Terry Crews has been a rare voice among the seemingly endless allegations of sexual abuse in Hollywood of late, adding that he too has suffered the same. The actor sat down with ABC’s Good Morning America and candidly shared details about his abuser, the encounter, and his next steps.
ABC News writes:
“Back in February 2016, I was assaulted by Adam Venit, who is head of the motion picture department at William Morris Endeavor, one of the biggest agencies in the world, period,” Crews, 49, said today on “Good Morning America.” “He’s connected to probably everyone I know in the business … I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever.”
Venit has represented stars such as Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone, Diane Keaton, Liam Hemsworth and Steve Martin.
Crews was with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, at the party last year when, he claims, Venit began making moves with his tongue at him.
“I’m looking like, ‘Is this a joke?’ … It was actually so bizarre,” Crews said. “He comes over to me. I stick my hand out, and he literally takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals. I jump back like, ‘Hey, hey.'”
Crews recently filed a report with the LAPD in the matter since going public.
