Crews - who now stars on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" - contends he's experienced psychological distress following the incident and is concerned Venit's standing in Hollywood could impact his acting career, according to the TMZ report.

Shortly after the news that Venit was back at WME broke, Crews tweeted, "Someone got a pass".

Last month, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and former National Football League player accused William Morris Endeavor (WME) agent Venit of groping him at a party in 2016, claiming that Adam Sandler had been present at the time. The actor is taking his allegations against Adam Venit to court.

Crews accused Adam Venit of grabbing his genitals at a party and said in a police report he filed last month that Venit looked "like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively".

There are no more specific details about the lawsuit, but we'll continue to keep you updated. It also alleges that Crews told Adam Sandler - who is represented by Venit and was present at the party - about the incident at the time, and that Sandler called Crews later that evening to check up on him. "He actually grabbed my NUTS". He says Sandler seemed shocked by what had transpired.

Venit was initially suspended by WME but has now returned to work.

As part of his claim, Crews says he has never felt more emasculated than when Venit allegedly gropes him, and says that he fears repercussions for his career due to Venit's power within the industry.

According to TMZ, Crews also claims that Venit himself called him and apologised for his actions that night, saying he wasn't acting like himself.
