In a candid conversation with Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast, Terry Crews, the 54-year-old host of America’s Got Talent, revealed one of the darkest periods in his life, involving a secret battle with addiction to porn. As he reflected on this challenging time, Crews admitted feeling “angry” towards his five children, who were unwittingly caught in the crossfire.
The actor and former NFL player shares his life with wife Rebecca King-Crews, and their children include son Isaiah (17) and daughters Wynfrey (18), Tera (23), Azriel (33), and Naomi. Crews recounted how his addiction led him to pick fights with his wife, creating distractions to avoid her probing questions about his struggles.
The toll on his family was immense. Crews expressed remorse, saying, “Poor woman. It was horrible. My kids, I would be angry at them for getting in the way.”
In 2021, Crews and King-Crews decided to share the intimate details of their journey through an audio memoir. The couple’s memoir, Stronger Together, delves into both heartwarming and heart-wrenching moments, highlighting the events that nearly tore their relationship apart. Despite the hardships, their love proved resilient and stood the test of time.
Today, their marriage is stronger and more joyous than ever. In Stronger Together, the couple shares their triumph over adversity, providing insight into how their love survived difficult challenges. Crews’ 2014 memoir, Manhood, also contributed to their decision to share their story, as it explores his struggles with porn addiction and infidelity.
Rebecca King-Crews, 57, praised her husband, describing him as the “hero” of their story. She commended his bravery in confronting his demons and taking the initiative to become a better person. Their shared journey of growth and healing serves as a testament to the power of love and determination to overcome even the most daunting obstacles.
