Terry Crews Suing Talent Agency

Terry Crews has lawyered up. The 49-year-old actor alleges talent agents at William Morris Endeavor

“knowingly permitted and encouraged to engage in sexually predatory conduct”

and filed a lawsuit against the agency and one of its top executives. He claims that he was subjected to sexual assault, sexual harassment, gender violence and emotional distress during and after a Feb. 2016 incident in which he says he was repeatedly groped by a talent executive.

The lawsuit recounts allegations that agent Adam Venit groped him at the Hollywood party last year and details the actor’s efforts to see Venit disciplined after the incident. Crews complained about Venit to agency chairman Ari Emanuel, and the two men have retaliated against him for going public with his allegations, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit says the agency knew Venit was predatory and condoned his behavior by failing to punish him for it.

As previously reported, in October, Crews revealed on social media that he was groped by a high-level talent agent at an industry event. Crews discussed the incident and named Venit as his attacker on “Good Morning America” last month.

    I find it hard to believe that this big ole strapping black man didn’t beat the breaks off another man touching his genitils, I simply find it hard to believe unless he liked it and became embarssed because he did.

      He already explains why he didn’t beat the guy up, did you even watch the GMA interview…. ?

    Suing all these years later is just fucking ridiculous; you’re bigger than that at this late stage of the game. You’ve already embarrassed the guy and he will no longer be able to work; is work for Terry so hard to come by now that this is what he’s doing? Or is he trying to set a precedent so men all over can start suing?
