties With Manager Vincent Cirrincione Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Taraji P. Henson has severed ties with her manager, Vincent Cirrincione, following recent claims of sexual misconduct against him, Variety has learned.

“I feel saddened, disappointed and ashamed,” Henson wrote in an Instagram post in response to the allegations. “The news about my Manager Vincent Cirrincione has shocked, hurt, and offended and yet again put professional women in a  position to not trust the men they work with. Everyone knows how difficult this Industry has been for women and my hope is that all of these unspeakable events ignite true change in the treatment of women in this entertainment business.”

“True art can only be created in an environment of vulnerability and TRUST,” she continued. “If you continue to decimate the trust, you lose the beauty of the Art. I feel saddened, disappointed and ashamed. We deserve better. THIS HAS TO STOP!!!”

Henson’s decision to fire Cirrincione comes after an article in The Washington Post detailed allegations of sexual harassment against the manager from nine women. Henson had previously told the Post, “I’ve never had any issue with [Cirrincione] on any level. He totally respected me.”

The nine women who claim Cirrincione sexually harassed them say he promised to launch their careers in exchange for sexual favors. Multiple women also stated he would reference his role in building Henson and Halle Berry’s careers to convince them to perform the sexual acts. In a statement, Cirrincione, who has since shut down his management agency, denied the allegations.

Berry has also responded to the claims, writing in her own Instagram post, “I’m deeply hurt and I want these women and countless others to know I see you. I hear you. You matter. I will fight for you.”
