Terry Crews sues Hollywood agent who allegedly groped him
Terry Crews is taking legal action against the Hollywood honcho he accused of sexually assaulting him last year.
The former NFL player-turned-actor filed a lawsuit against Adam Venit, a prominent agent who Crews claims grabbed his genitals during a party in February 2016, TMZ reported.
Crews — who first came forward with the groping accusation in a Twitter thread in October — claims in the legal filing that he called out to Adam Sandler after the party where the alleged encounter occurred.
"'Adam, come get your boy! He's grabbing my nuts,'" Crews claims he yelled after getting groped, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also asserts Sandler called Crews later the night, and both men expressed how stunned they were by Venit's alleged misconduct.
Crews contends he's experienced psychological distress following the incident and is concerned Venit's standing in Hollywood could impact his acting career, according to the TMZ report.
