Terry Crews Sues WME Agent Adam Venit for Sexual Assault

Terry Crews Sues WME Agent Adam Venit for Sexual Assault

TMZ reports that Crews is suing Adam Venit for fondling him at an event past year, after news that Venit returned to his job at William Morris Endeavour after a measly one-month suspension.

Terry Crews is not slowing down on his moves to take down Adam Venit for sexually assaulting him at a Hollywood function some time ago.

No additional details about the suit were immediately available. A few hours later, Crews says Venit called him and apologized, claiming he was just not himself that night. Crews said when he reached out to shake Venit's hand that the agent instead grabbed Crews' genitals, squeezing them so hard that it caused him to leap back in pain.

Sandler shook his head in disbelief, Crews says, while Venit giggled and smirked.

Mr. Venit was briefly put on leave after the actor went public with his claims. Crews said after the alleged assault he pushed Venit away, and turned to Adam Sandler yelling, "Adam, come get your boy!"

Keeping track of all the sexual misconduct scandals in the news these days feels like a really depressing game of Whac-A-Mole, but today marks an important development for Terry Crews.

Last month, Crews, 49, said on "Good Morning America" that the alleged assault left him feeling "emasculated" and "objectified". "He actually grabbed my NUTS". The actor says he was assured by his agent that WME would address the issue, but never received word of any punishment.

Crews claims to have met with WME chairman Ari Emanuel, who also offered his apologies.

Crews is suing for assault, battery, sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence and negligent retention and supervision.
