CBS has responded to claims made by former NCIS star Pauley Perrette alleging “multiple physical assaults.”
She tweeted to her 726,000 followers that there were lies being perpetrated in the media about her and that she was protecting her former crew by remaining silent.
Perrette, who played forensic scientist Abby Sciuto, left the CBS drama after 15 seasons.
I've been supporting ant-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it's school or work, that you're required to go to? It's horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone.

In a statement to Variety, CBS Television Studios said they had worked with her to find a resolution, and reiterated their commitment to a “safe working environment” on all of their shows.
“Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her,” the statement read. “Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
