Terry Crews says Radar Online tried to threaten him after he exposed talent agent Adam Venit for grabbing his genitals at a party in Feb. 2016.
The 49-year-old actor made the accusation on Twitter.com Sunday.
“1 day after my @GMA interview, @radaronline threatened me w/ a false story abt me hiring 2 hookers at the 2015 Monte Carlo TV Festival,” Crews tweeted.
His tweet was in reference to his appearance on Good Morning America. He said the next day, he received an email from RadarOnline threatening to report he hired 2 prostitutes while on holiday with his wife in Monaco.
Crews included a screengrab of an email, with the subject line:
“RadarOnine RE: Terry Crews: To whom it may concern, RadarOnline intends to publish a story today reporting Terry Crews hired two prostitutes — one of African descent and one Caucasian — on June 16, 2015, while staying at the Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, Monaco… Mr. Crews chose the two prostitutes from the web site ‘Euro Escort Girls’ and paid €2,800 for their company. Please provide comment by 6 PM EST today.”
Crews didn’t say whether he responded to the email, but RadarOnline didn’t report the story.
“It never went 2 press because it was a lie. This was not a coincidence. I told u they were coming 4 me. I also told you I am ready.” Crews tweeted, implying that Hollywood was protecting Venit.
RadarOnline’s parent company, AMI, also owns the National Enquirer, OK!, Star and Us Weekly magazines.
