Terry Crews Says He Pays Former Agency: ‘I Still Have to Send a Check to My Molester’

“I look at my bank statement, and I’m like, ‘Damn, this is the most wrong thing of all time'”

Terry Crews says he still pays his former agency WME despite the sexual assault case he’s pursuing against company executive Adam Venit.

“This is the deal,” Crews told reporters at Esquire’s 2018 Mavericks of Hollywood party on Tuesday night, according to Page Six. “What’s so strange and crazy is that I’m still paying them. I go to work, and I still have to send a check to my molester.”

Crews filed a sexual assault report against Venit with the Los Angeles Police Department in December, saying his former agent groped his genitals at a party. The case is currently under review at the District Attorney’s office, and Crews has also filed a separate lawsuit.

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star fired the agency after going public with his accusation, later signing with UTA, but the actor said he’s still paying WME all these months later.

“This is Hollywood, it is insane,” Crews said. “I look at my bank statement, and I’m like, ‘Damn, this is the most wrong thing of all time.’ I’m calling it, I’m going to play this whole thing out. If I don’t get justice, nobody can.”

WME completed a two-week investigation into Venit’s conduct and stripped him of his position as head of the agency’s motion picture group, opting to keep him on as an agent — a move Crews described at the time as Venit getting “a pass.”

“[Venit] tried to tell everyone it wasn’t sexual. How do you do that? How is that possible? The level of ridiculousness that this has gone to, and they’re looking at me as if I’m ridiculous for even saying anything,” Crews said. “I’m not putting up with it. No one should. No woman, no child, no man, anywhere, in whatever business, should ever put up with being treated less than a human being, ever.”
