The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star claimed a William Morris Endeavor agent groped him at a party.

Actor Terry Crews and agent Adam Venit have agreed to settle a lawsuit in which Crews alleged Venit groped him at a Hollywood party. Venit’s agency William Morris Endeavor, also named as a defendant, confirmed the deal Thursday (Sept. 6) in a statement saying the lawsuit would be dismissed.

Crews filed the civil lawsuit Jan. 30, saying that Venit grabbed and squeezed his crotch at a 2016 party. Crews was among the most prominent men to come forward as a victim in the #MeToo movement.

Venit denied the allegations in court documents, saying his actions toward Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Crews were not sexual and caused no harm. Prosecutors declined to file criminal charges in the case.

Crews’ representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
