Terry Crews is taking legal action against Adam Venit, the William Morris Endeavor agent he claims sexually assaulted him.
As you’ve probably read by now, the former head of their motion picture department has since returned to the Los Angeles talent agency after a one month unpaid suspension, which the actor expressed was a “pass.”
Terry has since filed a police report, and there is an investigation ongoing.
And according to TMZ, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star has now decided to sue Adam, who he alleges grabbed him by the genitals at a Hollywood party last year.
The 49-year-old further described the altercation in the court documents, claiming the agent was staring at him “like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively,” and also added he tried to call Adam Sandler to step in after pushing Venit off.
He remembered saying:
“Adam, come get your boy! He’s grabbing my nuts.”
On his way home from the event, he says the Big Daddy star called him to make sure he was okay, and expressed shock over the agent’s actions.
Terry also added he called up his own WME agent the next day to speak about the alleged sexual assault, and that Venit actually called him to apologize just hours later, saying he wasn’t himself. Additionally, the actor met with WME’s chairman Ari Emanuel, who also apologized for the agent’s actions.
He claims Ari told him not to worry about retribution as he said Adam “did not have that level of power despite his title as head of the Motion Picture Department.”
Still, Terry fears the agent may try to harm his career, and included in the lawsuit how he’s suffered psychologically since the alleged assault.
There are no more specific details about the lawsuit, but we’ll continue to keep you updated.
