Cape Town - American actor Terry Crews claims his family is being bugged in retaliation after he filed a lawsuit against Adam Venit of talent agency William Morris Endeavour (WME) for alleged sexual assault.

In October, the 49-year-old joined a long list of Hollywood actors who decided to publicly reveal they’ve been victims of sexual assault using the #MeToo campaign.

"I did not know this man," Terry said on Good Morning America.

"He comes over to me. I stick my hand out and he takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals and I jump back like hey, hey and he's like... he still is sticking his tongue out and all this stuff.”

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star recently took to Twitter to claim his family is being tracked and bugged since he filed the lawsuit against the talent agent in December.

"I believe my family is being tracked and possibly bugged," he wrote.

"Someone hacked into the computer my son and I built together. I have to shut it down and replace the hard drive."

Terry also claims that producer Russell Simmons, who’s also been accused of raping four women, was asked to “pressure” him into dropping the case by WME executives, reports Daily News.

"Somehow they thought he was the ‘king of black people’," Terry tweeted about Simmons.

According to Rolling Out, the former American football player claims the Los Angeles police department had informed him that the Hollywood big shots wouldn’t play fair to keep their dirty laundry a secret.

"Retaliation in some form is expected ? I would be naive to think otherwise . . . But vulnerability and openness is actually my best protection," he says.

Venit was temporarily suspended from WME in the wake of the allegations but has since returned to work.
