Terry Crews is sticking to his guns as he sues Hollywood agent Adam Venit for allegedly groping his genitals in 2016, even in the face of potentially losing a part in the upcoming Expendables film.

Crews tweeted yesterday that a producer from the movie has threatened to remove him if he doesn’t drop the lawsuit, as star Sylvester Stallone is represented by the accused.

ORIGINAL STORY: 12/5/2017

Terry Crews has decided to take legal action against the Hollywood agent he accused of sexually assaulting him last year, filing a lawsuit against Adam Venit for allegedly grabbing his genitals at an industry event.

The Brooklyn-Nine-Nine star first came forward with the troubling accusations in a lengthy Twitter rant, inspired by the many women and men who have also called out their A-list abusers, such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and others.

Crews was initially met with speculation, and he was even encouraged by Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons to forgive Venit and help him be reinstated at the William Morris Endeavor (WME) agency after his suspension. He has since returned to work.

Gabrielle Union, Isaiah Washington and more have since lent Crews their support.

The athlete-turned-actor contends he’s experienced psychological distress following the incident and is concerned Venit’s standing in Hollywood could impact his acting career, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. Documents also indicate that Crews told Big Daddy actor Adam Sandler about the incident that night.
