As previously reported, Crews revealed in a series of tweets on Oct. 10, that he was groped last year at a Hollywood event by a “high-level” executive. Crews wrote that he was with his wife at the function when the Hollywood exec came over and grabbed his “privates” and that the alleged assailant then “grinned like a jerk” when Crews asked what he was doing.
Sources close to the situation told Variety that Crews in recent days has been preparing to name Venit publicly.
Crews, a former NFL star is currently known for his work on the comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” is also a client of WME. The actor also tweeted about why he didn’t fight back at the time of the incident, pointing to what he said would have been a racially-charged reaction to his behavior.
