No offense but it's clear that you aren't used to dealing with "talent".
People who earn a living from their "talent" hire others to maintain their finances, make deals in their best interest and inform them, daily if necessary, of their contractual obligations.
Doing so allows them to focus on their job, whether it's as a sports, music or movie star.
From what's been released publicly to date, it appears that the agent failed his client.
