However, the allegation about Adam's rumored sexual misconduct will leave a mark on his professional career. He is not gay, but his rumored sexual misconduct with Terry always questions his sexuality.
But Terry has again reopened the sexual controversy with Adam that occurred back in 2016. He provided some evidence to a US Senate Committee on 26 June 2018 and stated,
"The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand, was that he held the power. That he was in control. This is how toxic masculinity permeates culture."
One of the Senators named Dianne Feinstein asked Terry why he didn't fight back against Adam who assaulted him sexually years ago. He replied that he was aggressive in the beginning but later cooled down.
Further, he revealed that he left the party with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, who always taught him not to fight when he gets provoked. After the alleged sexual misconduct, Terry visited Adam’s agency the next day where his management team said,
'We're gonna do everything in our power. We are gonna handle this, Terry. You're right, it is unacceptable.’ But there were no any measures of the consequences taken by Adam’s agency house.
On the other hand, the famous rapper, 50 Cent shared an Instagram post stating that Terry’s private part size could have prevented the attack. In an interview with TMZ, Terry talked about 50 Cent's post and gushed that he loves the rapper's music while working. Humorously, he said he proves that size doesn't matter when it comes to sexual assault.
