Terry Crews is coming forward with disturbing details about the sexual assault he claims he endured from a Hollywood heavyweight.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star names head of WME’s motion picture group, Adam Venit, as the culprit and described the incident on Good Morning America on Wednesday. Last week, he filed a police report with the LAPD but didn’t disclose Venit’s name until now.
He explained that the high-powered agent who reps Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy among others, assaulted him at a party in Tinseltown last year.
“He’s connected to probably everyone I know in the business,” he said. “I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever. I knew of him … The first time I ever had an interaction with him was at this event.
He went on to describe the disgusting behavior that followed.
“I’m looking at him and he’s basically staring at me and he’s sticking his tongue out. Just overtly sexual kind of tongue moves. It’s a party, it’s packed, the whole thing,” he explained. “And I’m looking like, ‘Is this a joke? I don’t understand.’ It was actually so bizarre. And he keeps coming over to me. I stick my hand out and he literally takes his hand and puts it, squeezes my genitals. And I jump back like, ‘Hey, hey!’ … I go, ‘Dude, what are you doing?’”
Shockingly, the unwanted advances didn’t stop there.
“And then he comes back again and he just won’t stop. And then I really got forceful, pushed him back, he bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing,” he said. “I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified. I went over to Adam (Sandler) right then and there and said, ‘Man, come get your boy. What is his problem?’”
