Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Sep 07 (ANI): Adam Venit is making plans to leave William Morris Endeavor (WME), 10 months after Terry Crews accused him of sexual assault.
Terry Crews, Adam Venit and WME have settled the lawsuit which was filed by Crews last year against Venit, reported Variety.
Last year's sexual assault scandal was one of the reasons that led to Venit's final decision to leave the company he had been with since its founding.
Venit worked at Endeavor from 1996 to 2009, after which the company merged with the William Morris agency. He started his career in the mailroom of Creative Artists Agency, where he worked for about 11 years before becoming a leader in the talent department.
He has repped some of Hollywood's biggest stars including Adam Sandler and Sylvester Stallone and was also responsible for some of the huge client agreements which included Sandler's massive deal with Netflix.
However, his career took a downfall when former client Terry Crews accused Venit of groping him at a party, last year. Crews first disclosed it on Twitter before filing a police report about the incident.
Venit was suspended for 30 days while the agency was investigating the charges against him. Though Venit was eventually cleared of the allegations, he stepped down as the head of the motion picture department.
A lawsuit was filed by Crews which is now in the process of being settled, charges against Venit were also dismissed. (ANI)
