In early October, Terry Crews came forward with allegations that a “high level” Hollywood executive sexually harassed him last year by walking up to him at an event and grabbing his genitals. Crews didn’t name the man in question, but Variety says that he has recently been preparing to confirm that it was Adam Venit, the head of talent agency WME’s motion pictures group—of which Crews is a client. Venit has reportedly been put on leave by WME now while it investigates the allegations, though neither he nor WME have commented on the situation just yet.

As Variety notes, Venit happens to represent Dustin Hoffman and Brett Ratner, both of whom have been accused of harassment recently, as well as Emma Stone, Adam Sandler, Diane Keaton, and Vince Vaughn. He was reportedly involved in Sandler’s huge deal with Netflix, is working to make Creed 2 happen, and also helped revitalize M. Night Shyamalan’s recent career with Wayward Pines and Split.
