Terry Crews Says AMI Once Tried to 'Silence' Him by 'Fabricating Stories' About Prostitutes

Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star accused WME agent Adam Venit of groping him at a party

<snip>

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews is the latest person to say that National Enquirer parent company American Media Inc. once tried to “silence” him by threatening to release a damaging story about him.

“This same company, AMI, tried to silence me in my lawsuit against [WME] and Adam Venit by fabricating stories of me with prostitutes — and even went so far as creating fake receipts,” Crews wrote in a tweet on Friday. “I called their bluff by releasing their threats online. They blinked.”

Crews’ tweet linked to a news story in which Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the company tried to blackmail him by threatening to release private photos that he had exchanged with a former girlfriend.




Crews named WME in a December 2017 sexual assault lawsuit after publicly accusing Venit, a then-agent at the company, of groping him at a party.

IMG, a marketing subsidiary of WME parent Endeavor, has represented AMI on licensing deals for several years, an AMI spokesman told The Daily Beast last summer."

2. The floodgates are opening. The victims of AMI are finding strength in numbers.

It is going to get very ugly for AMI, Pecker and the National Enquirer.

3. In two years we're gonna be sorry.

The National Enquirer will go the the way of the answering machine, pet rocks, and typewriters. Where will we get the truth about batboy and lesbian bigfeet then?

5. Dan Abrahams said tonight that he thinks someone high profile will come out and

sue them for defamation. He also said the board is stepping in to investigate and he said that is 'not good'.

So I'm glad AMI and it's pecker are getting fucked in every available orifice.

6. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Bezos rolled AMI over, and exposed it's belly.

'The National Enquirer' actually got some stuff right, more than a few times. But, their main thing (in my opinion,....and I hardly ever read that rag....I think I just read it by accident one time at my elderly aunt's house...ANYWAY, I am drifting from my point) was the approach of "where there is smoke, there is fire"

My point is, that anyone that the Enquirer has written about (regardless of whether or not, the story was actually true) can claim the Enquirer blackmailed them. There's just not a good response to that charge now. What can they say..."You're wrong. We didn't start blackmailing people until after we posted the story about you."
