Terry Crews Opens Up About Overcoming His Porn Addiction


Terry Crews was a porn addict, but good news — he beat it with a vengeance.

The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor took to Facebook to reveal that he was addicted to pornography "for years," an addiction that threatened his relationship with his wife.

Categorizing pornography addiction as a "worldwide problem" that "really messed up my life in a lot of ways," the actor said, "It became a thing where I didn't tell anybody ... and that allowed it to grow."

"It got bad," the actor added. "If day turns into night and you are still watching, you've probably got a problem, and that was me."

Crews revealed that he reached a turning point when his wife told him, "I don't know you anymore. I'm out of here."

"I literally had to go to rehab for it," Crews continued, in a post titled "Dirty Little Secret." "What I found is that, by not telling people, it becomes more powerful."

"There are a lot of people who can't stop, and I'm here to help you," Crews said.
