A publicist for Bill Cosby says Cosby is no longer represented by the Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

Deadline Hollywood reports Cosby was dropped “late last year” as multiple sexual abuse allegations began to mount against the legendary comedian.

The talent shop — which is the home of some of the world’s biggest actors, musicians and sports figures — represented Cosby since 2012. His release means he no longer has professional representation in Hollywood.

It’s the latest setback the embattled comedian has faced this week. On Monday, details from a 2005 deposition were released, in which Cosby apparently admitted under oath the he used sedatives on young women he wanted to have sex with.

Since last year, dozens of women have come forward to accuse Cosby of some form of sexual abuse. He has publicly denied the accusations.
