Pauley Perrette Implies She Left “NCIS” Over Multiple Physical Assaults

May 14, 2018 / Posted by:

On May 8th, Pauley Perrette appeared in her final episode as Abby Sciuto on the long-running CBS’ NCIS. Pauley didn’t really give a reason for why she was leaving when it was announced last October, but now we know what might be the reason behind her exit.

At the time, she shot down any rumors that it was because she was fighting with CBS and NCIS.

UsWeekly says that Pauley got real on Twitter this weekend with a series of tweets heavily implying she was the victim of multiple physical assaults and a powerful cover-up.

The tabloid story she refers to might be one published by Radar Online last week, in which a source claimed that Pauley was kicked off the show due to a fight with NCIS star Mark Harmon. In October 2016, Mark’s rescue pitbull Dave allegedly bit a crewmember on set, resulting in a trip to the hospital and 16 stitches. Mark reportedly got Dave some training and he was kept away from the set, until last season when Mark was allegedly forced to bring Dave to work. The source claims that Dave was kept in Mark’s trailer for most of the day, and that the majority of the cast and crew were fine with Dave being on set, except for Pauley. According to the source, Pauley went off on Mark, and later refused to shoot scenes with him or sit near him at table reads.

Radar claims Pauley’s exit from the show is because of her fight with Mark Harmon, but also because was sad about the 2016 death of NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg. Pauley and Mark didn’t share many scenes this season, and they barely appeared together in Pauley’s final episode. As for that crack about a very rich machine keeping her quiet, that might have something to do with Mark Harmon being the fifth highest-paid man on television last year.

NCIS or CBS haven’t responded to Pauley’s claims of assault. And she really doesn’t get into too many specifics about what happened. Was she assaulted by the dog, Dave? Even then, she’s got to elaborate on that. Are we talking a dog bite, an aggressive hump, or just accidentally stepping in one of Dave’s turds on set? I probably wouldn’t quit over stepping in dog doo. I would, however, not be the least bit ashamed of sending CBS the bill for the new pair of shoes I bought after I was forced to toss the soiled ones off a cliff.
