Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and former NFL player Terry Crews has opened up about his former porn addiction. The 47-year-old admitted that it got so bad that it almost ruined his marriage so he turned to rehab to get help.

Terry started opening up about the addiction when he posted the first of three “Dirty Little Secrets” videos on his Facebook account. He posted the first on February 11, and on Tuesday he posted an eleven minute video discussing how porn kills intimacy and considering why he got addicted to begin with.

Terry has been battling with the addiction from the young age of 12, but things really started to hit home when it began to threaten his relationship with his wife, gospel singer Rebecca King.

“My wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you anymore. I’m out of here.’ And that changed me. I had to change because I realized, yo, this thing is a major, major problem. I literally had to go to rehab for it. The thing that I found, by not telling people, it becomes more powerful, but when you tell, and when you put it out there in the open…it loses it power.”

He went on:

“I didn’t get help to get my wife back. I got help because I needed it. But she did decide to stay with me because she knew I was repenting, she knew I was going to get help, and she knew I was sorry.”

He admits that the addiction was a form of self medication, and acknowledges the stress he put on his family.

“My wife had to go to therapy too, to deal with a lot of the psychological problems that come from it.”
