While Adam Venit, the man who allegedly sexually assaulted Terry Crews, may be back to work after his suspension, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor is not giving the A-list Hollywood agent a pass.
Crews has filed a lawsuit against Venit.
According to TMZ, in the lawsuit Crews filed against Adam Venit, he accuses Venit of staring at him “like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively.” He goes on to say that after Venit grabbed his genitals, he pushed him away and yelled to Adam Sandler, “Adam, come get your boy! He’s grabbing my nuts.”
Apparently after the event, Crews received a phone call from Sandler to see if he was OK. Crews told him he was surprised that he got molested at age 48, and Sandler reportedly expressed shock at Venit’s actions.
Soon after, Crews texted his agent at William Morris Endeavor, where Venit works, and told him about the alleged assault. Venit phoned him a few hours after that call and apologized, saying he was just not himself that night.
But nothing really happened to Venit after that until Crews called him out on Twitter on October 10.
The actual text to my agent Brad Slater at @WME 28 hours after my February 4th 2016 assault by the agency's Adam Venit.
Yet WME's Co-Chairman @AriEmanuel says he didn't know anything about anyone until my tweets 18 MONTHS LATER.
TMZ also wrote that Crews says he met with WME’s chairman Ari Emanuel, who apologized for Venit’s behavior. Crews says he told Emanuel he feared retaliation, but Emanuel said Venit “did not have that level of power despite his title as head of the Motion Picture Department.”
