According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mitchell has been terminated by both his agent and manager, dropped from Showtime’s ‘The Chi’and from a forthcoming Netflix film, ‘Desperados.’
So what went down?
A source close to production of the ‘The Chi’ said:
“Tiffany Boone, who played Mitchell’s girlfriend, was among several actresses on the drama who had issues with the actor.
She made repeated complaints of sexual harassment and allegedly felt so unsafe with her co-star that at times her fiance, Dear White People actor Marque Richardson, came to set when she shot scenes with him. Boone declined to comment.
Boone is said to ultimately informed producers at Fox 21 that she could no longer work with Mitchell. Initially, he was retained while she was released at her request to pursue other projects. Other actresses on the series also were said to have had problems with Mitchell. It’s unclear what finally led the studio to act.
