I refused to go low, that's why I've 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 don't know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said)— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
Maybe I'm wrong for not "spilling the beans" Telling the story, THE TRUTH. I feel I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people. But at what cost? I.don't know. Just know, I'm trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn't the right thing about crime. I'm... Just... ?— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
There is a "machine' keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity "machine". No morals, no obligation to truth, and I'm just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
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.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
Pauley Perrette is publicly hinting at possible reasons for her departure.
She starred on NCIS for 15 seasons, and has never stated exactly why she left the show.
There have been rumours of a clash between Perrette and former NCIS costar Mark Harmon.
He brought his rescue dog on-set despite its vicious past; the dog bit a crew member in October 2016, resulting in the need for stitches.
