Terry Crews’ wife Rebecca King plays more than the wife role in the actor’s life, as he never fails to admit while singing her praise.
In April 2022, actor Terry Crews released a new book, “Tough: My Journey to True Power” where he discussed some surprising details about his life, marriage and personal battles. The book also touched on some of the challenges he had to overcome in the course of his life, including a traumatic childhood, the resulting anger issues and his battle with addictions.
While most of these experiences took him bouts of willpower to surpass, he admittedly owes the majority of his wins to his wife of several decades Rebecca King Crews.
Terry Crews once recalled how his wife taught him to deal with his anger issues, by helping him understand when he went overboard with his actions. Recalling the life-changing advice she gave him, Crews divulged:
“You have to understand, you’re going to lose everything. At a minimum, you’re gonna get sued. And at a maximum, someone’s going to kill you. Either the police or you come up on the wrong guy on the wrong day.”
Rebecca made it clear to her husband that she and the kids still needed him, before making him promise to always walk away from violent confrontations rather than indulge his anger.
The former NFL star made that promise and has been able to live up to it with the help of some therapy and his wife’s continuous guidance. So a remarkable woman, wife and mother? What else is known about the wife of actor Terry Crews?
