The actress has portrayed one of the lead characters on the show for a full 15 seasons, but her reason for leaving leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.


Pauley Perrette has played the role Abby Scuito in the procedural drama series NCIS since the very first season of the hit crime drama, but it seems that she may have left the show due to physical abuse.

In a series of tweets, the 49-year-old Perrette said that tabloids are spreading lies about her while she is forced to remain silent by a 'very powerful publicity machine.'

She mysteriously added that 'he did it,' but didn't explain who she was referring to, leaving fans to wonder whether someone from the NCIS cast might have assaulted Perrette.


Later, she tweeted about her support for anti-bullying campaigns and said she knows from personal experience now that safety is essential.

"It's horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone," she wrote on Twitter.


Perrette also questioned whether her decision to remain silent was the right course of action to take, but added that her team's safety is her primary concern.

Perrette spoke out before about being stalked and said that her assailant is 'still at it' after 14 years. She works toward having laws amended.

As reported by People, Perrette knows that a restraining order is only a piece of paper and realizes the danger that comes with having one's life on the Internet and on social media.

"Stalkers use the Internet, that’s their main tool. There’s a lot we have to get changed but especially Internet stalking laws,” she added.

Throughout it all, Perrette is thankful for the support she receives from her fans. She feels as though her fans genuinely appreciate the work she has done on NCIS throughout the years.

NCIS airs every Tuesday evening at 8 pm on CBS.
