A few days after her very last episode aired, the actress playing Abby Sciuto opened up about her decision to leave the show. Pauley Perrette took to social media to acknowledge the rumors around her NCIS exit! Here’s what she had to say!
‘I refused to go low, that is why I have never told publicly what happened. But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me. If you believe them, please leave me alone. You clearly do not know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said),’ the actress who portrayed fan favorite Abby for 352 episodes tweeted.
She went on to also write: ‘Maybe I am wrong for not ‘spilling the beans’ Telling the story, THE TRUTH. I feel like I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people. But at what cost? I do not know. Just know, I am trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence is not the right thing about crime. I’m… Just… ?’
‘There is a ‘machine’ keeping me silent and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, powerful publicity ‘machine.’ No morals, no obligation to the truth, and I m just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it,’ Pauley added.
Pauley then told her fans that ‘I have been supporting anti-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it is school or work, that you are required to go to? It is horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing’s worth your safety. Tell someone.’
That sounds horrifying, but it sounds like the actress is not planning on mentioning any names for now. What do you think really happened behind the scenes? Are you sad she is off the show?
