Last month, actor Terry Crews revealed he was sexually assaulted by a high level Hollywood executive – after a number of A-list actresses came forward about their unwanted sexual experiences in Tinseltown. Crews didn’t share the name of his alleged accuser when disclosing his experiences of unwanted touching and assault. But his perpetrator has now been revealed as Adam Venit, the agent who currently leads led William Morris Endeavor’s motion picture group. 

In a Variety exclusive, a source close to the situation said “Crews…has been preparing to cite Venit as the unnamed executive” for days. 

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor came forward about his Behind-the-scenes, Hollywood dealings just days after the New Yorker and The New York Times released shocking exposés revealing decades of sexual assault in Hollywood. 

He turned to Twitter to share his plight with the dark side of show biz.

It’s confirmed that Venit “is on leave from the agency as it probes an allegation of sexual harassment involving actor Terry Crews,” reports Variety.

Reps for William Morris, Venit, and Crews have declined to comment.
