UPDATE 7:00 P.M. EST: TMZ sources believe the man named in the filing is Adam Venit, head of the motion picture group at William Morris Endeavor. The outlet reached out to Venit’s rep, and they have no comment.
Terry Crews is finally taking his case to the authorities.
TMZ reports that the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor walked into an LAPD station on Wednesday and filed a report alleging sexual assault.
Crews went to police almost a month after making the shocking revelation on Twitter that a high-level executive “came over 2 me and groped my privates” at a Hollywood event.
The actor’s admission came amid the flood of accusations against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Crews has not named his alleged assaulter, but because the incident occurred last year and falls within the statute of limitations in California, it’s very likely his case could spark a criminal investigation.
Sounds like the mass accusations being made against prominent figures in the industry have inspired Crews to not let his own assaulter get away with the inappropriate act. Good for him!
We hope Crews takes this exec down — because based on what we’ve learned from this breed of power pervs, it’s more than likely that many more have been groped by this unnamed abuser.
