Daniel Kaluuya Being Controlled by New Age Svengali?

Friends and family are concerned after a spiritual guru seemingly takes over actor David Kaluuya's life...

“People on the ‘Nope’ set were very concerned that Heir Holiness had ‘taken over’ DK’s life and all decisions had to go through her,” said an industry insider. “I’ve heard there were multiple blow-ups and the production people were afraid of her.”
A Hollywood source told The Post: “Was everyone a fan of Heir on set? No.”
Puck also reported that Kaluuya, 33, had fired his powerful talent agents at CAA, which reps such A-listers as Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Reese Witherspoon. He signed with the agency in 2018 shortly after filming “Get Out.”
A CAA spokesperson told The Post: “I can confirm that Daniel Kaluuya is not a client of the agency.”
“Heir Holiness has marginalized DK’s usual team,” said the industry insider.
The actor also reportedly terminated his publicist at Shelter PR after a four-year relationship that included his 2021 sweep of the Oscar, BAFTA, SAG and Golden Globes. Kaluuya briefly retained ID PR for a brief stint before axing that firm as well. He does, however, maintain his longtime manager at Management360 and his reps in London. Reps for Shelter and ID, as well as his management company and new publicist at Rogers & Cowan PMK, were unavailable for comment.
One source who knows Kaluuya well told The Post that the star had also sacked his stylist and multiple assistants at the behest of Heir Holiness.
“There are many actors and artists in Hollywood who work with spiritual advisors and use them for guidance and support,” a movie insider noted. “But … him leaving his agency and his publicists, that’s the unusual thing. It’s kind of weird.”
A source who knows Kaluuya, who is single, believes that the actor first met Heir Holiness on the set of the 2018 movie “Black Panther.”
“Apparently, he was introduced to Heir Holiness through a makeup artist, who is some sort of crystals guru,” said the Kaluuya source.
