Terry Crew Speaks On Porn Addiction And His Marriage

Terry Crew Speaks On Porn Addiction And His Marriage

Terry Crews and his wife Rebecca King Crews have been married for 30-years and counting. However, their journey as a couple has been far from a smooth ride, in part, because of Terry’s admitted addiction to pornography.

The celebrity couple are telling their tales of broken trust and hurt, which nearly ruined their marriage and family, and the long road to recovery in a joint audiobook, Stronger Together according to a report by Daily Mail.

The former NFL player and television personality said they got the idea to do the memoir, released on Thursday, while on a conference in Vietnam where he dived into themes of positivity and motivation.

During a question-and-answer, a woman asked how his marriage survived despite all the chaos? The America’s Got Talent host handed the microphone over to his wife, who proceeded to get up on the stage and do what Terry called: ‘a slam dunk.’

‘People were going, “Oh my God, this is what we need.”‘

Terry went on to share that ‘one perspective is not enough on something like this; two perspectives, especially a husband and wife, gives a 3-D view and really opens this thing up really, really, wide.’

‘I’m not one to talk about my struggles while I’m in them,’ Rebecca explained. I’m not going to Instagram you from the middle of my battle, but I will talk about it when I come to the other side.’

When they feel like it was the right time to collaborate on their story, they were inspired by wanting to give hope to couples going through similar situations through their memoir.

The Everybody Hates Chris star said his actions got so bad that his wife told him not to come home.

Devastated by the consequences of his actions, Terry experienced what he called a watershed moment when a good friend gave him the best piece of advice in his life.

‘He said Terry, you need to get better for you.’

The couple attribute Terry’s road to recovery to therapy and counseling, which he admitted was sort of a taboo growing up in Flint, Michigan.

‘I was like, “This is crazy; this is not me, and all of a sudden I realized it is me,’ he said of his acceptance of his troubles that led him to therapy.

After that, he went on an apology tour, where he sat a number of people in his life down, including his kids.

‘The reason why we wrote this book was the fact that I know I can’t be alone. I can’t be the only guy who went through this,’ he said.

The couple ended by explaining that the book may not be for everybody, but for some, it just may be the perfect story to hear.
