Crews said he ultimately yelled out to Sandler, who was nearby, saying "Adam, come get your boy! He's grabbing my nuts".
Crews also said in the documents that Venit called to apologize for what he did, saying he wasn't himself that night.
While this news was breaking, Crews also confirmed that the man he accused of threatening him with a false story was indeed Dylan Howard, who has been accused of sexual misconduct during his time as chief editor of publications including The National Enquirer and Radar Online.
Meanwhile, his pal Isaiah Washington said Crews is a "victim", and Hollywood blackballing him is like "victimization on top of victimization", he said.
TMZ reports that Crews has now filled a lawsuit against Venit over the alleged assault.
Crews - who first came forward with the groping accusation in a Twitter thread in October - claims in the legal filing that he called out to Adam Sandler after the party where the alleged encounter occurred. "I stick my hand out and he takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals and I jump back like hey, hey and he's like - he still is sticking his tongue out and all this stuff", Crews said in the interview.
The docs also noted Sandler was shocked by his agent's actions. Afterward, Sandler called to check on Crews and find out more of what had happened, and apologized for the incident. The actor says he was assured by his agent that WME would address the issue, but never received word of any punishment.
Crews detailed the incident in a series of Tweets, before firing the agency and discussing the situation on Good Morning America. Venit was demoted, and no longer holds his former title as head of the motion picture department at WME, but remains an agent at the company representing A-list clients. Crews maintains the suspension was nothing more than a slap on the wrist and claims he was pressured to stop talking about the assault.
Venit did not immediately respond to Business Insider's requests for comment.
