Terry Crews Admits He Has Been Addicted To Porn

Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews has revealed he once had an addiction to porn and struggled with infidelity - referring to himself as a 'toxic male'.

Crews, 52, opened up about his marriage with Rebecca King in a new interview with Extra, tying into the launch of their new Audible book Stronger Together.

The couple admitted that they've had their ups and downs, with Crews saying he has struggled with infidelity and porn, adding: "You gotta understand, the marriage was dead."

King, 55, said she'd had her suspicions, explaining: "There's some dirt in this rathole... And I had this kind of sick feeling in my stomach and this nervous feeling. And I'm like, 'Something is fishy.'"

Crews continued: "I truly don't think I would've survived... without Rebecca's courage to stand up to me and say, 'That's it.' And basically pull the plug on our marriage."

Eventually, they divulged everything one day - which they called 'D-Day', with Crews saying: "I just went and told her everything. I told her I was unfaithful 10 years earlier. I told her about my addiction to pornography."

He added: "I would like to describe myself as a toxic male."

The couple have now been married for 32 years, have five children together and say their relationship has 'healed'.

"Now we don't have to blow up before we glow up," King said.

Crews said: "See, this is the thing - and I truly believe this - when you do the right thing, the universe will bless you... Us being stronger together was the best decision for us."

For other couples facing similar challenges, they recommend forgiveness and therapy.

When they dug deep for their new memoir, things naturally left them feeling a little vulnerable.

But King said: "I like to say, 'You don't tell the testimony till you're through the test. And every so often when the emotion might get a little deep we just hugged each other. And I'll say to him again... I'll say, 'I forgive you, Terry'."

Crews recently resumed filming the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine after delays due to the pandemic, having been snapped on set with co-stars Melissa Fumero and Andre Braugher.

Posting the selfie on Instagram, Fumero wrote: "Ba ba ba back in the Nine Nine!!!! Yesterday, I was so excited to be back at work I forgot to take a pic to commemorate the occasion so here's from Day 2. #Brooklyn99."
