TMZ reports that Crews is suing Adam Venit for fondling him at an event a year ago, after news that Venit returned to his job at William Morris Endeavour after a measly one-month suspension.

The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star said he met with WME co-CEO and chairman Ari Emanuel, who apologized for the way Venit acted.

No additional details about the suit were immediately available.

Venit was initially suspended by WME but has now returned to work. Jumping back I said What are you doing?!

The lawsuit goes on to mention that on his way home from the event, Sandler called to ask if he was OK, to which Crews responded that he was surprised he got molested at age 48.

Crews, star of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, states in the lawsuit that he is seeking to hold Venit and WME accountable for the alleged February 4, 2016 sexual assault by Venit on Crews on.

The actor has already filed a police report claiming sexual assault and our law enforcement sources say that the investigation is ongoing.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit also says that Venit stared at Crews "like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively".

Mr. Crews then instructed actor Adam Sandler - one of Mr. Venit's clients - to intervene. He says Sandler seemed shocked by what had transpired. "He's grabbing my nuts". The actor said Venit eventually called him to apologize. However, Emanuel assured Crews that Venit, "did not have that level of power despite his title as head of the Motion Picture Department".

Crews is now seeking monetary and punitive damages for assault, battery, sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence and intention infliction of emotional distress.
