Terry Crews believes there’s some suspicious activity going on after he filed a lawsuit against WMG agent Adam Venit for alleged sexual assault.
According to his tweets, Crews says his family is being tracked and possibly bugged. He says that Russell Simmons, who is accused of raping four women, put pressure on him to drop the case by WMG executives. He then claims that his computer was hacked.
My assailant Adam Venit is the founding partner at @WME, a corporation worth over $8 billion.— terrycrews (@terrycrews) December 16, 2017
I believe my family is being tracked and possibly bugged.
I also believe @unclerush was asked to pressure me into dropping my case by @WME execs. Somehow they thought he was the “King of Black people”.— terrycrews (@terrycrews) December 16, 2017
Someone hacked into the computer my son and I built together. I have to shut it down and replace the hard drive.
Furthermore, when he brought the issue to the LAPD, they responded with “these [Hollywood executives] don’t play fair” and warned him that they would do everything in their power to keep their secrets private.
LAPD task force detectives let me know these people don’t play fair. There are a lot of secrets to protect, and they will do anything to keep them.— terrycrews (@terrycrews) December 16, 2017
The town is compromised. But me, and my team, are not.
If I were to have a timely “accident” — you know where to look.
Retaliation in some form is expected- I would be naive to think otherwise...— terrycrews (@terrycrews) December 16, 2017
But vulnerability and openness is actually my best protection.
Crews filed a lawsuit earlier this month against Venit for allegedly groping him at a party last year. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star also filed a police report in November and the investigation is ongoing, according to TMZ.
During an interview with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, he detailed what happened at Adam Sandler’s event last year.
“[Venit's] basically staring at me, and sticking his tongue out, just overtly sexual kind of tongue moves," Crews recalled. He says Venit approached him and squeezed his genitals at multiple points. "I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified, I was horrified," he said. "I went over to Adam right then and there, and I went 'Adam, come get your boy. What is his problem?'" The behavior was "bizarre to both of us.”
Venit apologized a few hours later, claiming that he wasn’t himself. But the damage seems to be doing more harm to Crews than Venit, who was only suspended for 30 days from WMG before going back to work.
Many fans of Crews came out to show him support. One launched the hashtag #SaveTerryCrews.
