Terry Crews Sues WME & “Rabid Dog” Adam Venit For s3xual a.ssault

A week after Adam Venit went back to work as an agent at WME, Terry Crews is taking the uber-agency and the former head of its Motion Picture Group to court for s3xual a.ssault and s3xual battery. The nine-claim complaint also claims this isn’t the first time Venit has acted in such an inappropriate manner, and the company run by Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell knows it.

“It is now time to hold Venit accountable for his s3xual predatory behavior and to hold WME accountable for its conduct in condoning, ratifying, and encouraging Venit’s s3xual predatory behavior,” says the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and ex-WME client in a complaint filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, stemming from Crews’ allegation that Venit grabbed Crews’ genitals at a party in February 2016. “Indeed, a message needs to be sent to those in power who abuses those over whom they can exert influence and control that abuse and s3xual predatory behavior will not be tolerated.”

“Crews is informed and believes that Venit has a long history of bizarre behavior and has engaged in prior s3xual predatory acts all of which WME was fully aware,” added the filing, which seeks unspecified but widespread damages. “Yet, WME did not take any action to deal with Venit’s misconduct and allowed him to prey on WME clients, like Crews.”

WME did not respond to request for comment on the filing and the allegations in Crews’ complaint. After going public with the matter in early October on social media, Crews went to LAPD Hollywood division in early November to file a s3xual a.ssault report. He dropped WME as his agency the next day.

While Crews has been vocal about the alleged a.ssault for almost two months now, Monday’s court filing offers a much more vivid vision of what happened that night. “As soon as Crews saw Venit, he knew something was not right with him,” lawyers at L.A. firm Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae LLP state. “Venit stared at Crews intently, like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively. This behavior was extremely concerning, especially considering that Crews had never met Venit before.”

With what is described as a “leer” in the complaint, the agent squeezed Crews’ genitals repeatedly even as the muscular ex-NFL player tried to push him away and get the attention of others at the event. “Adam, come get your boy! He’s grabbing my nuts!” the filing claims Crews yelled to nearby Venit client Adam Sandler, who “shook his head at Venit in disbelief as Venit just stood there giggling and smirking at Crews and his wife.”

The 23-page complaint said Sandler reached out to Crews later that evening in sympathy.

“Notwithstanding Adam Sandler’s apology, Venit’s s3xual a.ssault had an immediate negative impact on Crews in addition to the actual pain it caused, ” the filing reads. “He also suffered from psychological issues as a result of the s3xual a.ssault and has stated that he has never felt more emasculated and objectified.”

The December 4 lawsuit comes after Venit apologized to Crews for the incident that night, after the actor laid out what happened on the phone to his own now former agent Brad Slater. It also follows WME boss Emanuel supposedly apologizing too in person last month, telling Crews that Venit couldn’t hurt his career because he lacked the power despite his prestige position at the uber-agency and repping the likes of Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Sylvester Stallone and more.

“As if realizing the ridiculousness of his comments, Emanuel then quickly changed the subject and described his plan to suspend Venit for thirty days without pay, loss of his title, and he would have to enter some sort of rehab or treatment for addiction,” the suit says of the Hollywood power player.

The document then says that the 6-foot-4, African-American Crews asked Emanuel if the law would have punished him if he “hurt” 5’7” Venit if he defended himself. “Emanuel agreed with Crews, but still would not punish Venit for Venit’s s3xual a.ssault on Crews,” the suit adds. After more conversation in which Crews compared Emanuel’s seemingly muted reaction to how he let loose on Mel Gibson for his 2011 anti-Semitic tirade, the exec said, “WME would do an internal investigation, and should WME find any other s3xual a.ssault, Venit would be terminated.”

Clearly that didn’t happened, and now the courtroom is the new arena for this.

BTW – if you still shake your head and think what is a guy built like Crews so upset about, consider two things. One, the canvas of public use that African-American bodies have been reduced to time and time again in our society in the degradation of institutionalized racism. Two, imagine someone painfully squeeze your genitals over and over in public and acted like it was a big joke – seem funny or OK? Now, you see.

While not addressing the lawsuit, Crews has been vocal today about the industry’s behind-the-scenes moves on social media:

A job ain’t worth more than my manhood b. I’ll be the crazy black man and More if a n*gga grip a handful of my nuts in front of my wife.

And if she decides to leave me cause our lifestyle changes from me being “blackballed” then she wasn’t a down one to begin with.

Dude was comfortable enough to do that with terry crews cuz he had past experience messin with him like that. Now this dude sees oppurtunity like a female and using it.

I find it interesting that no one else has come out about dude. With how this been going in Hollywood, you would've think at least 3 or 4 more ppl would have come out against dude.

What if Crews is lying?

What I find hilarious, is that if a dude a.ssaults another dude, we immediately believe it. But if it is a woman, BX be in these threads talkin bout that bi*ch lying and regrets sleeping with the dude.

Terry Crews hinted that power people and TMZ were trying to conspire against him to ruin his name. Y'all calling this dude a coward. He is putting his life on the line literally and all y'all concerned with is why he didn't punch dude. n*ggas are so simple minded sometimes.

Something is seriously wrong with you. Terry Crews played EVERYTHING the right way.

You just stuck on n*gga time. Anybody that cares about their career or paper wouldn't dare try and beat someone's a.ss at an industry event.

Terry was the first person to say he was s3xually a.ssaulted before all of the s3xual a.ssault allegations windfall for all those actors and execs. What if none of the Harvey Weinstein s3xual allegations came out? The whole narrative would have been angry black actor causes bodily harm to beloved Hollywood exec. That same exec would have had Terry put in jail and prosecuted.

Is he supposed to feel better or get any gratitude that he beat someone s while sitting in jail???

Please get off n*gga time fam

I swear money truly run y’all.

Just go ahead and say u don’t mind selling your soul or sucking pole to keep your “industry job”. Basically what u saying.

U should let your boss at your job fondle your nuts for a raise.

They call u a n*gga and think crazy bout your black a.ss whether u do something or not.

And i wouldn’t have to speak on it. Like u said it would be a news story.

Trust and believe this sh*t he doing is blackballing him already. So y lose your manhood along with it?


And since your a.ss wouldn’t f!ght him. Y didn’t Terry go to the police about it in the first place when the incident occurred. That would’ve been the right thing to do and not the “n*gga” thing to do.

Miss me with that bullsh*t.
