Terry Crews Suing WME Agent He Claims Groped Him

Terry Crews Suing WME Agent He Claims Groped Him

Terry Crews is taking legal action against Adam Venit, the William Morris Endeavor agent he claims sexually assaulted him.

Crews says he knew something was wrong immediately because Venit was staring at him "like a rabid dog" - and, instead of shaking his hand, grabbed his genitals.

The actor has already filed a police report claiming sexual assault and our law enforcement sources say that the investigation is ongoing.

But besides that apology, and despite the fact that Crews reported the incident to his own agent at WME, Crews said he did not see the agency take any action against Venit.

Sandler later called Crews and asked him if he was OK, Crews said.

On the video, which was recorded in 2005, Trump talks about forcing himself on women, kissing them and groping them. Kasowitz said his motion to dismiss Zervos' defamation claim "has nothing to do with putting anyone above the law".

While this news was breaking, Crews also confirmed that the man he accused of threatening him with a false story was indeed Dylan Howard, who has been accused of sexual misconduct during his time as chief editor of publications including The National Enquirer and Radar Online.

Last month, Crews, 49, said on "Good Morning America" that the alleged assault left him feeling "emasculated" and "objectified".

Terry Crews has filed suit against Adam Venit. Jumping back I said What are you doing?! Venit has since returned to the agency but Crews is not backing down from his case. "It was embarrassing. Sandler had to call me to apologize". No word how much in damages the actor is seeking. Venit was demoted, and no longer holds his former title as head of the motion picture department at WME, but remains an agent at the company representing A-list clients. Upon providing this reminder, Crews wrote in all caps: "ABUSERS PROTECT ABUSERS".

Sexual assault is wrong no matter the gender of the victim or the assaulter.

At the time of publishing, Venit has not publicly responded to the allegations.
