Agent 'On Leave' After Reportedly Being Accused of Sexually Assaulting Terry Crews

Actor Terry Crews made headlines last month when he revealed his experience being sexually assaulted by an unnamed Hollywood executive. That exec is reportedly on the verge of being outed, and he's already preparing for the backlash.

Variety reports that the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor is preparing to name Adam Venit, talent agency WME's head of motion pictures, as his assaulter.

Venit is reportedly "on leave" ahead of the accusation being made public.

Neither WME nor Crew's representatives chose to comment on the report.

Crews came forward with the allegations last month after the Harvey Weinstein allegations came public.

Crews said the incident occurred at a show business function in Hollywood. While with his wife, an executive, whom he chose not to name, walked up and began to grope his genitals.

"Jumping back I said 'What are you doing?!' " Crews wrote. "My wife saw everything, [and] we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk."

Crews then contacted those who worked with the exec. The executive called him and apologized for his actions, but refused to explain why he committed the crime.


The actor, who also appeared in The Expendables and White Chicks, then decided to not pursue legal action. He was too afraid of the industry backlash that would result.
