Actor Terry Crews, one of the stars of the Fox comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” filed a lawsuit against agent Adam Venit alleging that Venit groped him last year at a Hollywood event, TMZ reports.
“The actor has already filed a police report claiming sexual assault and our law enforcement sources say that the investigation is ongoing,” TMZ reports. “In the lawsuit, Crews says Venit stared at him ‘like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively.’ Crews said after the alleged assault he pushed Venit away, and turned to Adam Sandler yelling, ‘Adam, come get your boy! He’s grabbing my nuts.'”
The report adds: “Crews says on his way home from the event Adam Sandler called and asked if he was OK, and Crews responded that he was surprised he got molested at age 48. He says Sandler expressed shock at Venit’s behavior.”
Crews reportedly has expressed concern about possible retaliation, given Venit’s power in the industry and the possibility that taking action against Venit might hurt the actor’s career.
