Terry Crews Regrets How His Porn Addiction Impacted His Relationship With Wife and Kids

When appearing on Dax Shepard's 'Armchair Expert' podcast, the actor also candidly reveals that he did end up cheating on Rebecca King as he was dealing with porn addiction.

AceShowbiz - Terry Crews has once again opened up about his porn addiction. When appearing on Dax Shepard's "Armchair Expert" podcast, the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star admitted that he regrets how his behavior impacted his relationship with his wife, Rebecca King, and their kids.

"So I was walking around a human pile of guilt. And so my wife was like, 'Where were you?' " the 54-year-old recalled. "I'd be like, 'Why are you always checking where I am?...I mean, what are you scared?' So I'd start arguing so she wouldn’t ask more questions. Poor woman."

Terry went on to note that his relationship with his children "was horrible," adding, "My kids, I would be angry at them for getting in the way." He then recounted, "A lot of time in the hotels alone, I would be on the porn channel and then I would feel super guilty and then I would read a bunch of self help. Like 'Okay, let me get back to even here' because I felt bad about myself all the time. I am a failure."

Terry confessed that he "justified" his addiction because he "didn't mess up with another woman." Even people told him, that "it's just natural" to watch porn frequently." He quoted them as saying, It's just who you are. It's no big deal. Your wife's got to understand that, that you're just a man.' "

"And I thought about something like, imagine if your wife was getting money from another guy and you found out, you'd be like, 'Hey honey, why are you getting money from,' " he elaborated. "And you'd be like, 'Hey, but I am here for that.' But see, that's what your woman feels. It's like, 'Wait, wait sex, I'm here for that.' "

During the conversation, Terry also candidly revealed that he did end up cheating on Rebecca. He said that it happened when he "went to a massage parlor in Vancouver" during a point when he was "on a binge." At the time, he was also filming his first-ever film, "The 6th Day".

"I cheated on my wife. I was that dude," the TV host stated. "Like, who officially stepped outside and I had never done that before. I kept that secret for years."

It took Terry 10 years to finally tell his wife about his affair. Though Rebecca left him after he made the confession in 2010, the two got back together when he sought treatment for his porn addiction.
