Terry Crews claims that he faces severe retaliation after he filed a suit against WME agent Adam Venit for purported sexual assault.

The 49-year-old, who alleged that Venit groped his genitals at a party last year, posted on Twitter that he believes his family is being followed and has been bugged since he filed the lawsuit against the Hollywood big shot.

“I believe my family is being tracked and bugged,” Crews said. “Someone hacked into the computer that my son and I built together. I have to replace the hard drive.”

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star indicated that Russell Simmons, who has now been accused of the rape of four victims, was asked to “pressure” him into dropping the case by executives at WME.

“They thought he was the ‘King of Black people,'” Crews said about Simmons.

The actor noted that if he were to have a “timely accident” — “you know where to look.”

He alleged that the LAPD told him that big shots in the business would not play fair and would do anything to keep their secrets hidden.

“Retaliation is expected- I would be naive to think otherwise… But vulnerability and openness is my best protection,” he concluded.

Terry Crews filed his suit against Venit in December after he first accused him of the assault on Twitter in October when numerous women started sharing their own “MeToo” stories.

“I did not know this man,” the former player said of Venit on “Good Morning America” in November.

“He comes over. I stick my hand out, and he takes his and squeezes my genitals, and I jump back like hey, and he is sticking his tongue out and all this stuff,” Crews revealed in the interview.

Venit was suspended from the William Morris Endeavor (WME) agency after the accusations first surfaced, but he has since gone to work.
