Actor Terry Crews has opened up about his stint in rehab for pornography addiction in three ‘Dirty Little Secret’ videos posted on his official Facebook page.

The 47-year-old called porn addiction ‘a worldwide problem’ in the first video posted February 11, which has since amassed 45,000 likes.

‘It really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways,’ the brawny ex-NFL linebacker and Brooklyn Nine Nine star confessed.

‘If day turns into night and you are still watching [porn], you probably got a problem. And that was me…Now it’s become my battle to help other people who are going through the same thing.’

Terry’s porn fixation began age 12, before he dealt with it ‘six/seven years ago,’ after it almost cost him his marriage to gospel singer Rebecca King.

‘My wife was literally like, “I don’t know you anymore. I’m out of here,”‘ Crews recalled.

‘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.

‘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.’

The Michigan couple of 26 years have four children – Isaiah, Wynfrey, Tera, and Azriel – and Rebecca also has a daughter Naomi with ex Charles Burton.
