Vincent Cirrincione, the ex-manager of Halle Berry and current manager of Taraji P. Henson, has been accused of sexual harassment, and both actresses are speaking out against him.

Last week, the Washington Post published a story that told of nine minority women who accused Cirrincione of sexual harassment. They say over the past two decades he made unwanted sexual advances toward them.

He is seen as a "gatekeeper" for black actresses trying to break into the business. He then preyed on them by seeking sexual favors in exchange for representing them. He denies this.

"Yesterday I was saddened by the allegations against my former manager, Vincent Cirrincione," shared Berry on Instagram, “but today I'm sick after reading the horrifying detailed accounts of his abuse towards nine women.

"I'm livid that he used me, and the role model he helped me become, to lure and manipulate innocent, vulnerable women of color for his predatory actions.

"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," she promised.

Henson also responded to the reports on Instagram.

"The news about my Manager Vincent Cirrincione has shocked, hurt, offended, and yet again, put professional women in a position to not trust the men they work with," she wrote.

"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 added. "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!!!"

The Washington Post stated that the agent used the celebrity status of the two actresses to lure his victims into his trap.

The Post claimed, "The manager regularly dangled Berry's and later, Henson's, stardom as bait in an effort to get them to comply with his sexual requests."
