Terry Crews is a former NFL football player, the star of TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and movies like “The Expendables.” He’s an amazing physical specimen, has a tremendous sense of humor and is a proud family man — but now, he’s admitting about a sexual addiction that almost ruined everything in the hopes of helping others.

In a series of “live” videos entitled “Dirty Little Secret,” recorded over the last two weeks and posted to his Facebook page, Crews opens up about his addiction to pornography, hoping it will help fans with their own addictions.

“I’ve been getting a lot of messages from people with addictions — mine, being pornography,” Crews says in the latest intimate, inspirational video posted Tuesday (Feb. 23). “Once you believe you’re bad, every decision you make in your life goes by that.”

Crews compares his addiction to drinking ocean water — knowing that it’s bad for you, but consuming it anyway. The actor is posting the videos in an attempt to explain to others how to overcome pornography and its tendency to make viewers objectify women.

“I believed I was more valuable than my wife, as a human being … I was wrong,” he explains, “I had the biggest sense of entitlement ever … I felt like my wife owed me sex.”

Crews first admitted to his addiction in his memoir “Manhood” two years ago, later telling Wendy Williams: “I was addicted to pornography since I was 12 years old. My father was addicted to alcohol and my mother was addicted to religion. So what happens is, you had an addictive household.”

“My wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you any more. I’m outta here’,” he said at the time, as Crews and his wife had just undergone therapy to overcome the addiction that he says eventually led him to cheat on her.

Now, years later, Crews is eager to help his fans who may be struggling with their own addictions — and he says the first step is overcoming the alluring power of self-pity.

“You feel the need to self-medicate with pornography when your needs are not being met,” Crews explains in his Facebook video. “I’m just here to tell you: This entitlement thing is real.”
