WME agent Adam Venit on leave after being identified as subject of Terry Crews' sexual harassment allegations

November 03 2017

Agent Adam Venit, the head of WME (William Morris Endeavor)'s motion picture group, is on leave as the agency investigates sexual harassment allegations from actor Terry Crews, who is a client of WME.

At the beginning of the Hollywood "floodgate" of victims of sexual assault and harassment speaking up, Crews was one of the early voices, describing an encounter with a Holywood exec on Twitter.

Sources have told Variety that Crews had been planning to reveal Venit was the executive that groped him. After Variety's report, THR confirmed Verit was the subject of Crews' allegations.

Venit represents the likes of Emma Stone, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Diane Keaton, Sylvester Stallone and more. He did not represent Crews.

We will update this developing story as we get more information.
