On February 21st 2022, | resigned as Angus Cloud's talent manager. My decision to resign was prompted by Angus' verbal abuse, emotional distress & severe drug addiction, which rendered it impossible for me to continue my professional relationship with him. (THREAD) pic.twitter.com/flxRSRDMt2

According to Cordero, he juggled his aspiration of becoming an independent talent manager while working the night shift as a “mental health technician.” Within a short span of two weeks, he encountered Cloud, who was a patient at the facility. Cordero asserts that they quickly formed a deep connection, eventually leading to their professional collaboration in April 2021.
Cordero claimed that Cloud’s personal affairs were in disarray, prompting him to hire a new publicist and “acting & fashion agents.” Through their efforts, Cloud was able to secure health insurance and rectify discrepancies in his SAG-AFTRA account.

Did Angus Cloud’s Friends Encourage Drug Abuse
According to Cordero, Angus Cloud made notable progress in the next few months despite being in the company of friends who purportedly engaged in drug use and posed a threat to his sobriety.
“Their reckless behavior and lack of regard for Angus’ recovery served as a significant obstacle to his progress,” Cordero said, “ultimately contributing to his relapse.”
Nonetheless, Cordero asserts that a mere 48 hours after Cloud’s release from rehab, he was invited to attend a 4th of July barbecue at the actor’s residence. He claimed,
“Upon entering his premises and attempting to greet him with a hug, it became immediately apparent that he had resumed substance abuse, a mere two days after completing his treatment.”

Did Angus Cloud Use Drugs In The Rehab
Cordero alleged that he arranged for Cloud to enter another rehabilitation facility while he shot the last two weeks of the second season of the HBO series. As per the talent manager, the actor continued indulging in drug use while in rehab and subsequently left the facility against medical advice to commence filming for the movie Your Lucky Day.
The actor secured a part in another production. On the evening before he was scheduled to depart for Oklahoma, Cordero revealed that he was contacted by one of Cloud’s housemates, who informed him that the actor was experiencing breathing difficulties. Cordero alleges that he swiftly arrived on the scene, administered Narcan, and carried out CPR on Cloud. Cordero then tweeted,
“Regrettably, as he regained consciousness, Angus vomited onto my face.”
After all this, it does not come as a shock that Diomi Cordero resigned as Cloud’s manager.
