Terry Crews‘ former friend/employee has dropped his $1 million lawsuit against the actor accusing him of cyberstalking and harassment.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Darwin Hall is voluntarily dismissing his lawsuit against the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star. Hall is dismissing all claims against Crews but with the option to refile the case in the future.
As The Blast previously reported, Hall claimed he had been working with Crews since 1999 to help his social media presence.
Hall said he was paid $28,479.06 for his work, with about half of that going to reimbursement for expenses. He claims he is owed payment for more than 6,000 hours of work for Crews, at $55 an hour.
In 2013, Hall claims he booked a gig working for a client who was developing a dating app. Hall says the client was LGBT but the app was not but says when Crews found out, he “flew into a rage.” Hall alleges Crews told him he could not continue to work with Hall if he worked on the project.
According to Hall, Crews promised to repay Hall the money he was forced to repay the client for canceling the gig. But Hall claims Crews never repaid the money and Hall says when he tried to come to a resolution, Crews “retaliated with unbelievable and unlawful cyberstalking, cyberbullying, harassment, and destruction” of Hall’s reputation and business.
Terry Crews posted a series of tweets about Hall (though he did not name him) on Christmas Day of 2017, alleging he sold drugs and claiming Hall “bragged about trying to kill his college roommate by spiking the guys peanut butter with mercury.”
Hall claims a number of Crews’ social media followers contacted him after Crews “actively encouraged and recruited” them to “hunt down and attack” Hall.
He sued Crews demanding the million owed plus unspecified damages for alleged defamation.
